Hey remember the good ol’ days when questioning a political opponent’s religion was out of bounds?
Christian Post reports:
At a rally in Des Moines, Iowa, on Sunday, former secretary of state and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton mostly attacked her Republican rivals’ economic policies until the very end, where she began to wonder about the lack of Christian compassion of other politicians.
Wait. So we’re allowed to question our political opponent’s Christianity? I thought that was out of bounds. Or is that just for Republicans?
While Clinton did not specifically call out any candidate or person by name she bewailed the lack of compassion and “mean spiritedness” of others in politics.
“Did they not go and hear the same lessons I did in Sunday school,” asked Clinton. “Did they not sing the same hymns?” She continued questioning their morality and Christian theology by wondering, “Did they never hear, ‘there but for the grace of God go I?'”
We were told that we couldn’t question Obama’s Christianity, remember that?
Or how about when Joe Biden dropped this intellectual nugget on us: “The next Republican that tells me I’m not religious I’m going to shove my rosary beads down their throat.” And the media sided with him. Must have been his eloquence.
But I guess it’s ok now to question a political opponents’ religion. I must have missed a memo.
