Many have come out in support of Hillary Clinton, who noted in Brooklyn, New York, this week that it is "the first time in our nation's history a woman will be a major party's nominee," including award-winning gospel singer Yolanda Adams. However not all of Adams' Christian fans are happy about it.

"Today is a day of Historic Significance because once again we make history as a country," Adams wrote on Facebook. "Congrats to Dem Nom Sec Hillary Clinton!! God's best to you me dear."

Thousands of responses followed, many celebrating Clinton while others selecting the angry face emoticon on the social media site to express their disapproval.

"As a Christian who is pro life, I cannot believe that a Christian could support Hillary who is not only pro choice, but a big supporter of planned parenthood- The innocent are never given a voice, nor a choice- We must take a stand for God's gifts of life!!" One user responded to Adams.

Another wrote, "What makes Hillary Clinton God's best for America? I don't think she is! Why is America & even the Christians supporting candidates who will "relegate God to the background! "

Someone else stated, " I do not understand your support of her. Nothing she does lines up with the word of God."

Although Clinton's liberal and pro-choice policies have been considered counter Christian by many conservatives believers, many of Adams' supporters shared in her excitement over the victory.

"Congratulations, Mrs Hillary Clinton, wishing you God's best in Jesus mighty name amen," a comment read.

"I Love Hillary Clinton, She will be the next President of the U.S. That's My Girl! She is a LADY," another facebooker added.

Others maintained that although they are not pleased with either candidate, Clinton is the best choice out of the two.

"Having very limited person's to vote for she is the less of two evils. Lord have mercy on the nation because we are in big trouble either way...Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord and those He has chosen for HIS inheritance," someone else noted.

Adams was not the only popular Christian to congratulate the Democratic presidential nominee. Evangelist Franklin Graham, despite their differences, also sent his regards to Clinton on Tuesday after she clinched enough delegates to claim the 2016 nomination. On Monday, the former Secretary of State surpassed the required 2,384 delegates needed to win the party's nomination.

Graham, the president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, took to Facebook with his congratulatory post.

"It seems congratulations are in order to Hillary Clinton this morning," Graham wrote. "According to the Associated Press, she now has enough delegates to win the Democratic nomination, even though Bernie Sanders disagrees and pledges to fight on. As I've said since the beginning of the election season, I'm not endorsing any candidates—but I am appealing to all Americans to pray."
