I don’t understand…
Why the Democratic leadership removed “God” from their platform (I heard their “reasons” and don’t agree with the rationale),
Why there were so many on the floor of the convention who were so upset when God was reinserted back into the platform,
How anyone can affirm a national platform that is staunchly pro-abortion,
How same sex marriage can be touted as a right by national leaders and the judiciary?
I have a problem that a group desiring to lead the nation would even think of… much less actually carry out… removing God from their platform. That is a HUGE statement of what the real leadership believes and desires. And don’t think for one minute THE leader of that group didn’t sign off on it.
I have a problem with abortion (Just because something is legal does NOT make it right). Therefore I refuse to support a platform that affirms and promotes abortion.
I have a problem with same sex marriage and I refuse to support a platform that affirms and promotes it.
Maybe I do understand. Maybe we are experiencing the continuation of Romans 1:21 ff…
Although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles. 24 Therefore God gave them up… 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen. 28 Since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. 29 They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God’s decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.
