I’m having troubles with this whole debate over drug testing for welfare issue. I haven’t read a lot about it, but I think just by the few articles I’ve read, i get the gist of the whole thing. Here is my take: I can see why so many people back the idea, i guess. I saw a guy on twitter say, “we have to test to make money, they should test to get money”. Fair enough.
But there is something inside that says this is wrong. Does testing for welfare take away from any american rights? More so, does it not take away human rights and dignity? Let’s take a minute to look at this, because I believe that it does take away from a person’s dignity. I know that there are people who take advantage of the system, but whenever there is a system made, someone will always take advantage of it.
So i guess my question is this – Drug Testing for Welfare: is it helping or taking away from people? Also, as a Christian, how does one stand on this issue? Do we simply support the masses who are saying that it’s a great thing, or do we lean on the side of dignity?
