“Shall We Gather at the Starbucks?”: Hurricane Benefit Concert Features Lib Celebrities Preaching of Behalf of a Politically-Correct, Convenient “God”
Average Americans have all known for sometime that this is not our fathers’ Democrat Party. Conservatives have been driven out and “Moderates” are an endangered species.
Today’s Democrats embrace a Far Left Political Ideology, in which there is no room for a Supreme Being…until they need to reference Him for political leverage and justification.
Don’t believe me?
Remember what happened at the 2012 Democratic National Convention?
Delegates and members of the Democratic party booed after former Gov. Ted Strickland (D-OH) discussed God and moved to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Convention chairman Antonio Villaraigosa, mayor of Los Angeles, had to ask for the Yea and Nay vote several times before declaring the motion passed.
C-SPAN cameras captured the dissatisfaction among members after the motion passed.
More information from the Associated Press:
Democrats have changed their convention platform to add a mention of God and declare that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.
The move came after criticism from Republicans.
Many in the audience booed after the convention chairman, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, ruled that the amendments had been approved despite the fact that a large group of delegates objected.
He called for a vote three times before ruling.
The party reinstated language from the 2008 platform that said “we need a government that stands up for the hopes, values and interests of working people and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their God-given potential.”
The platform also now includes what advisers said was Obama’s personal views on Jerusalem.
Now that we’ve established that, there seems to be a misconception among “the Smartest People in the Room”, American Liberals, about us Christian American Conservatives living in America’s Heartland, who elected Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America.
American Liberals seem to believe that because we are strong in the Faith of Our Fathers, that we are somehow gullible or less intelligent than they are.
And, those who work in Hollywood and the Music Industry are not the exception to the rule.

Mere seconds into the celebrity-filled benefit concert for victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma did these stars turn the ostensible charitable event into a platform for left-wing sermonizing.
Stevie Wonder, who kicked off the show, began with call for unity, but then turned to mock anyone who questioned the global warming theory.
“When love goes into action, it preferences no color of skin, no ethnicity, no religious beliefs, no sexual preferences, and no political persuasions,” Mr. Wonder began. “It just loves. As we should begin to love and value our planet.”
But after calling for love, he singled out skeptics of man-made climate change for derision.
“Anyone who believes that there is no such thing as global warming must be blind or unintelligent,” Mr. Wonder said. “Lord, please save us all.”
Beyoncé followed soon after, again using the national telethon to promote climate change activism, warning that we must prepare for “what comes next.”
“The effects of climate change are playing out around the world every day,” she stated. “Just this past week we have seen devastation from the monsoon in India, an 8.1 earthquake in Mexico, and multiple catastrophic hurricanes. Irma alone has left a trail of death and destruction from the Caribbean to Florida to the southern United States. We have to be prepared for what comes next. So tonight, we come together in a collective effort to raise our voices, to help our communities, to lift our spirits and heal.”
NBC’s Matt Lauer, following Beyoncé, intoned “Hurricane Irma was the most powerful Atlantic storm ever recorded, cutting a path of destruction across the Caribbean, the U.S. Virgin Islands and then setting its sights on the U.S. mainland.”
According to Colorado Statue University meteologist, Philip Klotzbach, Hurricane Irma is actually tied for the 7th strongest hurricane ever recorded:
Justin Bieber, who is reportedly pursuing a more religious lifestyle, introduced “my man,” an unnamed spiritual adviser, as well as a rabbi, Ari Lucas, and the director of the Islamic Center of Southern California, Jihad Turk, to pray.
The prayer, making reference to the “great division in our nation,” eschewed an “amen” at its conclusion in favor of a non-denominational “Hallelujah”:
“God, we the faith community come asking for wisdom, discernment, and compassion, as we walk along side those who have lost so much: loved ones, homes, businesses, and hope. Cause us to be the hands and feet of compassion, to all who are in need, no matter their background. At a time of great division in our nation, may we lay down our differences, pick up our common humanity for the sole purpose of serving our fellow man until hearts are healed and lives restored. And though we don’t yet understand the purpose of the storms, we know you will guide us through the storms. So we close this prayer, not with an amen, but with a praise rooted in an eternal hope, hallelujah.”
Other celebrites who participated in the event included Leonardo DiCaprio, George Strait, George Clooney, Jamie Foxx, Karlie Kloss, Matt Lauer, Rob Lowe, Matthew McConaughey, Cher, Norah O’Donnell, Dennis Quaid, Julia Roberts, Kelly Rowland, Adam Sandler, Ryan Seacrest, Michael Strahan, Blake Shelton, Barbra Streisand, Oprah Winfrey, and Reese Witherspoon.

After President Barack Hussein Obama took office, he made a point of stating several times that America was not just a Christian nation anymore.
And, while that remains true to a certain extent, it is also true that the overwhelming majority, 75% of Americans, still proclaim themselves to be followers of Jesus Christ. And even beyond that, 92% of Americans still believe in God.
What is amazing to me, though, is how, American Christianity is constantly attacked on all fronts: militarily, culturally, and even within organized religion, itself.
From illegal immigration to abortion to homosexual “rights”, Americans who follow the teachings of Jesus Christ on these issues have been under fire by Liberals, who insist that they know more about what is in the Bible and what Christ says, or would say, about these topics, then those of us who actually read God’s Word.
Claiming to be wise, they became fools. – Romans 1:22
When you enter into a Facebook “discussion” with these “new Pharisees”, and you counter their arguments on these topics with Scripture, Liberals are initially slow to respond.
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, – 2 Timothy 3:16 ESV
Most Liberals will start “Googling” these topics, looking for any Scriptures that will substantiate their position.
There’s been many a time they have come back at me with Old Testament Scripture. It is then that I explain to them about the sacrifice that Christ made for us sinners, freeing Christians from Jewish Law and taking the punishment for our sins , creating a New Covenant by covering Christians through the shedding of His blood.
At that point in the “discussion”, there is a long pause, as they are trying to figure out a comeback.
The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.- 1 Corinthians 2:14
This misconception, which I have been trying to explain, involves Liberals’ belief that American Christians will not fight back against them and the things they want to say and do in our society.
If there’s one thing during all of the years of anti-Christian bias, which we have experienced during the Obama administration, and now, after Christian Americans helped elect American Businessman and Entrepreneur Donald J. Trump as the 45th President, that the Liberals should have learned, is the fact that Christian American Conservatives will fight back.
It is funny though…that when we begin fighting back, the Liberals have a tendency to label us as uncaring, mean , divisive, and intolerant as alluded to in the “Hand to Hand” Hurricane Relief Program last night.
Liberals react that way because internally, they are having a kicking and screaming temper tantrum, because they cannot get their way…as the days since November 8th, 2016 have plainly showed.
For Liberal Democrats to now attempt to use the God of Abraham as a Spokesperson and Arbiter against the actions and policies of President Trump, after turning their back on God for years, is a display of hypocrisy that would had made even the ancient Pharisees blush.
In fact, their desperation reminds me of a passage found in the New Testament,
22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ 23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’ – Matthew 7:22-23
One must always be careful…because when you point a finger at someone, there are always four pointing back at you.
