Former Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard recently joined Fox News’ Kayleigh McEnany in discussing the continuous exclusion of God from society. Gabbard shared her reasons for leaving the Democratic Party, stating that many of its members have adopted an attitude of “self-importance” by believing they are almost God-like in their attempts to control people’s lives.
She stated, “This erosion of this spiritual foundation of our country is a direct consequence of those who are trying to erase God from just about every facet of our public lives.”
Gabbard emphasized that attacks on religious individuals and erasing God from public life are significant driving factors behind her decision. To put it simply, she proposed that the lack of a spiritual foundation in the country is a result of those attempting to strip any mention or recognition of God from its society.
The former representative believes this has had a detrimental effect on families, children, communities, and policy makers alike. She believes there is power in coming together through religion and allowing it to serve as a moral compass for guiding humanity towards solutions for various issues our nation faces today.

The plight for religious freedom has been continuously highlighted over recent years as Democrats have become increasingly viewed as hostile towards God and faith. Joy Ann Reid, an MSNBC anchor even went as far as claiming Americans are being “held hostage” by a “far-right Christian court” due to the Supreme Court’s rulings which often favor religious institutions. Similarly, Iowa’s lone congressional Democrat Rep. Cindy Axne mocked Christians during an out-of-state campaign event with a far-left activist group. Noting these issues, celebrated Christian pastor Franklin Graham denounced the total absence of God in the Democratic National Convention and called on Americans to bring God back into public life once again.
Tulsi Gabbard’s decision to leave the Democratic Party was one based off principle instead of convenience – demonstrating how deeply rooted her beliefs were surrounding religious liberty and rights for all citizens regardless race or faith. Furthermore, her stance showcases how essential it is to protect those fundamental rights which form part of our nation’s spiritual foundation and cultural identity.
