We all know that Hillary Clinton shamelessly exploits her Methodist upbringing for political use, but newly released emails from WikiLeaks reveal how Mrs. Clinton truly views her fellow Christians.
Not only does the Democrat support abortion and gay marriage, both of which are frowned upon in the Christian faith, we now know that those closest to Mrs. Clinton despised Catholics and their “backward” beliefs.
According to a series of emails between John Halpin, a senior fellow at the far-left Center for American Progress, and top Clinton aides Jennifer Palmieri and John Podestam the three smear Catholics and their beliefs as being “backwards” and showing contempt for American Catholics and Conservative Catholics.
“Many of the most powerful elements of the conservative movement are all Catholic (many converts) from the SC and think tanks to the media and social groups,” Halpin writes to Podesta. “They must be attracted to the systematic thought and severely backwards gender relations and must be totally unaware of Christian democracy.”
Palmieri piles onto the Catholic bashing in her response.
“I imagine they think it is the most socially acceptable politically conservative religion,” Palmieri writes. “Their rich friends wouldn’t understand if they became evangelicals.”
After these latest emails were released, Hillary Clinton can no longer honestly claim to be a Christian given the contempt her team has for millions of religious Americans.
Are you surprised that Team Clinton looked down at Christians, specifically American Catholics in such a way, calling their views “backward”? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section below!
