Will any Democrat be in Heaven?
In case you missed it (video provided below), Senator Richard Durbin was asked in an interview with Fox News why the word "God" was left out of the 2012 Democratic platform.
I am not sure if Fox News was trying to show up the Democratic Party or not by interviewing Durbin on this subject.
Yet, the interview did make me wonder, will we see any Democrats in heaven?
Lets take a look at what modern Democrats believe to be true and what policies they support.
First, Democrats support abortion rights. O.K., so do many Libertarians. Libertarians and Democrats who support abortion "rights" argue that a women owns her own body and has the right to put an end to an unwanted pregnancy.
Tell me please - has the scientific community come to a consensus on when life begins? No, it has not. Therefore, it is possible - not from a religious point of view, but strictly from the standpoint of biology - that life begins at conception.
If it is possible that life begins at conception, it is possible that ending a pregnancy is ending a life. If that is the case it is called killing a living human being - something covered in the Old and New Testaments. Even if you do not believe in God, you can argue that since our Constitution protects the right to life, every abortion is a violation of a person's natural, rather than God-given right to life, and therefore is a criminal act.
Second, Democrats support using the law to take money away from one person to give it to another. I have seen countless "Christian" Democrats argue that Jesus taught us to be our brother's keeper and therefore welfare payments satisfy Christian doctrine.
Tell me please, where did Jesus say it was o.k. to use force to gain the resources that are funneled to "charitable" acts? He never said it was morally right to steal (using force to take property from someone) in order to pay for the care of our brothers. Stealing is also covered in Holy Scriptures and it is not justified anywhere.
Third, Democrats support forcing children to go to schools they are zoned for. Zones are artificial borders created by force (law) that prevents free, emancipated adult human beings (parents) from sending their child to the school they choose.
Take a look at the worst schools in America. They are not Catholic, secular private or home schools. All of the worst schools are in areas where children are forced to go to the local monopoly for an "education". This increases - dramatically - the odds that those children will become poor as adults. Once they become poor as adults they are invited to become slaves to the welfare state that was also largely created by Democrats (see FDR and LBJ). They might also end up in prison as a result of being poor. Come to think of it, most of America's prison population is made up of men with no father at home. The fatherless men trend accelerated after the welfare state was created.
Ending human life, theft, educational slavery, destroyed families....
How do you get to heaven on that foundation?
