Dan Proft: The Secular Elite’s Discomfort With the Faithful
Apparently, the path to putting a Democrat in the White House runs through God. No, that’s not me saying God favors Republicans. That is, essentially, the argument from foul-mouthed DNC Chairman Tom Perez. He’s uncomfortable with the fact that church-going people disapprove of Democrat candidates motivated in large part by their conviction on issues of life and death … convictions about abortion. Perez recently complained about clergy who are willing to support Trump motivated in large part on the issue of life. He’s frustrated that “people buy it” from these clergy—and I quote—“because that’s their only source.” Perez is unnerved by churchgoers who lean on their spiritual leaders, leaders who are working from the Bible rather than relying on today’s secular elites. The short of it is Tom Perez would like you to stop attending church because it puts a real crimp in the ability of Democrats to make the state supreme.
