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.
Please freepmail me if you want on/off this list
I look at this a being a confirmation of their actions.
They’ve been Godless for a long time. We’re better off with them putting it in writing.
Same as it ever was.
A two party system. The Godless party and the gutless party.
God willing, all references to Democrats will be removed from the American platform
They don’t want anyone to see this:
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.
The American left are indistinguishable from Europeans these days.
Don't want to offend anyone you know...
God Removes All References To The Democratic Party From His Heavenly Platform...
Yes. Just like the republican convention removed all reference of conservative, tea party or grass roots.
Probably because for most Democrats, Obama is their God.
I heard this on the radio today as I was driving.....unreal.
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.
Dear Iron Butterfly:
We were wondering if we could play your song at our convention on a church organ, but we would like to change the words to: `In Obama Da Vida.’
Are you cool with that?

Dem platform backs taxpayers subsidies for abortion through birth

Just the Thursday night coronation speech is scheduled for the stadium.
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 its 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.
Nerves are fraying when the truth is exposed.
The devil Donks will put atheism on its platform in 2016.
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.
The bottom picture is very offensive, and in face, blasphemous.
As a Catholic I am very offended by that picture — can it be removed?
That should have been “in fact” blasphemous.
I am surprised they had any mention of God for the past dozen years, at the least.
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.
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.
“The partys leadership isnt even pretending anymore.”
Is George Soros (György Schwartz) in the house?
The modern RAT party has shown themselves to be, without any doubt or question, an enemy of the USA.
They are making their bed and they will now have to lie in it.
We should probably pray for these people and that is about all we can do. They are now truly on their own. Sure glad I know Who I can call on, and it ain’t the government.
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.
Freepmail wagglebee to subscribe or unsubscribe from the moral absolutes ping list.
It's clear. Vote the Demon Party out.
The icon picture is an accurate representation of the Dim adoration of the Great Messiah. This is not a picture of the Christ, it is a simple Icon of the Left’s new God.
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.
The socialist used to hide their hate for the United States of America, Christians, Guns, and God (not necessarily in that order) but, now,, the socialist believe they have this Country right where they want it and don't care what the American people think of them!
WAKE UP AMERICA, YOU ARE BEING PLAYED BY THESE SOCAILIST!!!!!
re: Yes. Just like the republican convention removed all reference of conservative, tea party or grass roots.
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
We were not happy with that, but it is not just like removing all references to God.
I agree, I was just pointing out that both parties are trying to get rid things they don’t like.
...this is going to piss off the Muslim supporters....
Evil often announces it’s intentions. So we get a preview of what the d&c has in mind for those “bitter clingers” who believe in God. Nice bunch, eh?
If anyone wanted an idea of what hitler had in mind for Jews, all they needed to do was pick up a copy of mein kampf.
ok, I understand
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.
