God has been deleted from the Democratic Party platform, CBN’s David Brody reports.

The Democrats’ 2008 platform included a paragraph on building a government that “stands up” for “working people” who are trying to reach their “God-given potential.” However, that paragraph has been re-written in the 2012 platform and now no longer makes reference to God.

“We gather to reclaim the basic bargain that built the largest middle class and the most prosperous nation on Earth – the simple principle that in America, hard work should pay off, responsibility should be rewarded, and each one of us should be able to go as far as our talent and drive take us,” the new paragraph reads, according to Brody.

The platform will be voted on by delegates Tuesday.
