A disgraced former Navy chaplain said on Wednesday that he opposed President Barack Obama's health care reform law because it actually "causes cancer."

"Here's my thesis: Obamacare causes cancer," Chaplain Gordon James “Chaps” Klingenschmitt told the viewers of his Pray in Jesus Name Internet show. "Whenever you remove Obamacare and health insurance from 4.9 million Americans, it causes cancer because those people, since they can't afford their premiums, they drop their insurance, they can no longer get cancer treatments!"

Klingenschmitt said that he had gotten a letter from a woman who asked him to visit her friend, who was dying in the hospital of cancer. The friend had waited too long to get treatment because she had dropped her insurance and now could not get insured.

"She makes the illogical leap, that's why we need more Obamacare," the TV chaplain opined. "No, Obamacare is actually the one that killed this poor lady with cancer."
