(THE FEDERALIST) — A group of prominent African-American church leaders delivered a letter to Hillary Clinton on Monday calling on her to show them the same respect she shows “wealthy white donors.”
The letter, which is signed by 26 pastors and religious leaders, including Jacqueline Rivers of the Seymour Institute for Black Church and Policy Studies in Boston, states they’re concerned a Clinton presidency would mean their religious liberties would be under attack. In the letter, these leaders criticized Clinton for surrounding herself with individuals who are so hostile to religion.
“Key players on your staff have sought to subvert Catholic teaching on sexuality by planting externally funded groups in the church to advance a politically correct agenda,” the letter states, referring to an e-mail from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta calling on Catholics to overthrow the church’s “middle ages dictatorship.”
