Carol Platt Liebau: No Room For God?

No Room For God?

This piece points out the fissures in the Democratic Party over religion. The consultant upon whom the piece focuses was very successful in helping her Democratic clients reach out to people of faith -- but, predictably, some in the Democratic Party aren't pleased, arguing that her approach is frighteningly reminiscent of the religious right.

And that, my friends, is the core of the Democrats' religion problem. The press likes to skirt the issue, as if the Democrats are just delicately reluctant to discuss their faith in public. The ugly truth is that there is a committed band of militant secularists and atheists in the Democrat Party, who are not just uncomfortable with religion, but are downright hostile to it . . . but you won't read that in the MSM.

I can't disagree that the rift is a major problem within the Democratic Party, but I think equally problematic is how one who professes a deep and committed faith can defend a pro-abortion stance or pro-homosexual marriage stance. I can easily see even a John Kerry being truly against either issue personally, but for the sake of winning the political contest, avoid those issues when possible. So for me, bringing this out in the open would be a good thing. It would be interesting to see how they'd respond when pressed on those points and it could sway an election either way.
