Religious Freedom and Hilary Clinton


I have deep held religious beliefs that are based upon the Bible. These are being challenged by Hillary Clinton who says I do not have the right to these beliefs. The following article shows the truth of what her statement means to me, a Bible believer.

I want to be as brief as possible. This is about Hillary and her statement that is being whitewashed for the masses. That simply means that her controversial statement of religions will have to change their beliefs is not being reported by the major media because of how it would effect her campaign.

I searched long and hard for the transcript of her speech at the “World Women Conference.” Sadly, the mainstream media paraphrased much of the speech and left that portion out. It is on “youtube.” Some one has taken the time to put it on paper in context. I have watched and listened to the speech and the context and believe she is calling for a change in religious beliefs being mandated. She wants to tell you what to believe.

MRC Newsbusters have this as her comment – Yes, we’ve cut the material mortality rate in half, but far too many women are still denied critical access to reproductive health care and safe childbirth. All the laws we pass 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. As I – (Applause) as I have said and as I believe, the advancement of the full participation of women and girls in every aspect of their societies is the great unfinished business of the 21st century, and not just for women but for everyone, and not just in far away countries but right here in the United States.

Do not believe this is in context go to youtube and type in “Hillary – Womens World Conference.”

Ed Morrissey at Hot Air said this – David Gibson suggested this might be Hillary Clinton’s “clinging to guns and religion” moment, and he may be right — assuming she survives the corruption scandals in the first place. Last night, Hillary told the Women in the World Summit that the path to Abortion Nirvana will only open up by changing religion, culture, and values to accommodate it:

“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,” Clinton said.

Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will,” she explained. “And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed. As I have said and as I believe, the advancement of the full participation of women and girls in every aspect of their societies is the great unfinished business of the 21st century and not just for women but for everyone — and not just in far away countries but right here in the United States.”

In one sense, this shows just how extreme the pro-abortion caucus actually is. As Hillary admits here — albeit unwittingly — the at-will destruction of the unborn goes against religious beliefs, long-held cultural values, and the structural “biases” that exist to recognize the value of human life. That’s what the “clump of cells” fallacy has to overcome, and as Hillary and the Left have discovered, it’s a tall order. And it’s not just abortion, but also same-sex marriage and forced participation in it, euthanasia dressed up as “right to die” movements, and the rest.

 

Kirsten Powers who is a liberal wrote on April 29th, 2015 in USA Today, a liberal paper – This darn world just won’t stop clinging to religion.

But Hillary Clinton is on the case. At last week’sWomen in the World Summit, Clinton explained to her high-end Manhattan audience that “deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed” regarding “reproductive health care.” She was talking about both the United States and unnamed “far-away countries.”

If Clinton is going to complain about cultural codes, perhaps she should dispense with the “reproductive health care” euphemism and just say “abortion” and “contraception.” Then she should explain why she thinks she, or anyone else, has the right to dictate what religious people believe about either issue.

We know she wants to be president — but does she think she is God, too?

Snopes says this is a false statement.

Politifact says – The headlines from conservative media that we found such as Fox News focused on abortion: “Hillary: ‘Religious beliefs’ must change for sake of abortion.”

Clinton, who is a supporter of abortion rights, didn’t use the word abortion, but she did mention “reproductive health care,” which can include abortion as well as birth control or prenatal health care.

But her statement is somewhat different from Bush’s claim. She didn’t say that a “progressive agenda” should dictate religious beliefs — her overall point was that countries need to do more to help protect women’s rights to education, health care, and to live safely — and that to do so requires enforcing laws and changing religious beliefs.

Clinton’s speech didn’t only pertain to far flung countries — she was making a statement to religious conservatives in the United States.

“America moves forward when all women are guaranteed the right to make their own health care choices, not when those choices are taken away by an employer like Hobby Lobby,” she said. In 2014, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that certain companies with religious objections can opt out of a mandate under the Affordable Care Act to provide free contraception to their employees.

“One would like to imagine that Clinton was speaking only about primitive cultures where children are forced into marriage and childbearing, or where genital cutting is common,” wrote Kathleen Parker, a conservative columnist for the Washington Post. “But we know that she also meant religious conservatives closer to home whose beliefs get in the way. She explicitly criticized Hobby Lobby for not paying for its employees’ contraception.”

Then Politifact makes their own decision as to what is said, – So the only area where she says beliefs must change that has any possible connection to domestic issues is in the reference to the overall category of reproductive health.

Bush is making Clinton’s remarks sound far more sweeping than they actually are. Clinton was talking about specific issues affecting women’s health and safety, in both a global and domestic context.  We rate this statement Half True. How do you like a legeral left leaning news source in partnership with the “Tampa Bay Times and Miami Herald (liberal papers) interpreting for you what you can plainly read and understand. They treat you as if you don’t have a brain.
