This is blog of quotes from Democrat writers showing their thoughts about God and the Bible. These quotes show what the Democrat Party stands for, and show without any shadow of doubt that the Democrat leadership hates God, the Bible, Bible-believing Christians, and Christian morals.
Why Americans Hate Democrats---Dialogue; The unteachable ignorance of the red states. By Jane Smiley; Updated Thursday, Nov. 4, 2004, at 3:24 PM PT
The election results reflect the decision of the right wing to cultivate and exploit ignorance in the citizenry.The error that progressives have consistently committed over the years is to underestimate the vitality of ignorance in America. Listen to what the red state citizens say about themselves, the songs they write, and the sermons they flock to. They know who they are---they are full of original sin and they have a taste for violence. The blue state citizens make the Rousseauvian mistake of thinking humans are essentially good, and so they never realize when they are about to be slugged from behind.
Here is how ignorance works: First, they put the fear of God into you---if you don't believe in the literal word of the Bible, you will burn in hell. Of course, the literal word of the Bible is tremendously contradictory, and so you must abdicate all critical thinking, and accept a simple but logical system of belief that is dangerous to question. A corollary to this point is that they make sure you understand that Satan resides in the toils and snares of complex thought and so it is best not try it.
Next, they tell you that you are the best of a bad lot (humans, that is) and that as bad as you are, if you stick with them, you are among the chosen. This is flattering and reassuring, and also encourages you to imagine the terrible fates of those you envy and resent. American politicians ALWAYS operate by a similar sort of flattery, and so Americans are never induced to question themselves. That's what happened to Jimmy Carter---he asked Americans to take responsibility for their profligate ways, and promptly lost to Ronald Reagan, who told them once again that they could do anything they wanted. The history of the last four years shows that red state types, above all, do not want to be told what to do---they prefer to be ignorant. As a result, they are virtually unteachable. (source...)
Why Americans Hate Democrats---A Dialogue; The party's message is low risk, low reward. By Tom Tomorrow; Updated Thursday, Nov. 4, 2004, at 4:06 PM PT
Many of the issues for which Democrats stand are highly divisive---stem-cell research, gay rights, abortion---and in their attempts to finesse that divisiveness, they often seem to stand for nothing at all. In their eagerness to appear reasonable and moderate---and to avoid at all costs being tarred with the dread epithet "liberal"---they become the enablers, the loyal opposition seeking common ground (even as the opposition is doing its best to destroy them and scorch the very earth where they once stood). Gosh, they say, maybe we should go to war in Iraq for no apparent reason, and maybe gay people don't deserve full and equal rights. And so on and so forth.
Republicans don't have this problem. Republicans are perfectly comfortable with what they are and what they stand for ("pure evil," the provocateur in me is compelled to suggest). They're the ones who hope to stack the judiciary with right-wing nut cases and eventually repeal Roe v. Wade. They're the ones who run up sky-high deficits in order to provide tax breaks for the rich. They're the ones with the aggressive facts-be-damned policy of pre-emptive warfare. They're the ones who exploit antigay bigotry and antiscience superstition and wrap the whole package up with a neat little red-white-and-blue bow and say, "This is what real Americans believe."
They may try to sugarcoat some of it, but they don't apologize for any of it.
But the most important advantage Republicans have may be their base of support among Christian evangelicals. The task of getting out the vote is made much easier when you have local institutions in place through which to actually reach the vote. All politics are local, and all organizing is ultimately community-based---neighbors talking to neighbors within the course of their day-to-day lives. Online organizing can supplement this effort but simply can't replace it.
Democrats used to have a similar base---it was called organized labor, and the community-based institutional structure it provided gave them a far more effective way to reach their own voters than, say, parachuting in from out of town for a weekend of door-to-door canvassing. Labor unions made a remarkable push during this election, but they just don't have the heft anymore to help the Democrats over the top. (source...)
[So, this Democrat admits that his party is pro-baby murder, pro-sodomy, pro-socialism, and that that is the reason it has no support among evangelical Christians. He also admits that Democrats are liberals, even though they are ashamed to admit it. Democrat politicans know that in order to be elected they must deceive Americans into thinking they are the exact opposite of what they are.]
