Hillary Clinton’s ‘Devotions’: Plagiarized
Lest there be confusion, this is the same Hillary Clinton who was Planned Parenthood’s “Champion” of abortion and who said, last year, that the core beliefs of “religions”–that is, Christianity–“have got to change” to accommodate and “affirm” abortion and public sodomy.
That Hillary is the subject of a recent book, Strong for a Moment Like This: The Devotions of Hillary Rodham Clinton, by a Rev. Shillady–relish the irony of that name–the Clinton family pastor–more irony. With the thinly veiled likening of Hillary to Queen Esther, we go beyond irony into uncharted, murky waters of I don’t know what. What lies beyond irony?
The news turns out to be what we’d expect. Right smack-dab in the middle of the book is a prayer written not by Mr. Shillady–who named this guy? Charles Dickens?–but by someone else who was not given credit for it. Usually we call that plagiarism. But as any liberal would, Mr. Shillady says it was only a mistake, nobody could have been as surprised as he was when he found out the prayer had actually been written by another man, and he’ll give the guy due credit in subsequent editions and everything’ll be just hunky-dory.
It’s raining like mad and this is what I’m reading about instead of working on my own book. I have bypassed the truly disastrous news of the day in favor of this wee tidbit of cultural decay.
I suppose we expect our politicians to be hypocrites, especially if their last name happens to be Clinton. But this is a bit thick even for Hillary. I mean, really–plagiarizing a prayer?
And we’re supposed to be sorry that she’s not our president. The nooze media all tell us so.
