So, it seems that Hillary Clinton’s pastor has an interesting take on her election loss to Donald Trump.
Have you heard about this?
CNN is reporting on an email that Rev. Bill Shillady sent to the defeated candidate on the morning after the election, and it’s a doozy…particularly if you’re a Christian.
It seems that the reverend saw fit - as a way to console Clinton, apparently - to compare Election Day to Good Friday.
The day of Jesus’ crucifixion.
“It is Friday, but Sunday is coming,” Shillady’s email begins. “This is not the devotional I had hoped to write. This is not the devotional you wish to receive this day. While Good Friday may be the starkest representation of a Friday that we have, life is filled with a lot of Fridays.
“For the disciples and Christ's followers in the first century, Good Friday represented the day that everything fell apart. All was lost. The momentum and hope of a man claiming to be the Son of God, the Messiah who was supposed to change everything, had been executed.”
Hillary the Messiah, apparently.
“Today, you are experiencing a Friday,” Shillady later adds. “Your Friday is what happened in the last few weeks and last night in the tragic loss. But Sunday is coming!”
Hillary the resurrected.
This is just weird.
