So, it wasn’t long ago — April 13, actually — that I watched the usual “Hillary is very religious” narrative begin again and asked whether that meant the churches had an ally in Hillary, against those voices who demand that faith be relegated to pews and homes, and put out of the public square:
Since Mrs. Clinton is now “officially running” for president, and the press is making a quick note of how important both her faith and its applications for social justice are to her, I expect to hear. . .that she believes there is certainly room within the public square for voices of the churches and people of faith…
Well, it seems Hillay is not so much in favor of faith in the public square, after all. Not if it interferes with paying homage to the source all-good and all-wisdom: abortion. Sooner or later, they all reveal their obeisance to the glad slaughter of innocents, upon which do feed their gods.
“Deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed” for the sake of giving women access to “reproductive health care and safe childbirth.” That’s the message Hillary Clinton delivered to the 2015 Women in the World Summit on Thursday, April 23.
Hmph. Seems to me perhaps Mrs. Clinton’s fealty to abortion is pretty “deep-seated” and kind of religious. I wonder if she’d like hearing that it ought to be changed…since deep-seated beliefs are fair game?
So, anyway, when Christians are being pushed from the public square, Hillary will not be defending them. Just in case you were wondering.
If you access the video at the link, you can listen to Mrs. Clinton carry on about how far women have come, and how much more needs to happen, because there are still women who are oppressed. Especially in some of the countries from which she and her family unapologetically accept financial contributions.
In a way, I guess that’s biblical right? By advocating for women while accepting money from places where they’re not allowed to drive — or leave the house without a male family member in attendance — her left hand barely sees what her right hand is doing.
I hope they do keep talking. I should like to be able to stop talking or thinking about this over-celebrated mediocrity. And her completely unremarkable daughter, too.
Last thought: If Hillary is anywhere near as smart as she wants everyone to believe she is, she will heed the shot the press is putting across her bow and get out while the getting is good. If she leaves now, they’ll allow her to go with her hagiography mostly intact, and she’ll be able to parlay her connections into taking on noble-sounding work. She’ll become the head of the Red Cross, or something like that, and continue to live with influence, in the style to which she is accustomed. But the presidency she has salivated for all these years is not to be hers.
As I stated here a week ago, Warren is in the wings, and she is every bit as nasty as Hillary, less guardedly radical than Hillary, and just as dependably faithful to the slaughter, but much less baggage for the press to carry.
Ed Morrissey has more.
