Hillary Clinton’s longtime pastor has told CNN that Hillary now expresses an interest in preaching. Far be it from me to discourage anyone who feels called by the Lord (or, in this case, to make any predictable, too-easy attempts at humor), but the Rev. Dr. William S. Shillady said something else in that same interview that does cry out for comment.

He said that when he woke up on the morning after the election, he felt the way he supposed the Apostles felt on Good Friday. “Their leader, master and savior was dead and gone and they didn’t know what to do.”

Really? Rev. Shillady, I realize you are close to Hillary Clinton and that perhaps you were at a loss when she didn’t get to claim her expected victory. But do you actually think of her as a “leader, master and savior”? Were you as devastated at Hillary’s electoral loss as the Apostles must have been after Jesus was crucified and his body placed in the tomb? If you can search your soul and still feel that way, you have my prayers.
