Former Spiritual Adviser to Bill Clinton Says Christians Should Vote for Hillary
Tony Campolo is a social liberal who speaks to many conservative groups who says that he is opposed to homosexual relationships while his wife, Peggy, is
not. They play a good cop-bad cop role. Tony Campolo has been described as “probably the most influential Christian communicator to Baby Boomers and young people in the English language. He writes a book a year, travels widely, is a professor of sociology, and has Italian-American parents.”
I’m not sure what relevance there is for having Italian-America parents. So do I, and Campolo and I are on opposite ends of the political spectrum
Campolo has not been in the limelight for quite some time. He became very popular to the general public when he gave pastoral advice to Bill Clinton during the former president’s his sexual relationship with Monica Lewinsky.
Campolo is back in the news and calling on Christians to vote for the pro-abortion, pro-same-sex marriage, sexual enabler, liar, cover-up artist, and fake Hillary Clinton for president.

PHILADELPHIA – Tony Campolo, false teacher and former spiritual adviser to Bill Clinton, is urging Christians to vote for Hillary as president, claiming that she is a Christian woman who will help to lower the abortion rate in America.
“I like Hillary Clinton. We are personal friends,” he wrote in a recent article for Religion News Service. “I am more than willing to do all I can to help Hillary Clinton get elected. Should she ask me to organize an Evangelicals for Hillary committee, I would be more than willing to do so. I believe in her. And you should too.”
As previously reported, Campolo serves as one of the leaders at Mount Carmel Baptist Church in West Philadelphia, which is part of the National Baptist Convention USA and American Baptist Churches USA. In the 1990’s, he served as a spiritual adviser to then-President Bill Clinton, including during the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
Campolo’s wife, Peggy, is a homosexual activist and believes that the Church should be accepting of same-sex “marriage.” While Campolo personally opposes same-sex nuptials, he believes the government should recognize civil unions. Campolo is also regarded as being a mystic as he teaches that his “intimacy with Christ was developed gradually over the years, primarily through what Catholic mystics call ‘centering prayer.’”
He asserts in his 2008 book “Partly Right” that the Bible is not without error, as “an evangelical has a very high view of Scripture though not necessarily inerrancy,” and has also commented to reporters that he believes non-Christians might go to Heaven.
“[W]e do not know who Jesus will bring into the kingdom and who He will not,” Campolo told the Edmonton Journal in 2007. “We are very, very careful about pronouncing judgment on anybody. We leave judgment in the hands of God and we are saying Jesus is the way. We preach Jesus, but we have no way of knowing to whom the grace of God is extended.”
On April 13, in an article entitled “Why Christians Should Vote for Hillary,” Campolo called upon Christians to vote for Clinton as president, and made his case as to why he believes she is the right person for the job.
“Some of my evangelical friends raise questions about her views on abortion,” he stated. “But Hillary Clinton is one of the few candidates on the political stage who has a plan for cutting the abortion rate in America by at least 50 percent.”
“She is committed to addressing [economic] problems, and thus diminishing the urgency that drives so many oppressed women into having abortions,” Campolo said. “As a pro-life Democrat, I am encouraged by the possibility that Hillary could be our next president.”
