In 1972, the Democratic Party began shedding its political skin, revealing its true identify: It was a religion. A religion whose beliefs, while still evolving, would be required of all adherents. Death with dignity, abortion on demand, euthanasia, no-fault divorce, fetal experimentation and homosexual rights became some of the dogmas, or sacraments, of the new political party/religion. All these sacraments are inimical to Christian beliefs and, at that time, caused huge defections from the party.
Abortion was the pivotal issue for many party faithful then and has remained so in every election since, despite the party's efforts to downplay its significance. This is the issue that frames all other issues; it is the number one of number-one issues because it was the first of many aberrant social issues the Democratic Party adopted. But, like union heads, heads of the Democratic Party seem to have little more than contempt for the ideas or positions of moderates among them and can "excommunicate" the unfaithful.
Politicians such as John Kerry, Ted Kennedy, Tom Daschle and many others were practicing Catholics years before becoming involved in politics. They knew full well that to put the planks of abortion, euthanasia, partial-birth abortion, same-sex marriage, etc., into building the altar of the Democratic Party would put them at moral odds with their professed Catholicism. But to call the party to question over such extreme issues would be disloyal. Catholic pols understand the seriousness of the party's high priests when they command acceptance of new dogma by all party faithful: The Democrat Religion will brook no dissent. It abides no other God.

Yes, liberalism is a religion; the Bible turned up-side-down. They tolerate no other God before them. It’s absolutely disgusting.
They are going to progress to demanding sex with children, too. They have already taken it upon themselves to groom children in their union schools.
The Democrats denied God three times at this year’s national party convention.
They are also the majority party in this country.
Heck, I’m alienated by the Democratic party and I’m an agnostic.
But then, I’m offended by socialism in general.
