Statement from ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp

October 12, 2016

Statement from ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp: Clinton Team “expresses breathtaking anti-Catholic bigotry.”

(WASHINGTON DC) — When the cameras are off and the doors are closed, to have senior Clinton campaign officials and advisers call practicing Catholics “backwards”, to mock a Saint of the Church like St. Thomas Aquinas, or to make fun of the baptizing of one’s children, demonstrates to voters who the real bigots are in this race.

The campaign has pushed a central theme to paint her opponent and his supporters as bigots.  It is important for voters to understand that the Clinton campaign – when in private – expresses breathtaking anti-Catholic bigotry.

Hillary Clinton tells us she likes to “go high,” but she and her campaign are as low as a snake’s belly.  If Mrs. Clinton does not fire these advisers immediately, she will have no moral authority on the issue of prejudice in our society.
