Christian Faith No Longer Needed in Democrat’s Convention—God Eliminated From Platform Language (Update:Video Added)

David Brody at CBN.com reports that the DNC, (and the Democratic Party is no longer in need of God. In 2008, the “inclusive party” used God’s name only once—“God-given”.
Guess what? God’s name has been removed from the Democratic National Committee platform.
This is the paragraph that was in the 2008 platform:
“We need a government that stands up for the hopes, values, and interests of working people, and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their God-given potential.”
Now the words “God-given” have been removed. The paragraph has been restructured to say this:
“We gather to reclaim the basic bargain that built the largest middle class and the most prosperous nation on Earth – the simple principle that in America, hard work should pay off, responsibility should be rewarded, and each one of us should be able to go as far as our talent and drive take us.”
Dick Durbin on the Defensive:
I watched this interview with Bret Baier , asking Dick Durbin the question: “Why the party had made this decision”. Durbin’s response was that “if the narrative on this station, on this network, and on your channel, is that Democrats are a Godless people, they ought to know better”. But even though Baier explained that this was not Fox’s “assumption”, Baier pressed the question of why the Democrats found it necessary to remove God’s name. Durbin was clearly PO-ed at the question.
With the Democrats “omitting” Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and now striking God from their platform, you could say the party has finally accomplished their mission to make this a secular nation. “Godless” Mr. Durbin? Well, no, but it’s clear that your party is working on it.
