Democrats attack those “backwards” conservative Catholics…
What exactly makes one a “Conservative Catholic”? Could it be someone as myself who will only attend the Traditional Latin Mass, while renouncing many of the rather silly (read: watered down, if not blatantly sacrilegious) novelties that have reared their collectively ugly heads since the closing of the Second Vatican Council?
Maybe those questionable “Conservative Catholics” are those who fought so hard back in the 1950s to have the words “Under God” added to the Pledge of Allegiance, as so eloquently penned by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in his letter of thanks to the Supreme Knight of the Catholic fraternal organization, the Knight of Columbus.
Possibly a “Conservative Catholic” is one who actually believes in set-in-stone moral absolutes, vice squishy political correctness (which seems to be all the rage under the Argentinian Marxist).
The definition could be applied to those hard-headed types who adhere to the out-dated notion that certain things are worth making a stand for… and possibly even dying for.
Namely, defending your conservative and orthodox religious beliefs against the anything goes mentality of the heterodox progressives who looks with disdain and contempt at the deplorable and irredeemable folk on the other side of the theological and political aisle.
But I digress. As noted in an article by Fox News Channel personality and radio talk show host Sean Hannity, a “Conservative Catholic” very well would be any given Mackerel Snapper who fails to worship at the altar of Hillary Clinton and the rest of the Democratic Party.

LEAKED EMAIL: Clinton Team Bashes ‘Backward’ Catholics
WikiLeaks has released another 1,000+ hacked emails from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta. The anti-secrecy organization announced part three of their leak on Tuesday afternoon:

Amongst the newly released documents, one email exchange in particular should draw the ire of conservatives–and American Catholics specifically.
The 2011 email, entitled “Conservative Catholicism”, comes from John Halpin, a senior fellow at the left-wing Center for American Progress (CAP), and is addressed to Jennifer Palmieri, formerly of the CAP and current Director of Communications for the 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign, and John Podesta. The email, in which traditional Catholic beliefs are derided as “backwards”, drips with contempt for Catholic Americans.
“Many of the most powerful elements of the conservative movement are all Catholic (many converts) from the SC and think tanks to the media and social groups,” Halpin writes to Podesta. “They must be attracted to the systematic thought and severely backwards gender relations and must be totally unaware of Christian democracy.”
Palmieri piles onto the Catholic bashing in her response.
“I imagine they think it is the most socially acceptable politically conservative religion,” Palmieri writes. “Their rich friends wouldn’t understand if they became evangelicals.”
Imagine the same had been written about Muslims.
