On Sunday, Chelsea Clinton, stumping for her pro-abortion mother, showed she has learned her lessons well from her parents, as she offered a Byzantine defense of Hillary Clinton’s supposed faith.
Chelsea Clinton, in an attempt to limn her mother as a religious person, told an audience at a fundraiser that the reason she left the Baptist Church as a child stemmed from the church’s discussion of abortion when she was six years old. She wheedled, “I find it quite insulting sometimes when people say to my mom, my dad or me . . . that they question our faith. I was raised in a Methodist church and I left the Baptist church before my dad did, because I didn’t know why they were talking to me about abortion when I was 6 in Sunday school — that’s a true story.”
Uh-oh. When a Clinton claims something is true, watch out for what else is in the bag.
Sure enough: “My mother is very deeply a person of faith. It is deeply authentic and real for my mother, and it guides so much of her moral compass, but also her life’s work.”
And: 'I recognized that there were many expressions of faith that I don’t agree with and feel [are] quite antithetical to how I read the Bible. But I find it really challenging when people who are self-professed liberals kind of look askance at my family’s history.”
Of course, one might ask just what Chelsea believes; her father attended Baptist Church, which is staunchly anti-abortion; her mother attended the Methodist church, which is pro-abortion, and Chelsea herself married Marc Mezvinsky, who is Jewish.
As far as Hillary Clinton’s supposed faith in God, this is the same woman who has championed the killing of babies at birth via partial-birth abortion, and still won’t condemn the procedure. As Hillary Clinton blustered in 2003 when she condemned GOP efforts to ban the procedure, calling them a waste of time, insisting that the time could be better spent in addressing other issues, “The Republican leadership has decided to spend its time working to criminalize a medical procedure that is used in very few cases and only when the health and safety of women are at stake … I find it deeply ironic that it is taking place in the month of March, Women’s History Month. Apparently some people believe that the purpose of Women’s History Month is to literally bring us back to a time in history when women had no choices.”
“My mother is very deeply a person of faith."
Hillary and God in the same sentence? Hillary celebrating Women’s History Month?
Tell that to the millions of little girls slaughtered through the gift of Roe V. Wade and the woman who ardently supports it.
