Democrats open faith-filled convention with prayer

From the outset, the Obama campaign incorporated religious imagery to build a cult of personality around its candidate. In New Hampshire in January, for example, the Obama told an audience that:
"a beam of light will come down upon you, you will experience an epiphany . . . and you will suddenly realize that you must go to the polls and vote for Obama."
In that vein, the Democrat Convention recently opened with an (religious) invocation of all things. The Associated Press hit the nail right on the head with this comment:
"Four years ago, such a scene would have been unthinkable at a Democratic National Convention."
At the convention, "young Muslim women in headscarves sat near older African-American women in their finest Sunday hats."

This is the most obvious feint to Bible thumpers I've ever seen. Isn't it the Democrat Party who unleashed the rabid anti-Christian campaign on America through their surrogates at the ACLU, CAIR and La Raza? Shouldn't the ACLU be standing up for the rights of these Muslim women not to be offended by the prayers of Christians and Jews?

Why would Obama invoke religion at his convention? His mentor Saul Alinsky, taught his followers not to be "Jerry Rubin and Abbie Hoffman with their long hair and hippie attitudes. … He said they should cut their hair, they should shave their beards, they should get business suits." All this in order to mask one's true ideology. This tidbit from Investors Business Daily gives us some insight:
"Obama calls his years as an Alinskyesque community organizer in Chicago "the best education I ever had, and where I learned the true meaning of my Christian faith." But as radicalism expert Richard Lawrence Poe has noted, "Camouflage is key to Alinsky-style organizing. In organizing coalitions of black churches in Chicago, Obama caught flak for not attending church himself. He became an instant churchgoer." Indeed, Alinsky believed in sacrificing ethics and morals for the great cause. "Ethical standards must be elastic to stretch with the times," Alinsky wrote in his last book, "Rules for Radicals," adding that "all values are relative in a world of political relativity." Published a year before Alinsky's death in 1972, "Rules for Radicals" includes a dedication in which he gives "an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical . . . who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer."
