The Democratic National Committee (DNC) has passed a new resolution praising America’s “religiously unaffiliated” as the “largest religious group within the Democratic Party.” This was passed unanimously this week by the DNC at their summer meeting in San Francisco, California.
Looks like the Democrats have found a way to move even more left if that seemed possible. One has to ask if the “religiously unaffiliated” share the party’s values what about those who are religious? Just asking.
“Religiously unaffiliated Americans overwhelmingly share the Democratic Party’s values,” the resolution states.
The resolution also says that the political party should push for “rational public policy based on sound science and universal humanistic values.”
“[T]he religiously unaffiliated demographic represents the largest religious group within the Democratic Party, growing from 19% in 2007 to one in three today,” says the resolution. “… [T]he Democratic Party is an inclusive organization that recognizes that morals, values, and patriotism are not unique to any particular religion, and are not necessarily reliant on having a religious worldview at all.”
“[T]hose most loudly claiming that morals, values, and patriotism must be defined by their particular religious views have used those religious views, with misplaced claims of ‘religious liberty,’ to justify public policy that has threatened the civil rights and liberties of many Americans, including but not limited to the LGBT community, women, and ethnic and religious/nonreligious minorities,” it says.
