The Republican and Democratic Platforms: No Comparisons

FRC Action: Talk about night and day! It’s difficult to overstate just how fundamentally different the Republican and Democratic Party Platforms are from each other. For starters, there’s the fact that the GOP openly televises their platform drafting process on C-SPAN for all to see, while the Democrats do their drafting behind closed doors—fitting for a party led by a president whose “administration is one of the most secretive” in history.

On issue after issue, the Republican Platform is the one that possesses a moral ethic guided by an acknowledgment of a higher power and authority, which undergirds the framework of the document as a whole. This is clearly stated in the platform’s Preamble, which quotes the Declaration of Independence: “All are created equal, endowed by their Creator with inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

Yesterday, at the Republican National Convention, the party ratified the 2016 Republican Platform that included numerous victories for social conservatives to stand strong on life, marriage, and religious liberty. The Democrat Platform, which is pending final approval, has swung even farther to the extreme left on numerous issues. Here are some of the differences.

On the Redefinition of Marriage
Republicans condemn the Supreme Court’s ruling in Obergefell, and affirm marriage as the union of one man and one woman as the “cornerstone” of society which states have a right to recognize as such, and declares that “every child deserves a married mom and dad.” The Democrats celebrate “that recognized LGBT people…have the right to marry the person they love.”

On Abortion, Taxpayer Funding, and Religious Freedom
For the first time in history, the Democrats and their presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton have called for overturning the Hyde and Helms Amendments and call for federal taxpayers to fund abortion on demand at home, and even abroad. The Republicans “call for codification of the Hyde Amendment and its application across the government, including Obamacare.” In addition, the Democrat’s radical push for abortion coverage makes no exception even for religious organizations or conscience protections for doctors or nurses who object to abortion, and they insist on the repeal of the Mexico City policy to fund abortions in other nations. The Republicans insist on protecting “the rights of conscience of healthcare professionals, doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and organizations, especially the faith-based groups” and restoring the Mexico City policy.

On Planned Parenthood and the Selling of Baby Body Parts
The Democrats support Planned Parenthood by name. The Republicans, for the first time, call for the defunding of Planned Parenthood for committing abortions, selling baby parts, and deceiving women with faulty consent forms. They call on Congress to enact a ban on any sale of fetal body parts.

On Religious Freedom on Marriage
The Democrats call for federal civil rights protections for sexual orientation and gender identity, which would force religious businesses to acknowledge gay “weddings.” The Republicans twice call for the passage of the First Amendment Defense Act and sides with the rights of florists, bakers and especially adoption agencies who disagree with same-sex marriage.

On Sex Education
The Republicans call for increasing “sexual risk avoidance education” to promote abstinence from sex until marriage, while the Democrats want to promote “comprehensive sex ed” which encourages contraception use and risky sexual behavior for young children.

On Transgender Bathrooms
Democrats pledged to “improve school climates” to advance gay and transgender rights. Republicans called out the Obama administration’s Title IX bathroom edict, which “impose[s] a social and cultural revolution upon the American people by wrongly redefining sex discrimination to include sexual orientation or other categories” as “at once illegal, dangerous, and ignor[ing] privacy issues.”

On Terrorism
In the aftermath of the Orlando shooting, the Democrats singled out the LGBT community: “Democrats believe that LGBT rights are human rights and that American foreign policy should advance the ability of all persons to live with dignity, security, and respect regardless of who they are or who they love.” The Republicans named the enemy, “radical Islam” and condemned its attacks on all people: “Radical Islamic terrorism poses an existential threat to personal freedom and peace around the world. We oppose its brutal assault on all human beings, all of whom have inherent dignity. The Republican Party stands united with all victims of terrorism …”

On Social Engineering in the Military
The Democrats cheer the “repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and the inclusion of transgenders in the military, while the GOP insists “We reject the use of the military as a platform for social experimentation… Military readiness should not be sacrificed on the altar of political correctness.”
