The False Metaphor: Separation of Church and State. Threat to Religious and Individual Freedom.

The enemies of the faith community seek leverage for their secular efforts behind this metaphor: “Separation of Church and State.”

Longtime Clinton confidante discussed infiltrating the Catholic Church with progressive ideology to foment revolution.

A newly leaked email shows Hillary Clinton’s current campaign chairman John Podesta and a Left-wing activist casually discussing fomenting “revolution” in the Catholic Church.

“There needs to be a Catholic Spring, in which Catholics themselves demand the end of a middle ages dictatorship and the beginning of a little democracy and respect for gender equality in the Catholic Church,” Sandy Newman, president and founder of the progressive nonprofit Voices for Progress, writes to Podesta in an email titled “opening for a Catholic Spring? just musing.”

The emails were leaked in the third round of releases of Podesta’s emails by WikiLeaks.

Newman, who is Jewish, admits he does not know much about the Catholic Church and isn’t volunteering personally to subvert Catholic teachings. “Even if the idea isn’t crazy, I don’t qualify to be involved and I have not thought at all about how one would ‘plant the seeds of the revolution,’ or who would plant them.”

In response, Podesta assures Newman to rest easy for he and his progressive pals have already created organizations explicitly designed to infiltrate the Catholic Church with progressive ideology, though he cautions that the time may not be right for full revolution — just yet…

Mrs. Clinton in a recent campaign video said: “..deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed…” The subject: “Abortion.” This quote validates that she is in line with the above released email revelations.

Whatever your belief system preference or if you prefer nothing at all, this revelation should be quite sobering to all Americans. The attack on the Catholic Church is an attack on all religions and a direct attack on Constitutional first amendment rights of every American. Freedom of individual consciences is now clearly threatened. Mrs. Clinton should make clear her intentions. If these members of her campaign, mentioned in this report, are not removed from their positions, and she not make a condemnation of such efforts against the Catholic Church and all Americans, then she admits her compliance in this injustice.

John Adams, our 2nd president, noted in 1798, “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

Supreme Court Justice William Rehnquist wrote in a 1985 opinion: “The wall of separation between church and state is a metaphor based on bad history. It should be frankly and explicitly abandoned.” 

Founding Fathers like Washington and Adams believed that Judeo-Christian principles provided an essential framework for preserving our liberties. We can see throughout our society’s present day culture how prophetic their beliefs truly were. And no where in the Constitution or the Bill of Rights is separation of church and state mentioned.
