"Those who refuse to worship the big G -- God -- will end up worshipping the small g -- government."

A Political Party to Help Lost Souls?
—Michael Medved

"Obama and Biden comprise the most unabashedly liberal ticket in modern political history, and the official party platform moves the Democrats even further to the left.

In contrast to previous planks pledging to keep abortions rare, the 2008 document twice demands federal funding for termination of pregnancies. The platform also provides the following perplexing promise: "We will provide immediate relief to working people who have lost their jobs, families who have lost their homes and people who have lost their way."

Usually, it's religion--not politics--that provides help to those "who have lost their way." The platform writers show the way that leftist true believers have formed their own substitutes for traditional faith. As Rabbi Daniel Lapin trenchantly observes, those who refuse to worship "the big G"--God--will end up worshipping "the small g"--government."
