Hillary Clinton’s “Freedom of Worship” Cripples Freedom of Religion

For years, Hillary Clinton and her adversary turned accomplice with regard to religion, Barack Obama, have been attempting a slight of hand which will stifle the religious freedom our nation was founded on.  Their use of “freedom of worship” with impunity is part of their agenda to eliminate opposition to their plans.1

By restricting the freedom of religion to the tightly confined space of the four walls of religious buildings, it ceases to be truly free.  Hillary Clinton even went so far as to use this position to promote the legal form of murder known as abortion:

“Far too many women are denied access to reproductive health care and safe childbirth, and laws don’t count for much if they’re not enforced. Rights have to exist in practice — not just on paper.  Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will.  And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.”2

Thus, it is not surprising to hear members of her campaign staff agreeing with a supporter, John Halpin, a staffer at the Clinton allied Center for American Progress, who said of Catholics: “They must be attracted to the systematic thought and severely backwards gender relations and must be totally unaware of Christian democracy…”  Clinton spokesperson Jennifer Palmieri added, “I imagine they think it is the most socially acceptable politically conservative religion. Their rich friends wouldn’t understand if they became evangelicals.”3

This may not hurt her in the election as only 31% of Democrats attend weekly church services.  This number falls to 23% of white Democrats.

Regardless, restricting religious practices to houses of worship is a contradiction to the very nature of religion.  Hillary and most of her fellow Democrats may not believe the war against terrorism is a religious war at its roots.  However, her attempts to hold Christian religions hostage will not be as badly misinterpreted.

  1. Obama changed our fabric, but only because G.W. didn’t. H.C. will change it even more, I agree, but only until the Republicans put up a real and sane candidate. We can get through 4 more years of Ms. Obama, but not 8. We may not even get safely through Trump’s first year, though. Not for one second can I imagine he can handle the responsibility without imploding into dictatorship. As for the onus of voter failure which is electing H.C. more every day against its own will, it should go to where it belongs — on the Republican party. I can make zero apologies for voting for H.C. if that’s the way to keep Trump out, because I was left with no real options.

    • This is a real mess, isn’t it? Fortunately, we haven’t disagreed on much. Trump is volatile, but since Emperor Obama didn’t quite reach dictatorship, I don’t think Trump would. As for Hillary Clinton, I cannot endorse more of the Sodom & Gomorrah agenda which the Left is pursuing.

      All of this aside, the clincher for me would have to be the fact that either of them will impact the condition of the Supreme Court for a long time after he/she is gone. Trump’s sensible picks would not be a lock, but Hillary’s Court would dent the intent of the Constitution severely and will make it more difficult for the Church to carry out its missions.

    • Not familiar with the “Bob Ross” reference. Sadly, both candidates have insulted numerous people rather pointedly. I can’t ignore the Left’s direct insults to God via abortion and same-sex “marriage” along with inherently anti-Christian values found in socialism.

      • All of which Trump is quietly identical with her in, except for socialism. That’s what is frustrating.. people so don’t want H.C. they’re willing to not see everything Trump actually lives. His Presidency would abort many people, and would have 90% more to do with hell than with heaven. I’m still amazed that the Trump joke went this far..I don’t want H.C. or such liberal ilk any more than you do! But I want Trump and his dictator ilk even less.

      • From the beginning of the first debate, my fiance, now my wife has suspected that Trump was a plant to ensure a Democratic win. Regardless of whether you or I become validated with the results, we know our nation will be in need of more prayers!

      • Well, after all is said and about to be done, yes — more prayer will be needed perhaps the world over. I think there must be a serious reason indeed, for all these big saints (and in pectore cardinals) in and near our current lifetime.
