Don’t worry. They will put it in the wording of the platform but do everything possible to remove God from our existence. This should also make the Israeli’s feel much safer.

At least half of the dems voted against using God's name in their platform and making Israel our best friend in the Middle East. We are doomed if Obama wins. Revelations.

Chair railroaded voice vote - amazing video to see! Ayes and Nays, at best, 50/50. Had to do vote 3X! Still about 50/50 each time. Chair said 2/3 Ayes threshold had been met. The assembled patrons at the Star Wars Bar booed mightily!! Dems booed God and Jerusalem!

They don’t really mean it. It holds as much weight as Obama’s Executive Order to shore up with Stupak to pass Obamacare by restricting abortion.

Didn’t really mean it.

Obama was losing the black Christian vote and the Jewish vote. Polling poorly, had to revamp the platform.

Next week, they will be bitching about those who “cling to religion” again.

"Little Dick Durbin must have caught a lot of sh_t."

I think his flip-out helped move the Dums off the dime. To see it was going to take that much effort from a moron like Turbin to try to get godlessness over, why that's just not the Democrat way. Easier to lie about it to their followers than to their enemies!

They just “deemed” it passed, over the boos of the delegates. It obviously did not have 2/3rds approval.

Watch how fast the major media buries this one.
Can you just IMAGINE the hours of media coverage had the RNC done something like this?

The DNC Platform is in direct contemp of God, and those people for whom God is of their writings, e.g., the Jews. Being that the Bible is comprised of both the Old Jewish Torah (5 books) within the OT, the NT is the prophet realized as Jesus for Christians....

It does not matter that the DNC may reinstate God for they have poked him in the eye with Gay marriage, abortion and socialism. The very fact they feel compelled to HIDE their contemp for God, Christians and by furter extenion the people of Isreal it is certain they saw polling numbers that was the only murder they worry about which is at the polls.

The real story here is what a farce the voice vote of the delegates turned into. Obviously assuming that everyone would go along, they took a voice vote and the number of yeses and nos sounded virtually identical. The chair, Antonio Villaraigosa looked stunned and didn’t know what to do next. After an awkward few moments, he called for another vote, and received similar results.

Apparently, their rules required a two-thirds affirmative vote to pass the platform amendment. So, he tried a third time and upon hearing nearly the same thing again just went ahead and declared that the amendment had received a two-thirds “yes” vote and passed it. It was hilarious.

I guess he had observed Obama ruling by fiat so often that he just decided to do the same. I also guess the divided vote indicates that at least half of the delegates don’t agree with mentioning God or with declaring Jerusalem to be Israel’s capital. And I suspect most of the other half voted “yes” strictly for political perception.

It was a glorious display of the libs’ incompetence and buffoonery.

Does this mean that B.O. will soon be admitting that we are endowed by "our Creator" with certain unalienable rights, and that our national motto is "In God We Trust", not "E. Pluribus Unum"?

I happened to be watching CSpan when that vote took place and the LA mayor had to keep asking form the ayes and nays since the nays were louder than the ayes, but the vote was pushed through anyway. Something Fox News left out.

They may be Communists, but it is rare that you see this level of bumbling and stumbling from them. This party is in seriously deep trouble.

It should be interesting to see how the mainstream media "spin" this. Thank you, Fox, for making this an issue which forced the dems to make the change.

Antonio Villaraigosa had to be told what to do by an assistant after the first or second voice vote did not produce the result they wanted. He must be regretting taking that assignment or maybe he will be made the DNC party chairman for the next election. Nothing like ruling without a democratic vote. LMAO ROFLMAO!!

“G-d” is an affectation of those who believe using “God” means God’s name is being used/spoken and that it should never be out of reverence.

Heh.
This is great.

First they piss off most of the country by disavowing God, then they piss off the remainder of the country by folding and "including" God.

Can dems be any dumber?

That voice-vote clearly failed three times, and was declared passed the third time - to boos in the audience.

Last I checked, God wasn't exactly at the whim of the DNC to jerk around as needed. Shows you what they think of Him, not to mention the biblical texts and our Constitution.
