As is being widely reported today, WikiLeaks recently released a set of emails featuring bigoted, anti-Christian diatribes from three staffers and advisors to Hillary Clinton. The leaked emails also included a confession from John Podesta, Clinton’s campaign chairman, to commissioning an effort via the Center for American Progress to launch a “Catholic spring” to foment rebellion within the Church against thousands of years of Catholic doctrine.

This should come as no surprise, however. Hillary Clinton’s anti-religious freedom policies aim to segregate people of faith away from the public square. This is the implicit goal of progressive policies like President Obama’s HHS mandate and the so-called ‘Equality Act.’ Given these radical, anti-religious positions, it’s not a shock to find out that Clinton’s top staffers hold bigoted, anti-Christian views.

These nasty comments were not directed solely at Catholics, either. Clinton staffers openly mocked evangelical Christians as well. They were ecumenical equal opportunity offenders.

It is also concerning that John Podesta, Clinton’s campaign chairman, is attempting to divide the Catholic Church through a series of front groups, which aim to pit Catholic against Catholic by encouraging practicing Catholics to deny Catholic doctrine. This is despicable.

These emails reveal a bigoted, anti-Christian attitude held by those who will be managing the day-to-day activities of our country if Clinton is elected. Catholics and Evangelicals should keep this in mind as they head to the voting booth in November.
