Talking Points

July 2, 2006

A Democrat goes against the mantra of his party’s base.

Barack Obama says mentioning God in public does not violate the ‘separation of church and state.’ – that’s the subject of today’s talking points memo.

This past week Senator Barack Obama criticized his own party for failing to acknowledge the power of faith in the lives of the American people. 

He said: “Not every mention of God in public violates the separation of church and state…”

He’s really going to be in trouble with that statement.

He said that “it is doubtful that kids reciting the Pledge of Allegiance feel oppressed or brain washed  when they say ‘Under God.’”

Didn’t know Democrats still allowed them to say that.

Obama urged Democrats to reach out to Evangelicals also.   He warned that there is nothing more transparent than in authentic expressions of faith, such as the politician who shows up in a black church around election time, and claps (off rhythm) to the Gospel Choir.

You’ve seen Al Gore to that.

Bill Clinton recently praised Evangelicals, and Howard Dean has been running around  flapping his gums about faith and values.

However, Obama is wrong about something.  Democrats do acknowledge people of faith – right before they trash them.

All the Democrat talk of faith and courting Evangelicals, rings hollow because elected Democrats by-and-large despise people of faith because they are from ‘The South.’ (said with a southern accent)

Now if you examine the values of people of faith  have and believe in, and then notice who it is who stands in opposition to them, you’re going to find Liberal Democrats standing right there.  And that extends beyond the religious faith.

Democrats have no faith in our military, our private sector, capitalism, strong national defense or American exceptionalism.

The only faith Democrats have is faith in their own political power. 

And thankfully the rest of us don’t share that faith in them, and never will.

And that’s the memo
