Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) released a new scathing campaign ad Thursday, slamming Democrats for striking all mentions of "God" from their official platform during the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte this week. The ad features footage of DNC delegates enthusiastically voting not to include "God" in the 2012 Democratic platform.

"Three times they said no to God," the ad states.

The ad begins with former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland saying, "I am here to attest and affirm that our faith and belief in God is central to the American story and informs the values we've expressed in our party's platform."

The shot then cuts to Los Angeles Mayor and 2012 DNC chair Antonio Villaraigosa, who tells "all the delegates opposed" to the measure to say "no".

A large portion of the delegates can be heard screaming, "No!"

"Let me do that again," Villaraigosa says. "All those delegates opposed, say no."

"No!" the crowd screams, even louder than the first time, waving their arms in protest.

Then, looking a little surprised, the Los Angeles mayor asks for one final vote. The delegation again hollered "No!" just as noisy as before, some rising out of their seats to add extra emphasis. Despite the divided vote, Democrats 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 party also reinstated wording that mentions Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

"It's embarrassing, it's stupid," Democratic strategist Paul Begala says in the video, followed by various shots of political pundits condemning the vote.

"Are those your values?" the ad asks.

It is written in the Bible - Deny me before men and I shall deny you before my Father. Of course this is paraphrased, but I wouldn't want to be any of them whom say no to God.

They're not saying "no" to God. They're saying "yes" to the separation of church and state, and thus saying "yes" to religious freedom. Everyone should be able practice his or her own religion, or lack thereof, without any one belief being held above any other by the government.

  The passage that appears below, written by Paul the Apostle nearly 2000 years ago, is remarkably up to date. If people reject God, His guidance, and the way of escape through His Son Jesus, the results are bad for individuals and society and will end in judgement.  The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities — his eternal power and divine nature — have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles. Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator — who is forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them. (Romans 1:18-32)

Long live Communism then, and man becoming "God" because someone has to take God's place.
