Democrats Remove All References To “God” From Party Platform…
Weasel Zippers ^ | September 4, 2012

Posted on 09/04/2012 1:36:04 PM PDT by NYer

Who needs God when you have Chicago Jesus?

Via The Blaze:

The Democratic Party may be getting a fair amount of attention this week — and not only because the political movement is hosting its national convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. Another point of focus has already been the contents — or the lack thereof — present in the 2012 Democratic Party Platform.

Earlier today, we told you that the document fails to mention Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, a proclamation that was previously touted by the party. And now, in an even more shocking revelation, CBN News is reporting that the Democrats have removed mentions of “God” from the document as well.

This is a departure from the past. In 2008, the platform read (emphasis added), “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.”

This might explain the initial reluctance to invite Cardinal Dolan to deliver the final prayer.

They’ve always believed, and headed this way. They’ve just decided to actually “go for it” - admit what they are, and stop lying about it. My guess is they are finally realizing that the new media has stripped them bare on this, might as well stop lying abou it.

I just saw the Dem convention opening ceremony. Even though they moved it from the 70K capacity stadium to the 20K capacity auditorium, the crowd still looked sparse. It looked like there were maybe 5 to 8 thousand. The crowd would have been lost in the stadium that was to be the original venue. Lots of Dems stayed home.

Why should anyone be surprised that the mere mention of the word “God” would send shivers down the spine of the Democratic faithful? After all, the same platform says it’s a good idea for two men to get married; the public needs to pay for all abortions; there is no demand that Hamas stop terrorism against Israelis; the public must pay for a healthcare policy it manifestly rejects; the Catholic non-profit community must fork up money to pay for abortion-inducing drugs, etc.

The Obama administration has a “God problem.” On several occasions, President Obama has omitted the words “by their Creator” when citing the Declaration of Independence. He has also erroneously said that the national motto is “E Pluribus Unum”; it is “In God We Trust.” Now the Democratic Platform has deleted the word “God” when discussing our “God-given potential.” In 2008, the Platform spoke to the issue of having a government that “gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their God-given potential.” The italics, which I added, have been deleted from the 2012 Platform.

The Catholic League appreciates honesty and transparency, even when it signifies something pernicious. On this basis, we commend the Democrats for being so straightforward.

Fox news has Durban in fits over this. He keeps filibustering , accusing Bret Baier who just calmly asks him why the word God was taken out.

Just watched Brett Baire interview Dick Turbin at the DNC:

BB: The dem platform omits the words "God" and "Jerusalem" (although both had been included prior to 2012), can you tell me why?

DD: If you are concluding that (we) are godless, you're wrong, both parties are god fearing!!

BB: Just asking "why"?.

DD: Is that Fair and Balanced? The republicans don't have a franchise on god!!

BB: OK, but why remove those words?

DD: I was on two platform committees (but not this one)...nobody reads the platform, why are you harping on an unread platform!!

BB: You know democrats did the same thing to the Republican platform last week. Why did the dems remove God and Jerusalem this week?

DD: Harry Truman was the first American president to recognize Israel!!!

(BB thought bubble: That figures you pathetic moron, Truman was the prez in 1948 when Jews were still struggling to get home after Auschwitz.)

...This is paraphrased, but you get the idea.
No loaded questions, no questions answered, total active (aggressive) defense, and pretty clear indication of how the OZero convention plans to deal with FOX.

Maybe I’m naive, but this is shocking. The party’s leadership isn’t even pretending anymore. I realize that politics is someting that is left to us mortals, but a simple acknowlegement wouldn’t hurt any reasonable person, regardless of their beliefs or lack of. Now we know what we’re dealing with. All that’s left is to get the news out and the MSM won’t be doing it.

As an Orthodox Christian, I want to second Salvation's request for the removal of the blasphemous "icon" of Obama.

The reason it is blasphemous is that the cross and Greek lettering in the nimbus are used only in icons of Christ, 'ο ων, "the existing one" is the Greek version of the name God gives to Moses during his encounter with God in the burning bush, and is used to depict the fact of Jesus's Divinity. However much tumblindice may think that Obama regards himself as God, or wants to be worshipped in place of God, or is an antichrist, it is offensive to traditional Christians to communicate that belief with a blasphemous picture.

Please remove the picture, or if need be the entire post. tumblindice is welcomed to repost the PeoplesCube graphic of Obama saying stupid things about Jesus and Joseph if he really thinks it contributes to the discussion.

No, the picture from PeoplesCube of Obama saying stupid things about Our Lord Jesus Christ and St. Joseph the Betrothed in post 14 (which you’ll note I suggested you repost after post 14 is removed, if you think it really contributes to the discussion) and the pictures in the post to which I’m replying (which probably also should be taken down, since they serve no purpose but to be offensive) are merely offensive.

The faux “icon” of Obama is blasphemous for the reason I stated in post 34: it visually asserts that Obama is God by applying the Greek version of YHWH to him. Whatever administrator has the power do so should remove it. Let the calendar-selling nitwits in Charlotte commit blasphemy if they want to. Free Republic, America’s exclusive site for God, Family, Country, Life & Liberty conservatives, as the header on the Forum describes the site, should not be rendering blasphemous pictures, not even, as I noted in post 34 if you mean instead to assert that Obama puts himself in the place of God or is an antichrist.

They can vote God out. I don't think it is wise in any way for a country to deny God's covenant to Israel( Gen 12, Gen 15) or to erase God as the all knowing, all powerful, all loving.

They can choose to erase G!D which of course is obvious what they're doing. God also has a book, and He can and WILL blot out their name in His book and that is more scary than anything this administration is doing or will do.

Since this is really the last country that has sent missionaries and had freedom of religion there is now no place for those persecuted religions and worshipers of the one true God to run; this is it. The minions have surrounded Israel, the fools( psalm 2, Psalm 14:1) have said now there is no God, therefore because of the fools of our nation(s) because of the foolishness of our government God will give them over to their apostacy, the church of laodecia, the book of Jude, their own social justice( Book of Judges).

Nothing more to say or write tonight.

Indeed I love and fear God.

indeed I fear ther will be a time in the near future we must all stand before magistrates and the 'law," and either take it bowing down of be thrown in to nebuchadnezzars flaming furnace.

Unless he ruturns suddenly, and I fully expect it to be so, but should the LORD tarry, I will die loving He who looved me so much He idied for me, he was patient enough to allow me this time to live, and I will NOTY throw away all I believe, all HE has shown me, all HE has give, the Lord gives and he takes away, blessed be the name of the Lord

Naked came I into this world, naked I shall leave, blessed be HIS WORD!

I cleave to HIS every word,

his every deed,

His every promise

and His everlasting love.

I pray for strenght for all of us to not stray, to not bend nor move from His holy road

Even so come quickly O Lord;

in Your time, until then I will be on my knees praying,

and counting hollow points.

Yes, they are just finally conceding that they don’t even want to appeal to middle America anymore. They think that their little coalition of the disgruntled is strong enough to win elections without those ordinary Joes and Janes that they used to throw a few bones to. We’ll see in November if that bet pays off.

I doubt it will, especially in state and local races.
