                Why did the Democratic Convention eliminate from their platform the word God?

                The answer to this question is quite simple; the Democrats want government, the political institution, to be at the center of your very existence.  To eliminate the idea of God, to deny God’s existence or relevance in your life and in America’s life is to deny the very foundation of the United States.  Apparently, the leadership of the Democratic Party wants to revolutionize the United States into a completely secular humanist state.   In this state, God cannot be prevalent.    If God was important in your life, how would the “party” be able to control you?  The state is portrayed “as all knowing and all caring”.  The state will answer the call of your needs and wants.  Just go to the state for guidance, for your needs, and wants, and in this way, you will be paying homage and will be obligated to a secular institution.  You will be beholding to the secular institution.

                In the United States, the American people are endowed by their creator, GOD, to pursue their lives without government interference; you know the saying, “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”.  As long as the Democrats, or should I say, Socialist Democrats, are controlling the state, GOVERNMENT will endow Americans with “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”.   

                Many questions must be clarified by the Democratic Party in their quest to eliminate the need of God.  If you were watching the voice count of the delegates at the Convention timidly reaffirming God back into the platform, the scene was dismal.  Most of the delegates were in a NO position---God was NOT to be put back into the platform.  But the political pundits said otherwise.  They knew what problems they had created. 

Is this Party minimizing God in your life?  Does this Party want a Godless state?  Is God made to be insignificant in your life?

Hello! I enjoyed your blog entry immensely, but I have a slightly different point of view to add. Let's face it. God's probably not real. The whole concept is antiquated and was designed to keep people in check before laws. It's something we no longer need as a society but it has stuck around for some reason or another. You know, kind of like men's nipples. While I wish one political party would disavow the entire concept of religion, it's clearly political suicide. Here's to hoping though! In your blog entry, you write that, "The state will answer the call of your needs and wants." As inept as the state is, I would much rather take my chances with their help as opposed to that of an invisible and omniscient being. Two hands at work (even if they're, gasp, Socialist Democrat hands!) are so much more powerful than a thousand hands at prayer. Now get your head out of the sand and enjoy the rest of your life. Thanks!

"God's probably not real" While you might believe this, I don't. That said, I will probably be switching my party to Independent.

What a ridiculous load of nonsense.

Well there, M, you take your chances that there is no God, and I'm going to cover my bases and act as though there is a Supreme Being, a Judgement Day, and some sort of eternal reward or damnation. Its been my experience that atheism sounds real good right up to that point in your life when you come to the stark realization that some "godless" zealot is bent on killing you. Join the military, volunteer for forward duty in Afghanistan, and let me know your thoughts on God when, or if, you get home.

AJ: You will be roundly criticized by ardent Dems who have allowed every tree hugger, moon howler, and supporter of a nanny state to join them. I for one am in your corner. Having actually read history, and visited our marvelous Capitol Building in Harrisburg, this Republic was indeed established by Divine Providence. Those who seek to abandon God in our lives and our Government must be rooted out. We have a chance on November 6th to do just that.

As a Democrat I'll take the tree huggers anyday if the Republicans keep the snake handlers.
Mike September 17, 2012 at 01:52 PM
And there is an overwhelming majority of Democrats who believe in God, including President Obama.

One thing in life that I have learned is that it's useless to argue with delusional people. This includes people who believe in invisible beings and fairy stories written by the original purveyors of said nonsense, and those who still believe in trickle-down (voodoo) economics. Oh, and those that believe that the Pirates will one day make the playoffs. Good luck to all in their delusions, but please stop trying to convince me of your folly.
