Chelsea Clinton denies affiliation with Church of Satan – The Denver Post

By Sarah Polus, The Washington Post

First her family was accused of being linked to a (nonexistent) child pedophilia group. Now Chelsea Clinton has taken to Twitter to debunk a claim that she and her husband practice satanism.

To quote Clinton herself: “Goodness gracious.”

The former first daughter defended a Twitter exchange with the Church of Satan in which both parties wished one another a happy new year. A Twitter user named Rhonda Kazmierski interpreted the interaction to mean that Clinton was aligned with the church’s views, writing in a since-deleted tweet, “If only @HillaryClinton could be as honest.”

Chelsea Clinton was quick to dismiss any speculation. “We can be civil, cheerful, respectful to & friends with people who don’t share our religious beliefs,” she responded in a tweet Wednesday. “Sometimes, we even marry them. I’m a Methodist & my husband is Jewish, thank you for asking. A very happy New Year to you Rhonda!”

The exchange between Clinton and the church was prompted by a Twitter thread in which Clinton was mentioned alongside model Chrissy Teigen and – somehow – the Hooters restaurant account. The series of tweets kicked off with Clinton’s empathetic response to claims that Teigen was involved in the false “Pizzagate” conspiracy theory.
