DNC Belittles Americans of Faith

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) unanimously passed a resolution August 24 that embraced “religiously unaffiliated” voters and belittled Americans of faith.

The resolution proclaimed that 70 percent of “religiously unaffiliated” Americans share the values of the Democrat Party.

‘The religiously unaffiliated demographic represents the largest religious group within the Democratic Party, growing from 19% in 2007 to one in three today,” stated the resolution, passed during the DNC’s summer meeting in San Francisco.

In a reach for secularists or the non-religious, the Democrats pointed out “religiously unaffiliated Americans overwhelmingly share the Democrat Party’s values, with 70% voting for Democrats in 2018, 80% supporting same-sex marriage, and 61% saying immigrants make American society stronger.”

The DNC further embraced and defended the non-religious, asserting they “have often been subjected to unfair bias and exclusion in American society, particularly in the areas of politics and policy-making where assumptions of religiosity have long predominated.”

That's okay. We don't subscribe to their agenda anyway. So much hullabaloo about a bunch of lunatics. If they go away, we are richer.

I'm an atheist, and conservative registered republican. Recognizing that there are "non-religious" Americans and voters is NOT belittling people of faith.

One does not follow the other.

As an atheist it is nice to be recognized as having value in the public discourse. The republicans should follow as well.

We are not "America, with liberty and justice for religious people"... we are "America, with liberty and justice for ALL".
