There have been some awful things said about Catholics recently from a number of people in the Hillary Clinton campaign. You might have heard about them. But then again you might not have if you’re getting your news from the mainstream media.
From those WikiLeaks released emails, we have John Podesta, now the Clinton campaign chair, admitting to working to undermine Catholic teaching by creating “Catholic” groups that obfuscate true Catholic teaching on abortion and marriage.
Clinton campaign Director of Communications Jennifer Palmieri, “I imagine they think it is the most socially acceptable politically conservative religion.”
While those things were said by those with the campaign, Clinton herself said that deep seated Church teachings must be changed, such as the sacredness of life so that effort would seem quite in line with her thinking.
Shortly before the Al Smith Fundraising Dinner in which both candidates appeared, Cardinal Timothy Dolan reportedly said, “If it had been said about the Jewish community, if it had been said about the Islamic community, within 10 minutes there would have been an apology and a complete distancing from those remarks – hasn’t happened yet.”
