One thing conservatives like me have been pointing out again and again, is the Left is fiercely hostile to Christianity. That’s because, for the most part, the hard core Left, the ones with their hands on the levers of power in the Democratic Party at least, have far more atheists and agnostics in their ranks than you’ll find in the general public. Granted, not all atheists and agnostics dislike Christians, but it is fair to say that as a group, they’re not particularly friendly to Christianity.
So, let’s take a look at some numbers. According to a Pew Report from back in June of 2008, “92 percent (of Americans) believe in God or a universal spirit.” That doesn’t entirely equate to 92% of Americans being Christian, but the vast majority of that group fall into that category.
But, what about the liberal elite of the Democratic Party? What do they believe? Well, there’s no poll I know of that tells you for sure, but there is a poll question at the Democratic Underground called Do you believe in God? that has almost 400 responses so far. Here’s how the results have broken down so far,
That’s right, folks. 92% of the general public may believe in God, but only 28% of the liberals at the DU feel the same way.
Now, are the libs at the DU representative of the Democratic Party? No, because they’re whiter and more liberal than the Dems as a whole and minority and moderate Democrats tend to be more religious than the far Left.
But, you know who the DU probably does match up well with? Howard Dean’s DNC, the staffs of the non-black members of Congress, the membership of the anti-war groups, the left-side of the blogosphere, Barack Obama’s staffers, and the other liberals who tend to heavily influence or actually run the Democratic Party.
If you’re wondering how it is that we can have one political party that’s hostile to Christianity in a nation where 92% of the people believe in God, that’s how it happens. The people who are anti-Christian are the ones running the show in the Democratic Party and the Christian Dems are such wimps that they don’t have the guts to confront them.
