Colorado state representative Gordon Klingenschmitt (R) on Thursday said that Americans should turn to God rather than the government for health care.
The former Navy chaplain was commenting on a Fox News poll that showed 58 percent of respondents wanted to repeal Obamacare, reported Right Wing Watch.
"We ought to look to the Lord for our health care," Klingenschmitt said during his PIJN News program.
"He said, 'If you listen carefully to the Lord your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord, who heals you,'" he continued, quoting Exodus 15.
"Isn't that inspiring? I personally prefer to look to almighty God as my healer and not to the government as a substitute god or substitute healer," Klingenschmitt added, before praying. "Father in Heaven, we turn away from the idolatry that so many have in their hearts, that they think government is a better healer than Jesus. But, Jesus, we know you are the healer."
