THE most amazing moment at the Democratic national convention in Charlotte, N.C., came when delegates booed God.
The Democrats had excised God (as well as support for Israel's claim to Jerusalem) from the party's quadrennial platform.
Matt Drudge saw this and decided to banner it on his Drudge Report.
Not being suicidal, President Obama told Democrats to return God and Jerusalem to the party platform.
Getting the Cleveland Browns to win a game is easier. The president needed two-thirds approval to return God and Jerusalem to the Democratic Party platform.
He may not have had half the votes.
"Needled by Mitt Romney and other Republicans, Democrats hurriedly rewrote their convention platform Wednesday to add a mention of God and declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel after President Barack Obama intervened to order the changes," the Associated Press reported.
"The embarrassing reversal was compounded by chaos and uncertainty on the convention floor.
"Three times Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, the convention chairman, called for a voice vote on the changes and each time the yes and no votes seemed to balance each other out.
"On the third attempt, Villaraigosa ruled the amendments were approved — triggering boos from many in the audience."
The fans in Philadelphia no longer are the worst in the world. They only booed Santa Claus in 1968.
But Villaraigosa made the wrong call by ignoring the boos. Most Democrats no longer credit God for anything. Why have Him in the platform?
I am not saying Democrats are a pack of atheists. Democrats still believe in God.
Nancy Pelosi still goes to Catholic church on Sunday. President Obama goes to a Protestant church. Harry Reid goes to Mormon temple. The party is ecumenical.
In God We Trust is still the national motto.
