There was a much-hyped Muslim prayer rally sanctioned and embraced by the Democrat National Convention in Charlotte. (Pre-rally hype estimated participants exceeding 20,000. Apparently, only 200 or so showed up). Muslims were invited and welcomed by the DNC. Christians were shunned.
Much has been made of the difficulty the DNC has had believing in God (and in Jerusalem) this week, but few have bothered to mention that Democrats officially distanced themselves from evangelical Christians. While Democrats fully supported a Muslim prayer rally, they totally rejected a Christian one.
According to this report, Christians of all denominations and backgrounds joined together from all over the Charlotte region to pray for the nation. The group of 9,000 hoped to “adopt a delegate” at the DNC, which meant sending a welcome basket to each delegate and giving them information about Charlotte and her churches.
The DNC officially denied the request of Charlotte 714. The reason?
According to David Benham, the organizer of Charlotte 714, “The mayor’s office texted me and said, ‘We regret to inform but we ask that you not send those letters, and not engage in ‘Adopt a Delegation,’ because your views on women are contrary to the convention.’”
It seems to me this move is more anti-Christian than anti-abortion. (Both positions are deplorable). Here is why the move seems more anti-Christian: The Muslim disposition is probably as anti-abortion as is that of evangelical Christians (see here). While the move by the DNC indicates just how completely they have succumbed to the cause of abortion, it also appears to be signaling a future in which the DNC is progressively moving to separate from traditional Christianity.
