NEW YORK, January 5, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) — Chelsea Clinton offered “Happy New Year!” greetings to the Church of Satan.
The daughter of former presidential candidate and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former president Bill Clinton mentioned that last year she and the Satanists “were put on a few threads together.” A Twitter thread is a conversation on the social networking site.
She doesn’t mention how or why, but she tags the Luciferian “church.” She added that this year she was tagged with Hooters, the bar chain known for its scantily-clad servers.
Tweeting to a friend, she concluded, “What a time to be alive!”
The Church of Satan took note of her Twitter nod and tweeted back, “The never ending excitement here is never ending.”
To which Chelsea replied to the Satanists, “It’s been so long! Happy New Year!” The Devil worshippers responded, “Same to you!”
The never ending excitement here is never ending.

The exchange was met with praise from liberal social media users, calling Chelsea “graceful” and “classy.”
It also caused a backlash of jokes from conservatives, such as one woman who tweeted, “At least Chelsea Clinton is open about worshiping Satan. If only Hillary Clinton could be as honest.”
Chelsea defended her “Happy New Year” wish to the Church of Satan by tweeting, “We can be…friends with people who don’t share our religious beliefs. Sometimes, we even marry them. I’m a Methodist & my husband is Jewish.”
“Imagine if Donald Trump Jr. cheerfully wished David Duke or anyone else controversial or considered a white supremacist/Nazi/KKK a Happy New Year,” the Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft opined. “The media would absolutely go crazy!”
“Even worse, Trump supporters would be pummeled if they supported the cheerful exchange and called it ‘classy,’” Hoft continued. “The left embraces the Church of Satan more than they do Trump supporters. Let that sink in.”
Chelsea revealed in 2016 that in her youth she left her dad’s Baptist Church and joined the Methodists because she believes in abortion.
