A lot has already been written on the word God being removed from the Democratic Party’s plank. Though that never stopped me before from weighing in.
It does remind me of Jesus saying”let you yes mean yes” in that to some extent there plank is more truthful. Besides do we really want them using the word in a plank that is so in love with abortion and same-sex marriage? It is a positive thing to some extent that they removed God from the plank since the writers of the document had already removed God from their heart. To the extent that is true I find nothing to rejoice about.
Besides why mention God when his replacement is already President since Barack is a jealous god and admits no rivals. That the exclusion of God from the plank coincides with Obama’s presidency is no coincidence. After all the President has omitted God from Thanksgiving Day speeches and also censored the word when reciting the famous passage from the Declaration of Independence. The man who complained about people clinging to religion will have no problem with this exclusion.
Recently a video from the host committee for the Democratic Convention stated “Government is the only thing we all belong to” – yikes! The Obama campaign is not trying to distance itself from this video played at the convention and that is understandable since it states to plainly what they believe. They believe in a kind of bureaucratic pantheism where the government is in all of us and we are all part of the government. From the New Deal to the New Age. All intercessions are to be rerouted from God to Government as the nanny state has much higher aspirations than just nannyhood – more like what motivated Babylon tower building – but they didn’t build that.
While God is removed from their plank, Moloch is not. While Moloch does not get specifically referenced his hove prints are all over this document and the convention.
Protecting A Woman’s Right to Choose. The Democratic Party strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to make decisions regarding her pregnancy, including a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay. We oppose any and all efforts to weaken or undermine that right. Abortion is an intensely personal decision between a woman, her family, her doctor, and her clergy; there is no place for politicians or government to get in the way.
So what they are asking for is Planned Parenthood and others to offer free abortions – oh wait thats not it. The “regardless of ability to pay” is not exactly code words requiring the official DNC Decoder Ring (which looks just like a package of birth control pills). It does not take a prophet, a son of a prophet, or someone who once played a prophet on TV to forecast exactly how HHS rules will change in requiring abortion coverage. Or if not exactly that something else that achieves the same goal. The total lack of anybody even pretending to be pro-life at their convention and having the head of the largest abortion provider give a prime time speech we know exactly how little they are concerned about opposition to abortion. If the President was arrogant in his decisions against Catholics and others in his first term we can only expect worse. Health and Inhuman Services will certainly grow.
The administration that uses religious profiling to eliminate Catholics from participating of course say they are against religious profiling in their plank. I do wonder what believers who are Democrats think about their new plank – though once you have swallowed abortion and other intrinsic evils it is hard to complain when it comes to this. Certainly some members of the party have been pretty touch when asked about the exclusion of a reference to God and no doubt they are seeing this as an error that pragmatically didn’t have to be made. But really there is no point in referencing God if the rest of the plank not only excludes him but praises evil. The official religion of secularism is atheism and more and more this is being demonstrated.
Update: While I was writing this they voted to restore the one reference of God back. Though the number of boos certainly didn’t make it sound like it was a two-thirds agreeing and the whole evolution is rather an embarrassment to them.
Though that does not make the multiple references to God in the GOP’s plank perfect.
“Not every one who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you evildoers.’
Not having a plank that proclaims intrinsic evils is certainly a good start.
