You’ve been reading that God’s name was removed from the Democratic National Committee platform.
This is how the 2008 platform read in its reference to God:
“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.”
In the 2012 platform “God-given” has been removed. The paragraph reads as follows:
“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.”
Here’s what a lot of people do not understand. There is no such thing as religious neutrality. The rejection of the true God means that a new god replaces Him. In the case of the Democrats (and some Republicans) government is the new God. Rousas J. Rushdoony makes this point in his book Foundation of Social Order:
When the State claims religious neutrality, it is either self-deception or a deception of the people, and it merely means a neutrality towards its old faith in order to prepare the way for the establishment of the new faith.
The State is no less a religious organization than the church, and in some societies more so. In Christian society, church and State are both religious orders, the church as a ministry of grace and the State as a ministry of justice.
In pagan society, the State takes priority as the religious order: the temple or the shrine then become aspects of the state’s life and function. Religion can no more be abstracted from the State than from the church. Churches and States may forsake a religion and abandon their creed, but only in order to adopt a new one.
This is exactly what the Democrats have done. Not to let the Republicans off the hook, but too many of them give lip service to the true God while worshiping at the altar of their new god — the Messianic State.
The statement in a DNC video that “The Government is the only thing we all belong to” pretty much sums up the creed of the Democrat Party. I should add, however, that striking at the image of God by promoting abortion on demand and redefining marriage are also indicators that the Democrats have become their own God.
