WASHINGTON, Sept. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Former presidential candidate Gary Bauer said Values Voters and people of faith were sent "an unambiguous message when 'God' was removed from the Democratic Party platform, essentially communicating Obama's left wing, secular vision for America."

The chairman of the Campaign for Working Families observed: "The removal of the only reference to God from the Democratic Party platform is telling. Under Barack Obama the Democratic Party has become more secular and more hostile to faith-based voters. On issues ranging from the sanctity of life to traditional marriage, Obama's Democratic Party has embraced positions contrary to the values of heartland America, values rooted in our Judeo-Christian traditions and expressed in our founding documents. Values voters will respond in November."
