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.

Number of times God appears in party platforms - 2008 vs 2012 (by my count)
Republican Platform (2008) 2
Republican Platform (2012) 10
Democrat Platform (2008) 1
Democrat Platform (2012) 0

Make sense with their new official support for marriage redefinition.
Exactly. We should call abortion, contraception and unbiblical marriage all government-given “rights” instead of inalienable rights. And like all so called government-given “rights” it’s by very definition not inalienable.

It’s more a grimace- his whole face twitches. Creepy indeed.
Where is that sign from?
If somebody else has to provide you with something, it is not a ‘right’.
No government can give you anything unless it first takes it from someone else........
If the main stream media had one principled reporter with 2 balls to rub together, he/she would point this out...and the backlash would propel the Dims backwards in their immediate do-over....”That was an unintended an unfortunate clerical oversight....let us know how the polls react, and we will determine if someone needs to be fired....or promoted.
Obama’s Godless America. Now they’re no longer hiding it. They’re shamelessly advertising it. How anyone can vote for this POS is beyond me. They are a disgrace to every soldier who ever fought and died for America. Our government has been hijacked by atheists, degenerates, homosexuals, lesbians, illegal invaders, America-haters.. EVIL PEOPLE.
Virtually all of the military was educated in public schools.
I’d love to drop “them” from the platform.
Dems Drop ‘God’ From Party Platform...
DNC Video: ‘The Government Is The Only Thing We All Belong To’...
Wow, throwing God into the trash-bin as old fashioned and passé, and worshiping ‘The Government’, doesn’t seem like a very wise thing to do. The way things are going these Godless progressives are going to need all the help they can get, especially Divine intervention.
However, it does confirm what we suspected all along. The Democratic Party has moved way over to the extreme Left, especially since Obama gained power. And all the Socialist, Marxist Pragmatists, Communists, and anti-isms, that we knew were hidden in the Democratic Party for years, now feel it’s safe to come out of the shadows. “Let all the Poisons that lurk in the mud, hatch out”- I Claudius
Who needs God when you can worship the Obama-Messiah?
The party of the godless, for the godless, and by the godless.
Christians should not pay any heed to that pagan prophecy. Besides, they were probably just counting down to the release of The Hobbitt.
Agreed. That’s why the only true rights are “negative” rights, i.e., the things that government cannot do to its citizens. Alleged “positive” rights which Maobama and his fellow lefties advocate always violate the “negative” rights of one or more other people and are not true rights at all.
