Another fantastic and informative article by (as far as I can tell) Fayetteville's best human.

Lowell says:

"Medicaid for low income adults is virtually unavailable in Arkansas unless you are pregnant or disabled. Families earning more than $3,000 a year or having assets of more than $1,000 don’t qualify."

I had no idea the threshold necessary to receive this benefit was this strict and that you had to be so utterly destitute to receive the help.

That threshold would seem to describe a homeless person or family.

Its not the governments job to take of us or provide health care. If he is so worried about it how about we expand his St Francis program through churches? I'm so sick of this wealthy and their "fair share" bull crap. This church is a wolf in sheep's clothing. Look out!

Thanks for a very thoughtful and well written article. The 'judgement of nations' is something that fundamentalist Christians seem to overlook unless they want more done for Israel.

I would be curious to see a fundamentalist's Bible...do they not have Matthew chapter 25 in them? In my Bible those passages are in red print indicating that it is quoting Jesus. I think it to be a good idea for Christians to follow Jesus.

I sure appreciate the way Lowell leads people with Jesus' teachings. Thank you Lowell, and St. Paul's, for the wonderful way you exemplify the teachings of Jesus to our community.
