After Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 general election in such a devastating manner, many folks on both the Left and Right wondered what she would do next. Some people speculated that she would try to run again in 2020, but that doesn’t seem to be in the cards anymore.
According to The Atlantic, Hillary Clinton now wants to preach. Her pastor, Bill Shillady confirmed this news when he said that he and Clinton were talking at his book signing. This isn’t the only time this news has come up. Last fall, Kenneth Woodward, formerly of Newsweek, said Clinton told him in 1994 that she thought about becoming a minister “all the time.”
Clinton’s conversation with Woodward took a crazy turn when she told Woodward that she didn’t want the Newsweek writer to cover her hidden goal of becoming a minister. According to Clinton, she didn’t want the news to become public because, “It will make me seem much too pious.”
The ironic thing about all of this is how Clinton has metaphorically spit in the face of religion time and time again. Clinton’s 2015 keynote address to the Women in the World Summit displays this.
During the speech, Clinton says: “Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will. And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs, and structural biases have to be changed.”
She was talking, of course, about the reproductive rights of women. In the speech, she embraces the idea of abortion and claims that all women should have the right to abort their unborn children, and have access to whatever other reproductive resources they might need.
In a report by The Christian Post, former Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) said it best: “Hillary Clinton and the Left want to socially engineer everyone to adhere to their left-wing ideology even if it’s in violation of a person’s sincerely held religious convictions.”
Jindal also stated, “Hillary Clinton said that people who are pro-life have to change our religious beliefs. That’s crazy talk. This is why the fight for religious freedom is so important. Our religious beliefs are between us and God, not us and Hillary Clinton.”
It appears that instead of following the scriptures, Clinton would rather pander to women who want to hear “pro-abortion” statements.
The former presidential candidate also has ties to some very unsavory organizations, such as the Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good. The group is funded by George Soros and endorsed by both Clinton and her former campaign chairman, John Podesta.
Despite the name, the group often takes left-wing ideas and frames them in a religious context, but fails to acknowledge any parts of the scriptures that contradict the Democrats’ ideology. It is almost as if these groups serve as beacons for people who want to hear left-wing propaganda instead of religious teachings.
Hillary Clinton has said that she wants to preach. Would you attend a church where Clinton was the minister?
If Clinton has shown the world anything, it’s that it is not a good fit for her to serve God in the position of a minister. She throws religious ideology out the window if it conflicts with her political message, and that is unacceptable.
The followers of her “church,” if her desire comes to fruition, would likely be an assembly of progressives who claim to be religious, but their faith is in the Democrat Party and the Progressive ideology.
