The Democratic platform is the most liberal ever. The gay rights advocates got a nod. The women’s rights advocates got a nod, but God got a split decision. I watched the DNC take a verbal vote on whether God should be included in their platform and it was something jarringly, disturbing to hear so many in the hall say No to the addition. This morning it was interesting to see all the talking heads explain why there was an omission in the first place. A couple of weeks ago I was part of a conference call in which a prominant black minister outlined how he would be doing outreach to black and Hispanic ministers in an effort to recruit them into the Romney camp. At the time I saw this as a quixotic effort, but yesterday made me wonder is there room in this party for believers? Share your thoughts.
I am a Democrat, but make no mistake I Believe in God
