In the early days leading up to the Civil War, the division the two major political parties was clearly a line between pro-slavery Democrats and anti slavery Republicans. Christians were to be found on both sides of the slavery issue. Republicans prevailed and the slaves were emancipated.
In the post-WW2 era, the segregation of negroes in our society became the top issue. Again, Republican prevailed and our American society became fully integrated in every area of life.
In the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision, the majority created a new right out of thin air, the right to privacy and the mass slaughter of unborn Americans was underway. Here, again, the Democrats stridently support a woman’s un-constitutional right to kill her baby right up to and even moments after birth; Republicans continue to stand on our natural Right to Life. This contentious issue has not been fully settled. Since 1996, support for unrestricted abortions has greatly diminished, according to a recent Gallup poll. Public sentiment is much more pro-life now (2020).
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty [emancipation from bondage, true freedom]. 2 Corinthians 3:17, Amplified Bible
In 2012, the Democrats came under fire for removing God from the party platform. In 2019, Cheryl K. Chumley wrote in The Washington Times, an article titled Democrats’ ongoing problem with God, “Democrats, as recent headlines show, are planning to amend the requirement that those testifying before the House Committee on Natural Resources will swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth — without the “so help you God” finish line. Anything to get God out of government, right?“
A Politico article titled Judge’s faith becomes early flashpoint in Supreme Court fight succinctly makes the case of Democrat opposition to Christians and the Biblical worldview.
In my opinion, the distinct characteristic of the Democratic Party in 2020 is practical atheism. The Democrat oligarchy carefully recasts the party as ‘tolerant’ of Christians while subtly working to silence all religious freedom.
Sadly for the Democrats who do not have the peace that only comes from the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, the 2020 election season is a terrifying time.
