Holy Hillary: I Always Prayed
NewsMax.com ^ | 1/21/05 | Carl Limbacher

Posted on 01/21/2005 11:36:39 AM PST by kattracks

Borrowing a page from President Bush, New York Sen. Hillary Clinton told a Boston audience this week that prayer has always played a meaningful role in her life - though accounts from her days as a student radical suggest that's probably not true.

"I've always been a praying person," Clinton told a crowd of more than 500, including many religious leaders, at Boston's Fairmont Copley Plaza. According to the Boston Globe, the newly religious former first lady "invoked God more than half a dozen times" as she urged society to accommodate religious people who "live out their faith in the public square."

Though she was raised as a Methodist, Clinton's open embrace of God, along with her insistence that she's "always been a praying person," has to come as a shock to those who remember her college days.

Back then, Clinton was far more likely to be seen reading not the Bible but the writings of Marx and Mao - and had close associations with unabashed Communists, to whom the mere mention of religion was heresy.

One was Robert Treuhaft, who, as noted in the late Barbara Olson's Hillary biography, "Hell to Pay," had "dedicated his entire legal career to advancing the agenda of the Soviet Communist Party."

In 1972 Treuhaft offered the future senator a summer internship at the Universiy of California's Berkeley campus. Clinton accepted, immersing herself in Truehaft's brand of radical Stalinism. When she returned, she was, according to Olson, "a budding Leninist."

If Sen. Clinton was "a praying person" back then, she must have kept it well concealed from her radical mentors.

I believe this. She has alsays prayed that she doesn't get caught. Now, just whom she prays to might be up for discussion.

The Clintons had a lot of love, if not prayer, in their earlier days. Hillary loved Bill, and Bill loved Bill.

Which of the three liberal gods does she pray to? Gaia the earth godess, the left-wing homosexual/gender-neutral Jesus, or Allah?

It's is interesting how things are playing out. I suspect this is mostly political positioning but we can hope that substance will eventually follow form. Is it possible faith will be mimicked before being realized?

A praying person? Sure ... but to what deity? She "invoked God" more than half a dozen times...? As in "God-d#$%"?

What's sad about the whole thing is she's got 4 years to convince people she's Mother Theresa and some morons out there are going to believe it.

So typical of Hillary! - she sticks her finger up in the wind and sees which way the political winds are blowing and then starts her pandering...... We need to keep track of all this stuff as "ammo" for the 2008 election!

She wants the White House enough to lie about her relationship with God?

Don't stand near her on a golf course!

Clinton accepted, immersing herself in Truehaft's brand of radical Stalinism. When she returned, she was, according to Olson, "a budding Leninist.

There is no doubt who she worships "Stalin" and "Lenin".

Variation on an old joke:

Hillary: God, will I go to hell for praying?

God: No, my child, of course not..

Hillary: Good. Then I pray that Bill drops dead...

I have no doubt Hillary is trying to portray herself as a neo-holy roller, nor that she is a devout socialist, but this Newsmax article is very weak.

This article should be supported by quotes from Clinton's associates and Treuhaft himself, not Barbara Olson in her book. This looks like something written by a college freshman.

I'm glad to hear Hillary is a 'praying person', maybe those prayers will benefit her when she explains to King Jesus just what exactly she meant when she assaulted Dick Morris way back in Arkansas, screaming at him and calling him an 'F.J.B.'?
