WAS GOD KEPT OUT OF PRESIDENT OBAMA'S CORONATION?
We ALL know that President Obama's faith has often been challenged by those who declare they fully understand Christian values. His first challenge came with his admitted joining a Church for primarily 'political' reasons as he explained in his book, "Dreams of My Father!" Also, for managing to be a 20-year member of a Church who's pastor, he declares, NEVER heard call for God to Damn America... and not Bless her!
Then we ALL saw the Democratic National Convention where any mention of GOD was removed from it's Platform! For it took one Democrat representative, Methodist Preacher and former Governor Ted Strictland, along with FOX News Network to raise concerns that God had been removed from their party! Gov Strictland stood before the delegates to add back into the platform that "Our faith and belief in God is central to the American story and it forms the values we've expressed in our party's platform!" To re-institute a such provision, the DNC members needed a 2/3rds "AYE" vote from it's delegates. Such "voice" vote was needed THREE times before it was passed! A voice meter device would later show the "YES" vote had no where near the 2/3rds support of the Democrat representatives, but the Political fallout would have been so great, they said it "passed" anyway!
So NOW we have our President calling upon Ms. Myrlie Evers-Williams to give the invocation at President Obama inauguration! Ms. Williams, not even an ordained minister, but a "lay-woman!" She is the widow of civil rights leader Medgar Evers, who was killed by a white supremacist group in 1963. One would not know she was giving a prayer to God though... for God was never mentioned until ONE TIME at the very end when she referenced what our grandmothers may have taught us what He wanted us to be? She even had the intended exclusion of leaving God out in a sentence of our Pledge of Allegiance by saying, "one nation, ....... indivisible, with liberty and justice for all!" No "under God!"
So, are Democrats continuing to throw the Christian God OUT of our country? Is it becoming more and more difficult for Christians to remain in this NEW "No God Zone" of a Democrat Party? Time will see, but normally the best way of knowing what direction a group will take tomorrow is the path they have chosen to get where they are today! Old Salt
