The left hates organized religion.
For eight years, the Obama administration conducted a war on Christianity.
And in one speech, Chelsea Clinton stoked this fire with an insane reason why she left the Church.
Democrats have lashed themselves to the mast of being pro-abortion and anti-religion.
Their support for homosexual marriage and abortion, combined with their hostility to religious liberty, left them no choice but to try and mobilize secular voters and millennials in order to win elections.
That messaging was on display during the 2016 campaign, which ended in disaster.
At one campaign stop, Chelsea Clinton related the insane and unbelievable story about how she left the Church.
She claimed she left her church at the age of six because her Sunday School teacher discussed the Church’s pro-Life position on abortion.
In a new interview, Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of pro-abortion presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, says she left the Baptist Church at the age of 6 because it has a strongly pro-life position opposing abortions.
Clinton made the comment at a recent fundraiser for Hillary Clinton in an attempt to address evangelicals who question her mother’s faith in God. She said she was upset when teachers in a Sunday School class talked about the wrongness of abortion.
“I find it quite insulting sometimes when people say to my mom, my dad or me . . . that they question our faith,” said Chelsea. “I was raised in a Methodist church and I left the Baptist church before my dad did, because I didn’t know why they were talking to me about abortion when I was 6 in Sunday School — that’s a true story.”
“My mother is very deeply a person of faith,” Chelsea said. “It is deeply authentic and real for my mother, and it guides so much of her moral compass, but also her life’s work.”
“I recognized that there were many expressions of faith that I don’t agree with and feel [are] quite antithetical to how I read the Bible,” Chelsea said. “But I find it really challenging when people who are self-professed liberals kind of look askance at my family’s history.”
Critics found it impossible to believe a six-year-old possessed deeply-held views on abortion.
@SethAMandel Because six-year-olds have such firm opinions on theological matters.

@EsotericCD This is why the left doesn't trust her. Her pandering is so outrageously and obviously false it makes no sense.

Democrats have alienated Middle America with their pro-abortion radicalization.
National Party Chairman Tom Perez echoed Chelsea Clinton’s extremism on the issue when he declared pro-Life Americans were not welcome in the party.
The Democrats’ insistence that abortions be conducted up to the moment of birth repulsed millions of Americans who previously supported the party.
Their rigid stance on social and cultural issues pushed away voters in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Wisconsin.
Donald Trump flipped 200 counties that Obama won, many in the key battleground states, and he did so largely because Democrats like Chelsea Clinton ceded the playing field by planting their flag on the hill of abortion-on-demand.
