Two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s shocking defeat in November 2016 was clearly only a tragedy for her and the wealthy backers who had invested so much money into her candidacy, hoping for a big return when she got into the White House.
However, Hillary’s lackeys won’t stop attempting to present her loss as more than just the failure of an incompetent, intensely disliked career politician. Hillary’s own pastor even went as so far as to compare the circumstances of her election defeat to Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection.
Wrote Rev. Bill Shillady, the head of the United Methodist City Society, in an email the day after Election Day, “It is Friday, but Sunday is coming. This is not the devotional I had hoped to write. This is not the devotional you wish to receive this day. While Good Friday may be the starkest representation of a Friday that we have, life is filled with a lot of Fridays.”
He continued, “Even though Jesus told his followers three days later the temple would be restored, they had no idea of what that Sunday would be. They betrayed, denied, mourned, fled and hid. They did just about everything BUT feel good about Friday and their circumstances.”
Hillary’s pastor added, “For us, Friday is the phone call from the doctor that the cancer is back. It’s the news that you have lost your job. It’s the betrayal of a friend, the loss of someone dear. Friday is the day that it all falls apart and all hope is lost. We all have Fridays. But, as the saying goes, ‘Sunday’s coming!’ Today, you are experiencing a Friday. Your Friday is what happened in the last few weeks and last night in the tragic loss. But Sunday is coming!” He concluded, “You know one of my favorite sayings is ‘God doesn’t close one door without opening another, but it can be hell in the hallway.’ My sister Hillary. You, our nation, our world is experiencing a black Friday. Our hope is that Sunday is coming. But it might well be hell for a while.” Do you think comparing Hillary’s defeat to Jesus’ crucifixion is ridiculous?
