(The Daily Dolt)   The Democrats remove the word "God" from their official platform. Conservatives react with nuance and tolerance. Just kidding, they're already saying the heathen Dems are waging a "War on God"   (thedailydolt.com) divider line 22

I'm going to go with a review of what the Democrats, and the GOP, each have done to further the cause of Freedom of Religion....

Dems: Do what ya want. Just don't be a dick about it.
GOP: You WILL be Evangelical Christian or nothing.

Hmmm. Tough choice.

The War on God started when Dems fought for equal rights for women, gays, and minorities. God seems to hate those people.

mr_a: OTOH, that hurricane idea was the sort of thing I would do if I were God.


If I were God there would be smiting. Lots and lots of smiting.

I don't know why the talibanicals are always so worried about atheists starting a "war on god". Even if I wanted to, I don't even know how to lead a war against someone's imagination.

The conservitards must be afraid God might lose.


Can God make a liberal army so powerful that even He can't defeat it?

"God" isn't the only word that the Dems are staying away from.....also not heard about yet are: "marriage penalties", "hefty surtax for small businesses" and "tax cuts to people who don't pay taxes".

magusdevil: Dusk-You-n-Me: [mediamatters.org image 300x300]

This is important or whatever.

Because Exodus 20:7.


"Me dammit, I said DON'T take my name in vain. DON'T: DO. NOT. *sigh*

Son, maybe I need you to reinforce the message. Tell them not to be so in-your-face. If people want the truth, if they're ready for it, they'll come to it. Being pushy about it will only make people resent the message and the messenger."

magusdevil: Also Matthew 6:7


*GOP convention*

"Me dammit."

NateGrey: Pretty sure I heard "God Bless America" a few times.

Didnt they end the night on a prayer?


Pretty sure every speaker said "God bless America" or some such, and yes they did end with a benediction.

It's almost as if they view worship as a personal matter, that the majority of them proudly and happily embrace, but that the party doesn't see fit to foist on anyone through their platform or through their governing.

How terrible.

"We need a government that stands up for the hopes, values, and interests of working people, and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their God-given potential."

to

"We gather to reclaim the basic bargain that built the largest middle class and the most prosperous nation on Earth - the simple principle that in America, hard work should pay off, responsibility should be rewarded, and each one of us should be able to go as far as our talent and drive take us."

Sure, referencing God in political speeches is silly (WTF does "God Bless America" even mean?) but people love it and right before the election isn't the time or place to stir that shiat up.

Anyway, all I know is I want to smack the smarmy douche who wrote TFA. He sounds like a real twat with an over-inflated sense of how funny he is.

Big tent Dems, bring em all in under the big tent.

Just because "God" isn't in their platform, maybe a Jewish person wrote G-d. Or they wanted to be open to Muslims. Or pagans. Or Wiccans. Or his noodley appendages might bless everyone.

OR maybe we are just ok with who we are and where we are going that we don't need to invoke the name, just follow some good practices of treating everyone nicely. (which is what Jesus said, anyway)
