Posted on 08/09/2017 4:29:18 PM PDT by Morgana
So what do you do if you are an abortion advocate who lost two presidential elections in a row? For Hillary Clinton it is considering becoming a Methodist pastor.
The news that Clinton would consider becoming a pastor in the United Methodist Church is not surprising given that the Methodist Church supported abortion for years until recently and still has a large contingent of pastors and other church leaders who strongly support abortion.
According to The Atlantic, Clinton told her longtime pastor Bill Shillady, at a recent photo shoot for his new book, that she wants to preach something that the outlet says has always been a dream for her.
This comes on the back of a report that Clinton told an editor in 1994 that she thought all the time about becoming a minister. Per the Atlantic:
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 Clintons long campaign to modulateand sometimes obscureexpressions of her faith.

The revelation comes ahead of two Clinton-related books coming out in 2017. Clinton herself has written What Happened a 500+ page campaign post-mortem about how she lost in November. But Shillady himself has a new book of devotions: Strong for a Moment Like This: The Daily Devotions of Hillary Rodham Clinton which has a forward by Clinton herself.
Hillary Clinton says she is a Christian and a United Methodist; however, her radical positions on abortion, religious freedom and other issues have many questioning the sincerity of her religious beliefs.
Meanwhile, in a strange comment a couple years back, Chelsea Clinton said she left the Baptist Church at the age of 6 because it has a strongly pro-life position opposing abortions.
Clinton made the comment at a recent fundraiser for Hillary Clinton in an attempt to address evangelicals who question her mothers faith in God. She said she was upset when teachers in a Sunday School class talked about the wrongness of abortion.
I find it quite insulting sometimes when people say to my mom, my dad or me . . . that they question our faith, said Chelsea. I was raised in a Methodist church and I left the Baptist church before my dad did, because I didnt know why they were talking to me about abortion when I was 6 in Sunday school thats a true story.
My mother is very deeply a person of faith, Chelsea said. It is deeply authentic and real for my mother, and it guides so much of her moral compass, but also her lifes work.
I recognized that there were many expressions of faith that I dont agree with and feel [are] quite antithetical to how I read the Bible, Chelsea said. But I find it really challenging when people who are self-professed liberals kind of look askance at my familys history.
She likes to hear herself talk.
She will literally become anything, anyone and say anything necessary to claw her way back into power.
Did you see this unbelievable story in The Atlantic? Apparently not satire but it just shows that she really thinks believers have no brains and are easily led by vile people.
At least Jim Bakker wrote a book called “I Was Wrong”.
No way, did Hillary always dream of becoming a minister and there is absolutely NO WAY that dear little Chelsea was told about abortion in Sunday School, at the age of 6!
Is there a Commandment that that family hasn't broken many times over? I doubt it!
And whatever Hillary imagines Methodism to be, her ideas are the antithesis of what John and Charles Wesley preached and taught!
Whenever I hear talk about what Hillary will do next, I am reminded of this conversation :
George: I like sports. I could do something in sports.
Jerry: Uh-huh. Uh-huh. In what capacity?
George: You know, like the general manager of a baseball team or something.
Jerry: Yeah. Well, that - that could be tough to get.
George: Well, it doesn’t even have to be the general manager. Maybe I could be like, an announcer. Like a color man. You know how I always make those interesting comments during the game.
Jerry: Yeah. Yeah. You make good comments.
George: What about that?
Jerry: Well, they tend to give those jobs to ex-ballplayers and people that are, you know, in broadcasting.
George: Well, that’s really not fair.
Jerry: I know. Well, okay. Okay. What else do you like?
George: Movies. I like to watch movies.
Jerry: Yeah. Yeah.
George: Do they pay people to watch movies?
George: That’s true.
Jerry: But you gotta know how to work the projector.
Jerry: And it’s probably a union thing.
Why has she not beed arrested for bribery?
whatever happened to the old “Get ye to a nunnery” ???
Hillary is not Catholic.
Only if she can lay hands on lay women.
She’ll fit in perfectly: the UM can’t find any reason to condemn homosexuality or abortion. She’ll fit right in.
I remember when bill was running for reelection . She floated the “ we’re thinking of adopting “ balloon . BS
What are the Vegas odds on a Lightning Bolt?
All of the Clintons will and have said ANYTHING...but never mean a word of it.
Sure, whenever the Marines would let her have some time off.
I suspect this is a mixture of Hillary Clinton telling people what she thinks they want to hear, and reporters expanding "wants to preach" into "wants to become a minister."
As the article goes on to say, the Methodists "have a long history of lay preaching." Guest preachers may not be that uncommon and one may not have to preach very often to be a guest preacher.
“I decided, how can I demonstrate my Marxism? The thought was, infiltrate the church. So I consciously made a decision to look into that prospect.” - Jim Jones
Of course not satire. She really means it, and I think she’d be really excellent at it. Really. There alone on the altar in an empty church, she could spout whatever she thinks about God and Man. Really.
