FAITH UNDER FIRE: Clinton campaign spokeswoman mocked Catholics, evangelicals in 2011 email exchange

For the most Liberal Democrats are “non-believers” who lie about being people of faith. 
If that isn’t bad enough, they are openly hostile toward people of faith and spare no opportunity to crush expressions of faith in the guise of “fairness”.  This is exactly what the whole “transgender bathroom rights” and “baking a cake of a Gay wedding” are all about.  It’s an incremental assault on the faith community with the goal of destroying religion.   
Fox News reports a top spokeswoman for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign mocked Catholics and evangelical Christians in a 2011 email exchange exposed by Wikileaks this week.
In the exchange reported Tuesday night on Fox News Channel's "The Kelly File", Jennifer Palmieri, now the Clinton campaign's director of communications, says that politically conservative Catholics 

"think [Roman Catholicism] is the most socially acceptable politically conservative religion. Their rich friends wouldn't understand if they became evangelicals."
Palmieri was responding to a message from John Halpin, a fellow at the liberal think tank Center for American Progress. Halpin remarked on a magazine article that discussed 21st Century Fox CEO Rupert Murdoch's decision to raise his children in the Catholic faith.
"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 [Wall Street Journal], are raising their kids Catholic," Halpin wrote. "Friggin' Murdoch baptized his kids in Jordan where John the Baptist baptized Jesus."
