Julian Assange’s gradual October Surprise is turning out to be a death by a thousand paper cuts for Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Hillary’s handlers have just been caught disparaging yet another large segment of American society, but the mainstream media are helping her keep the shocking revelations under wraps.
“Catholicism is a bastardization of the faith,” read an email conversation among Hillary Clinton’s top aids. “They must be attracted to the systemic thought and severely backward gender relations.”
The leaked emails were chains between Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, John Podesta, and her communication director, Jennifer Palmieri, a former Barack Obama staffer. John Halpin, a representative from the Center for American Progress, was also included in the same strand of emails.
John Halpin made the derogatory comments about the Catholic church. He continued his anti-religious rant by criticizing Rupert Murdoch and Robert Thomson for raising their children in the faith.
Fox News host Megyn Kelly brought on Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, for his reaction.
“They believe that people who actually want to live by their faith are backwater people,” Perkins said. “[They see religion as a] glorified social club–if you want to…live your life according to [Scripture], you’re going to run into trouble with Hillary Clinton.”
He added that the emails show the Clinton campaign’s “hostility toward religious freedom,” and warned that “their religious freedom is at stake in this election.”
