Catholic bishop admonishes 'evil' Hillary Clinton for celebrating abortion

 December 5, 2022

A Catholic bishop admonished Hillary Clinton for her celebration of abortion, warning Christians to "please don't listen to this evil woman."

Bishop Joseph E. Strickland of the Diocese of Tyler, Texas called out the twice-failed presidential candidate on Twitter, writing, "Please, please don’t listen to this evil woman. Her lies and immorality need to be silenced for the good of humanity."

Strickland's tweet including a link to an article from the LifeNews about a recent PBS interview in which Clinton compared the status of women in post-Roe v. Wade America to how women are treated in war-torn countries like Ukraine and Taliban-ruled Afghanistan.

“But we are also in a period of time where there is a lot of pushback and much of the progress that has been, I think, taken for granted by too many people is under attack," Clinton said.

"Literally under attack in places like Iran or Afghanistan or Ukraine where rape is a tactic of war, or under attacks by political and cultural forces in a country like our own when it comes to women’s health care and bodily autonomy," Clinton added.

Democrats test religious leaders

In recent years, Democrats have dropped the word "rare" from the Clinton-era "safe, legal and rare" abortion motto as the party has rallied behind abortion as a positive good, if not a kind of unholy sacrament.

Like many Democrats, Clinton, a Methodist, is enthusiastic about abortion but is not known for being a particularly vocal Christian.

Some leading Democrats like Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca.), who are Catholic, have taken things a step further by claiming to be devoutly religious while praising abortion, which is a grave evil according to the Catholic church.

Catholic leaders have been challenged by political leaders like Biden who brazenly defy church teaching. Biden has gone so far as to claim that abortion is a God-given right.

Pushing back on evil

Some churches, including Clinton's own, have adopted a more liberal outlook. The United Methodist Church reacted to the end of Roe v. Wade by warning the decision would have "severe consequences" for "Black, Brown, Indigenous and low-income communities."

"As people of faith, God calls us to transform conditions of injustice and advocate for the rights of all people to have access to affordable, equitable and comprehensive healthcare that includes reproductive and maternal care," the church said.

While some religious authorities have been cowed by the left's bullying, some, like Bishop Strickland, have boldly pushed back.

Strickland previously urged Biden to "stop spending our tax dollars to fund abortions around the world" and to desist from "claiming to be Catholic."

"You claim to be Catholic but you obviously are ignoring the basic teachings of the Catholic faith. Please make a decision to either follow Catholic teaching or stop claiming to be Catholic," Strickland wrote.

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
