Democrat Party Drops God from Political Platform

The Democrat Party took yet another bold step in the secular direction by dropping the word “God” from its party platform. A party that sometimes seems to give lip service to religion is apparently reconciling the contradictions in its message by cutting out references to God.
CBN’s David Brody pointed out the passage where the word God was removed. The difference between the 2008 platform and today’s:
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.”
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.”
Ironically, while scanning the Democrat Party’s website earlier this week, I was quite surprised to see the reference to God that Brody notes. But if one goes to the platform on the party’s website now, the word God has been removed.
It isn’t too much of a surprise from a party that exalts the state that its leadership would eventually see God as an unwanted competitor for the worship of the people. And for ends-justify-the-means radical Alinskyites, God’s reproofs are too much of a burden for the conscience.
Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history… the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.”
Alinsky’s dedication is in some ways an allegorical note and likely an allusion to Milton’s Paradise Lost. Nonetheless, the Democrats’ abandonment of God and its replacement by the vacuous “faith,” as well as the nebulous exhortation for ‘tolerance,’ signals strongly that today’s Democrat Party is intentionally trying to move away from Christianity, which is an anchor on its radical transformative agenda.
We will likely see a hasty mention of God by the Democrat Party in the near future, but the fact that the Democrats originally forgot to mention God in the party platform, in the midst of its unbridled celebration of big government, is a point of record.
