Omitting God is right for Democrats

"Every nation divided against itself will be ruined, ...and will not stand." (Matthew 12:25)

Reading the Republican and Democratic Platforms was a revelation of how divided our country has become. The differences are stark in the contrast of the morality versus immorality of our two major parties.

The Democrat Convention lacked cohesiveness in their vote to re-insert into their platform — God(-given) (one time in 32 pages) and Jerusalem as capital of Israel. In fact the convention attendee votes were divided almost evenly and the frustration on Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's face was undeniable.

The Democrats should omit God altogether from their immoral humanist-socialist platform. There are several reasons, here are two major items: Pro-abortion and Gay marriage.

Without a doubt, God never declared abortion of the unborn (which He knits together in every woman's womb), nor has he ever created, decreed or encouraged any other pattern of marriage except between a man and a woman.

The Republicans proclaim the exact opposite in their platform: Pro-life and godly man-woman marriage. They historically remember "God" 3 times; "God-given" is used 9 times; "Israel" is used 11 times and "Jerusalem" 1 time as Israel's capital.

Rabbi Soloveichik, in his Republican Convention Invocation, talked to God: "We Americans unite faith and freedom in asserting that our liberties are Your gift, God, and not that of government, and that we are endowed with these rights by You, our Creator, and not by mortal man." Amen to that!

Rights

The word "rights" is used frequently in both party platforms. The Republican Platform uses "rights" in the context of the U.S. Constitution and its Amendments along with liberty and history, and with the God-given rights presented in the Declaration of Independence. They also picked the common-sense rights such as farmers and water rights, property rights and other similar issues all of which concern and benefit our country as a whole.

Unable to support Pres. Obama's fiscal policies, the Democrat Platform has to ignore the U.S. Constitution and push the unconstitutional "rights" of "special interest groups" to sustain their election campaign.

Examples: Besides women's rights, abortion and gay marriage rights, they support unions, illegal immigrants rights, Indian water rights and cultural rights, equal rights, civil rights, voting rights, equal citizenship and congressional rights (District of Columbia), etc. Not to mention that our taxpayer monies pay for all those unconstitutional rights and our nanny government also sends those monies under the guise of foreign aid to other nations in the name of "human rights."

Is it even possible to be a God-believing moderate and a Democrat anymore? No one can serve two masters. Can you believe in God and be loyal to the Democrat Party at the same time?

Former Alabama Representative Artur Davis once a solid democrat, left that party and moved to the Republican Party declaring the Democrat Party "no longer matches what I know about my country and its possibilities."

We also must note that though the Republican Platform acknowledges America as a "Nation under God," the question arises, is it a political ploy to draw the Tea Party evangelical-conservative votes? Or, are they serious about God's way.

America at a Crossroads

We hear a lot from experts and pundits expressing their belief that America stands at a decisive crossroads. Either we vote Pres. Obama out or we are lost as an exceptional nation... one fast losing her soul. Pres. Reagan expressed it well from words of old, "...we will be a nation gone asunder."

There is a large chasm separating the two major parties. Many citizens mourn and ache for the America they once knew. They also see that there is no longer any compromise to be attained across this widening chasm. We either go God's way or America will lose God's Blessings.

I and many other citizens are not certain that God can still smile on a nation where half the population no longer believes or abides in Him; where, as never before in our history, has the division been more obvious and everyone wants their own way without regards to God's way.

Pres. Ronald Reagan once stated, "I've said that we must be cautious in claiming God is on our side. I think the real question we must answer is, are we on His side?"

Decision time is now.
