The Trump campaign has issued a statement regarding the release of emails by WikiLeaks revealing anti-Catholic bigotry within her campaign.
Catholic Online joins the Trump Pence campaign in asking the Clinton camp for an apology and accountability.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - We would like to echo the sentiment of the Trump/Pence campaign in calling for the resignation of those involved in these emails as well as an apology from the Clinton campaign.
Joseph Cella, the Catholic Liaison to the Trump/Pence Campaign, released the following statement regarding the anti-Catholic statements of Clinton campaign officials revealed in hacked e-mails published by Wikileaks:
For 30 years, Hillary Clinton has harbored open and extreme hostility to issues of importance to Catholics. She is for partial birth abortion and thinks taxpayers should pay for it. She also supports denying full and free exercise of the Catholic faith of the Little Sisters of the Poor, who have taken care of the elderly poor since 1839, through Obamacare's HHS mandate, recently struck down by the Supreme Court. The mandate would have forced these Catholic sisters to pay for contraceptives and abortion pills in their health care plan or else face crippling government fines that would have shut their doors and ended their charitable work if they refused to abide by this onerous and unconstitutional rule.
The emails published by WikiLeaks reveal the depths of the hostility of Hillary Clinton and her campaign toward Catholics, and the open anti-Catholic bigotry of her senior advisors, who attack the deeply held beliefs and theology of Catholics.
These Clinton advisors, viciously mocking Catholics as they have, turn the clock back to the days of the 20th century "No Catholics Need Apply" type of discrimination.
Hillary Clinton and her campaign should be ashamed of themselves and should immediately apologize to all Catholics and people of good will in the United States.
