Democrats Officially Become Party of The Godless :: By Bill Wilson

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) passed a resolution adopting the “religiously unaffiliated” as the largest religious group within the Democratic Party. In a pointed underscore of the dying Church in America, the DNC resolution opened with the following statement:

“WHEREAS, the religiously unaffiliated demographic has tripled in the last two decades, now representing 25% of the overall American population and 35% of those under the age of 30; WHEREAS, religiously unaffiliated Americans overwhelmingly share the Democratic Party’s values, with 70% voting for Democrats in 2018, 80% supporting same-sex marriage, and 61% saying immigrants make American society stronger; and…

“WHEREAS, the religiously unaffiliated demographic represents the largest religious group within the Democratic Party, growing from 19% in 2007 to one in three today; and WHEREAS, the nonreligious have often been subjected to unfair bias and exclusion in American society, particularly in the areas of politics and policymaking where assumptions of religiosity have long predominated; and…

“WHEREAS, those most loudly claiming that morals, values, and patriotism must be defined by their particular religious views have used those religious views, with misplaced claims of “religious liberty,” to justify public policy that has threatened the civil rights and liberties of many Americans, including but not limited to the LGBT community, women, and ethnic and religious/nonreligious minorities; and…

“WHEREAS, the Democratic Party is an inclusive organization that recognizes that morals, values, and patriotism are not unique to any particular religion, and are not necessarily reliant on having a religious worldview at all; and WHEREAS, nonreligious Americans made up 17% of the electorate in 2018 and have the potential to deliver millions more votes for Democrats in 2020 with targeted outreach to further increase turnout of nonreligious voters; and…

“WHEREAS, a record number of openly nonreligious candidates are running for public office; NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE recognizes:

“1. The value, ethical soundness, and importance of the religiously unaffiliated demographic, a group of Americans who contribute in innumerable ways to the arts, sciences, medicine, business, law, the military, their communities, the success of the Party and prosperity of the Nation; and 2. That religiously unaffiliated Americans are a group that, as much as any other, advocates for rational public policy based on sound science and universal humanistic values and should be represented, included, and heard by the Party.”

There is so much wrong with this Resolution. Where do morals come from, certainly not the immoral? The resolution condemns the religiously affiliated for trampling the rights of almost everyone. In other words, if you are religiously affiliated, you are likely a bigot, a misogynist, a homophobe, a racist or worse. See where this is headed?

For the Democratic Party and for America, this is historic. Democratic leadership has chosen to embrace those who are “not reliant on a religious worldview at all” at the expense of those whose religious beliefs define their “morals, values and patriotism.” The DNC states that those who are nonreligious “overwhelmingly share the Democratic Party’s values.” While not denying God, the party is embracing the godless as more moral and sound than believers. The DNC is admitting that godless values are Democrat’s values.

Christians who would vote for Democrats, be forewarned: “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap” (Galatians 6:7).
