Cardinal Dolan went into the den of the devil. What I saw in the last 3 days of “their” convention astounded me.

The brazeness of their excesses and demands to the intolerance and denial...such is what was on display for all America to see.

One can’t help but think about their convention in a religous context. A Biblical context and not have your very heart & soul ponder the evil that was on display. You might think what I am writing is over the top, but deep down you are just as bothered by it as I am. A lot of my conservative friends are more than distressed by the display they saw.

This is not the democrat party of even 4 years ago. For all our battling to ‘get our party back,’ one has to be amazed at where the Democrat party has gone.

This post might get pulled, but consider...

3 times the denial of God, (and none wept bitterly like Peter) for this sin.

The ‘war on women’ battlecry? The conversation here is not about denying women anything, it is about who is going to pay for HER CHOICES(Harlots and whores?).

Consider carefully some of the insights into who or what the Whore of Babylon is considered to be. I offer this version for consideration...keep in mind what the democrat convention discussed...Jeruseleum, God, and fornication...

When John introduces the Whore in Revelation 17, he tells us: “Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, ‘Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who is seated upon many waters, with whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and with the wine of whose fornication the dwellers on earth have become drunk.’ And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness, and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of b.asphemous names, and it had seven heads and ten horns. The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and bedecked with gold and jewels and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the impurities of her fornication; and on her forehead was written a name of mystery: ‘Babylon the great, mother of harlots and of earth’s abominations.’ And I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. When I saw her I marveled greatly” (Rev. 17:1–6).

This passage tells us several things about the Whore: (1) She is an international power, since she “sits on many waters,” representing different peoples (17:15), and she has committed fornication with “the kings of the earth,” and she has inflamed “the dwellers on earth” with her fornication. (2) She is connected with the seven-headed Beast from Revelation 13:1–10. That Beast was a major pagan empire, since its symbolism combined animal elements from four other major pagan empires (compare Rev. 13:1–2 with Dan. 7:1–8). (3) The Woman is connected with royalty, since she is dressed in the royal color purple. (4) The Woman is rich, for she is “bedecked with gold and jewels and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup.” (5) She has committed some kind of fornication, which in Scripture is often a symbol of false religion—lack of fidelity to the God who created heaven and earth. (6) She is symbolically known as Babylon. (7) She is a central cause of “abominations” in the land, abominations being a reference to practices, especially religious practices, that are offensive to God. And (8) she persecutes Christians “the saints and . . . martyrs of Jesus.”

While the rest of her description could refer to a number of things, the symbolic designation “Babylon” narrows it down to two: pagan Rome and apostate Jerusalem. It is well known that the early Church Fathers referred to pagan Rome as “Babylon”; however, there are also indications in Revelation that the Whore might be apostate Jerusalem. Historically, a number of commentators, both Protestant and Catholic, have adopted this interpretation.

Where did this come from? Oddly enough...

And let’s talk about this thought...all the people ‘prepping’ to shelter/bug out etc. In Revelations it says that Christians, God’s people, will be called out of her to not share in her punishments. Are we really witnessing the preperations for God’s call?

apostate Jerusalem, what is that?

That is not the Jerusalem the Jesus re-establishes. The democrats deny Jerusalem...

3 times the denial of God...

First. I want to very careful not to "point out their speck while ignoring my plank".

However, I got a sense that this was more than just a floor vote at a convention. For me it was as if the camera could almost pan backward and bring into view the judgment seat of God.

Methinks the democrat party - and perhaps by extension, the USA - has finally sealed their (our???) doom by not implicitly denying God (condoning abortion, homosexuality, etc.), but in fact by EXPLICITLY - 3 times - denying his supremacy.

Perhaps Rev. Wright is finally correct. It may be "God DAMN America" - unless we repent...
