Archbishop Charles Chaput, O.F.M. Cap. of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and previously Archbishop of Denver and Bishop of Rapid City, did not take too kindly to Clinton campaigners anti-Catholic bigotry and blistered them in a recent op-ed.
But let’s catch you up first.
WikiLeaks released emails between Hillary Clinton’s current director of communications, Jennifer Palmieri, and John Halpin of the Center for American Progress. The emails are brutal as Halpin rails against an entire religion.
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.
Excellent point. They can throw around “Thomistic” thought and “subsidiarity” and sound sophisticated because no one knows what the hell they’re talking about.
The Wall Street Journal explains subsidiarity:
It is the idea that social problems are best addressed by the nearest and smallest competent authority, rather than by a faraway state. Individual acts of charity can be highly effective, but the Clinton platform sees virtue only in a centralized bureaucracy sending out welfare checks regardless of results.
The Clintons and their people reject individuals taking care of themselves. They want the government to rule over everything so they can impose their will.
That wasn’t the worst of it.
Hillary’s Chairman John Podesta received an email from Sandy Newman calling for an Arab Spring within the Catholic Church.
There needs to be a Catholic Spring, in which Catholics themselves demand the end of a middle ages dictatorship and the beginning of a little democracy and respect for gender equality in the Catholic church. Is contraceptive coverage an issue around which that could happen.
We created Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good to organize for a moment like this. But I think it lacks the leadership to do so now. Likewise Catholics United.
They are advocating subverting the Catholic religion by attacking some of its core beliefs.
The Archbishop describes an encounter he had with Obama flunkies, “Both men were obvious flacks for the Obama campaign and the Democratic Party — creatures of a political machine, not men of the Church; less concerned with Catholic teaching than with its influence. And presumably (for them) bishops were dumb enough to be used as tools, or at least prevented from helping the other side.”
He continued decrying the current Obama administration and how these people have vigorously attacked religious believers, “Thanks to their work, and activists like them, American Catholics helped to elect an administration that has been the most stubbornly unfriendly to religious believers, institutions, concerns and liberty in generations.”
But here’s where it gets good.
But bad can always get worse. I’m thinking, of course, of the contemptuously anti-Catholic emails exchanged among members of the Clinton Democratic presidential campaign team and released this week by WikiLeaks.
The Archbishop then referenced an email from a non-Catholic attorney.
I was deeply offended by the [Clinton team] emails, which are some of the worst bigotry by a political machine I have seen. [A] Church has an absolute right to protect itself when under attack as a faith and Church by civil political forces. That certainly applies here …
These bigots are actively strategizing how to shape Catholicism not to be Catholic or consistent with Jesus’ teachings, but to be the ‘religion’ they want. They are, at the very core, trying to turn religion to their secular view of right and wrong consistent with their politics. This is fundamentally why the Founders left England and demanded that government not have any voice in religion. Look where we are now. We have political actors trying to orchestrate a coup to destroy Catholic values, and they even analogize their takeover to a coup in the Middle East, which amplifies their bigotry and hatred of the Church.
Whether you are Catholic or not, these revelations should scare the crap out of you. Clinton and her flunkies along with Obama have an outright hatred of Christians. They want to destroy belief in Jesus Christ and force people to worship government. As the non-Catholic attorney alludes, this is vehemently anti-American behavior.
Hillary Clinton and her surrogates are a threat to religion everywhere. We can NEVER allow her to use the power of the government to attain her goals and destroy religion!
