Dick Durbin put Bret Baier on defense today when he tried to question Durbin about why Democrats had removed the word “God” from their platform. Durbin said, “Well, I could just basically tell you, if the narrative that is being presented on your station and through your channel and your network is that the Democrats are Godless people, they ought to know better. God is not a franchise of the Republican party.” It never got much better for Baier especially when, after asking why Democrats had removed “Jerusalem,” too, Durbin retorted, “Those two words coming out means our relationship with Israel has changed? Is that fair? Is that balanced?”
It's long overdue for Democrats to confront and challenge Fox on their agenda. Three cheers for Senator Durbin!
Fox News, ever on offense against Democrats, called its video, "Durbin defensive over changes to Democratic Party platform." You tell me whether it was Durbin or Baier who was defensive.
“God is not a franchise of the Republican party”—that was well said. And I am glad that it is true. God is little more than a tribal buzz-word to the Republicans, with real no meaning attached. Faith, love, charity? I don’t think they truly embrace any of these-least of all a faith that their deeds on Earth will follow them to the afterlife. Republicans are some of the most materialistic folks on the planet.

Wasn’t it Jesus who encouraged his followers to keep religion and secular affairs separate? To the point where ostentatious worshiping was not highly regarded? Wish Woke were here to provide chapters and verses.
Must reread “Stranger in a Strange Land” by Robert Heinlan.
More probably the Governor of Maryland but couldn’t swear to it: I have difficulty identifying people’s faces. Was perplexed until somebody said that the young man doing a walk-through of the keynote speech was on the stage with his twin brother.
I don’t understand though is the U.S. an Israeli state or vice versa. Both parties compete in sucking up to Israel. Weird.
