HuffPo Scolds Dems for ‘Caving’ On Reinsertion of God and Jerusalem Into Platform

It might appear odd, but Huffington Post seems to be scolding the Democrats for having “caved in” to pro-religion and pro-Israel forces in the Democrat Party for succeeding in having God and Jerusalem put back into the Democrat Party platform after they were removed earlier today.
