No sign of God in Democratic Party Platform

by Doug Lawrence

Listening to the radio as I was driving around, I happened to tune in a live interview with the Reverend Jessie Jackson, live from Charlotte, at the DNC.

The interviewer asked the Reverend what he thought about the fact that the Democrats had just officially removed all references to God and/or the Creator from their platform documents.

Since the Reverend Jackson is allegedly a man of God, and he regularly teams up with Chicago’s Father Michael Pflegger on a number of high profile local projects, I expected him to do something like announce his departure from the Democratic Party … since of course … a political party which officially rejects God would bear much too close of a resemblance to the fallen angel who did pretty much the same thing, a long, long time ago.

But no. The Reverend said nothing of the kind. He simply stuck to the official party line … like any good Democrat … and went on speaking about various “hot button” political issues … as though nothing at all had changed.

It obviously never occurred to the Reverend that if God wanted his holy name to stay in the party platform, no power on earth or in heaven could have prevented it. So it was God who saw to it that his name was removed from the Democratic Party Platform. Not the other way around.

At least that way, people will know exactly for whom and for what they are voting.

Behold I set forth in your sight this day a blessing and a curse: A blessing, if you obey the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you this day: A curse, if you obey not the commandments of the Lord your God, but revolt from the way which now I show you, and walk after strange gods which you know not. (Deuteronomy 11:26-28)
