Failed presidential candidate and former first lady Hillary Clinton now has some interest in becoming a Methodist preacher, according to The Atlantic.

Clinton’s pastor Bill Shillady told The Atlantic that Clinton had expressed interest in preaching when he saw her at a photo shoot for his book Strong for a Moment Like This for which Clinton has written the foreward. The book features daily devotionals he sent her during the 2016 campaign.

“Clinton is lifting up an intimate, closely guarded part of herself,” Emma Green writes. “There are no more voters left to lose. In sharing her faith, perhaps Clinton sees something left to win, whether political or personal.”

Shillady says he wrote the book at Clinton’s suggestion and that Clinton and her staffers read and approved the copy ahead of time.

The book apparently offers a “rare window” into the way Scripture shaped Clinton on the campaign trail.

“Hillary Rodham grew up attending First United Methodist Church in the conservative suburb of Park Ridge, Illinois, often taking field trips into Chicago with her youth pastor to see figures like Martin Luther King Jr.,” Green notes. “While other girls were flipping through beauty mags, she was reading about Vietnam and poverty in a now-defunct magazine for Methodist students called motive.”

Such moving imagery recalls to mind the image of Chelsea Clinton who also eschewed flipping through beauty mags to write a letter at age five to then President Reagan to voice her “opposition to his visit to the Bitburg cemetery in Germany, because Nazis were buried there.”

“I didn’t think an American president should honor a group of soldiers that included Nazis. President Reagan still went, but at least I had tried in my own small way,” she earnestly recalled in her book It’s Your World (Get Informed! Get Inspired! Get Going!).

Political awareness and patriotism at a tender age must run in the Clinton family.

“Hillary finds it hard to talk about religion a lot,” Mike McCurry, Bill Clinton’s former press secretary said. She “comes from the Methodist tradition, which, like many more liberal, mainstream Protestant denominations, is a little more buttoned up.”

Yes, Clinton’s inability to discuss religion was very evident on the 2016 campaign trail when 43 percent of voters did not believe she was religious.

Clinton also frequently declined interviews with faith based publications and reportedly didn’t hire a full-time faith outreach director until June 2016. She also had no one focused specifically on evangelical outreach. White evangelicals make up one quarter of the electorate.

“Not to have anyone reaching out to a quarter of the electorate is political malpractice,” the Obama campaign’s 2012 faith outreach director, Michael Wear, told Slate following the election.

Shillady acknowledged that Clinton could have talked about her faith more on the campaign trail but said commentators ignored that aspect of her identity. “It’s been there all along,” he said. “The general public didn’t necessarily want to accept the fact that she’s a Christian because there’s so many critics out there about the Clintons.”

Clinton “doesn’t wear her religion on her sleeve,” according to Shillady, “she just practices it. She follows the edict of what’s attributed to St. Francis: ‘Preach the gospel always, and if you need to, use words.’”

One wonders how Clinton “just practices” the teachings of the United Methodist Church (UMC) that “the practice of homosexuality is incompatible with Christian teaching” and “we support laws in civil society that define marriage as the union of one man and one woman.”

Apparently she practices this teaching by publicly and repeatedly avowing support for same-sex marriage.

“Given her depth of knowledge of the Bible and her experience of caring for people and loving people, she’d make a great pastor,” Shillady told Green.

He said that Clinton is not likely to pursue an official lay position in the Methodist church but that “it would be more of … her guest preaching at some point.”

“We have a long history of lay preachers in the United Methodist Church,” Shillady said.

At least Clinton could still opine on causes that are dear to her like access to late-term abortion and the continued taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood, an organization that performed 328,348 abortions last year.

She is surely aware, however, that the UMC recently decided to leave the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice (RCRC), a pro-abortion organization, with Delegates voting 425-268 to leave the group and some Delegates commenting that “abortion is murder.”

“Maybe after all these years of hard-scrabble politics,” Green concludes, “Clinton is finally becoming a more straightforward version of herself: a woman whose fondest ambition is teaching scripture in church.”


I think cankles would be much more comfortable in a satanic church. I can picture her dressed in all red, with horns, a pointed tail, and a pitchfork, performing a ritual sacrifice of a republican, cackling like a rabid hen with blood flying everywhere, sounding like the wicked witch from "Wizard of Oz"

I suspect the real truth is she has heard about the big dollars many churches are pulling in, and her bribe well has gone dry.

I'm just trying to imagine how boring and pedantic a Hitlery sermon would be.

I assume she'd open with a traditional feminist hymn, I Am Woman by Helen Reddy, followed by a prayer to "Our Mother God Within". Then I draw a blank.

My imagination isn't that vivid. Thankfully.

You'd better hope she doesn't get on a roll. That screechy voice of hers will decalcify your spinal cord, leaving you a puddle of protoplasm on the floor.

Pffft! She knows an indictment is on the horizon and is looking for sympathy.

The bullshit is strong with this one. The smelly old hag should stick to what she's good at: criminality and rapist-enabling.

Even if the rancid old bitch did it, she'd burst into flames upon entering a church for the first time anyway.

She could claim that she is a persecuted Christian preacherette.

This is because she has demonstrated the personality and empathy of a madame in a five dollar whorehouse. She lived in one for years while Bill used the White House as his personal whorehouse and she cracked jokes about it.

a persecuted Christian preacherette

In this Sunday, Oct. 2, 1994 file photo, first lady Hillary Clinton sings during a visit to the Bethel Metropolitan Baptist Church in St. Petersburg, Fla., as she campaigns for the Democratic party. Stephen Gunter of the Duke Divinity School says Clinton’s faith “is not something that she wears on her sleeve as a badge of superior identity or something. It simply is who she is.” And, he adds, “her personal faith has played a significant role in her formation as a public servant.” (AP Photo/Peter Cosgrove)

In this Sept. 25, 1994 file photo, President Bill Clinton, first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton and their daughter, Chelsea, sing a hymn during church services at the Bethel African Methodist Church in the Harlem section of New York. Clinton is a lifelong Methodist. But the Rev. Bill Shillady _ who officiated at Chelsea Clinton’s wedding, led a memorial service for Clinton’s mother, Dorothy Rodham, and gave the closing benediction at the Democratic National Convention _ feels that many people don’t really know how much her faith “is a daily thing.” (AP Photo/Wilfredo Lee)

For Clinton, a daily dose of faith along with politics

Those pictures make me queasy.

Ridiculous as Trump is at times (most times), at least we don't have to say President Hitlery.

Since political donations have dried up, if she can't make it as a TV preacher, I guess we can look forward to seeing her doing late night TV commercials for " Sham Wow " LOL. I can just visualize that LOL LOL LOL

Should I laugh now or later? What Hilliary needs is a conversion experience and a commitment for all her efforts to help the poor not herself

Once you get used to bags of tax-free cash being handed to you,it's not easy to give it up.

In the entire history of the world,the only nations that had to build walls to keep their own citizens from leaving were those with leftist governments.
