For the last several years, we have faced the barrage on Christians and especially Christian business owners. People who have done nothing more than begged out of sharing in a situation that they consider sinful. No more, no less.
This has caused those in the DNC and other Liberal circles to demand that action be taken. They wished to make the Christians pay for the privilege of having strongly held beliefs. But, if there are some in the DNC that are not tolerant, and they are fine as long as they are not Christian
The Hill reports
DNC boots candidate from chairmanship race for criticizing Ellison’s Islamic faith
The Democratic National Committee is kicking a candidate out of the chairmanship race after he told The Hill that Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) should not be the party’s next leader because he is a Muslim.
In a Jan. 5 email to The Hill, Vincent Tolliver, a former House candidate in Arkansas, said that Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress, should not be chairman because of Islamic positions on homosexuality.
“His being a Muslim is precisely why DNC voters should not vote for him,” Tolliver wrote. “Muslims discriminate against gays. Islamic law is clear on the subject, and being gay is a direct violation of it. In some Muslim countries, being gay is a crime punishable by death.”
Tolliver, a very progressive LGBT activist, was not praised for his words, quite the opposite. He was blackballed from running against Ellison because he made an obvious deduction. But the DNC did not see this deduction as acceptable.
The Hill continues
“The Democratic Party welcomes all Americans from all backgrounds. What we do not welcome is people discriminating against others based on who they are or how they worship,” interim Chairwoman Donna Brazile said in a statement to The Hill.
“We expect candidates for Chair of the Party to conduct a respectful campaign based on issues. To assure that, we ask all our Chair candidates to pledge ‘to uphold the interests, welfare and success of the Democratic Party of the United States,’ and to participate in the process ‘in good faith.’ Mr. Tolliver’s disgusting comments attacking the religion of a fellow candidate fall far short of that standard. Accordingly, Mr. Tolliver is no longer a candidate for DNC Chair.”
So, the DNC welcomes all Americans regardless of who they are or how they worship. They do not accept those who discriminate unless that discrimination is the firmly held belief of a successful vote-getter.
And the claim that they want campaigns based on the issues sounds hollow when we consider that Homosexuality is a base issue on the DNC platform.
This shows once again that the DNC have no real values, only those that will help them keep power. If I were a sodomite, this would scare me. What will they do to you once they no longer need you?
