The Democrat Convention was supposed to be the big kick off for Obama’s reelection. By any stretch of the imagination, even despite the cheerleading by the drive by media, this has been a disaster.
This convention may well mark the week that the Democrat Party ceased to be an American party.
Americans have always had certain basic beliefs we all shared. We were a free people. Our government was of the people, by the people and for the people. The government belongs to us and those who work for the government are public servants. The key word there being servant.
Americans have also had a public piety. We accept God. No, this is not necessarily the Evangelical God, but it is a Judeo Christian God. We publicly bow our heads. We begin our public meetings, including Congress with prayer. Some of the greatest words uttered by American leaders were prayers.
Americans were Evangelical, mainstream protestant, Catholic, Orthodox or Jewish, but we accepted the premise of God being a benevolent being who we appealed to in our time of need and offered our gratitude in times of prosperity.
The Democrats have taken God out of their platform.
Then they realized they made a mistake.
So they did what Democrats do. They quickly flip flopped. But when they put God back into their platform, the far left that controls the Democrat Party went nuts. They booed.
Can you imagine? The Democrats booed God.
The drive by media is going into emergency overtime trying spin, explain or simply hide this.
It is on the Internet. Everyone knows about it.
What does it say about those activists who control the Democrat Party?
They are no longer real Americans.
They no longer represent the values of real Americans. In this convention, the Democrats told Archbishop Timothy Dolan they were not interested in having him (though they later had to reverse themselves) but welcomed radical Islamists to hold an Islamic prayer meeting led by a radical who wants the “filthy” American Constitution overthrown and replaced with Sharia law.
They insulted millions of faithful Americans.
They no longer believe in freedom and liberty.
They believe in the collectivism of communism. They believe we the people are not a free people, with God-given inalienable rights. They believe belong to the government. They believe we are the serfs of this nation. They believe we the people are the chattels of the government.
The Democrat Party no longer believes in America.
They must be totally defeated and replaced with a Party that does.
What happened to the two hour Jumah, praying to the Moon God, Allah? Wasnt that supposed to be the grand opening of the DNC?
That is what I want to know.. Wanted to see what Chris Matthews had to say about it.
I wonder if he was experiencing tingles or tickles up and down his leg!!!
It was just a blood clot...
UPdate, according to the Washington Post, the Jumah went off without a hitch. Guess all those Democrat women should be wearing thier burkes now,
Betting the Muslim Brotherhood, who has thrown a lot of cash into the DNC are real happy with the insertion of God and the capitol of Israel being Jerusalem.
I believe it had a very low turno
They brought them in by the truck load just to fill the seats and promised them so much for the noise and clapping. there was a couch standing in the sidelines to tell them when to clap.
THIS IS TRUE AND SAD AT THE SAME TIME, because there were people watching on TV that will believe all this HIP.
But as Barack put it AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE STUPID and come NOVEMBER we will either prove him Right OR SHOW HIM HOW FAR OFF BASE HE IS WHEN IT COME TO KNOWING HOW SMART AMERICA REALLY IS WHEN THEY DON"T VOTE FOR HIM.
If your not a Judeo-Christian your not an American.
Point out where that is in the Constitution, please.
The Constitution does not say that at all. But I believe that you can't be a Christian and a democrat at the same time.
Ray, I agree that it will be extremely difficult, if not impossible, for any true follower of Jesus Christ, who has an orthodox theology and a well-formed conscience, to be a member of the Democratic Party. I do believe that a number of sincere, but ill-informed, followers of Jesus Christ and even more people who believe in Jesus (in the sense of mentally acknowledging his existence, Lordship, and Deity) can be deluded into belonging to the Democratic Party. In fact, I know more than a few such deluded souls. But a person who is sincerely seeking to know Jesus Christ intimately as Savior, Lord, and God will not remain deluded for long, especially not after the recent debacles over God and Israel at the DNC.
I disagree completely with John Tucker though. Being a Judeo-Christian is not a requirement for American citizenship.
Since our country was founded by those of the Judeo-Christian faiths, the Constitution does not need to say it.
The last sentence of the Declaration of Independence says it all:
"And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes
and our sacred Honor.
If you do not believe they were referring to the Judeo-Christian God, then you do not know early American history.
