God’s Name Should Be Removed from Every Party’s Platform

I’m not sure what started the ruckus at the DNC about taking God’s name out of the party platform–and putting it back in–but I wish both the Dems, the Repubs, and any other political party in this country would go ahead and remove His name from their agendas entirely.

It’s not that I’m embarrassed about Him. I try my best to love God and believe that He has been made known to us through Jesus Christ. But I hate seeing His name thrown around in politics not because the people using His name care about His will but because they think that invoking the Divine will get them more votes.

(Equally disgusting: religious people fall for this tactic in every single election.)

Since every party wants to use God’s name in this way, I’d rather remove references to Him altogether than to keep His name in their platforms as a cheap and easy way to score political points with their constituents.

    Yes! They usually seem to tack on a “God bless America!” at the end before waving and leaving the stage. Ugh. I wish someone in the crowd would reply, “Which America??” (We’re not the only one.)
