The party platform just adopted by the Democrats in Charlotte, N.C., omits all references to “God” — a first for the party, which mentioned God once in its 2008 platform (in the phrase “God-given potential”) — nor is Jerusalem mentioned.
When questioned by Fox News’ Bret Baier about the omissions, Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin unleashed a little hellfire of his own, accusing Fox of calling the Dems “godless” and “harping on a trifle.”
Right Scoop has the video.
Dick Durbin freaks out and attacks Fox news, refuses to explain why God/Jerusalem removed from platform http://t.co/Q2ulL8wa

@BretBaier why was Dick Durbin so incapable of answering your question on taking "God" out? Pretty pathetic he can't even understand the ?

@BretBaier Dick Durbin acted like a little boy who got caught with his pants down when you asked about God.

@BretBaier Wow. Durbin sure touchy about the name of God and the nation of Israel. Is this the tone "attack and try to intimidate"?
