When the DNC came to Charlotte

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (9/11/12) When the DNC came to Charlotte, area churches, 100 of them, offered hospitality, not knowing how much the Dems hate God.
The Sunday before the DNC, over 9000 people had come together to pray for the convention. Then, wanting to extend hospitality to the visitors to their city, 56 of the churches set out to "Adopt-a-Delegation."

They put together gift baskets featuring Carolina Pralines and a letter
welcoming them to the city and offering assistance in transportation,
childcare or spiritual matters. According to writer, Todd Starnes, The DNC
banned the churches from distributing the gift baskets to delegates because, DNC said, the congregations hold values that are contrary to the party platform.
Read that carefully.

David Benham, one of the organizers of the outreach said, "We were just
trying to display Southern hospitality." DNC officials, however, conveyed to
city leaders that the Christians would not be allowed to present their gift
baskets.

Even the Charlotte Mayor's office jumped in to tell the churches not to
participate, saying that their views on women's rights are contrary to the
platform. That's right....the same platform that booed God later.

Benham then asked if they could send welcome letters to the delegates.
Again, the DNC refused, because, they said, "The churches hold pro-life
values." The baskets did not contain a single political or pro-life message.
They just wanted to give them regional candles and a welcome letter. The DNC refused to return numerous phone calls seeking comment.

But it gets worse. When a gathering of 200 Muslims showed up to pray for the convention, the Dems welcomed them with open arms and the liberal media gave extensive national coverage.

It is ironic that this day, in the shadow of that Islamic prayer event, we
commemorate the greatest tragedy in American History, when Muslims attacked America on September 11, 2001, brutally killing thousands.of innocent people.

Muslims who publicly state their hatred of our country with fierce
determination to kill us all and put America under Sharia Law, are welcomed by the Democratic Party while Christians are pushed out of sight like criminals because they respect life and hold family values.

These are the same democrats who want you to vote them into office to direct the United States of America and every life from beginning to end. It is obvious that we must not let this happen.

Our thanks to Rev. Ed Berkey (retired) who alerted us to this story.

This is blasphemous to hate God so much.  We just have to pray to God and let God handle their judgements.

Actually, this is to Romney's advantage; just think how many hundreds of votes obama just lost.  And we know that's a good thing.

The DNC, not Obama did that.

And for the full story, we can only speculate what happened. It was most likely a decision made by a handful of DNC event organizers and the Muslim prayer was not handled by the same people who turned the christians down. The entire dem party is not made up of atheists, just as the entire repub party is not made up of christians. Both parties have people with extreme views.

I actually do agree the church gifts/letters would not have been appropriate. You know, that whole separation of church and state thing. I don't agree with the muslim prayer either, nor would I agree with any religion being involved in the DNC.
