Howard Dean talks democratic faith
Republicans aren’t the only ones dragging faith and religion deeper into the American political landscape. Here’s DNC head Howard Dean talking about the Democratic party’s attempt to ‘increase its displays of religiosity’:
Faith is faith,he exclaimed. Faith in God is something that is common to human beings.
He was quick to acknowledge that secular people in the Democratic Party still have values.
Dean suggested that the diversity of the Democratic Party is one reason it does not address faith in the same way as Republicans, whom he accused of talking about a mono-religious country.
In this party, we have other values that matter to us. We talk about respecting everybody’s faith, he asserted.
Jews and Muslims matter a lot in our party.
He also said that all religions could overcome their differences to support a broader American vision.
