Democrats are now officially the party of the nonbelievers. Merriam-Webster defines a nonbeliever as “especially an atheist.”
How did this happen?
Karl Marx wrote in Critique of Hegel’s Philosophy of Right:
Religious distress is at the same time the expression of real distress and the protest against real distress. Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, just as it is the spirit of a spiritless situation. It is the opium of the people. The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is required for their real happiness. The demand to give up the illusion about its condition is the demand to give up a condition which needs illusions.
Democrats Come Full Circle on Going Godless
Remember that during the 2012 Democratic National Convention delegates opposed adding language on God and Israel’s capital to their platform. Watch this Fox News report:
On January 30, 2019 The Epoch Times reported that a key House of Representatives committee has voted to remove the phrase “so help you God” in an oath used in its proceedings. Watch:
In a press release the Secular Coalition for America notes:
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) this past Saturday embraced American nonbelievers for the first time, adopting a resolution that recognizes their contributions to society and to the Democratic Party.
This move by the DNC, which was unanimous absent one abstention, demonstrates that they are living up to the big-tent inclusive values they regularly espouse, though it also shows they recognize the value of courting the largest, fastest growing religious demographic in the nation. It was first passed in the DNC’s Resolutions Committee on Thursday [August 26, 2019]. [Emphasis added]
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.
The Democratic Party is no longer the party of Thomas Jefferson. It is now the party of Karl Marx.
Thomas Jefferson the founder of the Democratic Party wrote:
“Under the law of nature [God], all men are born free, every one comes into the world with a right to his own person, which includes the liberty of moving and using it at his own will. This is what is called personal liberty, and is given him by the author of nature [God], because necessary for his own sustenance.”
The Democratic Party may have just signed its own death warrant.
According to Pew Research Center’s data on Religion & Public Life the five largest religious groups that are Democrat/lean Democrat are:
- Historically Black Protestant – 80%
- Buddhist – 69%
- Jewish – 64%
- Muslim – 62%
- Hindu – 61%
Affiliated (religious “nones”) are 54%.
The denial of God, in order to garner votes and create a Socialist/Marxist state, is now the official policy of the Democratic National Committee. What is most interesting is that Muslims (62% of Democrat/lean Democrat) can never accept religious “nones.”
You can’t make this stuff up. We have truly entered the Democratic theatre of the absurd.
