Posted on 09/04/2012 11:38:03 AM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia
Guess what? Gods name has been removed from the Democratic National Committee platform.
This is the paragraph that was in the 2008 platform:
We need a government that stands up for the hopes, values, and interests of working people, and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their God-given potential.
Now the words God-given have been removed. The paragraph has been restructured to say this:
We gather to reclaim the basic bargain that built the largest middle class and the most prosperous nation on Earth the simple principle that in America, hard work should pay off, responsibility should be rewarded, and each one of us should be able to go as far as our talent and drive take us.

Barry doesn’t want anybody worshipping anybody but him.
Amen to that! I believe we will have to give an account for our vote before God. That’s why I voted for Santorum. Now I have the choice between a godless democrat who believes in gay marriage, abortion, and federally funded contraceptives and person of character that promotes Godly values, albeit from a heretical sect. My choice is Romney. Now fire away!
Romney believes in lots of gods. Including himself. That’ll solve everything. Right. Barring a miracle (from the true God), we are doomed.
Re: So now its official: The Democrat party truly is Godless
I pray that Cardinal Dolan does not appear before this Godless bunch.
Kind of like Lot, as the last god-fearing person to leave Sodom.
All signs are continuing to point to 12-21-12 as not just another day when the Mayan stone-cutter walked off the calendar job and said, "That's enough."
Government is their god. Hussien is just their prophet.
Communists hate the mention of God.
Wonder if they are gonna drop ‘dam*ed’, too?
Dems dropped God a long time ago. They are just now getting around to making it formal.
“the simple principle that in America, hard work should pay off, responsibility should be rewarded”
Was this said between the third or fourth bong hit?
Pretty creepy stuff. It appears like he actually parsed it out himself. I wonder if it was on the teleprompter and he edited it himself on the fly. You can see his eyes blinking a little, as he was catching himself before he read the next line.
I sent Drudge the link to Brody’s article - it’s Drudge’s headlines now!
They can go to Hell.
G_d doesn't "bargain"!
He promises, and delivers!
Someone else "bargains". He lies, cheats, steals, and murders too!
The stakes in this coming election have never been higher.
What took them so long?
Harry Reid just said, “Trust through transparency” and “Who is Mitt Romney?.. But America knows Barack Obama!” WTF? Am I living in a reverse parallel universe or what?
I find it interesting that they specifically mentioned the “middle class” in the 2012 platform but not in the 2008 one. It’s as if Rats subtly are saying there’s something wrong with using that not-God-given-potential-according-to-them to be so successful that you move ABOVE the middle class.
