Hillary Clinton’s making her way out of her Chardonnay ‘Whine’ Cellar to the presidency through the pulpit.
Clinton must have taken her longtime pastor Methodist Minister Bill Shillady at his word when he compared her possible return to politics to “Jesus Christ’s resurrection.”
Shillady’s book, for which she agreed to write the forward, has been pulled by its publishers because it plagiarized the work of another minister. But Hillary who’s out there on a book tour says she cannot “absolve” women who didn’t vote for her in last November’s presidential election:
“While a majority of women voted for Clinton, she failed to win a majority of white women — who voted instead for Trump. It is clear from the book that Clinton, whose campaign never missed an opportunity to remind voters that she would be the first female president if she won, was stung by this particular data point. (Adam Shaw, Breitbart News, Sept. 12, 2017)
“These people were looking for absolution that I just couldn’t give,” she wrote. “We all have to live with the consequences of our decisions.”
It is traditionally pastors and priests who give “absolution”, and career politicians like Clinton that many find it impossible to “absolve”.
Nor is Clinton living with the consequences of the decisions of some 60 million who voted for Donald Trump as president.
Frightening to think it was not just an idea from Shillady, who compared the results of the outcome of the 2016 election to Good Friday, that Clinton might go for a “miracle” win as a pastor running for president in 2020.
Good Friday will forever be the day that Jesus was crucified and connected in no way whatsoever to the defeat of Hillary Clinton.
“How in the name of all that is holy could anyone, let alone an ordained Christian pastor, compare Hillary Clinton’s return to politics to the Resurrection? (Canada Free Press, Aug. 13, 2017)
But in a Progressive/Left world left seething with hatred ever since Clinton’s stunning defeat, anything becomes possible.
Hillary Clinton had already declared herself her own religion way back when.
“Last fall, the former Newsweek editor Kenneth Woodward revealed that Clinton told him in 1994 that she thought “all the time” about becoming an ordained Methodist minister. She asked him not to write about it, though: “It will make me seem much too pious.” The incident perfectly captures Clinton’s long campaign to modulate—and sometimes obscure—expressions of her faith”. (The Atlantic, Aug. 6, 2017)
It was certainly less than pious when she stated in April of 2016 that an “unborn person has no constitutional rights”.
“We have a long history of lay preachers in the United Methodist Church,” says Shillady. (The Atlantic)
“Since the election, “I think her faith is stronger,” Shillady added. “I haven’t noticed anything different, except that I think she is more relaxed than I’ve ever seen her.”
“Maybe after all these years of hard-scrabble politics, Clinton is finally becoming a more straightforward version of herself: a woman whose fondest ambition is teaching scripture in church.”
With the stench of Benghazi, destined to follow her the rest of her days, missing emails, lies and the trail of mysterious deaths that seem to shadow her, Hillary Clinton would make as lousy a pastor as she would a president.
It’s been nine months since Election 2016. None of the poison she spews has changed the fact that Donald Trump is president.
It’s high time for Hillary Clinton to come out of her Chardonnay ‘Whine’ Cellar.
