Savage: Dems rejection of God 'the turning point'

Savage: Dems rejection of God 'the turning point' Radio host tells of his own divine encounter that illuminates moment

[Editor's note: Listen to the opening segment of today's "Savage Nation" at the end of this story]

The Democratic Party’s symbolic dismissal of God with the removal and forced return of His name to its platform by party officials amid boos from delegates could be the turning point in the 2012 presidential campaign said talk radio-host Michael Savage.

“This is a big moment,” Savage told his listeners after describing a remarkable divine encounter he experienced last night that has underscored for him the gravity of the moment.

“America is disgusted with this party of atheists and America haters,” he said.

At the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte today, the Associated Press noted Democratic officials were embarrassed by the reaction to the party’s removal from its platform yesterday of God’s name and of a declaration that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital.

When officials tried to reinsert the language today through amendments, Chairman Antonio Villaraigosa, the mayor of Los Angeles, had to call for a voice vote three times because the outcome was unclear. The motion required an affirmation of two-thirds to pass, but it sounded like the yeas and nays were equal. When he ruled that the amendments had been approved by acclamation, he was met with a chorus of boos from delegates.

The scene at the DNC today was a sharp contrast to Savage’s experience last night at a Jewish wedding held at a cold, foggy and windy Presidio on San Francisco Bay.

The site of the wedding was next to the graves of thousands of war dead.

Savage said that as he stood behind the area where the ceremony took place, he noticed a small, bronze plaque ..

Perhaps the most repeated message in scripture is what happens to a people when they turn away from God - it isn’t pretty. The Dems essentially gave God the finger. There is a hard rain gonna fall.

It isn’t just away from God it’s also toward communism. Savage is so on point here. Imagine the intolerance and how lost and rude are the people who thought nothing of BOOING the mention of God on national tv.

Out here in the real world the leftists are the loudest most intolerant voices, in power they will do heinous things, and they have.

That was just more icing on the cake. For the last four years, we have been watching them set themselves up for the inevitable:

Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.

The Democrat rejection of God is illustrative of the fundamental difference between Republicans and Democrats. Without a belief in God, there are no God-given rights of man. Without God-given rights, all rights emanate from the state, the State is supreme.

If the State is supreme, the “We the People” wording of the constitution is meaningless as is the checks and balance system that is written into the constitution.

I believe this is the reasoning that John Roberts used when he declared Obamacare to be constitutional. I believe it is also the reasoning behind the court throwing out most of the AZ immigration law (some of that ruling was reversed on appeal) as well as the court ruling against voter ID in Texas.

No one should be surprised at this turn of events. Socialists always go after religion. So far, this is very mild but if they gain confidence in their positions of power they will turn on the religious just as happened in the Paris Reign of Terror, the Bolshevik revolution in Russia, the Spanish civil war, Pol Pot’s slaughter - in fact, wherever marxists have come to power.

The Democrats are not only waging a war against the Catholic Church, they are waging a war against God in our lives. The Democrats are Statists, who believe that the Government is Supreme. That’s probably the reason that the media so often depicts Obama as some sort of deified being.

He is right. This is much bigger “out in flyover country” than the inside the beltway crowd thinks. I’ve already heard from socially conservative but democrat leaning union folks who are livid over it.

I’m not a huge Michael Savage fan, but he may be right that this is a turning point. Let’s hope the people wake up and see the Democratic Party for what it has become.

Exactly. Only one of two explanations for that. 1) Journ-o-lists are so aligned with the values of Democrats that they were incapable of noticing anything amiss, or; 2) Journ-o-lists were - again - providing political cover for their comrade in arms.

I was waiting for someone to say that, but I think that would have happened a long time ago for most of the Democrats, back when they approved Gay marriage. Sodom and Gommorah were being punished for their the lewd sexual practices.

Goebbels, Nazi Minister of Propaganda, noted:

“The Fuhrer is deeply religous, though completely anti-Christian. He views Christianity as a symptom of decay. Rightly so. It is a branch of the Jewish race... Both [Judaism and Christianity] have no point of contact to the animal element, and thus, in the end, they will be destroyed.”

“Adolf Hitler was politically astute enough to maintain some public distance between himself and the Neo-Pagan ideologues of the Nazi Party. But he was not far from them at heart. After his death documentation became available showing that Hitler had approved grandiose plans to wean the German churches away from Christianity and into the Neo-Pagan fold. To quote Shirer in The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich:”

http://constitutionalistnc.tripod.com/hitler-leftist/id2.html

“Though Hitler felt a particular urgency about dealing with the Jews and Communists, and the neutralizing of other political parties, he saw the Church as a pernicious opponent, a deeply-entrenched threat that must be immediately controlled and eventually uprooted in order to establish his Thousand-Year Reich.

To help eliminate Catholic influence, he turned to Alfred Rosenberg, arch-ideologue and convinced Nazi, who despised Christianity. In his book The Myth of the Twentieth Century, Rosenberg formulated a “scientific” theory of racism. For him, the supreme human value was that of race: individual races possessed their own collective soul, a mystical “power of the blood and soil.” Each race also possessed a religious impulse (in the case of the Aryan Germans, this was the pagan cult of Wotan, King of the Gods). Christianity, for Rosenberg, was the distorted product of Semitic tribes who had tricked the Aryans into jettisoning their pagan truth. The Catholic Church, the prime mover in this spiritual “swindle,” was singled out for sustained attack as the promoter of “prodigious, conscious and unconscious falsifications.”

All during the 1930s, Rosenberg poured scorn on the Church. The clergy, hierarchy and Vatican were vilified as poisoners of German blood, race-death merchants, race-swamp promoters, race contaminators, race-chaos merchants, obscurantists or “men of shadows,” sorcerers of Rome, and, referring to the Jewish roots of Christianity, as advocates of perverted “Orientalism.”

I disagree. It might well be a significant turning point.

I could see atheists becoming very frustrated at the way they were treated at the convention during this vote, especially since their “No” vote was clearly sufficient to defeat the motion. The question is how do they register that frustration? I suspect one avenue many will take will be to simply not vote for the party that did this to them. Since they’re unlikely to vote for the GOP, they’ll probably stay home on election day.

Similarly, a thinking Christian Democrat, of which there are many, has to wonder what he is doing allying with a party that attracts most of the atheist voters and a large proportion of the nonreligious vote as well. Ads targeted at that group, utilizing yesterday’s “No” vote, and asking why they support the party that attracts so many atheists could swing many Christian Democrats toward the GOP at best, or toward staying home at least. For some, it might be the final straw that drives them to the GOP, if they are already gunowners, hunters, and fiscally-conservative union members who’ve always habitually voted Democrat because of their union ties.

It’s the unscripted moments like this that often have the greatest impact, because they’re so revealing of what is being consciously concealed.

The religion of the left is the worship of the State.

Whitaker Chambers discussed this in his book, The Witness. He said that God is anathema to communists because people who obey a higher power than the State are impossible to enslave. The Communist Party forbade communists to attend church.

We are all Catholic now. Obama has revealed his true identity and declared war not just on the Catholic Church but on God. How can a country who declares war on God, long exist?

DNC like most USAians reject YHWH in their lives. Saying one believes and doing another, tells true. USA has become a storefront land: big facades in front of dark crumbling buildings. Writing a party _platform_ containing swaths of words without the slightest intent to act upon.

If there are _any_ DNCians who believe Jerusalem is the capital of Israel or YHWH’s own city, why would they associate w/ DNC?

The story related at the link by Dr. Savage of the wedding guests dancing in thanks to memory of the men who sacrificed their lives on D-Day so that they might live in freedom is incredibly powerful.

And in such contrast to the orgy of loathing and contempt that is the DNC.

Excellent comment and very thought-provoking. I pray the outcome of this vote is the significant turning point, which will fatally weaken the Democrats.

The DNC pushed out the true God and instead, they want to be god themselves. I know looking at their stage, it has a religious look but it is very fake and counterfeit.

I remember the Rush Limbaugh TV show in the early 1990’s where he as a TV playing a video tape of a fire and he connected how it is fake like democrats.

Last I checked, only 2% of christians share their faith.

Also, Christians are up to their ears in porn, divorce, and other filth.

Maybe the Democrats are haters of God, since we are lousy Christians?

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land

What makes you so sure those are Christians? "And in that day I shall say to them, I never knew ye." From the beginning one of Satan's favorite tactics has been to infiltrate the visible church and present a bad witness. Peter, Paul, John and Jude all warned us about this.
