    If one can refer. of course, to any gains by the Democrats as an advance…

    Perhaps a better choice of words would be the one Confederate General Wise, chased by Union General Cox, used referring to his retreat a 'retrograde movement' of his troops.

    The Democrats have instituted a retrograde movement for society.



    Let’s check:

    1. “…in San Francisco, the Democratic National Committee adopted a resolution on August 24 hailing the "religiously unaffiliated" as the "largest religious group within the Democratic Party, growing from 19% in 2007 to one in three today.”

    That’s great news for those Democrats who would love to replace worship of God with worship of the state."
    Democrats ready to replace worship of God with worship of the state


    Democrats....bragging that they have more atheists than other parties.



    2. The DNC resolution declares “that morals, values, and patriotism are not unique to any particular religion, and are not necessarily reliant on having a religious worldview at all.”

    Really? So, where did American morals and values come from? The DNC might want to try to identify areas of the world not influenced by Christianity or Judaism that have nonetheless embraced the sanctity of life, individual rights, free markets, self-government and women’s rights.



    3. The Declaration of Independence credits God as the source of justice, stating that, “all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” … as John Adams wrote, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” That’s because the Constitution’s design for maximum human liberty works only when the people have a moral compass beyond their own appetites. Absent that, we can rationalize anything.

    4. “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports,” George Washington wrote in his Farewell Address. “And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion.” Democrats Put Their Faith in the Faithless





    In nearly every doctrine, point for point, the Democrat Party mirrors their predecessors, the Bolsheviks.
    And more and more, we see them ready to admit it:

    "Just because any religious idea, any idea of any god at all, any flirtation even with a god, is the most inexpressible foulness, particularly tolerantly (and often even favourably) accepted by the democratic bourgeoisie—for that very reason it is the most dangerous foulness, the most shameful “infection.” A million physicalsins, dirty tricks, acts of violence and infections are much more easily discovered by the crowd, and therefore are much less dangerous, than the nubile, spiritual idea of god, dressed up in the most attractive “ideological” costumes." Letter from Lenin to Maxim Gorky, Written on November 13 or 14, 1913 Lenin 55. TO MAXIM GORKY

    One cannot call oneself an American and subscribe to the atheism of the Democrat Party. Respect for God is part of the recipe of Americanism. It is baked into the banquet.



    5. Our founding documents presuppose God, and rights derived therefrom.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

    These words from the Declaration precede the Constitution, which was designed to instruct government on the practices and procedures to put into effect those 55 words.




    There is no way to separate “God” and one's national association with America.

    "First, I want to thank God for making me an American..."

    Hi PoliticalChic, hope you are well even as you post thread after thread, many from religious fanatics who hardly ever preach the 'Sermon on the Mount' but admire and vote for a president who cages and hurts God's children in need. Baffles me, I gotta admit.

    But Onenewsnow is just another biased religious (?) oriented 501c3, hiding from taxes and preaching hate gets old. I wonder what would their Christ would think of them.

    OneNewsNow - Media Bias/Fact Check

    Although OneNewsNow is directly owned and operated by a hate group, their news reporting is simply biased and misleading.

    Overall, we rate OneNewsNow strongly Right Biased based on story selection that always favors the right. We also rate them Mixed for factual reporting due to misleading headlines that do not match the story and a very poor record with support for the consensus of science. (D.

    Hi, middy


    Always good to see you here.....you have so very much to learn.


    1. "religious fanatics "
    See that....your bias is showing.
    The only fanatics are those who subscribe to the political views of the Left, those who slaughtered over 100 million men, women and children in pursuit of their endeavors.




    2. Since you bring up Presidents....

    1. Obama told illegal aliens to go and vote, saying "When you vote, you're a citizen yourself."


    2. After promising that Iran would never get nuclear weapons, Obama guaranteed them nukes.

    October 7 2008, in the second presidential debate: "We cannot allow Iran to get a nuclear weapon. It would be a game-changer in the region. Not only would it threaten Israel, our strongest ally in the region and one of our strongest allies in the world, but it would also create a possibility of nuclear weapons falling into the hands of terrorists. And so it's unacceptable. And I will do everything that's required to prevent it. And we will never take military options off the table"


    The first is an attack on America, the second, on all of Western Civilization.


    3. I know you tried as hard as you could to disparage the OP that brought you scurrying over.....you failed to find a single error therein.

    Stay tuned....I have several more posts for this thread.....but keep the antacids handy.

    6. Democrat racist Woodrow Wilson…is that redundant?....Abhorred the idea that God is above government, and that there are any unalienable rights so awarded.....he made the very opposite his doctrine, and the Democrats continue the same agenda:

    That view is denied by Democrats/Progressives/Liberals:
    “Woodrow Wilson and the Rejection of the Founders’ Principles”
    Woodrow Wilson wrote, “If you want to understand the real Declaration of Independence, do not repeat the preface.” Equality, natural rights, consent of the governed— these are not the fundamental principles that inform the purpose of government."

    https://online.hillsdale.edu/document.doc?id=313


    Hence….their pride that more Democrats eschew religion.




    7. The irony is that they bend the neck and the knee to the god that they call ‘the state.’ Rather than the Creator, it is the state, they say, that award subjects…er, citizens, their ‘rights.’

    "It is a great irony of communism that those who did not believe in God believed that godlike knowledge could be concentrated at a central point. It was believed that government could be omnipotent and omniscient. And in order to justify the idea that all lives should be determined by a single plan, the concomitant tendency of communist regimes was to deify the leader- whether Lenin, Stalin, Mao, or Kim Il-sung."

    8. It is beyond puzzlement that the Democrats are proud that their party is the party of atheism. One would imagine that they’d be embarrassed at their ties to slavery, and, more lately, infanticide.



    “Based on concepts enshrined in British Common Law, which the great English jurist William Blackstone traced to the Bible, Christians led the campaign to end the slave trade. Across the world, Christians created hospitals and clinics. They criminalized infanticide, child marriage, child and spousal abuse, gladiatorial combat, death games and immolation of widows, to name a few reforms. Some also behaved very badly, justifying their inhumanity by misusing the Bible.

    The American Revolution led to a hunger for self-governance that rocked the world. It’s not for nothing that brave Chinese dissident students erected a model of the Statue of Liberty in Tiananmen Square.

    The DNC’s resolution calls for "rational public policy based on sound science and universal humanistic values." Science is, indeed, marvelous.” Democrats Put Their Faith in the Faithless



    Echoing the French Revolution, the current Democrat Party strives to replace religion and morality with science and reason….and every historian knows how that worked out for France.

    Are there any who doubt that the current Democrat Party is the re-constituted Bolshevik one???



    9.What one hears in the Democrat anti-religion screed is the echo of the French Revolution, and the substitution of reason and science for religion and morality. Lots to blame on Rousseau….Progressivism, Liberalism, attacks on religion, the slaughter of millions by the Bolsheviks, the Democrat Party, not to mention the 600,000 French dead in their revolution.

    Let’s not forget the result:

    a. " If the French revolution was the end of monarchy and aristocratic privilege and the emergence of the common man and democratic rights, it was also the beginnings of modern totalitarian government and large-scale executions of "enemies of the People" by impersonal government entities (Robespierre's "Committee of Public Safety").
    This legacy would not reach its fullest bloom until the tragic arrival of the German Nazis and Soviet and Chinese communists of the 20th century. Jean-Jacques Rousseau, the precursor of the modern pseudo-democrats such as Stalin and Hitler and the "people's democracies."
    French Revolution - Robespierre and the Legacy of the Reign of Terror


    b. Bolsheviks claimed descent: “Historians of the French Revolution, which the Russians saw as a model for their own…”
    Bolshevik Festivals, 1917–1920



    How could Democrat voters not know this???

    10. Before the Democrats embrace atheism as their new-found faith, they might want to take a closer look at the surveys.



    Some polls show that up to 25 percent now choose “atheist, agnostic or ‘nothing in particular’” when asked about religious affiliation. However, this may be quite misleading. The Pew Research Center’s latest figures show that only 3 percent of the U.S. population identifies as atheist, notes Glenn Stanton, a researcher at Focus on the Family, in The Federalist.
    “Yes, there has been a sizable increase here over the last decade, but that’s up from only 1.6 percent of all adults,” he writes.


    People who were nominal Christians in mainline denominations now describe themselves as unaffiliated, or “nones.” Meanwhile, evangelical churches are growing rapidly.


    “Robust Christianity is not shrinking, not even among young adults,” Mr. Stanton writes. “It is holding quite firm and even growing in many important ways. It is increasingly liberalized, orthodoxy-denying, and lukewarm faith that’s tanking as if it has a mill stone around its neck.”


    That’s something to think about when the Democrats celebrate unbelief in their midst or trot out pagan customs masquerading as Christian tolerance.
    Democrats Put Their Faith in the Faithless

    For a moment there I thought you were talking about Obama, who paid lip service to the integrity of national sovereignty and citizenship, while encouraging the on-going lawlessness at our southern border, including the vile atrocities of human-trafficking. I suggest you disabuse yourself of the big lie that the current administration cages and hurts children. That way the abject evil of open borders might dawn on you.

    From the looks of things, it would appear that you operate under the silly notion that Jesus Christ is a Marxist, but, of course, your moralizing is nothing more than a cynical smile and a shoeshine given that your real motive is the destruction of America.

    I didn't read the DNC advocating atheism but rather recognizing atheists, agnostics, and the religiously unaffiliated as groups that shouldn't be discriminated against or excluded from society. They were just reiterating their 'big tent' philosophy, in contrast to the GOP.

    To say atheists, agnostics, and the religiously unaffiliated can't be moral and ethical is the same as saying only Christians can be moral and ethical.
