Hillary and evangelicals: ‘The Antichrist is here’
“In Hillary’s case, it’s not so much that she wants to project herself as a religious virtuoso, it is that she wants to avoids the stigma of a label that was unfairly applied to her in the early ‘90s of being a radical, godless feminist,” Berlinerblau told me. “And she gives off the impression of being a solid religious citizen, of being steeped in her church since childhood. It’s defensive. She is not letting people accuse her of being some godless, feminist, blue state politician.
“What’s the prize? The prize is evangelical voters.”
Still, the perspective in this cartoon is one many evangelicals have of Clinton. It’s hard to know if she’ll be able to overcome it.
