    Yesterday, the DNC had to pretend it had a 2/3 vote to assert that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and for the inclusion of the phrase, “God-given gifts” into their national platform, because three attempts to vote couldn’t bring it. Whether it was the “God” language or the “Jerusalem” language they resisted more is hard to say.

    It was all idiotic.

    For one, there is no reason why either the RNC or DNC should recognize Jerusalem as the Capital, when the International Community in the UN doesn't, and no administration since 1947 has.

    All recognize Tel Aviv as the Capital why should the party platforms do otherwise?

    It was my understanding the Obama intervened by asking for God to be reinstated into the platform. I think this was included in that package. It was awkward to say the least.

    Yeah that's what I heard, that Obama was outraged that God was excluded from the platform and demanded that it be included.

    However, my guess is that it was a reaction to the negativity surrounding the exclusion.

    Either way, if anyone believes that either the Republicans or Democrats are on God's side, you better take a look at your own spiritual formation.
