Social media is filled with parents claiming their young children are political activists.

They make bizarre and shocking claims about the overtly political words and actions of children as young as 2.

Now Chelsea Clinton has joined in by claiming she left the church when she was 6 because of one shocking reason.

In a recent interview, Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of pro-abortion presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton, claimed she left the Baptist Church at the age of 6 because it held a strongly pro-life position. 

Chelsea claims she left the church before her parents

Clinton made the bizarre comment at a recent fundraiser for Hillary Clinton in a weak attempt to address evangelicals who have rightfully questioned her famous mother’s faith in God. 

She said that, as a 6-year-old, she got upset when Sunday School teachers talked about the Biblical reasons abortion is evil and wrong.

“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 claimed. “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.”

Chelsea’s comments were quoted by a New York Post columnist who got the information from a Democrat who took notes at the event.

The Southern Baptist Convention added Sanctity of Human Life Sunday, which marks the Sunday closest to the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, to the denominational calendar in 1985. 

And an accompanying sanctity of life Sunday school lesson was added to LifeWay Christian Resources curriculum used by many Baptist churches, in 1991.

An election loss returns Bill to church

Bill Clinton was baptized at age 9 at Park Place Baptist Church in Hot Springs, Arkansas. 

He dropped out of church when he got older, but then the shock of losing his reelection as governor of Arkansas in 1980 got him back to church.

He clearly was trying to appeal to Arkansas’s very conservative evangelical base which he knew he would need for any future run for office.

So, Clinton joined the 4,000-member Immanuel Baptist Church in Little Rock, Arkansas, even singing in the choir and studying the Bible under the guidance of the congregation’s longtime pastor, W.O. Vaught.

He of course would go on to win the presidency using his supposed newly found faith as a political issue.

But it seems Chelsea Clinton was way ahead of the quitting game, at least according to her story.
