Her Cross to Bear (NY State's Junior Senator now sports religious jewelry)
NY Daily News ^ | October 17, 2006 | Ben Smith

Posted on 10/17/2006 12:13:00 PM PDT by NYer

I'm not sure when this started, but a crucifix cross* appears to have become a regular part of Hillary Clinton's wardrobe.

She wore a gold one July 20, for a speech criticizing advertising directed at children. No picture available.) And she wore the diamond-studded one pictured above to the News last week. A Google Images search doesn't seem to turn up any others, though whenever you think you've noticed something new about Clinton, her aides usually produce rock-solid evidence that it has always been thus.

Clinton's Christianity, while never exactly lapsed, has rarely been forefront; noticing the jewelry doesn't strike me as (quite as) frivolous as reporting on her hairstyle. (He said defensively.)

Is it, perhaps, a sign that her faith may be a bit more in the foreground as 2008 approaches?

*Commenters have politely alerted me that a crucifix is a cross with a representation of that guy -- what's his name again? -- attached.

UPDATE: She's also wearing a cross in this lovely 2001 shot, and several others over the years.

That was TOTALLY uncalled for!

If they said that about Muhammad, his psychotic devotees would burn down New York City.

Good thing she has no image in a mirror, she'd have to recoil in fear if her eyes actually looked upon the Cross.

Probably something like working in a nuclear lab for whatever poor staffer has to put that on her neck

She's trying to appeal to the "religious right".

For some she may be appealing. For others she is VERY transparent. I wouldn't vote her in for a dog catcher.

EVERYTHING this bitch does is to deceive.....

She, her party and supporters have focused on the destruction of America.

Her pretty pink pant suit, makeup, jewelery, and draft dodging, white trash, impeached, rapist husband with his tiny bend dick won't change that....

This stuff to get the vote is so offensive.

When you read Gary Aldrich's Unlimited Access, and read how the Clintons mocked Christmas with decorating their tree with condoms, and other sex related stuff, it just seems so pretentious

Ping!

See what I mean! This is a major strategy of the Left for the '08 elections. Let's defang it. Lets nip it in the bud. Every blog should be on top of this

I think a serious essay documenting the empty efforts of the left to "appear religious in advance of the '08 elections' is needed.

Stories on "green evangelicals"...Hillary, of all people, preching to her constituents about Jesus and the tenants of Christianity. Barack Obama's book. Harold Ford Jrs commercials from within a church, and the 10 commandments on the back. he also claims to be pro-life now, (after, ahem voting against the partial birth abortion ban several times).

Ive seen "religious left" appearing almost a year agou (right about the same time I've seeen the first media reports on "the religious left".

Their campaign is going to be very deep and relentless. they have UNLIMITED support from the main stream media on this farse to appear religious. We got to keep a running record of these things...How their references to god will exponentially increase.

I expect it all to peak at the DNC convention with a choir and Gospel music ringing out

Prayers must be working. Don't stop praying. There might still be time for all sinners to repent.



If we are all thieves on our own cross, will we remain boastful of our sins and demand salvation? Or penitently defend innocence and beg God remember us?

On this you are absolutely right. The Demonrats are visibly stumbling around for a method to defang religion so that they may be empowered to attempt to destoy religious resistance to their evil agenda.

If it isn't blessed, it's just another piece of adornment.

~Sort of like carrying an umbrella full of holes.

I'll take a Benedictine blessing on my stuff any day. I'll give her the benefit of a doubt. Maybe she's changed.

And a pentagram as well, autographed by Hubbard.

Don't laugh. Hubbard and Mahony have both wratched up their LEM programs after receiving the final blessing at last November's USCCB meeting. In last week's edition of The Evangelist (the diocesan newspaper of the Albany RC Diocese), a full page was devoted to Catholic Lay pariticipation. It featured a photograph of approximately 25 lay people who are somewhere along their 2 year training program to become Lay Ecclesial Ministers. Hubbard began implementing this long before its approval. Twenty years ago, he appointed a nun to run one of the more remote parishes. The USCCB blessing simply translates into major growth. The majority of LEMs being assigned are women. The priests of the diocese are slowly evolving into nothing more than sacramental ministers. And Hubbard plans to expand this program even more! He is still 6 years away from retirement. As bad as things are here (constant church and school closings) - you can only imagine what will be left for his successor. And that individual, assuming he is more orthodox (could he possibly be less?) will be confronted with a reverse dilemna. Should he attempt to re-introduce some modicum of orthodox catholicism, he will be met with pitch fork wielding femal LEMs who will not give up their positions of power.

As for the pentagram, the Albany Times Union ran a full front page article on Fr. Dr. Richard Vosko and his magnificent work of 'updating' Catholic Churches across the country and around the world. The accompanying photo of him showed a man wearing a golf shirt and jacket. The article had a close up shot of this monstrosity from the 'wreckovation' of the Milwaukee Cathedral ......

and labeled it 'innovative and creative'. You can read the entire article at the following link (barf alert!)

When Vice President Al Gore and his wife Tipper entered the Blue Room for the annual White House Christmas party and saw the condoms, dildo vibrators, and crack pipes hanging from the First Lady’s Christmas tree, Mrs. Gore said, “You will not desecrate Christmas and my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ;” and with one punch, Tipper Gore knocked Hillary Clinton between the eyes, flat on her back to the floor, and immediately left the Christmas party with the Vice President,” according to federal whistleblower Stewart Webb who confirmed FBI agent Aldrich’s pornographic tree assertions. -- http://www.thepeoplescube.com/red/viewtopic.php?t=401





Response from the People's Commissar:
"I'm looking forward to Purge Season. Ahhh... the smell of fear, the sweat on the foreheads, the glaring Klieg lights, the flowing tears, the begging pleas for mercy... I don't know about you, but it gives me goose bumps and a warm fuzzy feeling that my cold blooded reptillian hypothalamus really enjoys, like a snake sunning itself on a warm, flat rock."
