The Most Important Event at Either Convention

Pages: 1 2

The answer is simple: America’s left wants a godless society here in the United States, just as Europe’s left has created such a society there — and the Democratic Party is run by the left. To anyone who watched or just heard the “vote” among the ones on the floor of the convention, it was clear as day that at least half of the Democratic delegates wanted the words “God-given” and the reference to Jerusalem as Israel’s capital to stay out of the party platform.

Democrats and liberals respond that the charge that the left aims to establish a godless America is a calumny because millions of Democrats believe in God. Indeed, the delegate who introduced the resolution, former Ohio governor Ted Strickland, introduced himself as an ordained minister of the United Methodist church.

But this response is a non-sequitur. The fact that tens of millions of Democrats and liberals (though relatively few leftists) believe in God is unrelated to the fact — I repeat, fact - that the left wants a godless society.

Why, then, do many God-fearing Americans support a party and movement dedicated to removing God from as much of American life as possible? Because they are naive about the left.

The removal of the reference to Jerusalem as Israel’s capital was equally revealing and significant. The left thinks that Israel is just as responsible as — and often more responsible than — the Palestinians and other Arabs and Muslims are for the Middle East conflict, and the United States must therefore be scrupulously neutral between Israel and its enemies as if there is a moral symmetry between them.

And finally, the convention vote itself was revealing. The blatant lie — enacted in front of a national audience no less — that two thirds of the delegates voted “aye” for the resolution was a classic example of how the left behaves when in power.

In his address to the Democratic convention, former President Bill Clinton noted that even a broken clock is right twice a day.

What is true for a broken clock, however, is not true for a broken moral compass.

    Good one Dennis. I have never voted Democrat in my life. But I no longer hold the adolescent belief, that if there were no more religion, there would be no more war. I also think if we were all socialists, or all capitalists, there would still be war. But there would be a lot less war if we were all capitalists. It is impossible to ever achieve enough agreement to end all war. This display by the Dumbocrats was the most embarrassing ever. Oh, and I would not say, if there were no more religion, there at least would be LESS war. Or people would have fewer psychological problems. No. Sorry.

    The Left want a godless state, with one exception for Allah.

    Because they are heavily in the social gospel, Jim Wallis mentions how left the bible can be on economics and I agree. Its not a conservative view on things always like many conservative Christians believe. On the other hand, St Paul writings counter the sayings of Jesus that can be use to argue for the far left. Irivng Kristol a Jew stated that the Old Testament is more conservative than the New Testament and its true that Evangelicals who are more conservative also tend to read the old testament.

      Well, it's true that Jim Wallis relies heavily on a social gospel, but it's far removed from the historic Gospel of Jesus and Saint Paul. Also, there is always some attempt by religious liberals to show that Saint Paul differed than Jesus on several issues (mainly, socio-economic matters). But a fair reading of the alleged texts usually reveal a misunderstanding of the different historical contexts; specifically, a change in the redemptive-historical setting of both Jesus' and Paul's words. These are matters, in most cases, that would have been resolved by simply adhering to the historical-grammatical method of interpretation of the Bible (i.e., paying close attention to the historical context, grammar, audience, etc.). But, of course, religious liberals have not been known to be great biblical exegetes – mostly, because far too many of them do not see the Bible as historically accurate. Moreover, their preconceptions over the nature of God and His message to mankind often compels them to discredit or re-interpret the rather 'hard' sayings found in its pages.

      Try Thessalonians Ch.5 h/t bible gateway KJV

      5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

      6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.

      7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.

      8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

      9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

      10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.

      11 Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.

      12 And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you;

      13 And to esteem them very highly in love for their work's sake. And be at peace among yourselves.

      14 Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men.

      15 See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men.

      16 Rejoice evermore.

      Yeah Cynthia that sounds really socialist alright…

  • Choi

    The Democratic Party used to portray itself as "the party of the people/little guy".HAH!
    Whatever they" were" or NOT,they certainly are NOW the Party of HATRED of all things RIGHT and GOOD.
    Frankly ,anybody planning on voting Democratic ought to have a good look in the mirror,for the FACE of EVIL will stare back at them.

    No doubt that the Most High is wringing His hands in anguish over the snub by the Democrat,s. (Ps.2:1-6). Maybe someone ought to remind them of who`s universe this is.

  • Western Spirit

    Dear johnny, I seriously doubt the Most High is in anguish, much less upset, over anything the Left does. He predicted all this centuries ago.
