Democrats Are Losers When It Comes To The Religious

Democrats’ Scorn For Religion Is The Great Disconnect

According to the former director of Barack Obama’s 2012 faith-outreach
 efforts, Michael Wear, the Democratic Party simply doesn’t get it when
 it comes to religion. Wear explained that the Obama administration was
 “unnecessarily antagonistic toward religious conservatives in both of those
fights.” Wear nearly quit the Obama administration altogether over their
 discrimination against a pastor who had preached the Biblical worldview

He once drafted a faith-outreach fact sheet describing Obama’s views

on poverty, titling it “Economic Fairness and the Least of These,” a reference to a famous teaching from Jesus in the Bible. Another

staffer repeatedly deleted “the least of these,” commenting, “Is

this a typo? It doesn’t make any sense to me. Who/what are ‘these’?”
The Biblical illiteracy of the Obama team wasn’t lost on Christians, who voted
overwhelmingly for Donald Trump. Exit polls showed that well over 80 percent
 of white evangelical and born-again Christians voted for Donald Trump,
 despite his well-publicized history of social leftism and foibles in his personal
life, as well as his own obvious Biblical illiteracy. Trump, though, wasn’t
 militaristically anti-Bible – the Obama White House was.
Voting doesn’t take place in a vacuum. Most voters see voting as an act of
 opposition, not merely support for a politician. And most religious voters
 opposed Obama and Hillary Clinton, who held the same convictions on
Obama did. It didn’t help Hillary that her campaign director, John Podesta,
characterized Catholics as fools who “must be attracted to the systematic
 thought and severely backwards gender relations,” or that his fellow
honcho, Jennifer Palmieri, replied that most top level Republicans who are
 Catholic became Catholic because it’s a “form of religion” more acceptable
 to their wealthy compatriots. Hillary herself said that religious people would
have to change their views in order to facilitate social leftism: “deep-seated
cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.”
Democrats, however, continue to suggest that religious Americans must be
 targeted for their supposed intolerance. No wonder Democrats are losing
throughout the most religious areas of the country.
