Why Did Chelsea Leave The Church At Age 6?

Kids are impressionable. And the mixed-message faith upbringing Chelsea Clinton had must have made an impact. While her mother has said that the Bible "is the biggest influence on my thinking," her policies say otherwise. Abortion and same-sex marriage are a couple of the big ones. The Bible says both are wrong.


But Chelsea is offended when people say her parents aren't good Christians. “I find it quite insulting sometimes when people say to my mom, my dad or me...that they question our faith," Chelsea said, as Life Site News reports. 

She shares that abortion was what turned her away from the church--at a very young age. “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 six in Sunday school," Chelsea said. "That’s a true story.”

Chelsea married a reformed Jew and had a mixed-faith ceremony. But she takes offense with her liberal friends who don't understand her faith.  "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," she said. "But I find it really challenging when people who are self-professed liberals kind of look askance at my family's history."

Life Site News reports that Chelsea has interest in running for office one day. What do you think of Chelsea's feelings towards how others view her family's faith? Let us know what you think in the Comments! Thank you!
