How The DemocratiK Party Has Broken the Ten Commandments
By: Patriot Update
By Gene Vallorani & Brandon Vallorani
It’s no wonder that Charlton Heston was a Republican. The DemocratiK Party platform seeks to overturn the ten foundational laws, found in Exodus 20:2-17, that God gave us to govern ourselves. These simple yet profound laws form the basis of faith, family, freedom, and private property. Sadly, we are watching the systematic erosion of these laws and ultimately the demise of Western Civilization. Let’s take a look at each of the Ten Commandments and how the Democrats legislate the exact opposite!
I: 'You shall have no other gods before Me.'
The ACLU, the legal arm of the Democrat Party, has been relentless in its fight to remove any mention of God from public life. Prayer and Bible Reading in Government Schools is forbidden. Crosses and Nativity Scenes are removed, even though the majority of Americans claim to be Christians.
II: 'You shall not make for yourself a carved image--any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.'
The Democrat Party, in conjunction with Teacher’s unions, promotes an exclusively atheistic curriculum based on the Theory of Evolution. Our children are taught to worship the creature, rather than the Creator. The extreme environmentalists of the Democrat Party call upon us to worship our Mother Earth, rather than God the Father.
III: 'You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.'
Have you ever noticed that it is acceptable for Liberals to quote the Bible out of context to support their anti-Christian agenda? They will twist God’s Word to justify their wickedness. Prayers are offered before their legislative sessions to discuss abortion, gay marriage, repeal of “don't ask don't tell,” etc. This is taking God’s name in vain, as He cannot be called upon to bless sin. On the other hand, Conservatives are criticized for bringing their faith into the public realm.
IV: 'Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.'
Sunday sessions are called when Democrats feel it is necessary. Recently, the DemocratiK controlled House of Representatives passed their health care bill on Christmas Eve.
V: 'Honor your father and your mother.'
The Democrats want the government to ration your health care so that “everyone” will have “health insurance.” Ironically, when mom and dad are too old and expensive for the State to care for, they will simply be left to die.
VI: 'You shall not murder.'
Nearly 50 million children have been slaughtered under the premise that they are not people or American citizens. Need we say more
VII: 'You shall not commit adultery.'
Case in point: Bill Clinton. The Democrats reminded us over and over again that an elected official’s private life should be kept separate from their public life. That idea is conveniently overturned when it is a Republican, like Governor Mark Sanford, who was caught in adultery.
VIII: 'You shall not steal.'
The Democrat’s desire for the "redistribution of wealth” is nothing more than legalized theft. Why should the wages of one man be taken and given to another? This is not charity. Democrats seize the prosperity of productive citizens and give it to those who have not earned it in exchange for their votes. This is the dirty little secret that keeps them getting elected.
IX: 'You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.'
The Democrats will stop at nothing to destroy their political enemies with lies.
X: 'You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's.'
Every election cycle, the Democrats promote "Class Warfare." Rather than encouraging citizens to work hard to achieve their own “American Dream,” they make them jealous of what their neighbor has earned. They also advocate salary caps on private corporations and forbid certain industries from giving its workers bonus payments.
