Hillary Clinton: Religious Faith Means Caring for Others

Speaking before a convention of Methodist women, Hillary Clinton explained that her definition of Christianity essentially means caring for others.

Clinton appeared before the United Methodist Women's Assembly on Saturday, April 26, and told those gathered what her religious faith means to her.

She claimed that growing up she struggled to reconcile her Navy veteran father's stern view of self-reliance with her mother's more compassionate views. She felt that the story of how Jesus fed 5,000 worshippers with only five loaves of bread and two fish was her guiding Biblical theme.

"The disciples come to Jesus and suggest they send away the people to find food to fend for themselves. But Jesus said, 'No. You feed them.' He was teaching a lesson about the responsibility we all share," Clinton told the crowd.

The "author" of the 1996 book "It Takes a Village," former Obama Secretary of State, and possible Democrat candidate for President in 2016 also used the forum to push for a hike in the minimum wage. She raised the theme of "equal pay" for women, as well.

Warming to her theme of the "inequality" of women in our society, Clinton lamented that women don't just face a "ceiling" in their careers but it is "as if the floor is collapsing beneath them" because of the unfairness they face. "These are our sisters, our daughters, granddaughters. Some are hungry, not just for nutritious food but for opportunity, for chance to thrive, for their own piece of the American dream," Clinton said at the religious gathering.

The one-time First Lady also told the crowd that she "loved" the church she attended as a young girl.

"I love that church. I love how it made me feel about myself," Clinton told the crowd. "I love the doors that it opened in my understanding of the world, I loved the way it helped to deepen my faith and ground it."

Hillary Clinton: Religious Faith Means Caring for Others

She is absolutely right.

It doesn't however, mean that the government should take from us to do whatever they consider to be helpful to others.

Religious faith means DIRECTLY caring for others, stemming from your own free desire to do so.
“[Euthanasia] is what any State medical service has sooner or later got to face. If you are going to be kept alive in institutions run by and paid for by the State, you must accept the State’s right to economize when necessary …” The Ministry of Fear by Graham Green (New York: Penguin Books [1943] 2005, p. 165).

All of the sudden she has discovered Religion..
GOP House members came to Paul Ryan to be Speaker. He didn't come to them. And he was everybody's conservative darling back in 2012. So unless 1 of the remaining 240 wants to step up & do a better job in budgeting & negotiations & herding the party cats, then everybody please STFU. You go to battle with the army you have, not the one you want but don't have.

Unless it's 'religious' faith used only to promote your TRUE faith........ radical leftist politics.

Scripture never tells government to care for the poor.  Jesus didn't tell Caesar to care for the poor.

It is we, as individuals who are commanded to care for those in need.

Hillary is morally confused....... 
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

Jesus also notes: "The poor you will always have with you." (This was in response to Judas Iscariot's insistence that perfume a woman doused Jesus with could have easily been sold and used to give to the poor.)

The concept that the government of our times has, as if we can somehow eradicate poverty by taking other people's money, behaved much like Judas Iscariot. One of the things that angered Jesus most was thievery: he overturned tables at the Temple for it. One of the people who he sought to have repent was a tax collector (Zacchaeus). When a crowd of four thousand heard that he had fed five thousand a few days before, they assembled, only to have them endure three days of Jesus making esoteric commands, as if to weed out those simply seeking free stuff.

The idea of personal charity to the poor is not the same as the government's idea of using its power of coercive taxation to fund a permanent underclass.

Halleluya! Hillary has seen the light! lol I was blind, but now I see!
 
The thing about Leftists when they 'claim' rligion, is that they shape it to mean whatever they want it to mean.
 
When a leftist talks about 'caring for others', you can bet they are not talking about Jesus, what they are talking about is taking 'your' money to do it. Never their own money. It is always your money that they are interested in.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
