No Apologizing

"But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect." 1 Peter 3:15

God is no longer an influence on the Democrat Party


What an interesting 48 hours from the Democrat Convention.  First we have the platform being approved with/without the following items:

-          God being completely removed from their platform

-          Jerusalem not recognized as the capital of Israel.

-          Total support of Gay Marriage

-          Total support of Abortion

Then comes the incredible events of yesterday.    Words can’t even describe this.  Just watch by clicking here.

You have probably one of the most revealing and awkward moments in recent political history.  A party denying God, and then…after push back from the people…leadership attempts to put Him back in, but the delegates apparently thought differently than the leaders.  Politico reports that President Obama knew that God and Jerusalem had been removed from the platform and did nothing until republicans started to question why speakers were mentioning God…something the party did not recognize, and the heat they received for turning their back on Israel.  Thus the vote on Wednesday.

The voting results now appears to be predetermined based on this photo:

 

It would appear that the outcome was…pre-ordained

 

This would explain the chairman’s reaction when the “No’s” were as numerous as the “Yay’s”.  Needless to say this whole thing is a mess.

So what of all of this?  I would argue the following.  The original platform that was adopted that removed God and officially did not recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital is the true heart of the Democrat Party.  Not only does the first vote demonstrate that, but also the fact that they were willing to have a second vote due only to political pressure.  This should not be a surprise to anyone that God has been removed.  The removal presents a more consistent view from the Democratic Party which maintains that God must be removed from politics at all costs.  Additionally, the platform supports two very big issues that the Bible does not, in any way condone (gay marriage and abortion).

Regardless of what the platform says (or doesn’t say) this is what the Democrat Party has become.  As Christian’s we must weigh this heavily as we begin to vote.  Sides have been chosen and we now have a party in America which officially does not recognize God, but rather a generic faith in anything.  In 48 hours this election has had yet another layer added to it…the election of the party which recognizes God, and the party that does not.

    How day they not recognize the Lord God Rama. How inconsiderate of them, a major party in a secular country with a separation of church and state, not declare their love for my Hindu deity. How dare they!

      I’m not upset about this at all. I was simply commenting that it had taken place. They are officially recognizing who they are. But…why the rush for the party to put God back into their platform? That is what I am most curious about.

        Because politicians (all of them) are stupid and will try and pander to everyone to get the most votes they possibly can.

        I agree. Neither Party can have it both ways. the Democrats cannot condemn the use of God in a Governmental forum and then bless everyone in the crowd while running for office. This at the very least demonstrated that for the people to see.

    More proof of doing whatever it takes for more votes and going for the least common denominator.
