If you’ve been following the latest Wikileaks emails as of late, you’ll find this to be yet another bombshell among countless other bombshells.
In the email, Podesta mentions a group called Catholics United as a similar “spring movement.” A little research shows Catholics United is a far-left, progressive non-profit political organization founded in 2005 ( and funded by George Soros), which aggressively supports abortion, the federal funding of abortion through Obamacare, and marriage reform. All of which is clearly against the Magisterium.
For me, personally, I wasn’t very surprised by this. And perhaps anyone else who’s been paying attention to the state of the Church as of late may feel this way, too. If anything, it just sheds light on some of the plotting devised by the wicked in secret.
I’ve posted this article here as means to inform and also as a call to Christians (Catholics and non-Catholics) to vigilance and discernment. This kind of infiltration is happening in all churches; Catholic and Protestant.
I can’t help but recall some of Archbishop Sheen’s prophetic words:
“[Satan] will set up a counterchurch which will be the ape of the [Catholic] Church … It will have all the notes and characteristics of the Church, but in reverse and emptied of its divine content.”
We are living in the days of the Apocalypse, the last days of our era. The two great forces – the Mystical Body of Christ and the Mystical Body of the anti-Christ – are beginning to draw battle lines for the catastrophic contest.
The False prophet will have a religion without a cross. A religion without a world to come. A religion to destroy religions. There will be a counterfeit Church.”
Remember, this is spiritual warfare. Truth and prayer are our weapons. We have nothing to fear if we stand with Jesus Christ. Our Lady has been sent among us by the Lord to help us. We’re in good hands!
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.
“We created Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good to organize for a moment like this. But I think it lacks the leadership to do so now. Likewise Catholics United. Like most Spring movements, I think this one will have to be bottom up,” Podesta writes.
The conversation further reveals the contempt with which radical progressives view Catholics and the Catholic Church. On Monday, WikiLeaks published an email showing Democratic operatives mocking conservative Catholics.
A scholar at the Left-wing Center for American Progress emailed Podesta in 2011 bashing then-Fox News CEO Roger Ailes for his Catholic Faith.
“It’s an amazing bastardization of the faith,” John Halpin wrote to Podesta, and Jennifer Palmieri, now the communications director of the Clinton campaign. “They must be attracted to the systematic thought and severely backwards gender relations and must be totally unaware of Christian democracy.”
“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.”
