Here is a short list of oxymorons: jumbo shrimp, safe abortion (someone will die), military intelligence.

And the newest contribution to the list I would like to submit from the American political scene: Christian Democrat.

From the party that endorsed abortion, sodomy, contraception and same-sex marriage, we have the newest insult toward the morally informed citizen -- the rejection of the mention of God in the platform. I hear a voice of protest from the liberal ranks saying, "Not so, that vote was reversed." Now it’s my turn to protest. After three audibly clear No votes the moderator announced the opposite decision, to which he received loudly disapproving boos. After summarily expunging the name of God, the moderator ignored the louder cry. Not with sensitivity toward the Divine Creator but as an expedient effort for damage control in a close contest and the "tooth fairy" forbid that any radical Muslim be offended.

So much for the "fear of God," i.e. the wisdom which party leaders are so severely lacking.

"I tell you whoever acknowledges Me before Men, the Son of Man will acknowledge him before the angels of God, but he who disowns me before men the Son of Man will disown before the angels of God." Luke 12:8.

"But as for me and my household we will serve the Lord." Josh. 24:15.
