The Left has been on a crusade in their attack on religious freedom. For the sake of invented ‘reproductive rights’ and in a push to make everyone not only accept, but also embrace homosexuality, they have gone after the actual constitutionally guaranteed religious liberty. Now, the only Democrat candidate for the presidency thus far, Hillary Clinton, has let the country know where she stands in regards to religious freedom. According to Hillary, such freedom has to change.
During a speech on Thursday at the “Women in the World” summit held in New York City, Hillary made clear that, if she is president, she would not uphold and defend the Constitution, as the presidential oath demands. Instead, she believes that the religious beliefs that people possess must be changed. (emphasis mine)
“Yes, we’ve cut the maternal 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’ve passed 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.“
It says a lot about the current state of not only our culture, but also about those who purport to serve us in government for a presidential candidate to flagrantly thumb their nose at the Constitution as they are campaigning for office. For decades, the Democrats have pushed the notion that the Constitution is a living, breathing document that should be changed based upon cultural changes. For the last six and a half years, we have had a president in Barack Obama who have attacked the Constitution and gone around it with his pen and his phone as often as he could.
If Hillary Clinton is elected president, based upon this statement, she would continue that same practice as Obama. Constitutional rights would cease to exist if they do not mesh with her far-left progressive agenda.
