The more the American public sees Hillary Clinton and her coalition, the more they breathe a sigh of relief that Donald Trump was elected in 2016. Even the pastors in Clinton’s camp seem infected with lying tongue.
The Reverend Matthew Deuel of Winona Lake, Indiana’s Mission Point Community Church told CNN that Reverend Bill Shillady’s new book contains plagiarism. Rev. Shillady, who worked for Clinton’s campaign in 2016, apparently stole words from Deuel’s blog and put them in his forthcoming book Strong For a Moment Like This, according to Newsmax.
Here’s the evidence: In Deuel’s blog post, which was originally published in March of 2016, the Reverend wrote: “For the disciples and Christ followers in the first century, Good Friday represented the day that everything fell apart. All was lost. The momentum and hope of a man, claiming to be the Son of God, the Messiah who was supposed to change everything, had been executed.”
Rev. Shillady’s email submission to Clinton, which was published by CNN, contains the following lines: “For the disciples and Christ’s followers in the first century, Good Friday represented the day that everything fell apart. All was lost. The momentum and hope of a man claiming to be the Son of God, the Messiah who was supposed to change everything, had been executed.”
In the same blog post, Deuel wrote: “Death will be shattered. Hope will be restored. Redemption is coming. But first, we must live through the darkness and seeming hopelessness of Friday.”
Rev. Shillady’s email says: “Death will be shattered. Hope will be restored. But first, we must live through the darkness and seeming hopelessness of Friday.”
Rev. Deuel claims that Rev. Shillady never contacted him, nor cited his blog in his email submissions. If that is the case, then Rev. Shillady is definitely guilty of plagiarism.
Rev. Dr. Bill Shillady has known Clinton for 15 years. According to him, Clinton received the Good Word every day on the campaign trail and imbued her political message with the lessons that she received from the United Methodist church and its traditions.
A fluff piece published by Philly.com claims that Rev. Shillady is not only a large influence on Clinton but that her “deep-seated” faith helped her get through her defeat in November.
Article writer Kristin E. Holmes mused that Clinton could become a Protestant preacher.
All of these gushing articles about Clinton’s faith seem to overlook her unsavory history. On election night, Clinton apparently got drunk and shouted obscenities at everyone around her. The word “meltdown” has been used to describe this particular incident.
During the campaign itself, Mrs. Clinton did not heed Jesus’ warning in the Book of Matthew (“Judge not, that ye not be judged”) when she characterized Trump’s supporters as a “Basket of deplorables.”
Clinton’s supposed Christian faith also did not stop her from saying in 2015: “Deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs, and structural biases have to be changed.” This was directed at Christians who do not support the state-sponsored murder of the unborn.
Clinton’s Christian faith also did not preclude an alliance with George Soros, a financier who consistently supports anti-Christian causes throughout the world, and Saudi Arabia, a Sunni Muslim country that does not take in Christian refugees and does not let Christians build churches or outwardly celebrate their religion.
Hillary Clinton does not seem to take her Christianity very seriously, and Rev. Shillady seems to have a problem with the truth.
