Catholic Bishop Warns Faithful About Hillary Clinton: ‘Please Don’t Listen to This EviI Woman”

So when former first lady Hillary Clinton, whom I assume to be of right mind, equates r-a*p.e as a tactic in w-arf-are with protecting un-bor-n babies, I was frankly at a loss.

Enter Bishop Joseph Strickland of the Diocese of Tyler, Texas, who had just the words I was looking for.

“Please, please don’t listen to this ev-il woman,” he tweeted Friday evening over a picture of Clinton. “Her lies and im-m-orality need to be silenced for the good of humanity.”

Strickland, who has something of a reputation for calling out lef-tist poli-ticia-ns for their e-v-il (that’s a strong word, I know, but it aptly describes most le-ftis-t poli-cy), was responding to comments Clinton made the previous day during an interview with Christiane Amanpour on PBS’s “Amanpour and Company.”

“[W]e are also in a period of time where there is a lot of pushback, and much of the progress that has been, I think, taken for granted by too many people is under a-tt-ack — literally under at-ta-ck in places like Ir-an or Afg-hanis-tan or Ukr-ai-ne where r-a-pe is a tactic of w-ar, or under att-a-ck by pol-itica-l and cultural fo-rces in a country like our own when it comes to women’s health care and bo-dily aut-onomy.”

There’s a lot of jargon and l-eft-ist do-g-whistling going on there, so let me translate into the vernacular: Women’s bodi-es in w-ar-torn countries are under a-tt-ack by soldiers who r-a-pe them, and they’re also under at-ta-ck in the United States by citizens who don’t want to allow them to m-ur-d-r their babies.

I can’t begin to describe the fal-se equivalency Clinton is positing here, or the thinking that underlies it. “E-v-il” is a pretty good summary. (I’d call it “deplo-rable,” but I’m not sure she’d catch the irony.)

Speaking of irony, the PBS interview is viewable only by subscribers — I guess the P in PBS stands for “paywall” now — but you can see the per-tinent video clip at LifeNews.

Bishop Stickland’s tweet enge-ndered thousands of likes and retweets, as well as replies that were overwh-elmingly positive — though not unanimously positive, of course. We’re talking about Twitter here, after all.

In addition, there were a few who — reasonably, in my opinion — suggested the bishop be a little more careful with his language.

I don’t know if I’d go that far, but, especially given all that’s gone on at Twitter in recent months, I would certainly support the pro-free-speech position here, even if that speech is e-vi-l.

Can’t argue with that. And however history judges Hillary Clinton, I know she’ll one day face a greater judgment even than that. “I tell you, on the day of judg-ment people will give account for every care-less word they speak, 37 for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned,” Jesu-s told His followers.

Clinton needs to heed the war-ning. So does Strickland. So do we all.
