Proposed slogan for the DNC -- "The DNC, come for the socialism, stay for the atheism and anti semitism."
When Barack Obama, the de facto head of the Democrat Party, had the lone reference to God and recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel removed from the democrat national platform, he effectively alienated Christians and Jews from his base....just kidding, democrats didn't care?
The US government has always had a policy of supporting Israel in the middle east as she is the sole representative republic in the region. American Christians support Israel because the Bible commanded in Genesis 12:2-3 when God spoke to Abraham saying, [sic]"......I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse...".
This isn't a post about supporting Israel. I don't care where you stand on that, my question for democrat believers is how can you as Christians, stand with a party whose basic platform specifically and intentionally removed God and political support for Israel.
"But Ed", you whine, "surely you as a libertarian can't agree with everything the GOP stands for, yet you vote with the GOP most of the time."
Certainly you are correct, but my differences with the GOP are political minutiae compared to the slap in the face to Christians of specifically removing the name of God from the party documentation. I don't know how it's possible to rationalize that unless progressivism and the advancement of a socialist agenda are more important than your belief in God.....then it makes perfect sense.
I guess if you are a casual, for-appearances Christian and your belief isn't really that big a part of your life, then abandoning God isn't a big deal for you.
