Leaders of the Democratic Party openly displayed their disgust for people of faith by elevating anti-Semites and omitting references to God.
“At the #DemocraticNationalConvention , LGBT Caucus purposely leaves out the words, ‘under God’ from the Pledge of Allegiance. Watch. This now makes twice that two key constituencies of the Democratic Party have done this,” David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network tweeted.
The Muslim Delegates Assembly moderator led a virtual audience through the Pledge of Allegiance on the second day of the Democratic National Convention. However, he thumbed his at the Almighty and people of faith with an unmistakable omission.
“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all,” he said and skipped “under God.”
The mere mention of God has been openly targeted by left-wing organizations that are widely considered the base of the Democratic Party. Liberal organizations such as the anti-Christian Freedom From Religion Foundation argue that praising God is both racist and exclusionary. That particular outfit threatened to file a civil lawsuit against a Pennsylvania school in 2019. The anti-Christian group pressured the school district into barring a principal from saying “God Bless America.” This is the dark vision the Democratic Party has for all Americans in the unlikely event that the likes of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris take over the White House.
In 2012, the Democratic National Committee moved to erase any mention of God from its platform. Politicians running in communities of faith pushed to have references included. When God was mentioned at the 2012 convention, the crowd booed. It appears the 2020 narrative is not only to eradicate faith but to demonstrate open hostility toward Christians and Jews.
“He’s going to do things that nobody ever, would ever think even possible because he’s following the radical left agenda: Take away your guns, destroy your Second Amendment, no religion, no anything, hurt the Bible, hurt God. He’s against God,” President Donald Trump reportedly said about Joe Biden.
Replacing the Evangelical prayer gatherings of President Trump will be the inclusion bigots such as ousted Women’s March co-founder Tamika Mallory. Convention leaders put her back in the spotlight despite the fact she was booted by Women’s March organizers for her anti-Semitism. Mallory attended Nation of Islam gatherings led by Louis Farrakhan, who has called the Jewish community “satanic” and the “enemy.” The Democratic National Conventions positioned Mallory as a prominent voice in its Black Caucus after referring to Farrakhan as the ”GOAT.” Her position cannot bode well for African-American Christians, Jews, and other people of faith.
By contrast, President Trump recently helped broker a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. The president applauded both sides and American Christians for ushering in the first major Middle East peace agreement since the 1990s.
“It’s an incredible thing for Israel. It’s incredible for the evangelicals, by the way,” Trump said. “The evangelicals love Israel. Love Israel.”
