Some of Hillary Clinton’s top campaign staff appears to hold a deep reservoir of contempt for Catholics and Evangelical Americans, according to the latest batch of WikiLeaks emails.
The new revelations came from a 2011 email exchange between Campaign Chairman John Podesta, Communications Director Jennifer Palmiere and John Halpin from the Center for American Progress.
The emails portrayed Conservative Catholicism as a “bastardization of the faith” and seemed to imply that Evangelicals are a bunch of impoverished country bumpkins.
Mr. Halpin fired off an email titled, “Conservative Catholicism” to Mr. Podesta and Ms. Palmieri referencing a New Yorker article written by Ken Auletta.
The article pointed out that 21st Century Fox Chairman and Fox News CEO Rupert Murdoch along with NewsCorp Chairman Robert Thomson raised their children Catholic.
