Dems: God never left our party

By Steve Kastenbaum, CNN

Charlotte, North Carolina (CNN)–Heads are bowed in prayer inside room 211 at the Charlotte Convention Center.

Last night, Democrats put the word 'god' back into their party platform following some strong criticism. For the folks at this daily prayer session though, god and the party never parted ways.

Delegates here are fine tuning the message that you can have deep religious convictions and still vote for a Democrat. It's a puzzle the party has been trying to crack for years.

“The notion that one party holds a cornerstone on Christianity, that’s breaking and that’s what one of our goals is – to break that stereotype because the reason that we’re Democrats is because we are Christians,” says Christina Forrester, founder and president of the group Christian Democrats of America.

It’s up to Reverend Derrick Harkins to make sure that people of faith see their values reflected in the party’s platform. He’s the National Director of Faith Outreach for the DNC.

“I really believe that people are excited because we’re talking about the ideas that really resonate with people across the spectrum in terms of faith," Harkins said.

      To put things in perspective, please realize that this fucker is from Galveston Texas. He is not a lifelong student of the Torah and Talmud from some Orthodox neighborhood in Jerusalem. Israel claims him because some of what he stole was stolen for Israel.

    I raised my Children to respect all Faiths, just like my Family raised me. when Bush was reelected in 2004, I actually left the Catholic church , because I felt that they were not standing by the People , that I knew would be hurt by his reelection. In the sixties when I was young , Catholic Priests marched alongside us against the Vietnam War and supported the Poor, disabled and homeless. I felt they let down the Country. I just didn't think God would support that. Nuns on the bus have inspired me to consider going back. God Bless America.

      @Peteyroo,

      "God can't bless anything because he does not exist except in the minds of feeble-minded morons."

      When someone makes a comment such as yours you automatically know that they have not spent even 1 second investigating these issues to see whether or not they are true. How moronic then to make such a statement.

      Peteyroo "God can't bless anything because he does not exist except in the minds of feeble-minded morons."

      Well since you are making a claim that to be religious one must be feeble -minded, then surely you have proof of that right? It seems to me that atheism is outside the norm given human religious belief...who has the problem then? .

    I am a Christian and a Democrat. Most Democrats are Christians, but the Democratic Party is the Party of INCLUSION of other FAITHS. Somehow the Athiests think they should exclude everyone except for them. It is interesting to ponder the need for attention, and obvious misery, of the athiests and athiest trolls....they have made a "faith" of trying to deny everyone else the right to have a different faith. They seem to be completely ignorant as to what Spiritual Philosophy is or the desire and need for many to walk a Spiritual Path in this life. But that is their loss, because what they are trying to bully and demand from the rest of us is unjust and illogical.

    • Ben

      Zombia, atheism is no more a faith or a religion than not collecting stamps is a hobby.

      The reason you are so frustrated is probably that you know that neither you nor anyone else has ever produced any evidence for your Christian tooth fairy, and now you are being called out on that. Glad you're feeling the pressure. Christians deserve it.

      Friend, those people are spiritually DEAD, that's why they don't understand. They have denied their own souls.
      And without a soul a man is dead, even though he is living. They are to be pitied more then the beasts that have no souls, because they have denied that which they were given to make them human .
      For this reason God has turned them over to all sorts of delusions, to believe lies.
      Consequently, they can't see with their eyes even what's obvious, nor can they understand them, but will stumble in darkness ever attempting to learn, but never coming to the knowledge of Truth.
      Their craving for "knowledge" and"attention" is due to restlessness that's within them, because there is a void inside of them which God has put there in every human being , that only He can fill.
      Any person who denies Him is filling it with something else.... that's human nature! And we know what, or rather WHO fills this void if God doesn't, especially in God-rejecors, who have crossed that certain line... And it is obvious many have, as you can see on these Faith blogs. They draw them like flies, because they must satisfy their restless emptiness inside of them!

      In this debate between christianity and atheism I find it incredibly distracting when people insist on mudslinging and using straw man arguments.

      Zombia (and other Christian democrats), I agree that most democrats are probably Christians and I believe that Christian ideals and democratic ideals align very well. I think you and I (atheist) are a lot more alike than we give each other credit for. Based on what I know of Christianity, I believe we both would like to provide equal opportunity for equal work, health care for those who need it, and responsible taxation of those who can afford it. However, I do take some offense to your premise that atheists are spiritually frustrated and miserable. Atheism should not be equated with Machiavellian or Ayn Rand philosophies especially since since they tend to align much more with Republican policies, while most atheists vote democratic! Christians who really follow the christian faith have good consciences, I'd agree–now it's your turn to understand that Christians aren't the only ones with consciences!

      If you have a problem with people who exclude Christians from their club, with people who think politics devoid of religion is the same thing as patriots devoid of religious people, then please address them specifically, rather than calling all atheists miserable or spiritually frustrated. Jesus doesn't have a monopoly on spiritual health. In turn, we atheists need to make better effort to really strip religion from politics and stop blaming all Christians when what we really despise are the subset who use religion to fight for terrible policies.

      Let's just all do our own thing and be cool with it.

      I find it hard to imagine anyone being so feeble-minded as to believe in religion. Whether it's Christianity or Islam, or anything. It's all nonsense.

      "but the Democratic Party is the Party of INCLUSION of other FAITHS. "

      That in itself is a call to apostasy. It is highly improbable then that you are an authentic Christian.

    I am a delegate and was on the floor when the vote was taken. And I can tell you that 1/2 the delegates didn't know what they were voting on and therefore voted "no". The problem was the DNC should have given us the language before the vote so we could read it. By the time 1/2 the delegation was paying attention the language had been removed from the screen.

    From France we watch the presidential Republican et Democrats meetings witth stupefaction. Constant incantations to God from both sides, Cross waiving everywhere, prayers in public buildings and by candidates to the highest public mandate. This constant reference to God makes us think of ""the Christian Republic of the USA".

    Every high school student here is aware of Jefferson who visited France in the 1780's I think. Didn't Jefferson write to Pastor Danbury :

    "Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should "make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof", thus building a wall of separation between Church & State".

      Two problems with your post:
      1. That was a private letter and in no way sets any sort of national policy.
      2. It was our country's faith in God that elevated us to the number one country in the world
      and France is what? Number 112? Having us for a friend sure paid off for you dudes when
      Hitler was around, didn't it?
      Sure couldn't count on France being able to defend itself, that's for sure.

    God never left the party because god was never there. There is no god. It is all in your imgaination alone.
    There is no evidence to support the existence of god, none whatsoever.

    The null hypothesis is that there is no god. Since there is no evidence to support the existence of god, the null hypothesis holds as the logical position. To depart from this position without evidence is to delve into fantasy and insanity.
    Just as it is insanity to believe in the 6ft tall green monster in my closet without evidence of its existence, so is it insanity to believe in god without evidence.-

      @Ben:
      It is a second grade playground argument to go around saying, "I'm smarter than you!"
      This argument guarantees that you are:
      not a college graduate
      earn less than 40k per year
      live in your mom's basement while living off of free government money

      Basically, it guarantees that you are a loser with a bad case of low self esteem.

      NoCredFred, there is no evidence at all of anything magical, such as Jesus or God. What evidence do you have other than your nonsense Bible? I like your Bible because it's thick and makes a good coaster for a nice, tall mug of beer. It soaks up the beer sliding down the outside of the mug. Your pastor showed me how useful it is down at the local tavern. Your mom brought a hymnal, which quickly became soaked and useless because it's just too thin. She'll know better next time. She and your pastor can really down the brew. They both got pretty liquored up. I don't know what happened after I left, but they both were still going strong.

There are many good Democrats, but most support those groups that malign religious minorities for political gain (and gay Democrats have been instructed to promote bigotry against Mormons, Catholics etc 24/7 so they can get Obama elected and push a hurtful agenda, and they are brutal and dishonest in doing it)

    Putting the kibosh/”google” on all the "active" gods:

    • There was probably no Abraham i.e. the foundations of Judaism, Christianity and Islam are non-existent.

    • There was probably no Moses i.e the pillars of Judaism, Christianity and Islam have no strength of purpose.

    prob•a•bly
    Adverb: Almost certainly; as far as one knows or can tell.

    • There was no Gabriel i.e. Islam fails as a religion. Christianity partially fails.

    • There was no Easter i.e. Christianity completely fails as a religion.

    • There was no Moroni i.e. Mormonism is nothing more than a business cult.

    • Sacred/revered cows, monkey gods, castes, reincarnations and therefore Hinduism fails as a religion.

    • Fat Buddhas here, skinny Buddhas there, reincarnated Buddhas everywhere makes for a no on Buddhism.

    Added details available upon written request.

    A quick search will put the kibosh on any other groups calling themselves a religion.

    e.g. Taoism

    "The origins of Taoism are unclear. Traditionally, Lao-tzu who lived in the sixth century is regarded as its founder. Its early philosophic foundations and its later beliefs and rituals are two completely different ways of life. Today (1982) Taoism claims 31,286,000 followers.

    Legend says that Lao-tzu was immaculately conceived by a shooting star; carried in his mother's womb for eighty-two years; and born a full grown wise old man. "

      @ Tuvia, your posts reveal sense of urgency that you feel. It is understandable, knowing that Israel and her people are surrounded by enemies and are losing support of the few friends they had in the past. But God is NOT done with Israel.
      What is happening now has been foretold long ago, and we're seeing Scriptures fulfilled before our very eyes.
      The arm of flesh may fail you, but the LORD doesn't forget His promises. He gave them to Abraham, He'll fulfill them to the last letter.
      If God is for you, who can be against you?....There are more with you then with them! God will fight your fight, but do not be stiff necked people to go your own way, shutting the voice of God who is calling you back to Him!
      Know also that God of Israel is God of all creation and He is not partial to any, but looks at the hearts of people He created. You have friends among Christian people, but you have to humble yourself and acknowledge that you need us just like we need you.

      This is the prayer of people who love and care for you, those of your brothers and sisters who are in the family of God through our faith in God of Abraham, Isaac and Jakov through Yeshua, whom you still don't recognize, but God will cause you to see as time nears for the Scriptures being fulfilled.
      If you can read this prayer with a humble heart, you will feel the Spirit of God tug on your heart, showing you there is a hope and promise He has for you.
      Be still and know that HE is God, and today if you hear His voice HARDEN NOT YOUR HEART!

      ~~ ~ May the Lord God of Israel who is the God of all Creation protect His people Israel
      May He send His Angels with flaming swords to fight their battles, protect their land and inhabitants thereof.... may their enemies be scattered and confused, and heir weapons turned on each other instead.
      May He bless all those who bless Israel , and may the hate of those who hate her fester in them into a sore that will be their own demise....

      May His people Israel know that they are not forsaken, and know the presence of God's strong hand always with them. May they be strengthened and encouraged knowing that they are not forsaken any longer...
      May their hearts become humble before Him and so tender, that they will hear His voice softly speaking to them, recognizing that it is He who is calling them, and restoring life again unto them.
      O, may they not shrink back and shut Him out as He shows them the prophecies of old, as His Spirit bears witness of the One whom they refused to look at for so long!
      May the name of Yeshua, the humble Servant of whom Isaiah wrote in chapter 42 and 53 of his book, penetrate deep into their hearts and may the veil that kept them from seeing Him be lifted and the light of God shines in, revealing His truth unto them. Oh, may His people Israel mourn for not seeing Him before, but rejoice for Father's love who restores life into them and calls them again to look at Yeshua, and not run from His tender voice. He will not scorn, He will not rebuke, but He will gather and heal , making all things NEW! ~~~

      This is the Heart of God for His people Israel, and He will move heaven and earth, (LITERALY, MOVE) to bring it to pass.....

      Oh, the depth of the riches both of wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out... He has hidden them from those who are wise in their own eyes, but revealed them to the humble, and those of broken and con/trite hearts...
      This is the wisdom of our God!

      This Jonathan Pollard is a traitor to the U.S. And a highly unstable lout to boot. Keep him locked up.
