Some Quote Scripture But Ignore Needy

Orlando Sentinel columnist Scott Maxwell contrasts two groups who quote Scripture as they address health issues. One group is Shepherd's Hope, which raises money and volunteers to treat the low-income uninsured.

The other is a group of Republicans in Tallahassee, who in Maxwell's words are "scrambling for excuses to turn away billions of dollars in federal money to provide health care for the poor."

Only one of the groups is living the Gospel, he writes.
