Hillary Clinton wants to preach. That’s what she told Bill Shillady, her longtime pastor, at a recent photo shoot for his new book about the daily devotionals he sent her during the 2016 campaign. Scattered bits of reporting suggest that ministry has always been a secret dream of the two-time presidential candidate: Last fall, the former Newsweek editor Kenneth Woodward revealed that Clinton told him in 1994 that she thought “all the time” about becoming an ordained Methodist minister. She asked him not to write about it, though: “It will make me seem much too pious.”
Approach that link with caution, BTW, lest you pressure-test your gag reflex. The article is entirely unironic and reads like a campaign plant – it’s basically plugging yet another Hillary book, this one written by some preacher who is now claimed to be her long-time spiritual counselor. I didn’t know the Church of Satan used those.
