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.”

“It’s an amazing bastardization of the faith,” Halpin added. “They must be attracted to the systematic thought and severely backwards gender relations and must be totally unaware of Christian democracy.”
