Hillary Clinton Claims to Evangelicals: ‘I’m a Christian … a Praying Person’

Clinton View-compressedDuring an appearance on ABC’s “The View” this week, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton asserted that she is a Christian who takes her faith “seriously” and a “praying person” when asked why evangelicals should consider voting for her.

“As someone who is an undecided evangelical voter, and someone who believes that our Judeo-Christian values are under attack or are declining, what can you say to me?” co-host Candace Cameron Bure asked Clinton during Tuesday’s broadcast. “What can you say to people out there like me [as to] why I might consider voting for you?”

“Well, first of all, I’m a Christian, and I take my faith very seriously,” Clinton replied. “It has gotten me through some difficult times in the course of my life.”

“Somebody asked me years ago, ‘Are you a praying person?’ And I said, ‘Well, a week in the White House will turn anybody into a praying person,'” she said. “So, luckily, I was one before I got there.”

Clinton also replied to Cameron that Americans need to “show great respect and support for religious freedom,” and stated that she believed terror groups such as ISIS target minorities such as Christians and Yazidis.

“I want to defend people’s right to have their religion, and I of course will always support and defend my faith, but I will not impose it on anyone else, and I will not ask the government to create conditions where that happens,” she said.

Prior to Cameron’s question, in hearkening back to a statement Clinton had made on NBC’s “The Press” that the “unborn person” doesn’t have constitutional rights under the law, co-host Paula Farris asked Clinton if she believed unborn babies could be aborted any time up until birth.

“At what point does someone have constitutional rights?” Farris asked. “Are you saying that a child on its due date, just hours before delivery, still has no constitutional rights?”

“Under our law, that is the case,” Clinton replied. “I support Roe v. Wade because I think it is an important statement about the importance of a woman making this most difficult decision with consultation by whom she chooses: her doctor, her faith, her family. And under the law, and under certainly that decision, that is the way we structure it.”

“My view is, under the law, under Roe v. Wade, the appropriate way to handle this is to give that authority to women,” she said, generating applause and cheers from the audience. “I have no problem with people making the case, ‘Look, here’s the best choice, or here’s a better choice,’ but when the government gets involved, or when you say it’s illegal and women and doctors are criminals, that’s way too far for us.”

Cameron Bure had also asked Clinton if she believes one can be both pro-life and feminist.

“Of course you can be a feminist and be pro-life,” Clinton said.

Despite her claims to be a Christian, some have spoken out against Hillary Clinton, noting that her beliefs and policies run contrary to the word of God.

“We slaughter over one million babies per year in the womb. The number’s staggering. Are Christians supposed to remain mum about this tragic court-approved holocaust? Is God pleased if we just look the other way?” writes Bryan Ridenour on his blog “America, Look Up.” “When a candidate idolizes Margaret Sanger and is a darling of Emily’s List, conservatives need to run, not walk, in the other direction.”

“If a church member asks in 2016 if I can support Hillary Clinton, I can unequivocally respond, ‘Not in this lifetime,’” he stated. “If we vote for leaders who support abortion on demand, then we essentially hold the surgical knife that strips life from the womb. If we vote for leaders who support and champion gay marriage, we in effect officiate at their ceremonies. God holds us accountable for what we do behind the voting booth curtain.”

    She’s a Satanist. No Christ in her.

    • wandakate

      Then maybe it was satan that she claimed to be praying to. There is a church called the “church or satan” and I guess his followers pray to him thinking he can answer them. Well talk about common sense, being dumbed down and not being sensible, that would be it. People are deceived into believing an array of things that can’t help them at all. They neither see, hear, walk or talk. They are idols.

  • robertzaccour

    She’s always a “Christian” during election time.

  • Nidalap

    Do we seriously believe this statement from most politicians? It’s just become something they say. They don’t even bother to believably fake it anymore…

  • Oshtur

    She’s just as faithful a Christian as her dear beloved husband…
    No Christians on the left, none.

  • Destiny2429

    I don’t agree with abortion…I don’t agree with promoting the gay lifestyle…but for any politician to say these things…they would never get elected…because we are living in a time where no one wants anyone to tell them the truth, because that would require us to repent and change our ways…

    • Grace Kim Kwon

      USA persecutes the truth-telling Christians this century. It’s a total treason against her creation in every way. The practice of infanticide and immorality makes the mass evil tyrants – the dead end of democracy. That’s the problem. Democracy works only with moral Christian people and their mimickers. Sin brings slavery one way or another. American democracy needs objective truth and religious liberty this century.

  • WorldGoneCrazy

    She was a praying person in the White House. She was praying that her hubby would not get caught groping all of his women he did in the Oval Office. She was also praying that the blue dress would not come out.

    We need not go back to her support for partial birth abortion. We can just look over the past year:

    http://www .lifenews .com/2015/09/01/10-times-hillary-clinton-revealed-how-extreme-she-is-on-abortion/


    ‘After the stomach-churning undercover videos of Planned Parenthood officials discussing the harvesting and pricing of aborted baby body parts, Clinton stood firm in support of the abortion provider. She went as far as to say, “I’m proud to stand with Planned Parenthood.” ‘

    “Clinton likened pro-life Americans to terrorists

    “Now, extreme views about women, we expect that from some of the terrorist groups, we expect that from people who don’t want to live in the modern world, but it’s a little hard to take from Republicans who want to be the president of the United States,” Clinton said at a campaign event in Ohio on August 27th.”

    Hardly a Christian.

    • wandakate

      OH PLEASE…we shall know them by their fruits. You are so right…How can se say that knowing it’s not the truth? She’s not praying to my GOD, the only GOD of heaven and earth, the creator. She must have been praying to another god, and reading another gospel.
      Abortion is wrong as there are many couples that would love to adopt a baby. Abortion in my opinion is selfish. Pregnancy can be prevented. Therefore there is NO excuse in the first place. Anybody with any common sense can prevent it. Hillary needs to confess, repent and forsake her sins, b/c it seems by her fruits and her opinions and beliefs at this point in time, that satan has ahold of her and doesn’t wanna let her go.

  • thomashenryjr

    And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light

  • Grace Kim Kwon

    She is lying. A Christian never blasphemes by putting her name in the place of God in singing hymns or support infanticide and homosexuality/transgenderism. She is not Christian. She is a secular humanist who aims secularism’s godless dystopia on earth.

  • Josey

    Her fruit is rotten and stinks, wonder if she prayed the day they left the white house while stealing things, she was after all broke…ha, can’t believe that ppl still support them.

    • wandakate

      Well you know they say people are “stupid”. Even Bill Gates and Henry Kissinger said they are just “useless eaters”. We have NO common sense it seems. People vote for whomever, b/c many don’t know the truth from the lies. They just vote to get their little “I Voted Today” sticker. The left hand don’t know what the right hand is doing in many cases. And many just don’t care. I would think that most politicians lie on every corner just to get votes. They tell people what they want to hear, but not necessarily the TRUTH!

  • Andrew

    It was a United Methodist pastor who turned her on to liberalism, convincing her that Christianity is just a matter of helping the secular left meet its goals. The left-wing seminaries are essentially atheistic in their beliefs, but they are devout believers in government spending.

  • Max

    If that harpy is a Christian, Satan is a Christian.

  • TruthiNLove

    These interviews with candidates are SO disappointing and frustrating. The interviewers never ask questions that get DEEPER and more specific answers. First, I would ask her to define “Christian”, since she says she is, to know where her heart and mind is. She is Christian yet staunchly defends homosexuality and abortion but not her fellow Christians? She says she would defend her faith and believes in religious freedom…but then says she would not have gov’t help establish freedoms. That makes no sense..since the gov’t IS the one who keeps stripping these freedoms away in spite of the constitution, bill of rights and our founding fathers (documented) intentions! Essentially what she is saying is “political jargon”, which equates to: “you can have freedom of religion, which means you “free” to keep it to yourself, in your home and/or church…BUT..absolutely nowhere else! THAT is what we are to accept as freedom? Has Hilary every visited the Capitol in D.C.? Does she know there is a prayer room in that GOVERNMENT building? Does she know that church services used to be held there? Does she know that there are statues of ministers there? That there is a bust of MOSES (yes, the biblical Moses) there? Does she know that the 10 commandments are scattered everywhere in that building? Does she know there are HUGE paintings that show the Bible, baptisms, etc? And yet, we as Christians are to believe that our founding fathers felt that freedom of religion meant…keep your religion silent in public/schools/gov’t…but open strictly at home or church? When will TRUTH and fact ever play into a politicians answer when it comes to the “freedom of religion” subject?

    • wandakate

      When will TRUTH and fact ever play into a political game? It’s about the numbers and they want them badly. If it requires lying, then so be it. Do you think she really cares? Maybe she’s never been in that building, who knows?

  • Chrissy Vee

    haHAhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! phew…. good one! ouch my cheeks hurt…. chuckle… sniff… oh, boy… hahaha…. heehee… no really….stop…… you’re ruining my mascara…

  • TheBottomline4This

    “who takes her faith “seriously” and a “praying person” ” LOL…riiight 😉

    • wandakate

      People pray to many gods, not just GOD in the heavens. Somebody needs to asked her who she prays to! But even then would she give you a story? Doubtful you’ll ever get the truth.

  • If in today’s world a man can be a woman and a woman a man then why can’t Hillary claim to be a Christian? And while we’re at it, we better check with our animals. Who knows, maybe your dog prefers to be treated like a cat. And, come to think of it, why can’t man be God?

    Redefining ourselves (as with the transgenders) or claiming to be something we’re not (as in Hillary’s case) is the consequence of the latter, which, in turn is the result of denying Yahweh as our sovereign and His Word as immutable. This, in turn, leads to anything goes–man doing that which is right in his own eyes, per Judges 21:25.

    Judges 21:25 is what today is commonly known as humanism and humanism is merely a contemporary form of Baalism. See blog article “Could YOU be a Disciple of Baal and Not Know It?” Click on my picture, then our website. Go to our Blog and scroll down to title.

    • wandakate

      Right is now wrong, wrong is now right. What is the truth anyway? ALL politicians lie. Does Hillary tell the truth, the Donald, Kasich, Sanders, Cruz????? Many Christians want Cruz and look over all the multiple affairs that he’s had (as an adulterer), but they still will go and vote for him, a sinner like all the rest. Seems like Christians are as blind as the ones who aren’t! Donald can’t even quote a scripture out of the bible, but yet says it’s his favorite book…How stupid are we now? More so than we’ve been in the past apparently.

      • It’s what Isaiah depicted in Isaiah 5:20 as calling evil good and evil good.

        • wandakate

          Evil good and good evil is what you meant to say. Oh I just wrote and had published 2 books and there are typos in them also. I have read many books and typos are apparently part of the process (laughing).
          It’s probably the same as right is wrong, and wrong is right. Probably means the same huh?
          I think the longer we go the worse it will be. Satan is more powerful than we want to believe. But then life is nothing but a spiritual battle between the forces of good and the forces of evil. Choose you today whom you will serve!

    • Grundune

      Kingdom Ambassador aka Ted R. Weiland is a preacher (?) who preaches the abolition of the U.S. Constitution just like Communists, Sharia-law Muslims, socialists,
      Democrats and any other group that would benefit from its demise.

      Weiland can’t understand that generations of Americans have benefited from the liberty and freedom afforded by the U.S. Constitution. He wants one-man-rule to replace our Constitution. He favors tyranny over liberty for us.

      He’s not the brightest bulb.

  • Ax2root

    Feminism is an antichrist mindset and spirit.

    Feminism opposes The Word of God in every area.

    Feminism hates males and females and people of every age and nation because people are created in the image and likeness of God.

    And the antichrist mindset of feminism HATES THE CREATOR

  • A preying person!

  • Jandre Kroeze

    Bullshit!! Shes a liar!!!

  • Gregory Alan of Johnson

    Her “fruit” does not bear that witness.

  • Just because I sit in a hen house and crow doesn’t mean I’m a rooster.

    • Grundune

      No, but you’re beginning to annoy the neighbors.

  • Susan

    In the Bible it says we will know people by their fruit. The fruit being their actions, and their words. Hillary should take a good look at her “fruit.” None of us who are Christians are sinless. The point being that Jesus says if we love him we will keep his commands. The Bible tells us what good fruit and bad fruit is. It tells us when we sin to ask forgiveness and to REPENT of our wicked ways. Hillary can claim she is a Christians….but people should not listen to what she says…but they should indeed, be looking at her fruit. And the fact, there has been no repentance.

  • Paladin

    She meant ANTI-Christian.
    The TOOTH fairy and her faith in Jesus hold the same weight of validity of reality.
    Her core is satanic, and I DOUBT she COULD change. Think it’s too late and she’s sold out to the devils works regardless if Jesus was staring in front of here – like the BAAL priests that were slain, so her time will come be that in this life or in the resurrection to come.

  • Robert

    Im going to take a guess and say ..let this little light shine was not one of her favorite Sunday school songs.
