I’ve unsubscribed from Bill Randles blog.
In his recent post with the title “My One and Only Trump column…(I hope)” he continues the anti-Clinton rhetoric of earlier posts while continuing to claim he’s not trying to push or support Trump,
With that post he includes a link to a video that he has given the title: Hillary: Christians must change their Religion
I went to the link to see what was revealed.
The video starts with a lower screen caption saying
HILLARY: CHRISTIANS IN AMERICA MUST DENY THEIR FAITH IN CHRISTIANITY, ADHERE TO NEW LIBERAL LAWS
For some time a presenter primes the viewer for the terrible things the video will reveal about Clinton’s plans for followers of Jesus, the kind of thing encompassed in the fore-mentioned caption.
We are treated to a photo of an angry looking Clinton dominated by a statement made to appear like a command she is shouting at the viewer.
And finally we get to the “evidence”, a section of video featuring Clinton herself addressing an audience. Here is the FULL transcript of what she says within that video. Which I assume is the best evidence they have to support their claims about Clinton.
…far too many women are being denied critical access to reproductive healthcare and safe childbirth. All the laws we’ve passed don’t count for much if they’re not enforced. Rights have to exist in practice mot just on paper. Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will and deep seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.
As I have said and as I believe the advancement of the full participation of women and girls in every aspect of their society is the great unfinished business of the 21st century. And not just for women, but for everyone, and not just in faraway countries but right here in the United States.
Yes she does say something about religious beliefs having to be changed – what religion and what beliefs? They are unspecified. That is the only reference to religion within the excerpt screened.
Where is content that would justify the captions and even Bill Randles’ link title?
Considering the context of female reproductive health the religious beliefs and cultural codes she references could be anything – maybe something like female genital mutilation practiced in some sects of Islam, or Catholic denial of contraceptive methods. NOTHING is said about any need to deny the Christian faith, and nothing is said or even implied about kneeling to do so.
That video excerpt is followed by the return of the presenter, who excitedly continues with:
“Did you see that? Did you notice that she said that the change of Christian beliefs is the unfinished business of the 20th Century? This means that she wants to persecute Christians.”
Hold on – sorry, let’s back up to see where she said that again:
“I believe the advancement of the full participation of women and girls in every aspect of their society is the great unfinished business of the 21st century.”
Is that what the presenter has claimed she has said? Is there any truth to what he claims?
Is there any truth in anything he has claimed or in the captions emblazoned across the screen during the video that can be gathered from the “proof” offered in the footage of Clinton’s speech?
But then he continues, revealing the real agenda behind the video when he says : “God willing, Donald Trump will vanquish this witch…”
It is lies. It is deception. It is manipulative propaganda at its worse – all claimed to be conducted in the name of Christ, basically misusing the name of God for a political agenda.
And this all seemingly endorsed and promoted by Bill Randles, a bible teacher I once respected
