The good folk at the 700 Club and their media outlet CBN could have discussed how the Democratic platform focused on the works of Jesus in helping the poor and disabled. They could have discussed the affirmation of faith and the embrace of people from all walks of life. They could have even brought up the focus on the American Dream instead of on the greedy.
No such luck. Instead, CBN correspondent David Brody decided on discussing that the Democratic platform did not use the word God. Nothing about what was in the platform, only whether or not the Democratic party used a word.
However, instead of even discussing that, he declared that the Democratic party had “dropped” the word God. This is a gross misstatement, as it implies that the word was in there to begin with and was only removed after some point. Upon its release, the platform had not used that word, so it was not dropped at all.
So, in spite of Mr. Brody being so astute, he did fail to mention that the party platform also did not mention Batman once! Nor did it mention Cadillac, puppies, teddy bears, nor even Goku from Dragonball Z. It is clear, using Mr Brody’s logic, that Obama must be part of a secret plan to destroy America by eliminating Batman, expensive cars, puppies, teddy bears, and of course anime alien heroes! By Mr. Brody’s logic, this must, of course, be part of the continuing War on Superheroes.
Or is it that Mr. Brody is trying to frame an argument? Unable to find fault with the Democratic platform, he cherry-picks to try and find something to complain about. It is clear that like other notables such as Chuck Norris, Paul Ryan and Rick Santorum, David Brody does not understand that the United States is not a Christian theocracy. That David can only find that the platform lacks a single particular word, when it does go into detail on what can only properly be called “works” in the Bible should tell you something about which party is the party who follows the word of God.
It is clear that David Brody has forgotten his James 2:24:
“You see that a man is justified by works, and not by faith alone.”
UPDATE – In a surprise move late today, the convention did add a provision to the party platform which did include the word God. No word from the party leadership if a vote to include Batman was being prepared for a vote tomorrow.
