Hillary Clinton: The Bible is ‘the biggest influence on my thinking’
Life Site News ^ | June 18, 2014 | Ben Jonson

Posted on 06/18/2014 4:37:21 PM PDT by NYer

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Hillary Clinton, a likely 2016 Democratic presidential candidate who supports abortion-on-demand and redefining marriage, says her thought process is “guided” by the Bible more than any other book or “influence.”

The former first lady made her comments during an interview with the New York Times Sunday Book Review on June 11. When asked about her favorite book, she said, “At the risk of appearing predictable, the Bible was and remains the biggest influence on my thinking. I was raised reading it, memorizing passages from it, and being guided by it. I still find it a source of wisdom, comfort, and encouragement.”

However, just last week, she told NPR host Terry Grossu that “too many people [who oppose redefining marriage] believe they have a direct line to the Divine."

Rob Schwarzwalder, senior vice president at Family Research Council, told LifeSiteNews that he wished Mrs. Clinton consistently allowed the Bible to shape her worldview. “Mrs. Clinton is right that the Bible is a source of ‘wisdom, comfort and encouragement.’ However, it is also God’s revelation of Himself in Jesus Christ and of His unchanging moral commands regarding the way we live our lives and the values we should espouse,” he said. “We can hope and pray that Mrs. Clinton will recognize the latter, even as she affirms the former.”

“At the risk of appearing predictable, the Bible was and remains the biggest influence on my thinking. I was raised reading it, memorizing passages from it, and being guided by it." 

Throughout her four decades in the public spotlight, Clinton has tirelessly promoted abortion-on-demand as a fundamental “human right” and the acceptance of homosexual behavior at home and abroad.

She was a decades-long friend and onetime patient of Dr. William F. Harrison, an Arkansas doctor who boasted of committing at least 20,000 abortions. She has referred to herself as ardently “pro-choice.”

She campaigned for her husband to sign executive orders repealing the Mexico City Policy, which barred U.S. funding of abortion advocacy around the world, mere days after his inauguration. She pressured the United Nations to define abortion as a human right at the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development and the Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing in 1995.

In his second term, President Clinton said that he and Hillary prayed together before he vetoed the national partial birth abortion ban. His successor, George W. Bush, would sign the measure into law in 2003.

Hillary, as junior U.S. senator from New York, voted against ending partial birth abortion, the Unborn Victims of Violence Act, parental notification if a minor crosses state lines to have an abortion, and a Constitutional marriage protection amendment. She supported embryonic stem cell research.

As President Obama's secretary of state, she led the Obama administration's international push to normalize homosexual behavior worldwide, placing religious objections to homosexuality in the same category as honor killings and widow burning.

Clinton, who has said she is “really in awe” of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, is expected to be the frontrunner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.

This reminds me of the scene in the Shawshank Redemption, where the Tim Robbins character hides the rock pick he used for his escape in a hollowed out bible. Why? Because he knew that was the one place the hypocritical warden wouldn't look.

Nobody stand near her. A lighting bolt is coming. How can this “person” lie so blatantly? And the MSM goes all bobble head saying “Yup yup yup” she’s cool. Makes me mad enough to spit - if I knew how. Probably a good reason to start.

“At the risk of appearing predictable, the Bible was and remains the biggest influence on my thinking. I was raised reading it, memorizing passages from it, and being guided by it."

She didn't specify which Bible. The Jefferson Bible perhaps?

"The Jefferson Bible, or The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth as it is formally titled, was a book constructed by Thomas Jefferson in the latter years of his life by cutting and pasting with a razor and glue numerous sections from the New Testament as extractions of the doctrine of Jesus. Jefferson's condensed composition is especially notable for its exclusion of all miracles by Jesus and most mentions of the supernatural, including sections of the four gospels which contain the Resurrection and most other miracles, and passages indicating Jesus was divine."

It should also be noted that Hillary played soccer for her high school team back in the late 1950's....(before soccer ever came to this country)

...and that she was named after Sir Edmund Hillary, who was never known at the time Hillary was hatched.........

“All this was inspired by the principle - which is quite true in itself - that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.” - Adolf Hitler Mein Kampf

If a Republican said this, that the Bible was the biggest influence on him, the media would all jump to accuse him of being an extreme right-wing fanatic.

But when Obama or Hillary say it, they know it’s just a convenient lie, so they applaud and pretend to believe it.

She neglected to mention that she takes the George Costanza approach. She thinks about what the Bible would say then does the opposite.

This is a *wink*wink* to try to attract Christian voters while the devoted left will just let her say whatever it takes to win.

How, really, is this different from George Bush saying Jesus was his favorite philosopher? The left just took off after him for so absurd (to them) a comment.

The problem is that everybody automatically assumes she is speaking of the Holy Bible, when in fact it is Anton LeVay’s Bible that she holds dear. Earlier on there were stories about her connection with covens and dark masses - she has also been reported to be a new age priestess.

Exactly. Just like when Obama claimed to be against gay marriage (nod/wink). They knew he was lying.

I’m trying to think of the characters in the Bible this witch modeled her life after. It sure wasn’t the main character.

I’m thinking members of the civilizations around Noah and at Sodom and Gamorah. Toss in a little Roman tax collector, a harlot, Jezebel... pretty soon Hillary’s character comes into focus.

LOL, roger that. It was my first thought as well. Don't get too close to her, you might get stuck too.

When Billy Jeff was in the White Hut, I had a friend who was stationed on the Carl Vinson. Billy Jeff and the Hildebeast came on board. He said he got to talk briefly with the Hildebeast, and said she was a very charming woman, but charming in a sinister kind of way. He also said he kept his mouth shut, but was raging inside. I think Satan charmed Eve in the Garden of Eden too, but how is that working out for the world?

The Bible is ‘the biggest influence on my thinking’...?

At least she's telling the truth, she read the bible, thought about what she read, and then did everything it told her not to do and nothing it told her to do.

I'm not her judge, God is, but it occurs to me that the scripture passage, "God is not mocked, for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap" (Galations ch 6 v 7) fits her to a T. Unless she accepts, or has accepted, Jesus Christ as Lord and believes in her heart that God has raised Him from the dead (Romans ch 10 v 9) she is pretty far along on her way to eternity in a horrible place that even gentle and loving Jesus called "the lake of fire".

I'm certainly not hoping that she ends up in hell, God forbid that I would want that horror for her no matter how repugnant her sins may be. But thanks be to God,I'm not the one who will determine where her undying soul will spend eternity.
