“In a June 2014 New York Times Sunday Book Review, the newspaper asked Hillary Clinton a series of literature-based questions. One of the inquiries sought to determine the one book that made her who she is today.
“‘At the risk of appearing predictable,” she responded, ‘the Bible was and remains the biggest influence on my thinking.”
Clinton noted that she was “raised reading it” and had memorized many of its passages. She contended that the Bible has guided her throughout her life.
“‘I still find it a source of wisdom, comfort and encouragement,’ she concluded.
“Far too many women are denied access to reproductive health care and safe childbirth, and laws don’t count for much if they’re not enforced. Rights have to exist in practice — not just on paper,” …
“Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will,And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed. As I have said and as I believe, the advancement of the full participation of women and girls in every aspect of their societies is the great unfinished business of the 21st century and not just for women but for everyone — and not just in far away countries but right here in the United States.”
Which brings us to a Limerick:
Will Hillary be our Mullah
with treachery just like Delilah?
With her Bible as guide
takes us all for a ride.
But babies are precious, not moolah.
