Durbin Attacks Fox News: God Is Not A Franchise Of Republican Party

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) “Well, I can just basically tell you that if the narrative that is being presented on your station and through your channel and your network is that Democrats are Godless people, they ought to know better,” Durbin said. “God is not a franchise of the Republican Party. Those of us who believe in God, and those of us who have dedicated our lives to helping others in the name of God don’t want to take a second seat to anyone who is suggesting that one word out of the platform means that the Democrats across America are godless.”

The Empty Chair dumped God from their platform and now whine that Repubs are shocked and Durbin is far left. One wonders did he vote for this bill which includes us having to pay for contraceptives and abortions.

Cake and eat it party.

When they got rid of God they must have forgotten about Cardinal Dolan closing their Godless convention with prayers to God - he'll also pray about abortions.

Sounds like Durbin is confusing a career in politics with a holier calling.

If you notice, Brett Baer asked Durbin why it was removed. Durbin did a classic maneuver: ATTACK THE OTHER PERSON SO HE NEVER ANSWERS THE QUESTION!!! Brett asked him three times I think... Durbin avoided it three times. Classic

Since government is his god, he thinks he is a priest of sorts I bet.

the narrative that is being presented...is that Democrats are Godless people

I think a platform that celebrates in utero murder and homosexual 'marriage' kind of supports that notion.

I DVRed this last night and just watched it. Durbin was absolutely OBNOXIOUS and Bret showed infinite patience in trying to get him to answer the question as to why the word God was removed and the language about Jerusalem was changed. How anyone (except a “yellow-dog Democrat” could watch this exchange and not be completely turned off, I will never understand!

I want to wear a sign that says “Christians cannot vote for Democrats”. Maybe I will get a sweatshirt that says that and walk around philly. Yup. That is what I'll do. Thanks for the inspiration.

House Democrats Blocking Bill Seeking To Aid Christians And Other Persecuted Religious Minorities In Muslim Countries…

...”Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.), who authored the House bill, says he learned that Sen. Jim Webb (D-Va.) is behind the hold.”...

They’ve earned the title especially since this conference when they denounced Him pubically.

No it’s not. But if you truly believe, you live your life accordingly. You don’t support and promote to impressionable young children the idea that sodomy is the new “normal”. And you certainly don’t vote for leaving a baby who survives an abortion on the cutting room floor as Obama did.

I'm not a big fan of Bret Baier, but last night he stood up to Turbin and kept asking and reasking the question.

Turbin said something like, are you insinuating that the democrat party is a Godless party?

Well, you're platform sure is!

The only place where that narrative is being presented is in the Democrap Party Platform. Durbin was only asked why.

I tried watching some of this last night.

I was particularly struck, if that’s the right word, by the black man that served 4 years in the military, said that he was a Christian and was singing Ears’s praises to the heavens.

All i could think of was how this was perverting an opportunity to really witness. I don’t know how he could stand up there and said what he did.

This is the same “Dick Turban” who compared our fighting forces in Iraq & Afghanistan to Nazis, then delivered a clenched teeth snarling `apology’ on the Senate floor.

Jerk.

Uh, yes it does and most people at that convention are Godless who worship gummit. The Party is nothing more than a Godless cult.

Pray for America

‘...the narrative that is being presented...is that Democrats are Godless people’.

By their fruits you shall know them.
