Flashback: Hillary compared religious opposition of LGBT agenda to honor killings, female genital mutilation

Hillary bark religious honor killingsAn article published Saturday at PJMedia reminds us that Democrat Hillary Clinton has no love whatsoever for conservative Christians and in 2011, compared religious opposition to the radical LGBT agenda to honor killings, widow burning, and female genital mutilation.

“The third, and perhaps most challenging, issue arises when people cite religious or cultural values as a reason to violate or not to protect the human rights of LGBT citizens. This is not unlike the justification offered for violent practices towards women like honor killings, widow burning, or female genital mutilation,” she said in December 2011.  “Some people still defend those practices as part of a cultural tradition. But violence toward women isn’t cultural; it’s criminal. Likewise with slavery, what was once justified as sanctioned by God is now properly reviled as an unconscionable violation of human rights.”

Tyler O’Neil added:

In other words, if religious people oppose gay marriage and special legal protections for transgender people, that is tantamount to religious violence and morally comparable to honor killings and slavery. This interpretation is extremely uncharitable to religious conservatives, who do not hesitate to condemn violence against homosexuals, and who most strongly object to being forced to partake in gay weddings, which they see as a violation of religious freedom.

Is America headed for a recession?

And as O’Neil observed, Clinton has repeatedly targeted religious freedom under the guise of fighting “discrimination.”

“Here’s the problem,” O’Neil wrote, “the laws which promote religious freedom do not discriminate against LGBT people. The religious freedom laws only allow businesses to refuse to serve gay weddings (when they have a religious exemption, and since there are many other businesses which will happily do so), and allow churches to operate on their beliefs that people are born male and female and should not change their gender.”

He went on to call Clinton’s efforts to force change in religious doctrines “insincere and insidious.”

Remember, this is a woman who said that Americans must change their religious views on certain social issues to suit her.

O’Neil’s entire post, which can be seen here, is well worth reading.
