The Femocrats are bad at politics. if you need any more proof, check out their new official DNC resolution that proclaimed:
“The religiously unaffiliated demographic represents the largest religious group within the Democratic Party.”
They are literally losing votes every time they open their mouths and there is still more than a year before the election.
A former faith adviser to then-President Barack Obama, Michael Wear, was stunned and trashed the Dems for their ignorance.
“These people actually approved a resolution with the claim: “the religiously unaffiliated demographic represents the largest religious group within the Democratic Party.” Because Protestants are all divided with their denominations, but the religiously unaffiliated are coherent,
I just want to be clear. This is both politically stupid, but also, just stupid on a fundamental level that transcends electoral politics.”
Here is the full resolution:
WHEREAS, the religiously unaffiliated demographic has tripled in the last two decades, now representing 25% of the overall American population and 35% of those under the age of 30; and
WHEREAS, religiously unaffiliated Americans overwhelmingly share the Democratic Party’s values, with 70% voting for Democrats in 2018, 80% supporting same-sex marriage, and 61% saying immigrants make American society stronger; and
WHEREAS, the religiously unaffiliated demographic represents the largest religious group within the Democratic Party, growing from 19% in 2007 to one in three today; and
WHEREAS, the nonreligious have often been subjected to unfair bias and exclusion in American society, particularly in the areas of politics and policymaking where assumptions of religiosity have long predominated; and
WHEREAS, those 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; and
WHEREAS, the 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; and
WHEREAS, nonreligious Americans made up 17% of the electorate in 2018 and have the potential to deliver millions more votes for Democrats in 2020 with targeted outreach to further increase turnout of nonreligious voters; and
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE recognizes:
- The value, ethical soundness, and importance of the religiously unaffiliated demographic, a group of Americans who contribute in innumerable ways to the arts, sciences, medicine, business, law, the military, their communities, the success of the Party and prosperity of the Nation; and
- That religiously unaffiliated Americans are a group that, as much as any other, advocates for rational public policy based on sound science and universal humanistic values and should be represented, included, and heard by the Party.
I just want to be clear. This is both politically stupid, but also, just stupid on a fundamental level that transcends electoral politics.
