Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton was raised in the United Methodist church. Her desire to enter politics was, in part, influenced by her youth pastor, who emphasized social issues as an application to the Christian faith.

Hillary married Bill Clinton in 1975 in a Methodist ceremony.

After her father died in 1993 she re-examined her Methodist beliefs in relation to her political convictions to answer what she called America's "sleeping sickness of the soul."
