The insertion of the phrase, “God-given rights” into the DNC platform yesterday was unnecessary. The gesture reinforces the unconstitutional ceding of political power to the Christian churches. The Teavangelists have allowed the religious right to control large facets of our national policies. The DNC had the option to terminate that process, quietly and segmentally. Instead, they caved in to the Christians. We will regret this.
Add to the mix, NBC’s decision that football was of greater importance than is the DNC. Any wonder why the RNC/teavangelists can play to the lowest common denominator.
