Dems Drop ‘God’ From Platform

This isn’t shocking, or surprising, but is nonetheless noteworthy (per CBN’s David Brody):

Guess what? God’s name has been removed from the Democratic National Committee platform.

This is the paragraph that was in the 2008 platform:

“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.”

Now the words “God-given” have been removed. The paragraph has been restructured to say this:

“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.”

The best part of the article:

The Brody File has calls into DNC to explain why God’s name has been dropped from the platform. Some critics will suggest that when you have planks in your platform that support abortion rights and gay marriage then it’s no wonder that God’s name would be dropped as well.

CMI Rebuts Nye

Creation Ministries International has produced a video in response to Bill Nye’s somewhat-incoherent, anti-creationist blubbering. Something that struck me about Nye’s video is how unprepared he seems, as though he just plunked himself down in front of a camera on the spur of the moment without any prior thought as to what he was going to say. Then again, I’d think that someone who calls himself “The Science Guy” and has lots of TV experience should be able to rattle off an informed little speech anytime, but I guess not—perhaps because his position is indefensible?
