Rise of the religious left? Democratic Party hires faith outreach director to address 'God problem'




Caleb ParkeBy Caleb Parke | Fox News


The conflicts heating up over faith and politics

Rep. Ilhan Omar and presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand are two prominent Democrats that have taken swings at the Republican party, specifically those of the religious right, in recent months. So are Democrats trying to attract religious voters by saying the GOP is 'not a faith driven' party? Here to weigh in is Dr. Serene Jones and Dr. Alex McFarland.

In 2012, the last election Democrats won, a headline from their convention read: "Democrats boo God." In 2016, they heckled a preacher during the opening prayer.


It's a perception they've been trying to change since, especially on the 2020 campaign trail.


Political pundits said Democrats have a God problem and their latest move shows they are taking steps to solve it.

President Trump solidified the evangelical vote in 2016 but Democrats hope to make up for the sins of Hillary Clinton's campaign, which was criticized for its lack of outreach to faith groups in the last election. The Democratic Party recruited a far-left religious outreach director and is launching a round of listening sessions with faith leaders leading up to the 2020 election.

WILL TRUMP SOLIDIFY MORE CHRISTIAN VOTERS IN 2020? THIS EVANGELICAL LEADER THINKS SO



Democrats hired former Washington, D.C. anti-Trump pastor, Rev. Derrick Harkins, who held a similar position in 2012 and has been the senior vice president of Union Theological Seminary in New York City, which recently celebrated "rejoicing in the queerness of God."

“We take seriously the relationships that we have with faith communities around this country," Harkins told Religion News Service, adding that faith "will be a priority going into 2020, but even more importantly, beyond 2020.”

Over the past few elections, Democrats have alienated themselves further from religious voters, partly in due to stances it takes on social issues like abortion and gay marriage, not to mention its focus on urban communities that tend to have lower church attendance than their rural counterparts. While Trump took 80 percent of the white evangelical vote, Democratic presidential hopefuls are gearing up for more faith outreach, especially in historically black churches and within minority communities.

But with 25 candidates running, the field offers a wide-range of faith perspectives. But the eventual nominee will be the one to shape where the party truly heads.

Recently Democratic presidential candidate Kristin Gillibrand said she doesn't believe the GOP is a "faith-driven party" because their policies go against her idea of what Christianity is all about, and South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg questioned Trump's faith and called him out for hypocrisy.

"Within the Democratic Party there is a huge spectrum of deeply faithful people," Serene Jones, president of Union Theological Seminary, told Fox News Religion Correspondent Lauren Green. "For too long, when we look at religion in America, we have associated with just politics and the religious communities that have been associated with the Republican Party and conservative politics...and there is a strong progressive Christian voice that is being spoken and lifted up and demanding to be heard."

Jones added progressives are "very open about the kind of Christianity they profess."

"Most of the progressive Christians are also deeply involved in interfaith conversations. They understand and know a lot about Islam, about Judaism," Jones said. "They're constantly connecting their own faith claims as Christians to a critique of anti-Semitism and Islamophobia."

Alex McFarland, founder of Truth For a New Generation, told Green he believes the Democrats are a godless party with no objective morality.

"I think many are saying 'Uh, oh, oops, we've alienated and just written off the majority of our voters over the life of this party, so they're having to try and invoke God because their platform has eliminated God. It's certainly not the god of the founders or the god of the Bible. It's a god of the 21st century, pluralistic, relativistic of our own making," Alex McFarland, founder of Truth For a New Generation said. "The Democratic Party is going to have to rediscover some moral convictions..."

Notice the word progressive in front of Christian ... these are not orthodox evangelical Christians the DNC is hiring. These are Marxists who coopt religion to exert control over non conformists. The line is just getting clearer and clearer.

From the article..

"
Democrats hired former Washington, D.C. anti-Trump pastor, Rev. Derrick Harkins, who held a similar position in 2012 and has been the senior vice president of Union Theological Seminary in New York City, which recently celebrated "rejoicing in the queerness of God."

“We take seriously the relationships that we have with faith communities around this country," Harkins told Religion News Service, adding that faith "will be a priority going into 2020, but even more importantly, beyond 2020.”


Perhaps they can get Rev Jesse Jackson and Rev Al Sharpton to join with him...you know, like Larry, Curly and Moe..

Maybe they will invite Minister Farrakhan to assist !

The Dems really don't have the slightest clue about real, Biblical Christianity, do they ?

They seem to think if they HIRE some phony suit, it will deceive Bible believing Christians. Take a clue Dems, it has to be genuine, or it won't work.

Biblical Christians can spot a false teacher from a mile away .

Well, I've been yelling for a long time that it's impossible for a democrat to be a Christian.

Everything they stand for is immoral and anti-GOD.
To be a Christian you have to walk the walk, not just talk the talk.

No real Christian will fall for their subterfuge, because real Christians can THINK.

^^^THAT^^^ Bug got it right folks..

A real Christian reads the word and does his/her best t "walk the walk". How does one walk the walk..and still promote Sodom & Gomorrah lifestyle. gang up to remove our basic freedoms..such a s the freedom of speech, religion and the right to keep and bear arms. and endorse the butchery of the most innocent among us.

I could go on and on but why bother, they will just "stop up their ears"..just as they did 2,000 years ago with Stephen...…

" But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, looked intently into heaven and saw the glory of God and Jesus standing at the right hand of God. “Look,” he said, “I see heaven open and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.”
At this they covered their ears, cried out in a loud voice, and rushed together at him. They dragged him out of the city and began to stone him. Meanwhile, the witnesses laid their garments at the feet of a young man named Saul. (Acts 7:55-58)
