Durbin Attacks Fox News: God Is Not A Franchise Of Republican Party
breitbart.com ^ | 09-04-2012 | Staff

Posted on 09/05/2012 4:29:40 AM PDT by bronxville

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

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!

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.

I saw his interview on Fox yesterday before I finally had to turn it off. He did everything but answer the question. Bret kept re-asking and Durbin kept trying to deflect the question and project blame. It was comical. How do idiots like this end up getting elected?

That’s the irony isn’t it. It’s not a matter of being without sin, but rather a DNC that is openly and actively telling their GOD that they refuse to follow Him.

I can not imagine how a Christian reconciles themself to voting democrat, given the party’s active support of abortion, gay marriage, etc.

I have never been able to reconcile this in my mind. They may have deluded themselves into thinking they are Christian, but they cannot be - the two positions are not compatible.

The only thing that impresses me more about Durbin than his intellectual brilliance or his unshakable patriotism is his profound humility.

I cannot imagine it either; nevertheless, I know of one family that still votes Democrat to this day inspite of their heavily conservative Christian beliefs.

They live in a very rural area.......no news.....no internet....still believing it’s Andrew Jackson and Harry Truman’s party. Rare, but some folks like that are still around.

A personal note to Durbin and the DNC:

Mark 8: 38 "If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his Father’s glory with the holy angels.”

The reason God is gone from the DemonCrat Party platform is very simple:

GOVERNMENT IS NOW THE OFFICIAL GOD OF THE DEMONCRAT PARTY.

The word "Government" can now be inserted in all the pertinent places, i.e., "In Government We Trust", "Government Bless the USA".

One can also argue that Obama himself is now the official god. However, Obama is but the exalted and long-awaited Messiah of the God of Government.

He is the savior who will answer all the world's problems. He will bring an era of peace and prosperity to the despairing and disenfranchised of the planet. He is the liberator who will enforce justice for his people and his country.

Once we know the structure of our potential new state religion, all else falls into place....including the unelected disciples (the czars), the new sacrament (gay marriage), graven images (the hideous sand sculpture of the Messiah in Charlotte), human sacrifice (abortion) and enforced 'tithing' (confiscatory taxation to support the good works emanating from the Universal Church of Saints Franklin and Barack, Washington, DC ).

The official hymn of the new state religion....."Oh, Government, Our Help in Ages Past, Our Hope for Years to Come"

No one who believes in queer “marriage” and murdering the unborn is a Christian who believes in the Bible. Show me in the Bible where God says it’s OK for two sodomites to get
“married” and show me where he says it’s OK to murder your
own children? This democrat party is the most anti-Biblical party in the nation’s history. You either believe in the Bible, ALL OF THE BIBLE, or you are not Christian. You are a hypocrite who should crawl under a rock.

Well, there are folks in the Christain Left who believe that sin is okay because they believe in Hippie Surfer Jesus who pats them on he head and says, “Dude, like, it’s all cool! Like, I love you and wouldn’t mean to you an’ stuff.” Please note, this is not the Jesus of the Bible, but rather an imitation of Jesus that the Left contorts to fit their image.

She’s also a registered democrat.

Explain that to me. How can she be a member of a political party that refuses to acknowledge God?
