Thunderbolts?

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Sep 05, 2012

Does anyone else find it significant that after approving a political platform that pushed for free abortion on demand and same-sex marriage, and removed any mention of God (I know, I know; they have restored Him--reluctantly), the leaders of the Democratic party announced that they would be moving the Charlotte convention indoors because of a threat of thunderstorms?

If ever an American political party has run the risk of being hit by lightning bolts, this is it.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    No worry for these leaders,If they believe God exists,He may be perceived as an indifferent God to their behavior.

    The democrats did well to stay indoors. During the debates of 2007, lightning interrupted Rudy Giuliani several times as he proclaimed "abortion rights". If the debate was held outside, who knows what would have happened!
