Free Beacon: A senior policy adviser to Democratic senator Patty Murray (Wash.) said her office in the U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions does “not care about anti-Semitism,” according to two people who attended the meeting.

The HELP committee is currently weighing the nomination of Ken Marcus as assistant secretary for civil rights at the Department of Education. Marcus has been the target of an aggressive campaign waged by leading anti-Israel groups seeking to derail his nomination.

Marcus has worked to combat the boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) movement on college campuses and is the founder of the Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law, a pro-Israel group. more …

Opinion: In the 2012 Democratic national convention, the party booed God and Jerusalem three times before adding it to their platform:

It therefore seems perfectly logical that a senior adviser to Patty Murray on the HELP committee told Stern the committee does not care a bit about anti-Semitism anywhere.

“We don’t care about anti-Semitism in this office,” Murray’s senior adviser said. “We care about transgenders, we care about blacks, we care about Hispanics, we care about gays, we care about lesbians, we care about the disabled.”

Is it then a mystery that 55% of Democrats (here) claim to be Christian? The question can only be answered by knowing to which theology the 55% adhere. By far the largest percentage of Christians come from either Replacement Theology, or Covenantal denominations.

Replacement Theology: A system of theology that essentially teaches that the church has replaced Israel in God’s plan. Adherents of replacement theology believe the Jews are no longer God’s chosen people, and God does not have specific future plans for the nation of Israel.

Covenant Theology: A systematic set of doctrine as it is a framework for interpreting Scripture. It is usually contrasted with another interpretative framework for Scripture called “Dispensational Theology”. In Covenant theology the Church is Israel.

John MacArthur: “So to say it simply, to hold the view of amillennialists, called replacement theology, that the church replaces Israel in the promises of God, [is to say that] Israel as
God’s Elect is no longer God’s Elect since it is cancelled out.

To come up with this idea that there therefore is no real earthly Kingdom to fulfill those promises and that they are fulfilled in the spiritual life of the church both now and in heaven, you have to deny the nature of divine sovereign election.

You have to basically say that when God called Israel His Elect, and when God gave them unconditional, unilateral, irrevocable promises, He did not keep them, or He does not keep them, so that election doesn’t mean permanent election. [Rather] it might be temporary as
in the case of Israel.”

Romans 9:3-5 affirms that the covenants are to the Jew first.
