To the editor:
Believe me when I say that it would be quite a stretch to even suggest that the National Democratic Party bears any resemblance to the Democratic Party of our parents and grandparents.
In 1960, I voted for John Kennedy, who was considered God-fearing pro-life, and who believed in massive tax cuts and a strong defense that employed preemptive action when necessary. He was also a believer that marriage is the union of one man and one woman and clearly urged every citizen to do whatever he or she could do for the country rather than the other way around.
However, as I watched the first night of the Democratic Convention, I was simply flabbergasted to see that the platform, for the first time in its history, included no mention of God and endorsed the marriage of two men or that of two women. Initially, I simply thought that these inclusions had simply been inserted under the cloak of darkness, perhaps done so by a small number of radical Progressive fanatics. But, to my surprise I was wrong. In fact, in an attempt to strike out the “No God” inclusion the moderator failed on three occasions to obtain the necessary majority to do so.
Consequently, in a state of perplexity he simply decided to rule in favor of discarding it. Following that, many rose and loudly booed the decision. That was the first time in my lifetime that I had ever experienced a crowd of that size rise up and so strongly and unequivocally oppose simply the mention of the word “God” at such a public event. Perhaps such may have occurred in China, North Korea or the late USSR, but never in the U.S.! No, this new Democratic Party has been fundamentally transformed. It has finally been infiltrated by a significant number who have changed their political ideologies from “Liberal” to “Modern Progressives.”
Many of these people truly believe that our inalienable rights come from the government rather than from God. They believe that the Constitution is an impediment to progress. They are the intellectual elites of our society who simply know more than the rest of us and, as such, should be the ones to tell us how to live.
It’s a shame though that many of their values to not reflect those of our Creator nor of our Constitution.
