Posted On Oct 18 2016 by

Here is a summary of Donald Trump’s and Hillary Clinton’s views on social issues and religious freedom:

Issue Hillary Clinton Positions Donald Trump Positions Hillary Clinton quotes/voting  Donald Trump Quotes Other Quotes
Abortion is a woman’s unrestricted right  Strongly Agrees  Opposes  Clinton scores 100% by NARAL (National Abortion Rights Action League) on pro-choice voting record “I hate the concept of abortion.”  
Should Planned Parenthood get Federal Funds  Yes, strongly agrees  No, disagrees “I’m proud to stand with Planned Parenthood, I’ll never stop fighting to protect the ability and right of every woman in this country to make her own health decisions.” “Planned Parenthood should absolutely be defunded”  
Supports partial-birth abortion  Yes No  Voted NO on banning partial birth abortions except for maternal life    Mike Pence:
“I can’t understand is with Hillary Clinton, and now Senator Kaine by her side, to support a practice like partial birth abortion.,The very idea that a child that is almost born into the world could still have their life taken from them is just anathema to me, and I can’t conscience about a party that supports that.”
Believes in the Sanctity of Life  No Yes  “Mike Pence:
The sanctity of life proceeds out of the belief, that ancient principle, where God says before you were formed in the womb I knew you.”
Supports Same-Sex Marriage  Yes, Strongly Supports Opposes   “I just don’t feel good about it. I don’t feel right about it. I’m against it, and I take a lot of heat because I come from New York. You know, for New York it’s like, how can you be against gay marriage? But I’m opposed to gay marriage.”  “Hillary Clinton supports marriage equality and hopes the Supreme Court will come down on the side of same-sex couples being guaranteed that constitutional right,”
Keep God in the Public Square  Mixed Opinions Strongly Supports  “Far too many women are still denied critical access to reproductive health care and safe childbirth,… And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.”  What offends me is the way our religious beliefs are being treated in public. There are restrictions on what you can say and what you can’t say, as well as what you can put up in a public area. The belief in the lessons of the Bible has had a lot to do with our growth and success. That’s our tradition, and for more than 200 years it has worked very well. * (See below)  
Supports teaching abstinence from sex before marriage  No ? Speaking on defunding Planned Parenthood: “We’ve seen them in Florida where Jeb Bush funneled millions of taxpayer dollars into abstinence-only programs while gutting funds for crucial family planning programs.”    

*Trump, continued:  “For years you’d have beautiful mangers in public spaces and nobody complained about it.
Now? Mary and the baby Jesus are seldom shown. Even the word “Christmas” has somehow become controversial. Who in the world could be offended by someone saying “Merry Christmas”?! That greeting isn’t critical of any other religion, and it isn’t being disrespectful to those who practice another religion. It’s a wonderful tradition.
The same people who demand respect for their beliefs often don’t show respect for the beliefs of others. It seems like every week there is a negative ruling on some issue having to do with Christianity. I think it’s outrageous.”

Here are two good articles on Hillary Clinton’s dubious claim that she defends religious freedom:

Hillary Clinton Claims She “Defends Religious Freedom.” A Christian Writer’s Response is Priceless

and

Hillary loves religious freedom … only for Muslim foreign nationals

LifeNews.com reports that
““I am deeply troubled by the emails within the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign that show senior campaign officials smearing and ridiculing Roman Catholics and evangelicals.  This is anti-Christian bigotry, pure and simple.  It is sad, offensive, and un-American,” he told LifeNews.com.

  1. 3 of us neighbors were talking politics just the
    other day. One guy is totally blind; the other is blind in one eye; I need glasses! BUT, we all could see Hilary & Trump are cosmic opposites
    EPH 6:12 We are dealing with powers and principalities; not just flesh and bone. She is a destroyer by nature; he is a builder. Even the blind man could see this.
