Hillary Clinton on her devout Christian faith.

While she insists that Barak Obama is ‘elitist’ and ‘out of touch’.

My, how these Christians love one another.

And yet she says: “I grew up in a church-going family - a family that believed in the importance of living out and expressing our faith. The people of faith I know don’t cling to religion because they are bitter. People embrace faith not because they are materially poor but because they are spiritually rich. Our faith is the faith of our parents and our grandparents. It is the fundamental expression of who we are and what we believe.”

...when it is politically expedient to do so.

On the eve of the visit of His Holiness to the USA, both Democrat candidates made indirect appeals to Roman Catholic voters. Senator Clinton mentioned the pope’s impending visit and praised his commitment to health and poverty issues around the world. In response to a question about when life began, Senator Clinton replied: “I believe that the potential for life begins at conception.”

Cranmer looks forward to her prominent pro-life advocacy.

Your Grace,

I have to point out an error in your post.

You say "People embrace faith not because they are materially poor but because they are materially rich." but it should read spiritually rich.

And yes I do agree with your posting as ever.

How McCain must love the Democrats.

Mr Dark Heretic,

Quite right, quite right. His Grace was typing in haste, and has corrected.

Forgiveness is in order. Barack Obama has much to learn, as do most people. See "Government Socialism is Not Christianity":

Embrace faith?! They'd do better to embrace Christ.

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Not correcting his Grace, but Hillary.

She stated "People embrace faith not because they are materially poor but because they are spiritually rich".

Surely Christians embrace faith not because they are spiritually rich but because they know they are spiritually poor and recognise and mourn this fact.

Faith is a response to God because of this and by faith I believe God fills this poverty with His spiritual riches.

Unfortunately Hillary (and possibly others) seems to have lost sight of this.

your grace
the deeper complexities of the gospels throw up occasional morsals for politicians , if only the quote of "ye shall have no other god but me" could be more convincing when using mass media.

elitists know there own kind as do well expensed politicians , the thief and beggar too take comfort in the sympathy of friends.

uncomfortable truths about success and failiure , use of resources and leaving a future for the children must be a problem for a nation that has waved its flagg on ecnomic success .

Hillary and her hubbie are bullshit merchants, so it does not warrant much attention to their utterances. A full five Pinocchio's
are, I believe, in order for the Clintons on all topics.

Bullshit merchants indeed, but attention is merited not because of what is said, but because of what it presupposes. That's how we find out what politicans really think.

Most Reverend Doctor Cramner!

Note her word "potential" not life begins. Her view has not changed.

I don't think prolifers will be fooled.

I do wish you would stop using the Orwellian term 'pro-life'. Implying that those who do not adopt a particular dogma (one which, incidentally, can result in death) are anti-life is offensive.
