Bestselling author Eric Metaxas has responded to Hillary Clinton’s recent claim that she has worked for years to defend religious liberty by saying that if ever there was an enemy to religious liberty, the former Secretary of State would be it.
Metaxas, who authored a number of books including one on the “forgotten promise of American liberty” and one on prominent religious freedom advocate Dietrich Bonhoeffer, appeared on Fox News Thursday to comment on the Democratic presidential nominee’s recent op-ed in a Mormon-operated newspaper in which she claimed that she is the best candidate for religious freedom voters in the 2016 election.
“I’ve been fighting to defend religious freedom for years,” Clinton wrote for the Utah-based Deseret News this week. “As secretary of state, I made it a cornerstone of our foreign policy to protect the rights of religious minorities around the world — from Coptic Christians in Egypt to Buddhists in Tibet.”
Clinton went on to suggest that Donald Trump — who has previously called for a ban on Muslim immigration — would “undo centuries of American tradition and values.”
In response to Clinton’s claim that she is more prepared to defend religious liberties, Metaxas proclaimed that Clinton’s assertion is nothing more than a “cynical joke.”
