Dems remove God from party platform; Dick Durbin lashes out at Bret Baier


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.

@BretBaier @joetrippi Wow!! Dick Durbin (D-IL) just came unglued during the first interview with Bret!! Why so sensitive about platform?

@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.

@SenatorDurbin Hey DICK, Why can't you just answer @bretbaier's question? Why did you Dems take God out of your platform?

— JackRyan (@BryanBentleyMI) September 4, 2012

@SenatorDurbin Its okay…I know you got embarrassed about @BretBaier 's question. Instead of answering, you attacked Bret. #conclusion ?

@BretBaier: WOW. U struck a nerve asking about missing words "God" & "Jerusalem" in Dem platform. Legit question. I want to know why gone.

IL Sen Durbin gets upset & REFUSES to answer @BretBaier when asked why "God" & "Jerusalem" from the #DNC2012 platform. Touchy. Just answer!

— Robert Reed (@robby_reed) September 4, 2012

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