Saint Hillary: Why My Christian Faith Obligates Me to Support Hillary Clinton
Truly vomit inducing
Surrounded by impressive stone walls, elaborate and ornate Biblical images, with bold colors streaming through stained glass windows, the faithful bow their heads in prayer. Seated in the wooden pew of the Foundry United Methodist Church in Washington DC is a humble woman of faith. At this moment, she is not a former First Lady, Senator or Secretary of State. She is not a presidential candidate or any type of politician at all. At this moment, she is Hillary Clinton, follower of Christ.
Many politicians use their religious affiliations as their pulpit or platform to influence voters or to give themselves credibility, but being a Christ-follower is more than just lip-service or a club membership. Being a Christian isn't something that has to be professed through catchy phrases on a bumper sticker or an overtly Christian image on a t-shirt. True Christianity is not shouted from a hilltop, but whispered in the actions of the follower. Christianity is detected through action. Waving a Bible doesn't get the minimum wage raised or feed hungry kids. Waving a Bible doesn't give sick people the health care they need, nor does it help the less fortunate. Christianity is seen when those who follow Christ and profess their faith demonstrate the very nature of the Lord in their outward actions and personal interactions.
The Bible is clear that we, those who profess their faith in Christ, are to be the human, active, mobile hands and feet of Christ. We are supposed to do more than tell the world that we are Christians. We are to treat others in a way that is consistent with Christ himself. In others words,"faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead" (James 2:17 NIV). This commitment to being a concrete and tangible ambassador of Christ is the difference between Hillary Clinton and other politicians.
Like Hillary Clinton, I was raised in a Christian home. And like her, my faith has always been a big part of what defines me personally, professionally and politically. As with all other major areas of my life, I don't take the decision of who to vote for or endorse for president lightly. After a lot of observations, much consideration, research and personal interaction with Hillary Clinton, I can say with confidence that I can endorse her politics, policies and ideas. In fact, my Christian faith obligates me to vote for Hillary Clinton.
This guy is a master at lying by omission.
In fact, the article doesn't mention Bernie once
2008 was about the housing crash, 2004 was about the war... What the fuck is going on this year?
I'm thinking: God, Jesus, Bible, faith, Christian, Christ, Lord, etc. It shouldn't matter if you're a Christian, Jew, atheist or anything else. We shouldn't be subjected to the constant breast beating of a person's faith which may or may not be our own. Wouldn't it be wonderful if faith was demonstrated by actions and not sound bites?
back then "reformist technocrat" and "progressive Protestant" meant "teach the regular units how to do the killing, as opposed to paramilitaries and rural guards" and "let's burn out the old villages and the survivors will be forced into plantation-garrisons where the CO is their minister and says that the Pope and collective labor are Satanic"
