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.

So now it’s official: The Democrat party truly is Godless.
How could ANY Christian or Catholic (which includes MOST Hispanics) be a Democrat? Voting ‘Democrat’ is blasphemous.
DNC: God is dead.
God: DNC is toast...............
The look on his face at about 1:00 tells all.
...gotta make room for Homsexual Marriage!
Makes sense....Obama recites the preamble to the Declaration of Independence with the words “by our Creator” omitted.
They don’t like the idea of ‘God-given rights’ since they believe that ‘Government’ gives rights......
When do they put in Allah?
What do you want to bet that the Great Teacher, our Heavenly Father, is going to teach the Obama crowd an important lesson?
They have deserted God for a gay Allah that approves of slaughtering infidel children in the womb. Why would anyone expect Democrats to honor a God who disagrees with everything they stand for? They hate God.
It was dropped because of a cease and desist order from the Man Upstairs.
Would be interesting to tally the number of times the word ‘God’ is said throughout this convention, versus the Republican’s convention.
They left God long ago. They’re just now filing the papers.
"Just as the weeds are collected and burned up with fire, so will it be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will collect out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all evildoers, and they will throw them into the furnace of fire, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Let anyone with ears listen!"
I know not what to make of a republic of 30 million atheists” - John Adams
Amen to that!
Wouldn’t want to be anywhere near that convention, that’s fer sure! He used fire from the sky to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah; He used water to flood the earth in the days of Noah; He split the Red Sea to allow Moses to lead His people across and then let the waters flow onto Pharaoh and his army...He who is the Alpha and the Omega definitely can deal with the dummy dems...
“How could ANY Christian or Catholic (which includes MOST Hispanics) be a Democrat? ...
Add: ...scientist, engineer, anyone having a good high school education (e.g., not public schooled), military...”
A democrat is an enemy.
A sleezy, ill-educated, piece of Obamastuff enemy.
Gd’s been out of the Democrat party for a very long time.
Thanks, at least now it is writing.
I bet the lesson will be swift and decisive. This psalm hits the nail on the head:
What is wrong with the DEMS and their always touting “hard work”? My Dad, a wise man, taught us to be smart, to look smart and let those who did not invest in themselves, do the “hard work”. Use your head and not your back!
Not having God in the Dem Party platform is no surprise to me. They take the separation of God FROM State at their peril.
“Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.” Romans 1:21.
Was there ever a more concise and accurate description of our country today, and especially the Democrat party?
The RAT-lib-commie-feminazi womyn better not turn around and look back — remember Sodom and Gomorrah and Lot’s wife!
The platform is becoming: There is no God but Allah. And Obama is his prophet.
What lesson did He teach us in 2008?
I think the rest of Chapter 1 of Romans is appropriate:
“For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.
24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creatorwho is forever praised. Amen.
26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.
28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know Gods righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.”
They have to be relegated to a status where they can do the rest of us no harm.
So the Democrat platform is omitting God.
Perhaps St. Elijah the Thunderer will be visiting their convention on the day that obama speaks.
Then the Dims may be singing a different tune!!!!
I like it!!! LOL
Has been true for years, this makes it official and 0 is their god.
Isaiah 1 is pretty good. It talks about them praying and worshiping, only He doesn’t listen to them, for they do vile and repulsive things, and call them part of God. He says: I don’t know you.
“What lesson did He teach us in 2008?”
That if conservatives stay home they will get Obama?
Now THAT makes sense....LOL!
The Democrats neither believe in God-given talent, nor God-given rights. If you don’t believe in God-given rights of man, the constitution is meaningless and we are left with all rights emanating from the state.
This is the problem that we ran into with Justice Roberts. He obviously doesn’t believe in God-given rights, which also negates the check and balance system as laid out in the constitution.
They should change their name to the Reprobate Party.
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.
