Democrats Drop ‘God’ From Party Platform


obama-democrat-national-conventionBy David Brody

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.”

The Brody File has calls into DNC to explain why God’s name has been dropped from the platform. Some critics will suggest that when you have planks in your platform that support abortion rights and gay marriage then it’s no wonder that God’s name would be dropped as well.

There is one section on “faith” and here is what it says:

“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.”

  1. And for the first time they also dropped the official statement recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. But “he’s got Israel’s back.” And there’s a bridge I can sell you if you’re interested.

  2. Now at least we know that when Obama said that “you did not build that” he was talking to G-D as well.Heaven help us.This does not bode well for the future of America in general and Tolerance for Believing Jews in particular.

  3. The values which the democratic party espouses

    are extemely demoralizing.

    Yet unfortunately many or most of our

    brothers and sisters in some way and in some

    fashion continue to support it as if it has

    its status as in its pastime.
