God And Jerusalem Back In Democrat Platform Almighty And Israel Must Be So Relieved ^ | 09/09/2012 | Don Feder

Comedy Central’s audience must have fallen way off in the past few days. What’s stand-up compared to the farce of the 2012 Democratic Nominating Convention?

Those evangelicals who are still muttering about Mitt’s religion should think about this: It took a Mormon to get a president who claims to be an evangelical to put God back in his party’s platform.

In response to the initial omission, Romney said of the Party of Abortion and Gay Marriage – and illegal immigration and voter fraud – “I think their having purposely removed God from their platform suggests a party which is increasingly out of touch with the mainstream of the American people.”

That’s all it took for the White House damage-control team to scramble, as visions of Republican campaign ads danced in their heads: “Democrats think God is a four-letter word.”

Wall Builders David Barton calls Obama “America’s most Biblically-hostile President.” Little wonder.

• He refused to have National Day of Prayer ceremonies at the White House, while never missing a chance to have a White House dinner to mark the end of Ramadan. He also had the first get-acquainted meeting for atheists.

• Twice issued Thanksgiving Day proclamations that failed to mention God. So, who exactly are we supposed to be thankful to?

• Twice misquoted the Declaration of Independence, leaving out the words “endowed by their Creator” before “inalienable rights.”

• Claimed “e pluribus unum” is our national motto, not “In God We Trust.” He also quoted the Gettysburg Address leaving out “that this nation under God.”

• Rejected a move to include FDR’s D-Day prayer in a World War II memorial.

• When he spoke at Georgetown University, required the school to conceal a monogram symbolizing Jesus’ name.

• Nominated three pro-abortion ambassadors to the Vatican – all rejected by the Holy See. This is a president who is exquisitely sensitive to the feelings of Muslims, and no other faith community.

• Picked an EEOC Commissioner who said religious beliefs should not be allowed to interfere with sexual “equality.”

• Revoked conscience protection for health care workers, requiring them to participate in procedures that violate the principles of their faith.

• Required religious institutions to provide contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs through their health insurance (the contraceptive mandate).

• Forgiveness for student loans based on public service will no longer include religiously based service.

• Banned the distribution of Bibles at Walter Reed Army Hospital – later reversed after an outcry by veterans groups.

• Obama’s State Department recently dropped coverage of religious persecution from its annual Human Rights report. This comes at a time when Christians are regularly tortured and murdered for their faith in the Muslim world.

• In 2009, Obama gave $50 million to the United Nations’ Population Fund, which supports China’s forced abortion/sterilization campaign.

• Supports the anti-Biblical homosexual-rights agenda, including “gay marriage.” U.S. diplomats were ordered to participate in gay-pride parades overseas, including those in countries which still honor their religious heritage.

• Nominated judges who deliberately distort the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause while intentionally ignoring its Free Exercise Clause, as well as discriminating against believers in other ways.

Unfortunately it seems the young agree with this “God free” idea. I point to the young “conservatives” who follow Paul and seem to be more hostile to Christians than Democrats.

I really doubt either gives a flying #.
