The Democratic National Convention this week is illustrating what all Marxist-like societies in history have learned the hard way: There can be no brotherhood of man without the Fatherhood of God.
For anyone who pays attention to the political landscape in America, this rule of thumb points to one basic difference between the two imperfect major political parties: One generally recognizes our nation's dependence on God; the other does not. This highly influences their stances on all the major issues. The Democrat convention this week continues to reinforce — with every featured speaker — this philosophical difference.
This doesn't mean all Republicans are theists and all Democrats are atheists. Nor does it mean God chooses a political party to endorse (as if He creates a quasi-church in the temporal political arena). What it does mean is that each party sees the world radically differently — one through the lens of atheism and the other, through the lens of theism.
This has deep ramifications. A theistic worldview means there is objective truth about the world and human nature — realities which can be understood and to which we must conform. An atheistic worldview anoints each individual his own god — as one who creates his own reality as he sees fit. Encapsulating this philosophy, former Supreme Court justice Anthony Kennedy wrote in his infamous Planned Parenthood v. Casey opinion: "At the heart of liberty is the right to define one's own concept of existence, of meaning, of the universe and of the mystery of human life."
If the reader at this point is asking, "Whose God should a party endorse, since we are all equal and there are many religions?" chances are he votes Democrat. It is a question that illustrates the equality of man taking precedence over the sovereignty of God. Of course, there are exceptions to this rule, but the point is the rule exists and is becoming sharper and clearer with each election cycle.
Let's look at some of the featured speakers at the Democratic convention. On Monday, they included Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, and former first lady Michelle Obama. Each one of them radically supports prenatal homicide, i.e., abortion. In very recent memory we saw Cuomo's abortion law in New York paving the way for "post-birth abortion" and Sanders' proclamation to a town hall audience in March that "Being pro-choice is an absolutely essential part of being a Democrat."
Other convention speakers representing the Party of Death include Bill and Hillary Clinton; Sen. Elizabeth Warren (who declared in November while campaigning, "Black trans and cis women, gender-nonconforming and nonbinary people are the backbone of our democracy"); Mayor Pete Buttigieg (a self-proclaimed sodomite who purports to be married to a man) and former president Barack Obama (who steered the nation deeper into the "age of insanity").
The lineup of anti-Catholic Catholic speakers includes House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, former secretary of state John Kerry, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Gov. Cuomo and Joe Biden himself.
It's safe to say that every speaker at the Democratic convention supports Kennedy's "right to define one's own concept of existence," which unfailingly means supporting the ongoing prenatal genocide of abortion, so-called same-sex marriage, gender ideology that recognizes multiple genders and defunding or "reimagining" the police so that violent criminals may have their way. In other words, they all faithfully support the agenda to destroy America and Western civilization.
Anyone who supports any of these abominations cannot possibly believe in God. They can acknowledge He exists, like the Devil himself does, and even "reimagine" Him in their minds as a god that submits to one's own disordered desires. However, to "believe" in the religious sense includes a commitment to humbly accepting His eternal will and submitting to it.
We have not learned from history. Everyone's history teacher has at least once said, "If we don't learn from history we are doomed to repeat it." We can see this now in progress within today's Democratic Party.
Nazism, communism, socialism and every other kind of "-ism" that sought to live out the brotherhood of man without the Fatherhood of God has resulted in massive death and utter disaster. We can see the beginnings of this error in America now; it's in our culture and embedded in one of our major political parties. The only question is whether enough Americans will enable this progressive ideology — an ideology whose aim is to 'progress' past belief in God — to destroy the nation.
As one cannot rightly love neighbor without loving God, no nation can truly care for its own without publicly recognizing, in gratitude, the providence of the Creator.
