Chelsea Clinton is coming to the defense of her mother's deep faith, saying it has guided her "moral compass" and "life's work," and that it's "insulting" when people question her family's religion.

The New York Post reports that in comments at a recent fundraiser – provided by an unnamed source – the former first daughter talked of her own upbringing, first as a Baptist, and then as a Methodist.

"My mother is very deeply a person of faith," Chelsea said, the Post reports "It is deeply authentic and real for my mother, and it guides so much of her moral compass, but also her life’s work."

"I find it quite insulting sometimes when people say to my mom, my dad or me . . . that they question our faith," she added.

"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 6 in Sunday school — that’s a true story," she said.

"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," Clinton said. "But I find it really challenging when people who are self-professed liberals kind of look askance at my family’s history."
