Obama Put God and Jerusalem Back Into the Democratic Party Platform

The AP is reporting that after the Democratic Party's highly publicized removal of mentions of both God and Jerusalem from the official party platform, President Barack Obama intervened and insisted that both be worked back in. After the president's alleged intervention, the platform was changed to include this sentence: "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." The platform now also affirms a belief that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel ...

It saddens you to see so many people putting politics and political views ahead of Christ's way? I'll tell you what saddens me and tears my heart apart. Pastors who preach from the pulpit washed down and out messages. The 'oh let's just all get along' because that's what Christ wants. You bet He wants us to get along. That's just a no brainer. But what else does Christ expect from us?? Boldness for His Biblical principles, boldness to protect the life of the unborn, boldness to just say "no" to the sin others expect us to accept as 'normal'. My Pastor isn't afraid to be bold (but speaking in love) and say "NO" to to sin, that is backed by the inspired written Word, to those who keep saying "Oh come on, get with the program". You are either hot or cold, for or against Him, and you can't pick and choice what you feel like believing!

A reminder to ALL faiths: "It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionist, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ! For this very reason people of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and the right to worship here". - Patrick Henry (1736-1799) US Founding Fathers

And to the Arab American seen screaming "NO" three times, Jesus said He would be denied 3 times before the cock crowed!

A platform that doesn't want God in should be stayed away from!

Thisis beginning to look like a political stunt.. Take out God and Jerusalem so that Obama could make a big huge decision to PUT IT BACK.. and look like a hero.. His actions for the last 20 years speak louder than the one night of convention.. The Bible tells us how to live, but modern day politicians have thumbed their noses at it.. and made moral dcisions that do not agree with the Bible. But someone will look at one line in the 'laws' from the old testament and try to justify the 'anything goes' philosophy.

Maybe it's hard to stand up for an unborn child because there isn't much concern for what happens after they exit the womb. It's nice to be pro-life...it's just better to see that movement all the way through.

I don't know why one could be against those who claim to be for unborn kids when the next thing they inevitably utter is something about "welfare," "socialism," or "freeloader."

When you "get it," and stop fighting against those already in this world, you'll see how unfavorable the act of killing children really is.

It was for votes. Nothing more. What disturbed me was the voice vote was not 2/3 majority. It passed anyhow just like the Health Care Bill against the will of the people.
