On April 23, 2015, in her keynote address at the 2015 Women in the World Summit, 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton told attendees that “religious beliefs” that condemn "reproductive rights … have to be changed.” Mrs. Clinton said, “Rights have to exist in practice, not just on paper. Laws have to be backed up with resources, and political will,” she said. “Deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs, and structural biases have to be changed.” What religious beliefs does Mrs. Clinton want changed with said change enforced by the government? According to Mrs. Clinton, “America moves ahead when all women are guaranteed the right to make their own health care choices, not when those choices are taken away by an employer like Hobby Lobby (which is owned by Christians and observes Biblical standards - RPT).” There you have it. If you adhere to the religious belief that abortion is murder, as taught in the Bible, then you and the Bible need to be changed and the government must force and enforce that change, according to Hillary Clinton.
This all being said, I also have to wonder if Mrs. Clinton intends to use the government – especially if elected to the presidency, to force Christians to accept any other sin. Based on her December 2011 speech in Geneva when she said, “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 … no [religious] practice or tradition trumps the human rights that belong to all of us,” I think it is clear that she would likely use governmental enforcement to try and take homosexuality off the “sin list” (as NYTimes columnist Frank Bruni puts it).
