Catholic group in the US demands top Clinton aide resign over leaked emails mocking Catholics

Jennifer Palmieri who is a top aide to Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is under fire from Catholic groups for the remarks she made in hacked emails published by WikiLeaks. In the emails she mocked Catholics and Evangelicals saying:
“I imagine they think it is the most socially acceptable politically conservative religion,” she wrote. “Their rich friends wouldn't understand if they became evangelicals.”
One of the Catholic groups has asked for Palmieri, who is Hillary Clinton's communications director  to resign.

The Catholic League, an anti-defamation organization, lashed out at the Clinton campaign for the exchange saying in a statement:
“These anti-Catholic remarks are bad enough but it makes one wonder what else Clinton’s chiefs and others associated with the campaign are saying about Catholics and Catholicism”.
A politically conservative group called Catholic Vote, is also asking Palmieri to resign.
They said:
“Everyone has a unique faith journey, and it’s just insulting to make blanket statements maligning people’s motives for converting to another faith tradition,” Brian Burch, the group’s president, said in a statement. “Had Palmieri spoken this way about other groups she would dismissed. Catholics will be watching Hillary Clinton to see whether she thinks our religious faith should be respected, or whether it’s fair game to mock us.”

You child molesting catholics need to take several seats, who the fuck gives a fuck about you and the dead people you worship.

If Hilary panders top the Catholic, religious votes, she will alienate the majority of her supporters. It will not happen, no apologies needed, none given.
