Unreal… Democrats Banish “God” From Party Platform

Democrats banish God from platform.

Unreal… Don’t look now but Democrats just dropped God from their party platform.
CBN reported:

Guess what? God’s name has been removed from the Democratic National Committee platform.

This is the paragraph that was in the 2008 platform:

“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.”

Now the words “God-given” have been removed. The paragraph has been restructured to say this:

“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.”

    A COVENANT FOR A NEW AMERICA

    [“At a press conference on December 1… the possible Presidential contender said, ‘…the network that Saddleback has helped to create has as much reach as any institutional force in our culture and has probably a wider reach around the world than just about anything that’s going on right now…. I hope one of the things that comes out of this conference that Pastor Rick has emphasized again and again, is no single branch of our society is going do this alone. If government thinks they can do it by themselves they’re wrong. Churches have to recognize that they’ve got to be partners with the government. Business has an enormous role….]

    There’s more change to this than the deletion of the reference to God.

    “…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.”

    Who pays? Who rewards? Who ensures the result? This is substantively different from “gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of…”

    The older platform was about self-determination. The new one is about entitlement.

    UNREAL? Why do you call this unreal?

    The Democrats have inverted utterly the Founders’ entire thesis which is, God first; G_d created man (endowing him/her with inalienable right) and for that reason man ought rightly to worship G_d; government is instituted to protect the G_d-given rights.

    In the Democrat scheme, which faithfully follows the scheme of ever collectivist ever to have lived and ruled, the State is first and foremost; man is to serve the State and only the State; there is NO G_d other than the State.

    Proposed UN Environmental Constitution For The World Would
    Establish An Incredibly Repressive System Of Global Governance

    [Most people have no idea that the United Nations has been drafting an environmental constitution for the world that is intended to supersede all existing national laws. This document has a working title of “Draft International Covenant on Environment and Development” and you can read the entire thing right here. Work on this proposed world environmental constitution has been going on since 1995, and the fourth edition was issued to UN member states on September 22nd, 2010. This document is intended to become a permanent binding treaty and it would establish an incredibly repressive system of global governance. This “covenant”, as it is being called, claims authority over the entire global environment and everything that affects it. Considering the fact that everything that we do affects the environment in some way, that would mean that this document would become the highest form of law for all human activity. This proposed UN environmental constitution for the world is incredibly detailed. The U.S. Constitution only has 7 articles, but the UN document has 79 articles. If the U.S. eventually ratifies this treaty, any national, state or local laws that conflict with this covenant will be null and void. This is potentially one of the greatest threats to our national sovereignty that we have ever seen and we need to warn the American people about it.

    Essentially what this proposed environmental covenant does is it takes
    the sustainable development principles underlying Agenda 21 and turns
    them into global constitutional law.

    Secrets of Communism (IslaMarxism (#90) by any other name)

    Death by Government (Communism by any other name)

    [But communists could not be wrong. After all, their knowledge was scientific, based on historical materialism, an understanding of the dialectical process in nature and human society, and a materialist (and thus realistic) view of nature. Marx has shown empirically where society has been and why, and he and his interpreters proved that it was destined for a communist end. No one could prevent this, but only stand in the way and delay it at the cost of more human misery. Those who disagreed with this world view and even with some of the proper interpretations of Marx and Lenin were, without a scintilla of doubt, wrong. After all, did not Marx or Lenin or Stalin or Mao say that. . . . In other words, communism was like a fanatical religion. It had its revealed text and chief interpreters. It had its priests and their ritualistic prose with all the answers. It had a heaven, and the proper behavior to reach it. It had its appeal to faith. And it had its crusade against nonbelievers.

    What made this secular religion so utterly lethal was its seizure of all the state’s instrument of force and coercion and their immediate use to destroy or control all independent sources of power, such as the church, the professions, private businesses, schools, and, of course, the family.]

    what? commented:

    Even an atheist, however, can recognize the utility of positing a God. Men owe moral duties to God that are both above and distinct from the duties they owe the government, which is an agreement among men.

    The existence of God separates the concepts of “moral authority or conscience” from “government”: those are two concepts that should never be confused. Investing a government with moral authority leads to kings, with their erratic judgment in small societies, and fascism, complete with the slaughter of the innocents, in larger ones.

  • This is what we expect from a bunch socialists, who believe your rights come from big government not by God.

  • EffingReally?

    Here we go again with the nonsense that America was founded as a Christian nation..

    Go read the Treaty of Tripoli Drafted and signed by the founding fathers.. They state plainly that America was not founded as a Christian nation..

    I’m not an atheist by any means.. But weaving God and government together is alot of what drove people to the new world in the first place.. People wanted government free of the church and the freedom to worship as they pleased..

  • EffingReally?, Not trying to get into a debate with you, but did you know that in 1892, the Supreme Court declared America a Christian nation? Review the evidence which led to the Court’s noteworthy conclusion.

    Also, did you know that the three branches of the government are based on a Bible verse?

    Isaiah 33:22
    For the LORD is our judge (Judicial Branch), the LORD is our lawgiver (Legislative Branch), the LORD is our king (Administrative Branch); it is he who will save us. The founders wanted no king (except Jesus when He returns), but they needed an administrator, so they defined that government position as President.

    I think you’re reaching with your three branches of government statement.. That’s some speculation in my mind..

    And activist judges will always be a problem.. We complain about them today.. So we had a group of them back then.. Just the other extreme..

    People cite America’s national motto as In God we Trust.. God didn’t make his way into our pledge of allegiance or national motto until the 50’s.. The founding fathers had some sense.. They’d roll over in their graves to see themselves misquoted and their intentions misrepresented by people who don’t bother to study their words..

    My Questions would be:
    1- how does allowing women to choose abortion in any way impact your freedoms? Are you losing any rights by women being allowed to choose an abortion?
    2- by allowing gays to Marry, does it make you any less married to your spouse? Are you losing any freedoms or rights?

    I have strong feelings about these issues myself. But i tend to work with the train of thought that allowing others these rights doesn’t impact my freedoms.. I don’t want a gay marriage, I won’t go get one.. Doesn’t mean others shouldn’t be able to if they choose.. I don’t want an abortion.. I won’t get one.. Doesn’t mean others shouldn’t be able to go get one if thats what they want to do..

    I tend to vote for candidates that run on a platform of policy rather than a moral code.. I dont want anyone’s religion telling me what rights I should and shouldn’t have..

    At the end of the day, our imperialistic foreign policy and oversized military industrial complex are bigger issues to me than hours of debating scripture and law..

    “Experts were surprised”

    Heh………….

  • Here is a very good explanation of The Treaty of Tripoli from David Barton of Wall Builders.

    Article XI simply distinguished America from those historical strains of European Christianity which held an inherent hatred of Muslims; it simply assured the Muslims that the United States was not a Christian nation like those of previous centuries (with whose practices the Muslims were very familiar) and thus would not undertake a religious holy war against them.

    This interpretation is, in fact, supported by the attitude prevalent among numerous American leaders. The Christianity practiced in America was described by John Jay as “wise and virtuous,” by John Quincy Adams as “civilized,” and by John Adams as “rational.” A clear distinction was drawn between American Christianity and that of Europe in earlier centuries. As Noah Webster explained:

    The ecclesiastical establishments of Europe which serve to support tyrannical governments are not the Christian religion but abuses and corruptions of it.

    Daniel Webster similarly explained that American Christianity was:

    Christianity to which the sword and the fagot [burning stake or hot branding iron] are unknown – general tolerant Christianity is the law of the land!

    There is an alleged quote from George Washington that goes as follows:

    “The government of the United States is in no sense founded on the Christian religion. GEORGE WASHINGTON”

    Those who attribute the Treaty of Tripoli quote to George Washington make two mistakes. The first is that no statement in it can be attributed to Washington (the treaty did not arrive in America until months after he left office); Washington never saw the treaty; it was not his work; no statement in it can be ascribed to him. The second mistake is to divorce a single clause of the treaty from the remainder which provides its context. It would also be absurd to suggest that President Adams (under whom the treaty was ratified in 1797) would have endorsed or assented to any provision which repudiated Christianity. In fact, while discussing the Barbary conflict with Jefferson, Adams declared:

    The policy of Christendom has made cowards of all their sailors before the standard of Mahomet. It would be heroical and glorious in us to restore courage to ours.

    Furthermore, it was Adams who declared:

    The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were. . . . the general principles of Christianity. . . . I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God; and that those principles of liberty are as unalterable as human nature.

    Adams’ own words confirm that he rejected any notion that America was less than a Christian nation.

  • EffingReally?, your points are well taken and have been debated for a long time and will continue to be debated. The question is not “whether” moral values will influence legislation but “Whose” moral values will influence legislation. A vacuum cannot exist, so if the current moral values are tossed out, some other set will fill the vacuum. It becomes a very slippery slope, so a society has to decide what limits it puts on acceptable behavior as long as it doesn’t violate those inalienable rights guaranteed by the laws of nature and the Constitution.

    Why stop at two men or two women marrying? How about three men and a goat? Some limits have existed virtually since civilization began, and they had a purpose that benefited society. Marriage of a man and a woman produced children which propagated the society. Same-sex marriage does not.

    The same goes for the other issues you listed. Debate will continue, the standard will continue to lower, and eventually society will revert to the barbaric tribalism that existed in prehistoric times or at least during the decline and destruction of the Greek and Roman empires. It is just the cycle that society follows. Sad, isn’t it?

    I agree with you that we have bigger fish to fry, so we all need to put our efforts into booting Obama and all his ilk and trying to get the country moving away from the abyss.

  • EffingReally?

    I’d challenge your statement about Adams.. He made numerous comments about the church and Calvinistic religions and their dangers..

    Jefferson also said something along the lines of its impossible to have rights when religion and government are intertwined..

    The founding fathers are on record over and over again discussing the dangers of religious morals in the process of government.. I’d still like someone to address my earlier questions..

  • #44 bg, God speaks to all of us, but most of us don’t listen. We have experienced two miraculous healings as a result of prayer and listening to God…so did the doctors whose hands and minds He guided. The first was in 1996, and it was so remarkable that the local newspaper sent a reporter and photographer to interview us. I have a copy of the article posted on my domain. To this day, there is no medical explanation for how terminal cancer transformed into survivable cancer during surgery.

    The second was two months ago, when surgery was again initiated due to the promptings of God and the cancer was not discovered until after the surgery had removed all the suspicious tissue. Had the surgery been delayed another week, the cancer would have started spreading. God DOES speak. We just need to listen and heed what He says.

    “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.
    That they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights,
    that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

    Declaration of Independence 1776

    “God who gave us life and liberty. And can the liberties of a nation
    be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a
    conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are a gift
    of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed,
    I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His
    justice cannot sleep forever.”

    Thomas Jefferson 1781

    “Our laws and our institutions must necessarily be based upon the
    teachings of the Redeemer of Mankind. It is impossible that it should
    be otherwise; and in this sense and to this extent, our civilization and
    our institutions are emphatically Christian.”

    EffingReality —
    You are free to have a committed relationship with the person of your choosing (or appropriate age), to share resources & burdens, etc.

    But there is no constitutional right, or natural right, to have your relationship legally recognized by the government (or society) as “marriage” — an institution that would never have come into existence simply for the purpose of recognizing the commitment of two adults to each other. It came into existence to perpetuate society and protect the vulnerable.

    Children deserve a mother and a father.

    There is no natural right for you to get partner benefits from your employer at the expense of single employees.

  • EffingReally?, Visit Wallbuilders. Every one of your concerns about the founders and religion are addressed and explained there. David Barton is probably the premier expert on the founders and the history of this nation and its Godly heritage and founding.

    Your Questions would be:
    1- how does allowing women to choose abortion in any way impact your freedoms? Are you losing any rights by women being allowed to choose an abortion?

    How does allowing women to choose to kill 3-year-olds in any way impact my freedoms? How about 18-year-olds? The age doesn’t matter, it’s the act that has an effect on society. Taking a life should only be allowed after “due process of law” as the Constitution provides.

    2- by allowing gays to Marry, does it make you any less married to your spouse? Are you losing any freedoms or rights?

    Same-sex “marriage” simply acknowledges and accepts deviant behavior just as sex with minors and incest and sex with animals does, and it provides no value to society, so society has the right to set standards for behavior. Two people of the same sex or a hundred people of the same sex can live together, they just cannot define their relationship as a marriage. States can pass legislation to provide the same benefits to same-sex couples as to opposite-sex couples, but the definition of marriage does not change. The behavior of militant homosexuals in public has become a serious detriment to the environment in which families try to raise their children. That affects everyone.

    I love cafeteria Christians and cafeteria patriots..

    How quickly we throw out the scriptures that are convenient to us.. But refuse the existence of the ones that we don’t like..

    For example– we rail against social programs and Obamacare..( I have my own issues with it) but we forget that Christ commanded us to care for the sick and the poor.. He didn’t add a clause that said unless they’re black or you feel that they’re too lazy to work.. He said care for the poor and the sick..

    Christ never said one word about abortion or gays.. He commanded us to love our neighbors.. He didn’t add a clause that says unless they’re gay or living in sin..

    And yes– this same thing applies to the founding fathers.. We can’t just take the quotes we like and run with them.. And ignore the rest.. They have to be viewed and used as a whole.

    And while I’m on a tangent: I personally believe that the founding fathers would have allowed the practice of Islam in early America.. Freedom of religion is just that.. It’s not freedom of Christianity.. We have got to stop categorizing all Muslims as terrorists.. I lived in Dearborn Michigan for awhile.. My neighbors were all Muslim and some of the nicest people I know.. You can’t categorize the whole religion based on the fundamentalists within it.. How would you like to be categorized as violent because the fundamentalist Christians that blew up abortion clinics (yes that’s terrorism) or bombed buildings..

    So yes.. Our pledge of allegiance says one nation under God.. It doesn’t say one nation under the Christian God.. Not knocking anyone’s religion or beliefs.. Just challenging you to live up to the standard you hold others to..

    Why just the other night this was heard from outside the oval office windows. (picked up from background noise on Obamas taping machine perhaps?)

    “Hear me O’ bama!
    Since thou have gained thou lofty throne thy wife has become a jaw-jacking popinjay, speaking before spoken too, spewing female opinions, gallivanting all over the world without you, and other snide remarks spoken since that could have direct, evil bearing on thy present and to thy future detriment.
    Allah suggests you help her mend her evil ways with a “little touch-up” therapy.”

    How about it Barack?

    “It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge to Providence of Almighty
    God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and to humbly
    implore His protection and favor.”

    George Washington October 3, 1789 Proclaiming
    a National Day of Prayer and Thanksgiving ~

    “This is all the inheritance I give to my dear family. The religion
    of Christ will give them one which will make them rich indeed.”

    Patrick Henry Last will and testament, November 20, 1798

    “If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will go
    on prospering and to prosper; but if we and our posterity neglect its
    instructions and authority, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe
    may overwhelm us and bury all our glory in profound obscurity.”

    Daniel Webster 1821

    “It is fit and becoming in all people, at all times, to acknowledge and
    revere the Supreme Government of God; to bow in humble submission to
    His chastisement; to confess and deplore their sins and transgressions in
    the full conviction that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
    and to pray, with all fervency and contrition, for the pardon of their past
    offenses, and for a blessing upon their present and prospective action.”

    BEWARE. .BEWARE

    When OBAMA says that he won’t raise taxes on those making less than $250K/yr – – HE LIES. . .

    While true they will not tax in the traditional sense of the work (ie Income tax), via Quantitative Easing (printing funny money) he has added the inflation tax (gas from $1.85 to $3.85), Food price inflation, health insurance premiums increasing. . .

    This is so cynical and insidious. .

    Bg: you wanna throw out pick as choose quotes.. Voila

    Every man, conducting himself as a good citizen, and being accountable to God alone for his religious opinions, ought to be protected in worshipping the Deity according to the dictates of his own conscience.
    — George Washington, letter to the United Baptist Chamber of Virginia, May 1789, in Anson Phelps Stokes, Church and State in the United States, Vol 1. p. 495, quoted from Albert J Menendez and Edd Doerr, The Great Quotations on Religious Freedom

    I am persuaded, you will permit me to observe that the path of true piety is so plain as to require but little political direction. To this consideration we ought to ascribe the absence of any regulation, respecting religion, from the Magna-Charta of our country.
    — George Washington, responding to a group of clergymen who complained that the Constitution lacked mention of Jesus Christ, in 1789, Papers, Presidential Series, 4:274, the “Magna-Charta” here refers to the proposed United States constitution..

    There ya go.. Picking and choosing and copy pasting quotes can go on all day..

    There’s multiple quotes made by all the founding fathers to support both sides of the argument..

    As a side note: Lincoln wasn’t a founding father.. But eh.. I get your point

  • EffingReally?

    And as for women and girls forced to live under sharia law–

    I think sharia law is deplorable.. I also think that fundamental Christianity is deplorable.. What’s the difference? If that’s how they choose to worship and what their religion requires.. Why shouldn’t they have a right to it? Because you don’t like it?

    I take issue with the whole wives be submissive to your husband, don’t speak, etc.. Christianity is full of misogyny and degradation to women.. Yet many embrace it.. They have a right to their beliefs as well..

    Very Alinsky of you dear. Maybe you could tell me which rule that last one was.

  • EffingReally?, so much confusion and frustration needs to be resolved. I gave you a source to answer all your questions about the founders and their beliefs and the actual history of the founding and progression of this nation, but you ignored it and kept on the same tact. Fine, but don’t be upset if those of us who have studied it for more than 50 years and lived it for even longer grow tired of trying to guide you to answers. If you don’t dig them out yourself, you aren’t going to accept them from faceless posters on a blog.

    Fundamentalist Muslims must strictly adhere to all tenets of their religion. I leave it to you to decide what that is.

    Fundamentalist Christians must strictly adhere to all tenets of their religion. That does not include Jewish traditions that were intended only for Jews. Christians are “Gentiles”, and we are under the New Covenant that Christ made with His own blood. Fools who blow up abortion clinics are not adhering to any form of Christianity, let alone Fundamentalist Christianity.

    Jesus did have much to say about abortion and homosexuals and the poor. He discipled 12 men and explained much to them, and they in turn wrote His words down and also told them, as was the custom in those times. Read Romans, read the entire New Testament, read the Old Testament, search for various words or themes (I like Biblegateway.com).

    Don’t forget that God of the Bible is ONE God in THREE Persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit….that has always baffled people, but WE are also three “persons” created in the image of God:

    1. Body
    2. Mind (with a will and emotions)
    3. Spirit

    Opaobie– I just scrolled back up and saw your response.. I must’ve missed it 🙁

    I’d still say.. That those are personal faith based beliefs.. I have my own.. But I try not to vote my religious beliefs.. I try to vote based in facts and policy regarding the future.

    I was a history major in college.. Focused on US history.. I’ve studied.. While I saw the answer.. I simply don’t agree.. You defended it with religious doctrine.. But didn’t tell me what rights or freedoms people lose by allowing those two things to exist.. I’m asking you to separate your mind for a moment from religious doctrine and truly tell me what freedoms you personally lose.. Not how it conflicts with your religious philosophy ..

    And Bg– all im doing is debating.. I back my view point up with facts and my discussions with my reasoning..

    Politically, I’m more of a centrist.. Ive voted for the left and the right.. I fact check things i read and hear, I get my news from multiple sources.. And I look at data..

    You’d call me Un-American for it probably.. But I feel like as a citizen who votes.. It’s my duty to not just take party progagada at face value..

  • EffingReally?, you do realize that at that time, the words “Deity”, “Providence”, “God”, etc. ONLY referred to the God of the Bible, right? Religion was even interchanged with “Denomination” in common parlance. Not everyone was religious, not everyone believed in God, but EVERYONE knew that those terms referred to the God of the Bible. Everything else was paganism, including the other major religions of the world.

    The founders feared organized religious groups would try to do what had been done in England and Europe, where the state took over the job of the church and established a “State” church, so they made it ILLEGAL in the Constitution. As Jefferson said about “the wall of separation between church and state” to the Danbury Baptists in his famous letter, which is never published in its entirety, “…a wall of separation exists between the church and the state, not to keep the church out of the state but to keep the state out of the church”…

  • #81 EffingReally?, how can I separate my actions from my core beliefs? We all act based on our core beliefs. Anti-social behavior of ANY kind is destructive to the society. I don’t accept allowing anti-social activists to destroy society, so I oppose their efforts to impose THEIR values on society and on ME and my family and friends. It’s that simple.

    By the way, some of your sources are not original and contain errors. Go to Wallbuilders and check on those errors. Revised history has been taught in school for more than a century…sadly. Are you aware that the “Jamestown Colony” site that tourists are taken to is NOT the actual site? The original was “too religious” and the PC crowd got it “recreated” a few miles from the original site. There is a small sign that points to the original site if you want to see the actual site. Christian Heritage Tours still goes to the REAL site…just fyi.

    The baby loses all its rights in an abortion.

    I lose my right to practice my faith in my church in a certain way when the government takes the definition of marriage from my religion and gives it to everyone who does not conform to my religion. It is especially removing my rights if the government FORCES my religious institiution to abandon my religious doctrine and practice THEIR belief through a law/laws.
