Video: Democrats were against God before they were for Him

posted at 10:01 am on September 6, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Mark Halperin has declared the God Debate a closed issue, but he’s the only one who is.  Jim VandeHei of Politico marvels at the debacle created by Democrats in their attempt to first excise God and recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital from the party platform, and then attempt to correct the first error by compounding it exponentially with a floor fight.  It’s exactly the kind of distraction that Democrats should have seen coming, and one that left them in the Kerryesque position of being against God before half of them were for him:

It’s not closed on CBS this morning, either.  Their morning show featured key Obama aides David Axelrod and Valerie Jarrett attempting to shift blame to everyone else over the platform debacle:

CHARLIE ROSE: He didn’t know it was not in?

VALERIE JARRETT:  He — he was not aware –

DAVID AXELROD: Honestly, Charlie, he had, you know, he was counting on others to — he has some other duties, and responsibilities.  So, when he learned that what had been in the platform had been taken out, he said, “Put it back in.”

ROSE: He learned yesterday?

AXELROD: Yeah.

That, however, conflicts with the version of events the Obama campaign presented to Politico yesterday:

Two platform planks sparked division at the Democratic National Convention here Wednesday.

Things got so bad that President Barack Obama was forced to personally intervene, ordering language mentioning God and naming Jerusalem as the rightful capital of Israel be added.

Obama had seen the language prior to the convention, a campaign source said, but did not seek to change it until after Republicans jumped on the omissions of God and Jerusalem late Wednesday. And even then, it had to be forced through a convention hall full of delegates who nearly shouted down the change.

So first he was aware of it but chose not to make an issue of it until the controversy arose. Now, he was unaware of it completely until the controversy arose.  Obviously, Team Obama is having trouble getting its story straight, but even beyond that is this question: Is this leadership?

Exactly. What fools would purposefully position their Party to appeal to less than 20% of Americans?

So as the Democratic National Convention devolves into “The Hunger Games” the free press keeps it out of the papers. Hmmm.
Just curious, is Donald Sutherland by any chance scheduled to speak?

He’s seen the internal polling numbers. The Party has put him in charge of getting The One re-elected. He is part of the Chicago machine. He knows what happens when you fail The Boss.

Will Rahm be sending him a dead fish soon?

What’s the big surprise that God was yanked from the platform.
Obama is “The Won”.
You shall put no other gods before him.
And he recognises the 14 hole as his seat of power.
Heck Jerusalem does not even have a decent 9 hole course worthy of him.

mechkiller_k on September 6, 2012 at 11:47 AM

Who can read this warning from Saint Paul and not see the Democrat Party as clearly as the nose on their own face?

For professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. And they changed the glory of the incorruptible God into the likeness of the image of a corruptible man, and of birds, and of fourfooted beasts, and of creeping things.

Wherefore God gave them up to the desires of their heart, unto uncleanness, to dishonour their own bodies among themselves. Who changed the truth of God into a lie; and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

For this cause God delivered them up to shameful affections. For their women have changed the natural use into that use which is against nature. And, in like manner, the men also, leaving the natural use of the women, have burned in their lusts one towards another, men with men working that which is filthy, and receiving in themselves the recompense which was due to their error.

And as they liked not to have God in their knowledge, God delivered them up to a reprobate sense, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all iniquity, malice, fornication, avarice, wickedness, full of envy, murder, contention, deceit, malignity, whisperers, Detractors, hateful to God, contumelious, proud, haughty, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Foolish, dissolute, without affection, without fidelity, without mercy. Who, having known the justice of God, did not understand that they who do such things, are worthy of death; and not only they that do them, but they also that consent to them that do them.

And not just Democrats either…How many self professed conservatives/libertarians defend pornography, prostitution, divorce/adultery (Jesus was quite clear on the matter), premarital sex/fornication, Contraception (inventors of evil things indeed) etc…

The protection of Divine Providence is leaving us.

Wake up America. Time is short.

I love the way dems play spin the blamebottle and never see it pointing at themselves. Even DWS, bless her heart, managed to antagonize friendly media types by stubbornly lying and denying any problem at all with the whole debacle. So either Obama is incompetent, or he sent an incompetent to check on the drafting of the platform, but none of this is anybody’s fault according to DWS, except Republicans.

Pork-Chop on September 6, 2012 at 11:55 AM

The three big egos at the convention, (Michelle, Bubba and Obama) are no doubt very unhappy right now.

This took the oxygen out of Michelle’s big speech, and distracted from the buildup to Bubba’s. And Obama is now playing defense and probably has to re-write his apeech to talk about God and Jerusalem.

Karma is a beyutch.

President George Washington would question the Democrats’ patriotism.

Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, Religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of Patriotism, who should labour to subvert these great Pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of Men & citizens.

- President George Washington

Religion and morality are indispensable supports to political prosperity, and anyone who tries to subvert them (Democrats) claims the tribute of Patriotism in vain.

President Harry Truman would say that the sooner that religion is taken out of politics… the faster we end up with a totalitarian government.

The fundamental basis of this Nation’s law was given to Moses on the Mount. The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings which we get from Exodus and St. Matthew, from Isaiah and St. Paul. I don’t think we emphasize that enough these days.

If we don’t have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.

- Democrat President Harry S. Truman

Now Harry Truman is just somebody that the Democrats used to know.

And, as Obama’s 2008 Campaign Co-Chair pointed out last week when he spoke to REPUBLICAN National Convention, Truman isn’t the only historical Decmocrat President that the modern-day Democrats used to know.

Democrats: The party of Godless, Totalitarian Govenment.

And yet, the nation has never seen it. Tonight, I’d like to finally change that.”

I really do not think God sees a difference between outright denial of him or acceptance of his being while ignoring what is right.

God’s laws are meant to foster a society that thrives and grows and prospers. That is why he gave those laws, instructions and guidelines. I am quite certain that fostering man made laws that are counter to those laws is just as bad in his eyes as declarations of government worship. Laws such as those that damage the family, defeat procreation, separate actions from accountability and most important, those laws that lay upon the innocent the punishment.

Social security, medicare, medicaid, SSDI, welfare all fall into these catagories. As well as TARP, ethonol subsidies, paying to rebuild homes destroyed in areas that are known to have frequent events that will destroy them again and again and again.

All the welfare programs make not having a family a viable and easier choice for people to make. You cannot say you are pro-life when you protect and extend the life of these programs.

Republicans are no better than the Democrats on these matters. So I suggest you all plan to pull that timber from your eyes, so you can better see the mote in the eyes of those you wish to attack and will make any excuse to attack. We expect this stuff from Democrats, I expect much better from Republicans.

Just thought of something as to why the dems did not include God. They did not want to be considered bitter clingers.

It was creepy how they denied Him thrice via voice vote. All that was missing was a rooster crowing.

Sure would be good if someone could put that on YouTube and have the rooster crowing. That would go viral.

Well, it seems not everything that was removed from the DNC Platform was restored.

full pro-Israel language from the 2008 platform has not been and will not be restored.

But the full language of the 2008 platform is still gone:

The United States and its Quartet partners should continue to isolate Hamas until it renounces terrorism, recognizes Israel’s right to exist, and abides by past agreements. Sustained American leadership for peace and security will require patient efforts and the personal commitment of the President of the United States. The creation of a Palestinian state through final status negotiations, together with an international compensation mechanism, should resolve the issue of Palestinian refugees by allowing them to settle there, rather than in Israel. All understand that it is unrealistic to expect the outcome of final status negotiations to be a full and complete return to the armistice lines of 1949.

Maybe He just didn’t fit into one of the standard leftist race/gender categories.

Allen West’s people already did one, albeit sans rooster. Bet you’ll have one by COB today, though.

Obama boasts of his persistence.

If there’s one thing the Democrats have proven, is that when they fail, they try-try again.

The deletion of “God” strikes out any constitutional unalienable rights given no endowment of RIGHTS.

Don’t cry they didn’t let you know their platform. Never let mere words, just words, get in the way of Obama’s POLICY.

Pretty stupid for such smart people. /s

And how big of a failure are you that you can’t schedule balloons?

Oh, so now we are supposed to endure you turning to biblical allusion in order to make a point?

Sorry, but watching those two — Valerie Jarrett and David Axelrod — as they gamely but unconvincingly lied to Charlie Rose, was more than enough bad humor for one day.

We’re all laughed out.

CHARLIE ROSE: He didn’t know it was not in?

VALERIE JARRETT: He — he was not aware –

DAVID AXELROD: Honestly, Charlie, he had, you know, he was counting on others to — he has some other duties, and responsibilities. So, when he learned that what had been in the platform had been taken out, he said, “Put it back in.”

ROSE: He learned yesterday?

AXELROD: Yeah.

Your pathetic attempt at playing off that humor is not funny. It comes off as stupid.
