Dems Mock Christians in Private, Preach in Public
In a new revelation from the WikiLeaks publications, Hillary Clinton’s director of communications Jennifer Palmieri once mocked conservative Christians in an email to John Halpin of the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank.
In the 2011 email, Palmieri said Republican Catholics “think [Roman Catholicism] is the most socially acceptable politically conservative religion.” She told Halpin, “Their rich friends wouldn’t understand if they became evangelicals.”
The subject of religion was broached by Halpin, who was relating a feature story that profiled Fox CEO Rupert Murdoch and his decision to raise his kids according to Catholic doctrine.
“Ken Auletta’s latest piece on Murdoch in the New Yorker starts off with the aside that both Murdoch and Robert Thompson, managing editor of the [Wall Street Journal], are raising their kids Catholic,” Halpin wrote. “Friggin’ Murdoch baptized his kids in Jordan where John the Baptist baptized Jesus.”
Halpin went on to speculate on the Murdochs’ wayward religious values.
“It’s an amazing bastardization of the faith,” Halpin added. “They must be attracted to the systematic thought and severely backwards gender relations and must be totally unaware of Christian democracy.”
Legendary Republican strategist Karl Rove told Megyn Kelly Tuesday night that the email exchange was nothing less than “religious bigotry.”
“They mock deeply held beliefs,” Rove said. “They mock the idea that two conservative Catholics would have their children baptized in the same river where John the Baptist baptized Jesus. I mean, this is really amazing that they would mock them. What Christians wouldn’t consider it a blessing to be able to afford to baptize their children in the Jordan River? I’m gonna say that it’s insensitive, but it strikes me that it really borders on bigotry, religious bigotry.”
Not that it should come as a surprise to anyone. What did you think these people thought? Did you think they had any respect whatsoever for people of Christian faith? They look down on believers like you wouldn’t believe. To them, God’s just a thing you say you believe in for the sake of public harmony. To them, religion is just tradition, like table manners and October baseball. They think it’s astounding and laughable that anyone would actually take it seriously.
What makes it even more disgusting is that they then have the gall to come out and lecture Christians on beliefs they themselves know nothing about. Just listen to Barack Obama get up on his high horse this week, talking about Donald Trump’s 2005 tape.
“I hear people saying, ‘I’m a Christian and so I’m all about forgiveness because nobody’s perfect,’” Obama said. “If someone does something terrible, I can forgive ‘em, I suppose, if they’re sincere about it, but I don’t want them necessarily leading the country.”
Awesome. When you and Hillary apologize for the terrible things you’ve done to this country, we’ll be happy to forgive. And we’ll be even happier when you are no longer leading the country.
