Exclusive: Democrats Drop 'God' From Party Platform


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.”

Stay in the know. Get The Brody File Weekly:

The Brody File has calls into DNC to explain why God’s name has been dropped from the platform. Some critics will suggest that when you have planks in your platform that support abortion rights and gay marriage then it's no wonder that God's name would be dropped as well.

Delegates will vote on the platform on Tuesday.

There is one section on "faith" and here is what it says:

"Faith has always been a central part of the American story, and it has been a driving force of progress and justice throughout our history. We know that our nation, our communities, and our lives are made vastly stronger and richer by faith and the countless acts of justice and mercy it inspires. Faith- based organizations will always be critical allies in meeting the challenges that face our nation and our world – from domestic and global poverty, to climate change and human trafficking. People of faith and religious organizations do amazing work in communities across this country and the world, and we believe in lifting up and valuing that good work, and finding ways to support it where possible. We believe in constitutionally sound, evidence-based partnerships with faith-based and other non-profit organizations to serve those in need and advance our shared interests. There is no conflict between supporting faith-based institutions and respecting our Constitution, and a full commitment to both principles is essential for the continued flourishing of both faith and country."

Pastor Hagee’s problem, just like that of the whole gamut of so-called Zionists, is that he has been snookered into believing that Christ’s fulfillment of the Mosaic Covenant is insufficient for the Jewish people. So, rather than grasping the spiritual reality that believers in Christ are collectively, as St. Paul put it, the “New Israel of God”, he sees only the carnal reality (the presence of a state called Israel) and imagines that, somehow or another, this is evidence of a dualistic meaning behind Old Testament references to “Israel”. Such dualism existed for a time, of course, as Christ tried so hard to explain to the Pharisees, but the whole matter was conflated in Christ at the Cross. There is no covenant available to those Jews who refuse to accept Christ as their King. Purely and Simply. That’s not anti-Semitic. That’s the Truth. And it is a truth which cost Stephen his life (Acts, Ch. 7). It’s a shame that Christians under the influence of Hagee’s wicked idolatry of Israel (t

David,

Congrats on your link from Drudge. The platform "restructing" more than removes God, it removes aspiring to have a system that allows one to make the most of their ability. To be able to go as far as the system will take you is like saying, "I hope you get to where you go." A far cry maybe from where you want to go, or the level your potential would let you rise. The Dems have dumbed down their goals.

# RE: Exclusive: Democrats Drop 'God' From Party Platform

The section in the Dem's platform on 'Faith' makes no sense to Christian believers without reference to God, because God gives us the ability to have the faith to believe in Him. (Eph.2:8-9). And for good measure, it is impossible to believe in Him -- and to please Him -- without Faith. (Heb.11:6). I think the hidden message behind the platform is a Humanistic view of life -- that as long as you have 'faith' in something (perhaps the Democratic Party?), you're OK. On the other side of the coin, I believe we Christians should not have 'faith' in the Republican Party either. The object of our faith should rest in the Person, Life and Work of Jesus Christ, God's only Son.

I find it very disheartening that this type of partisan political deception is published on a network that claims to be Christian.

In the last 4 years I have struggled to come to peace with the Christian Church as a democrat and find myself more and more disenfranchised with the religious establishment for this very reason.

I believe your commentary above is a reach and a stretch of the truth. This is where the flames of the sentiment "love your Christ but hate his fan club" is fanned.

Well, you certainly do not have to be responsible if you are a liberal-they are excepted. You only have to look at their recent messages in the media and repeated, profane characterizations of conservatives to realize that.

And you all agree that hard work should pay off. Except it shouldn't pay off too much. Then you are greedy and rapacious.

And we certainly should all go as far as our talents will take us. That way, the results of your hard work can be confiscated and given to those in the inner city that do not wish to participate in the folly of hard work.

Finally, the liberals believe as Marx and Lenin did that religion is the opiate of masses. What need of God when you have Government.

Abortion has been the main plank of the Democrat Democrat party for more than 30 years (even if not specifically stated). They have chosen to have that vile, evil, practice as their shining example of individual freedom. How any Christian can ever vote for ANY Democrat is beyond my reasoning. I guess there were people who once thought to themselves, "Yes, I think slavery is horrible, but it's an indivisual choice, so I'll still vote for that slavemaster". The choice is so clear in this year's election that if Obama wins, it's obvious our country will have turned a corner it can't return from, and has earned all the punishment it will receive.

It’s generally fascinating to witness the sensitivity and emphasis placed on key words in speeches both in perspective of the presenter and of the audience. While the underlying values of the message are maintained. The phrasing seems very much overhauled for the sake of adjusting the portion, rather then the removal of a single, albeit notable, word. If there was any trepidation to be had over the matter when revising the section, I would think it was for those who might find the notion of their ability being a gift from ‘God’ as misplacing credit. For those who have a firm belief in ‘God’ having due credit on the other hand, the omission likely won’t hinder their interpretation.

Wearing Jesus on one's sleeve and mentioning God in a political environment does NOT make one a follower of Jesus, or a God-lover or Bible believer for that matter. As a nation of MANY faiths, religions, or lack thereof, I prefer the "Faith Statement" to the seeming "bragging" that God is on the side of one party or another. IMHO, it's not too far from blasphemy. To make such a huge deal out of something so petty, especially as a Mormon (theologically NOT biblical) is the Republican (more Godly???) candidate, I dare say Mr. Brody is creating DIS-unity in the Church..just the opposite of what Jesus taught. ...not to mention that the "Godly" party platform is sadly NOT what Jesus taught.

Is anyone really surprised the Dems reject God? I once heard a song with the line, "If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything." This describes Dems perfectly. By rejecting any mention of God, they're actually saying they need nothing from God and all that is good and right comes from government and/or man. This kind of attitude flies in the face of Truth and is the reason our country is in desperate shape. It's unbelievable to think the only way to include everyone, in their minds, is to reject God. They are the enemy of all that is right and true.

Of course the Democrats would remove God from their platform for you can't have both God and Allah at the same Convention for those that consider themselves religious. There are many that will not vote their convictions this election but it should be recognized that those that overtook the Democratic party and turned it into what it is today will come next for the Republican party.

Also remember that in the last time it is not going to be a rosy time for Christians and the Church and Jews for that time, when it comes, will be a horrendous time for Christians so if you are an advocate of the Last Days then this should not only be expected but far worse in the coming years.

"I pray Heaven to bestow THE BEST OF BLESSINGS ON THIS HOUSE and All that shall hereafter Inhabit it, May none but Honest and Wise Men ever rule under This Roof."

Since the Democratic Platform does not utilize the name of God, but would rather disallow it in their platform, it is of no great deal. The Creator's greatness, glory does not depend on having the word God in their platform. God is what he is, not who he is. He has numerous Names, thankfully they do not use them because for one thing, he is neither Democrat or Republican. The Creator is not one that political parties put in their back pocket and pull him out when it is to their advantage. He will not be used by anyone, and it is clear that most people do just that. It doesn't work. I am pleased that they removed the name God from their platform. Doubtful if he would endorse most of their platform anyways. It is no accident that any of the Names of the Creator are not in common use, thereby it would be rare if anyone blasphemies his Name. For that I am thankful. Joel Rodgers

The Bible and Capitalism
posted on July 17, 2012 byEric Rauch



Richard Land, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission for the Southern Baptist Convention, sounded off recently on why capitalism is the most biblically compatible economic system. Although his article was short on biblical verses and reasoning, he made the most important point early on. Communism and socialism appear to work on paper, but they always fail to take the most important factor into consideration: the sinful heart of man.
Leftists and redistributionists will often point to Acts 4 for biblical proof that the Bible, and specifically the New Testament, teaches socialism. Nothing could be farther from the truth of course, but since it is such a common argument, it would be a good idea to discover why it is not teaching redistribution when so many believe it is. The relevant verses are 32-35:

Silly people think "God" is the name of God. "God" is a generic term referring to any supernatural deity. Ever since the concept of a supernatural deity was conceived there have been countless Gods and they've all had different names. If you're so proud of the deity of your choice, don't you think it might be a nice idea to use the name of which ever deity you're talking about?

Think about what this party and what their adherents believe in...............they are the party of the anarchists and the gay movement, both of whom are virulently anti-Christian. They are the party of same-sex marriage and abortion, both beliefs are opposed to God and both can only be adopted as a platform by people who don't really believe in God. They are the party of those who don't believe in the Bible as God's enduring and living word. They are also a party that contains most of those who have decided that there must be a progressive revision of the Bible, making what God has called sin, into something that is politically correct.

Oh, God was dropped by them a long time ago.

This error in judgement, I believe, will prove to be a momentous one. The Christians who compromise, and rationalize away scriptural instruction (often citing the difference in cultures as the reason, but that's neither here nor there) will easily be swayed into accepting this act, through the use of their usual rhetoric of 'tolerant', 'inclusive', 'diversity' - and will go forth and preach the party line, still somehow seeing themselves as morally superior.

Call your faith whatever you choose and worship as you wish - just don't push your faith on anothers right to theirs, or take offense to their right to their beliefs. There were no Muslim's who fought to flee European poverty and oppression to develop and establish a new free world called America, nor did any Muslim write or sign the Constitution of the United States. They didn't fight to unite it either in the Civil War, and you are a spoiled, ungrateful, ignorant child if you don't know what it took to make (and keep) this country the land of the free. Its because of the Brave. Grow up!

All the Democrates are in for a big surprise, albeit an unpleasant one.
The following is a quote from Blessed Anna Marie Taigi, who lived in the 16th and 17th century along with many more from a different age and locale.
"Flouting of church laws, irreverence and immodesty in church, fall in attendance at church.
Lack of charity towards others, heartlessness, indifference, divisions, contentions, godlessness, pride in human knowledge.
Breakdown of family life: immorality, adultery, perversion of youth via the media (e.g. homosexuals giving lectures in schools), immodest fashions (e.g. mini-skirts, bikinis, see-throughs), people concerned only with eating, drinking, dancing and other pleasures.
Civil commotions, contempt for authority, downfall of governments, confusion in high places, corruption, coups d'etat, civil war, revolution.

I think we all have to realize that the bottom line here is about being elected and the power that comes with public office. In this case the issue is about being re-elected. Of course the Democrats will drop God from all mention. This has been coming for some time and should surprise no one. To think otherwise is not intelligent . Look at the party platform...it is based on liberal ideas. Nothing is wrong with that. I am a very religious person but am always turned off by over zealous religious persons when it comes to politics. I am disappointed to see how politics has moved America slowly and steadily away from the ideologies of the founding fathers. My most discerning thought on the re-election of President Obama is how can we believe in the leadership of a man who traveled around the world apologizing for the country that I love. The US is a great nation built on achievements. As a good friend of mine says "Lead or get out of the way!" 2nd place is the 1st loser ...your choice .

Shameful & dishonest reporting by CBN!! The head of the Greek Orthodox Church OPENED the convention with a prayer: “O God, Assist us to set aside personal differences, so that our unity of purpose will rise above us all as an enduring symbol of freedom.." and continued for 3 minutes, referencing Biblical figures Sarah and Abraham. God was mentioned NUMEROUS times by various speakers.Michelle Obama ended with "God bless you all, & God bless the United States of America." "Democrats did include a section in their 2012 platform specifically devoted to faith: "faith has always been a central part of the American story, and it has been a driving force of progress and justice throughout our history..." etc. Scheduled ministers for prayers at the DNC: an evangelical (tonite), a Bishop in the African Methodist Episcopal Church, a Jewish Rabbi, the Pres. of the Latino Evangelical Assoc, and the same Roman Catholic Archbishop who opened the RNC will close at DNC.

@Hunsaker - In case you haven't heard, it was not the Democrats, but the REPUBLICANS WHO LEGALIZED abortion. SIX (out of NINE) Supreme Court Justices who decided Roe vs. Wade were REPUBLICAN, appointed by REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTS. The MAJORITY JUSTICE WHO WROTE THE DOCUMENT WAS A CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN, APPOINTED by a REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT. A REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT WAS IN OFFICE (GERALD FORD) when Roe VS. WADE was decided. WHEN THERE WAS A CHANCE TO REVISIT THE DECISION, THERE WERE 8 (out of nine) CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN JUSTICES, Appointed by REPUBLICAN Presidents who chose not to overturn. It doesn't matter what a Democratic President or Congress THINKS about Roe VS. WADE. IT WAS DECIDED BY THE SUPREME COURT - UNDER REPUBLICAN MAJORITY. Get an education before you decide that Democrats decided abortion, and as much as it is talked about by today's Democrats, they are powerless as far as abortion is concerned. States can decide certain provisions at the state level, though.

I predict that at least one speaker at the DNC will acknowledge the value of believing in God, with an outside chance of mentioning Jesus on a positive note. We will just have to WAIT to see if my prediction (NOT a prophecy) comes true. I am just making a prediction, in the same way I would think that a quarterback would complete 2 passes in a football game. I just think that the chances are pretty good that at least one of the speakers will have a conscience.

I don't know why anybody is so surprised that the DNC would drop God from it's platform.

You get a Godless party, with Godless objectives, with followers who honor the passions of their own selfish hearts before recognizing the law and majesty of a selfless God.....well, this is what you're gonna get. This is jut a culmination of what has already been brewing for quite a while. The shame is, a lot of people are still going to vote democrat; for a party that's ok with platforms and ideas that are directly contrary to God's word (abortion, homosexuality, etc). A lot of these people call themselves Christians, but they've called themselves God by putting their own selfish passions ahead of God's word.

I don't know if anybody mentioned this, but another aspect that's been dropped is the call for the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel (the DNC still says it supports Israel, but I don't believe support for Jerusalem would thereby be a "given").

Communism and Christianity cannot coexist

How many hundred trillion dollars do you have in your bank account? The country of Zimbabwe is now printing $100,000,000,000,000 notes because of their lack of fiscal discipline, which led to bankruptcy, which in turn led to hyperinflation, and when this happened in Germany, people needed a wheel-barrow to carry enough Reich Marks to buy a loaf of bread.

Thanks to Barrack Hussein Obama borrowing 41 cents on every dollar we spend, we are on the same path as Zimbabwe. He is in the process of bankrupting this country, Because he cannot increase the wealth of poorer nations, he is going to bring ours down to their level, since that is the only way he can make everyone equal. I am sure he will find a way to hold on to his $10,000,000 he has probably already converted it to gold bars.

God was dropped by much of the Democratic Party machine years ago. They're simply now seeking to quietly memorialize it. They believe that America has drifted so far from its roots, and descended so deep into a moral quagmire, that the imposters who run the party are convinced that their God-denying arrogance will be accepted by the broader American public. The Democratic Party will ultimately fail miserably in this regard, and will deeply, deeply regret their hubris.

Most of those who are critical of God and any kind of connection between gov't. and religion don't know what the first Amendment really says. According to a literal meaning of the words in the first Amendment, It is perfectly legal for a school to invoke Christian prayer before a football game. Anyone who disagrees needs to ask the question: "Did Congress make a law giving preference to Christian prayers at football games?" Of course not. Over the years, the SCOTUS has taken it upon itself to change the meaning of the first Amendment and by doing so, have changed the Constitution's meaning from the bench. The first amendment is addressed to the Federal Gov't., not the states. In reality, the States were never prohibited from endorsing or discriminating against religion by the Constitution. That's what states rights and are all about. The states have their own constitutions that deal with this issue. Don't like the laws in Md.? Move to Va. and so on.

One of the many attacks on our country from the Religious Right is the claim that our country is a Christian Nation...not just that the majority of people are Christians, but that the country itself was founded by Christians, for Christians.

Those people who spread this lie are known as Christian Revisionists. The men responsible for building the foundation of the United States were men of The Enlightenment, not men of Christianity. They were Deists who did not believe the bible was true. They were Freethinkers who relied on their reason, not their faith.

If the U.S. was founded on the Christian religion, the Constitution would clearly say so--but it does not. Nowhere does the Constitution say: "The United States is a Christian Nation", or anything even close to that.

Did the democrats drop God from the party platform ?

NO... of course they didn't. They included God by mentioning faith and supporting faith. And I highly doubt God was offended in any way shape or form. Also I noticed Michelle Obama said God bless America after her speech last night.
