The Democratic Delegates Vote for a Godless America

Per the LA Times, here's the text corresponding to the vote:

"I, uh, I guess I'll do that one more time," Villaraigosa said after a second vote of delegates in the Time Warner Cable Arena resulted in equally loud "ayes" and "nos." 

"You've got to rule, and then you've got to let them do what they're gonna do," a woman standing to his left could be heard saying in a feed carried by C-SPAN. 

After a third attempt, Villaraigosa declared that the amendments had passed.
"In the opinion of the chair, two-thirds have voted in the affirmative," he said, drawing large boos and shouts of objections. 

 A local Los Angeles (democratic) political commentator had his sound engineer measure the how loudly the three votes measured, and here were his results:
  • He measured the first vote 4 for the yays and 3 for the nays. No 2/3 required majority there. 
  • The second vote measured an even 7 to 7. The measure doesn't pass with that vote either.
  • Then when a woman on stage encouraged the stunned looking Villaraigosa to just rule and let the delegates do whatever they're gonna do, he ruled that the the third vote passed with the yays being 2/3 louder when in fact the yays measured 10 and the nays actually louder at 11.
My personal position on political parties is to look to Jesus and wait for His kingdom. But how stunning that with the world watching and looking, the majority of the democratic delegates vote God out of their platform and reject Jerusalem's position as being the capital of Israel, and then refuse to re-include them in their platform. And then to appease the powers who wanted to save face and pretend that the majority of delegates are opposed to a godless society, Villaraigosa openly lies in front of their world, dismisses the procedure they just agreed to and with a complete lack of integrity rules that the majority agreed to change the platform, only to have the majority of delegates in turn boo his ruling to reinstate God into their platform.
