Tea Party Leader: “I Hope Supreme Court Justices Get Colon Cancer”
For people who claim to be driven by Christian values, members of the Tea Party certainly aren’t acting like it. Take for example the Tea Party leader in New Hampshire who, after learning of the Supreme Court’s decision on The Affordable Care Act, said he hoped the Justices who ruled in favor of the legislation contracted colon cancer. Here is the entire quote from Merrimack Patch:
Former Town Councilor Mike Malzone, the founder of the Merrimack Tea Party, said Thursday in a Facebook post reacting to the Supreme Court ruling on health care, “I hope the (5 supremes) get colon cancer.”
A day after posting the message, Malzone said he stands by what he said. He clarified that he doesn’t want anyone to die, and the cancer reference was more to make a point that he wants them to feel the pain being inflicted on Americans being overburdened by taxes.
I don’t know how anyone could wish upon someone a potentially terminal disease, then turn right around and say they never wished for them to die. Either way, this values driven Tea Partier should ask himself, what would Jesus do? Don’t recall him ever wishing a painful disease upon anyone.
