A big change at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte. President Obama will not accept his party’s nomination at Bank of America Stadium Thursday night. Instead, the threat of bad weather has forced the speech inside Time Warner Cable Arena.

WWAY’s Cacky Catlett and Kevin Wuzzardo report from the arena with reaction from delegates and some famous faces about the move.

    I thought you libs claimed these dudes were deists? Maybe you should check in with your handlers. Jefferson approved $500 of fed money to donate to a church for the purpose of handing out bibles to Indians. Not much of an “agnostic”. So, John, please try to know facts before posting. And the first Amendment really reads, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech..”. Did you get that prohibiting part?

  • Guest2020 says:

    The first amendment was meant to keep the government out of religion, not the other way around. When I go to the polls to vote on a candidate or vote on an issue I vote according to my conscience like everyone else. Atheists do it, agnostics do it, people of other religions do it. But, apparently Christians are to leave their faith at home or in the pew when they vote.

  • Guest2020 says:

    Thomas Jefferson acknowledge the existence of a Creator when he wrote The Declaration of Independence. And technology and science do not in any way negate anything in the Constitution. The same limits against the federal government should exist today as they did when the Constitution was written. You twist the first amendment to suit your needs. In regards to religion, the first amendment reads as such: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;” That means that Congress cannot establish an official religion. And Congress cannot prohibit the free exercise of religion. No where does it say that no laws can be made based on religion. The Constitution and the bill of rights were written to limit the federal government. They were not written to limit the citizens.

    I’m so disgusted by people saying religion and politics don’t mix. In case everyone has forgotten, the Pledge of Allegiance is ONE NATION UNDER GOD, our money is IN GOD WE TRUST, our forefathers got sound doctrinal advice from Pastors and Men of God before making ANY decisions in the Government in the early days, now that’s just to name a few. SEPARATION is what’s killing this country, In the Bible in the end times all nations will rise up against Isreal and ONLY GOD can help us then. If the country could turn back to God and live according to the Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth (BIBLE) we would see the best CHANGE this country has EVER seen.

  • John says:

    Your facts are not entirely true. James Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin were all agnostic. It was also written going on 300 years ago… With technology and science progressing the way it has we can safely say no one knows 100% how the universe was created or what happens when we die… Also through technology and the science of literary scholars we can now determine that the Bible is not the inspired word of God. So… if there was a all mighty God, and he left his only published works as proof and “Testament” of his existence how then can we disprove it with such accuracy? One thing is for certain about religion is for the last 2,000 years 80% of all wars waged were in the name of religion. Our government was not founded as a Christian nation but as a nation where individuals could practice there own religion however unorthodox without persecution. We should leave people’s beliefs in their homes and places of worship. It has no place in our legislation, policies, or government… My last shred of proof is the first amendment to the constitution written by the same men you called christian… “There shall be no law made based on the establishment of religion”… enough said.

    Don’t worry about the end times. Let people believe what they want. Religion should be left out of politics. As a Christian we are told that spreading God’s word is a must. HOWEVER, not everyone wants to be converted!! Get off your salt box. God will deal w/ the corruption-such things must happen-read the WHOLE bible! Put your faith on GOD and carry on!

    When you can not get a decisive vote on adding God and Jerusalem back to the party’s platform after what was three failed attempts , you have serious issues. It is very disturbing how the leaders of this Godless party responded.This incident will be a defining moment for this party and should be used to reveal the soul of this party. Obama is aligned with some evil elements in his party but what do you expect from a President , who was influenced by Frank Marshall Davis , Roberto Unger and Andrew Said. Anti-semitic feelings run strong with this President , despite his tiresome rhetoric. The tensions betweeen the U.S and Israel have never been higher because they know Obama’s true beliefs concerning the Jewish state. Obama proposed the pre-67 borders and has allowed Iran to expedite the building of their war machine. One of the omens concerning Obama was when the open mike caught Obama leaning over towards the Russian Prime Minister Medevev and telling him he would have more leniency in his second term. This was the signal to the Middle East that his pro-Arab mentality approved of an unsettled region and allowed the Muslim Brotherhood to have a strong influence in the region. Obama is aligned with these elements in a covert manner. To the Democratic Jews , you must be the secular representation of the Jewish community because there is no way you can support this vile party.

    I am a registered as an Independent voter and I am ready to go to the ballot box and vote straight ticket Republican once again ! The Democratic ideology will have to change dramatically for me to ever give them consideration again. Obama is not one of us , regardless of party affiliation. The mainstream media made Obama and they will be the ones who can destroy his credibility but lack the courage.

    Religion and politics do not mix…period. Both should be kept separate and in no way integrated within each other. If you want to participate in politics, file for public office or at least vote. If you want to practice religion, go to church. Mixing the two results in one major cluster—-.

  • Justin America says:

    about half of the people in the arena voted a strong, loud No! We are not for; ” a government that stands up for the hopes, values and interests of working people, and gives everyone who is willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their God-given potential.” Also a strong loud no vote for; “Jerusalem is and will remain the Capital of Israel.” I believe after the sudden shock of hearing the words; work hard, God, Jerusalem and Israel, about half the secular humanist there started booing…. I mean who wants to work hard after all?

  • Erlkoenig says:

    I’d like to hear from the so called “anti-disenfranchisement” people. What do you think of the teleprompter dictating the outcome of the amendment vote as opposed to the people?

  • Guest1118 says:
