Is Hillary Rodham Clinton
as evil as many white Evangelicals believe ?

It never ceases to amaze me how the secular media, liberals, and the Democratic Party doesn't want to know why the great majority of the 70% or so of the white Christians and/or Catholics in America these days tend to vote conservative and Republican.
        It isn't that it has always been that way; it hasn't. It isn't that the teaching and / or example of the author of Christianity, Jesus Christ, is basically conservative: it isn't.
        A century ago, a great many of America's Christian churches were being led by "liberals like Christ", as they made clear when the Federal Council of Churches, which they had recently come together to create, proclaimed what they had learned from Jesus Christ as it applied to their times:

The Federal Council of Churches
"Social Creed" of 1908

        We deem it the duty of all Christian people to concern themselves directly with certain practical industrial problems. To us it seems that the churches must stand

  • For equal rights and complete justice for all men in all stations of life.
  • For the right of all men to the opportunity for self-maintenance, a right ever to be wisely and strongly safeguarded against encroachments of every kind.
  • For the right of workers to some protection against the hardships often resulting from the swift crises of industrial change.
  • For the principle of conciliation and arbitration in industrial dissensions.
  • For the protection of the worker from dangerous machinery, occupational disease, injuries and mortality.
  • For the abolition of child labor.
  • For such regulation of the conditions of toil for women as shall safeguard the physical and moral health of the community.
  • For the suppression of the "sweating system."
  • For the gradual and reasonable reduction of the hours of labor to the lowest practicable point, and for that degree of leisure for all which is a condition of the highest human life.
  • For a release from employment one day in seven.
  • For a living wage as a minimum in every industry, and for the highest wage that each industry can afford.
  • For the most equitable division of the products of industry that can ultimately be devised.
  • For suitable provision for the old age of the workers and for those incapacitated by injury.
  • For the abatement of poverty.

To the toilers of America and to those who by organized effort are seeking to lift the crushing burdens of the poor, and to reduce the hardships and uphold the dignity of labor, this Council sends the greeting of human brotherhood and the pledge of sympathy and of help in a cause which belongs to all who follow Christ.

I've been a Christian clergyman for some 50 years, and I've always been fascinated by the attitude of conservatives who are white Christians like myself towards the Clintons. It's not only that they are so eager to blame this woman for the sins of her husband; but while they act as though there is no sin grave enough that it cannot be forgiven when it comes to their own conservative and/or Republican allies, when it comes to their liberal and/or democratic rivals, there is no sin insignificant enough to be forgiven.

For two whole decades, this had been the view most of the world had of Hillary Rodham Clinton, (as a result of her being first lady of the U.S.A. for 8 years, the U.S. Senator from New York for 8 years, and then U.S. Secretary of State for 4 years) : MostAdmiredWomaninWorld
But in 2016 Russian propaganda joined forces with America's white evangelicals and other conservative Republicans to turn Hillary into : HillaryDemonized

I believe that Sarah Pulliam Bailey did a great job laying out in an Oct. 9th, 2016 Washington Post article "The deep disgust (of white evangelicals for Hillary Clinton". In summary, she wrote that Hillary Clinton "symbolizes much that runs against their beliefs: abortion rights advocacy, feminism and, conversely, a rejection of biblical ideas of femininity and womanhood. Perhaps even more significantly, Hillary Clinton, as an outspoken and activist first lady, is inextricably tied in the minds of conservative Christians to their loss of the culture war battles beginning with Bill Clinton's first term in 1993.

    Here are some of the points that Ms. Bailey makes:
  1. "When probed in 1992 during her husband's presidential run about the relationship between her husband's job as governor of Arkansas and her own career as a lawyer, Clinton gave an answer that for many evangelicals lives in infamy. 'I suppose I could have stayed home, baked cookies and had teas,' Clinton fired back to reporters. . . Many evangelicals, who even now believe that women should be stay-at-home mothers, were aghast. She's not submissive, she's not sexy, she's not properly maternal. . . Even without saying anything, she's a symbol of many of the things evangelicals have come to stand against."
  2. "Many evangelicals believe that abortion remains a nonnegotiable policy issue and that electing a president who will choose Supreme Court justices willing to overturn Roe v. Wade is overridingly important. "I think evangelicals would vote for a ham sandwich if it was promising the right Supreme Court appointments".
  3. "Three-quarters of evangelicals cited dislike for Clinton as a major reason they support Trump, according to a recent Pew Research poll."

In addition to the above, in 1991, while defending her support of husband and eventual President of the United State, Bill Clinton, on "60 Minutes," Hillary Clinton totally insulted the reigning first lady of country music at the time, Tammy Wynette, by saying, "I'm not sitting here like some little woman standing by my man like Tammy Wynette."

Now, when it comes to Hillary, she has been under attack for some 25 years. Far from being viewed as innocent until proven guilty as we Americans pretend to believe Hillary has always been viewed as guilty by many "Christian Conservatives" no matter how many times she has been found innocent of all charges in independent and objective courts.
        During President Bill Clinton's first term, enemies with no conscience used every means conceivable to destroy their reputation. One group gave a successful writer named, David Brock a million-dollar advance to write a hatchetjob biography of Hillary. Brock was so impressed with all of the good things that he learned about her that his patrons were furious at the book that he produced, called "The Seduction of Hillary Rodham". Since then David Brock has turned his mind and life around and has become a champion liberal Democrat, has published a more honest and more positive version of that book, along with one called "Blinded by the Right: The Conscience of an Ex-Conservative".
       Do you have any idea how many millions of dollars of taxpayer dollars were squandered on the many Congressional committees that the Republicans used to investigate Hillary Clinton's supposed malfeasance regarding Benghazi matter, culminating with the eleven-hour inquisition of Hillary, all of which came to the conclusion in their minds: "She's guilty as sin; but damned if we can prove it! "
        And then the same thing happened once again with the long and through FBI investigation of Hillary's email practices, which ended with the FBI chief's declaration that she was innocent of any criminal behavior. But the conclusion of many "Christian Conservatives" was "She's guilty as sin; but damned if we can prove it! "

        RussiaJesusVsSatanAdWhile the Hillary's haters hasn't gotten much help from the U.S. Justice system, Russia's propaganda machine has taken up the slack by providing a huge fake news and false advertizing campaign on the largely unregulated social media like Twitter and Facebook, including this gem, to your right :
        This presidential campaign was weird in so many ways, most importantly perhaps because on the one hand, there were so many issues that needed to be discussed about Trump, but didn't seem to matter to his supporters; and on the other hand, all that Hillary's opponents wanted to talk about was "her damned emails"!


Say what, General, who ought to get locked up ?

        God only knows for sure, but I have a hunch that the vast majority of Christian conservative voters were not as bothered as they pretended about the whole "email scandal" and/ or the catastrophic "Benghazi issue". After all, if any of Hillary Clinton's behavior in these matters were causing any concern among those who are really knowledgeable about national security, then why would so many top national leaders in that community have issued this warning about the threat to our nation's security that Trump represents, rather than Clinton?

        Nothing that either Trump or Hillary said or did seemed to matter to the voters during the election campaign. It's what they represented that mattered to them. Just as David and Goliath alone did battle on behalf of their respective armies, Donald did battle for the conservative view of the whole panoply of America's problems and solutions on the one hand, and Hillary stood for all of the liberal alternatives on the other. While many of those issues got various amounts of attention, I believe that one of the issues that had the greatest impact has gotten the least attention; and that is the issue of religion, or morality. in America. It may be that Trump won the crucial number of votes that he needed because enough voters really believed Donald Trump's bombastic claims that he would somehow magically reverse a 30 year trend that no one else has been able to stop of jobs leaving America, and "make America great again" by restoring the golden age of the 1950, when white people at least remember that their parent's generation all had good job with good pay.
        But many have been overlooking the important fact that there is a conservative majority in America which - when they can be moved to go to the polls by a candidate like Donald Trump - can and do win again and again at all levels of government.The Pew Research Center is one of the best sources of insightful information on such issues, and the charts excerpted below (and edited slightly for clarity) make some very crucial points:

Since religion is so important to the white evangelical community, and they didn't really view Trump as very religious (despite the act he put on for them), why were they (or you) so enthused about voting for him? Could it be that they did so because their conservative Christian leaders made it unthinkable to vote for Hillary Clinton?

Jesus Christ taught NOTHING about ANY of the above topics.

But see what "liberal Democrats" have being doing for years
to fulfill what Jesus ACTUALLY TAUGHT
by word and deed at Democrats & the Bible.
