ARTICLE: Imagine supporting a presidential candidate and then discovering that your preferred candidate and her election team have utter contempt for you and your dearly held faith-based beliefs.
Well, in this regard, there is no need to resort to your imagination, because in reality, a batch of recently released WikiLeaks emails have torn back the curtain on the religious bigotry of the Hillary Clinton campaign. It is clear: The Clinton team despises Catholics and Christian evangelicals. Among other things, we should ask, what does Clinton’s revealed campaign derision say about her respect for the First Amendment and freedom of religion?
In Clinton’s view, her infamous “basket of deplorables” comment seems to include Christians, too. But I have news for her: Those same law-abiding American citizens she arrogantly dismisses as “deplorable” and “irredeemable” have already been deemed to be saved by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. We don’t want or require Clinton’s imprimatur of government-subsidized redemption.
But at the very least, she should apologize to Catholics and evangelicals who don’t appreciate her campaign’s ugly comments of religious defamation and intolerance. After all, confession is good for the soul.
