The Brody File has calls into DNC to explain why God’s name has been dropped from the platform. Some critics will suggest that when you have planks in your platform that support abortion rights and gay marriage then it's no wonder that God's name would be dropped as well.

How could ANY Christian or Catholic (which includes MOST Hispanics) be a Democrat? Voting ‘Democrat’ is blasphemous.

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......

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.

For sure He will .... the question is, will we see it before this happens ...

"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!"

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...

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.

Period.

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?

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 Creator—who 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 God’s 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.”

So the Democrat platform is omitting God.

Perhaps St. Elijah the Thunderer will be visiting their convention on the day that obama speaks.

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.

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.

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!

God is no longer a part of the Democrat platform?

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."
