Why Does The Democratic Party Disdain God?
- Why Does The Democratic Party Disdain God?

The Democrat convention got off to a curious and raucous start as the “preacher” who led the invocation was heckled in the middle of that prayer. Todd Starnes notes, “the jeers turned into chants for Bernie Sanders, “Bernie, Bernie…I was at their convention in 2012 — when they not only booed God — but they tried to vote the Almighty out of their party platform.”
Whether you agreed with the prayer or not – and I do not agree with the con-tent of her prayer – how disrespectful can you be, and not just to the “preacher” but above all disrespectful to the Lord God. It demonstrates again that there is no fear of God in their hearts.
Looking at that Democrat Platform approved by the delegates to their con-vention in Philadelphia shows how depraved those hearts are which do not fear God. Under the title “Guaranteeing Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Trans-gender Rights” (By the way we need to understand that these are religious statements, they reveal a belief system based upon a set of presuppositions. I need to mention this because the modern propaganda campaign would have us believe these are something other than a religious belief system.)
Their platform states, “We support a progressive vision of religious freedom that respects pluralism and rejects the misuse of religion to discriminate. … We will also promote LGBT human rights and ensure America’s foreign policy is inclusive of LGBT people around the world.”
So I understand what they are saying in that party platform by ‘progressive vision’ is they want religion to shift away from its historic moorings, from its past standards of right and wrong. They want religion to respect pluralism – that is never dare critique any of the truth claims of any belief system. They demand that all religions adopt their religion of total relativism and believe that there is nothing absolute, no standard of right or wrong. So they lie, because they claim they stand for religious freedom, but only if you believe what they believe. Then they assert that it is a misuse of religion to discriminate. This word discriminate has come under sustained assault in our day. So let’s look at what our Founders knew this word meant.
