Imagine If Anyone Said About Muslims What Clinton Aides Said About Catholics
By Josh Feldman | Mediaite
One of the bigger (and perhaps lesser-reported) revelations from the John Podesta emails is somewhat disparaging language Hillary Clinton aides used to describe Catholics.
A fellow at the Center of American Progress emailed Podesta and Jennifer Palmieri the following in 2011:
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 WSJ, are raising their kids Catholic. Friggin’ Murdoch baptized his kids in Jordan where John the Baptist baptized Jesus.
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.
It’s an amazing bastardization of the faith. They must be attracted to the systematic thought and severely backwards gender relations and must be totally unaware of Christian democracy.
