Clinton prefers schism?

I see Her Royal Majesty Hillary Clinton is now proclaiming that True Political Correctness demands hiking up one's petticoats and storming out in a Royal Huffe whenever one's pastor says aught in the least disagreeable to the Well-Tuned Sensibility.

The irony, of course, is that that's what Henry VIII did, proclaiming himself the head of the Church of England (and Anne Boleyn the head of naught but the Footstoole of hys daughter's Throne, ironically enough.)

That's the charitable view.

The less sporting, but more accurate, view is that Hillary Clinton always unchurches herself when "her" pastor says something challenging — such as supporting the view that the Ugly American is back in spades.

Clinton is a churchwoman of easy conviction, in other words — and a practicing agnostic any hour not bookended between elevensies and high noon of a Sunday morning.
