Obama and the Democrats Turn Their Back to God

undefined

Democrats have removed God from the Democratic National Committee platform.

David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network noticed the omission and compared the language in the 2012 DNC platform to the language in the 2008 platform.

In 2008, the DNC platform read:

We need a government that stands up for the hopes, values, and interests of working people, and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their God-given potential.

In 2012, the words “God-given” were removed, and the paragraph has been restructured to read:

We gather to reclaim the basic bargain that built the largest middle class and the most prosperous nation on Earth – the simple principle that in America, hard work should pay off, responsibility should be rewarded, and each one of us should be able to go as far as our talent and drive take us.

In addition, there is no mention of “God” in the “Faith” section of the platform as well:

Faith has always been a central part of the American story, and it has been a driving force of progress and justice throughout our history. We know that our nation, our communities, and our lives are made vastly stronger and richer by faith and the countless acts of justice and mercy it inspires. Faith- based organizations will always be critical allies in meeting the challenges that face our nation and our world – from domestic and global poverty, to climate change and human trafficking. People of faith and religious organizations do amazing work in communities across this country and the world, and we believe in lifting up and valuing that good work, and finding ways to support it where possible. We believe in constitutionally sound, evidence-based partnerships with faith-based and other non-profit organizations to serve those in need and advance our shared interests. There is no conflict between supporting faith-based institutions and respecting our Constitution, and a full commitment to both principles is essential for the continued flourishing of both faith and country.

A search for the word “God” in the platform, which also supports gay marriage and late-term abortions, results in no matches.
With the Democrats, two Messiahs in the same party is one too many.

UPDATE I:

“Dick” Durbin  gets testy about God’s omission from Democratic Platform with Bret Baier:

UPDATE II:

Fearing an electoral backlash, the Democrat Party leadership moved on the floor of the convention hours ago to put God (and Jerusalem) back into their platform.  But the DNC delegates DID NOT support God and Jerusalem being reinstated. The approval of platform change requires two-thirds of the delegates to affirm. Watch and listen to what happened with this video:

  1. At least the Demonrats finally are dropping all pretenses that they believe in God. No doubt the 2016 DNC platform will include the word “Allah”.

  4. It’s so perfect…I just read that the reason given for moving Obama’s big speech from a venue that holds 74K to another holding merely 20K is a fear OF A LIGHTENING STRIKE! This the day after excising G-d from the party platform…..although only a 40% chance of rain is predicted.

    • I was warning my friends about this in 2008, even had a huge falling out with a formerly close friend from Harvard. They refused to believe this president would go the way he has. And it’s no consolation to be able to say I was right.

  8. Just saw this on Brietbart, the dems are ‘forcing’ God and Israel back into the platform, and are having to cheat to do it.

  12. Just posted this on a Jewish website forum debating this DNC reversal: “The DNC had also removed all references to God from this platform and have now replaced said references due to protest and pressure. I always believed that Jews were not stupid but if you cannot see that this self-proclaimed Muslim is more connected to The Muslim Brotherhood than to Israel, I have more than one bridge to sell you. Romney GENUINELY supports Israel – believe it!”.

  13. These fools think the world revolves around them. I’m thinking we should all pray for the Lord give them a sign to let them know exactly WHO is in charge, and it’s NOT Barack Obama.

  14. Who is the world is in charge of this Convention.
    I see “party leaders” mentioned above, but no evidence of any real “leadership” going on. The blind leading the blind is the closest description of what is happening at this murderous gathering. The only real issue at present is why wait any longer to oust the current administration, because their agenda is murder and what is going on right now is just the tip of the iceberg.
    Thermonuclear war would get rid of any and all of the evidence against Barack Obama, amongst other things.
    Other things being all of us and the end of civilization.
    Even if Sino Russian relations are not as cordial now as before, these two nations are staunch defenders of national sovreignty and they are not going along with the NATO US push to dislodge Assad in Syria. General Dempsey is letting it be known that he is not in favor of another Libya style revolution in Syria or an attack on Iran. Funny how his plane was attacked in Afganistan.
    Someone somewhere is rooting for the US to provoke a thermonuclear confrontation with ? who? not too hard to imagine who. We need to put this on the top of the issue’s list, God and Jerusalem are obviously a bone of contention with some people at the convention but surely they could come to an agreement that thermonuclear war is taboo? Party affiliation and ideology aside, surely everyone in the world should be able to agree that thermonuclear war is off limits. Now is the time to put an end to war mongering and set the course in a new direction not based on colonialism.

  16. “By their fruits ye shall know them.” This is the nutshell as to what is going on: There are people who believe that all goodness has to be wiped out in order for us all to start over again. At least, that’s the idea—which is all B.S., of course, because there are people who just want to get to the top. It’s called nihilism. We are living in the Age of Nihilism. Prepare Yourselves: Evil is about to have its hour.
    God Almighty is still in charge. He is allowing this, in part because we have free will, in part because it is His Judgment.
    I saw a poster or placard in the crowd at Charlotte this morning. It read, “God is my enemy.” That sums it up, and the original sentiment came from Vladimir Lenin, who, in a unique moment of candor, said the following:
    “We hate God because He does not exist. And if He did exist, we would hate Him all the more, because God is not a communist.”
    Examine the moral schizophrenia in that statement, and you will discover the Dialectic it operates under. There’s the problem of evil right there.
