    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA/AP) — A newly-leaked email from the latest
    Wikileaks dump appeared to show key Hillary Clinton aides making
    derogatory statements about Catholicism and evangelical

    The exchange was part of a 2011 email chain between Clinton
    campaign spokeswoman Jennifer Palmieri, campaign chairman John
    Podesta and John Halpin from the Center for American Progress.

    Under the subject line of “Conservative Catholicism”, Halpin
    makes reference to Fox CEO Rupert Murdoch and Wall Street
    Journal managing editor Robert Thompson for “raising their kids

    “Friggin’ Murdoch baptized his kids in Jordan where John the
    Baptist baptized Jesus”, Halpin said.

    He goes on to claim that “(m)any of the most powerful elements
    of the conservative movement are all Catholic”, which he
    describes as “an amazing bastardization of the faith” that
    includes “severely backwards gender relations”.

    “It’s an amazing bastardization of the faith. They must be
    attracted to the systematic thought and severely backwards
    gender relations and must be totally unaware of Christian
    democracy”, wrote Halpin.

    Podesta does not respond to the email chain, but Palmieri
    replies, “I imagine they think it is the most socially
    acceptable politically conservative religion. Their rich friends
    wouldn’t understand if they became evangelicals.”

    Catholic League president Bill Donahue said the emails “reveal
    anti-Catholicism on the part of the Clinton campaign” and called
    for Clinton to “sanction Podesta and Palmieri immediately.”

    A statement from Donahue read in part: “These anti-Catholic
    remarks are bad enough, but it makes one wonder what else
    Clinton’s chiefs, and others associated with the campaign, are
    saying about Catholics and Catholicism.

    “If Trump’s inner circle spoke with derision about transgender
    persons, the sirens would be sounded by the mainstream media and
    his operatives would be hung out to dry,” said Donahue.

    The Clinton campaign would not confirm the authenticity of
    Podesta’s leaked emails, noting that Russian hackers often
    fabricate documents.

    Podesta told the Associated Press the FBI is investigating
    Russia’s possible role in hacking thousands of his personal
    emails, an intrusion he said Donald Trump’s campaign may have
    been aware of in advance.

    While Podesta didn’t directly accuse Trump of assisting in any
    Russian meddling with American campaigns, he suggested Trump was
    either “willfully ignoring” intelligence officials’ warnings
    about Russian government involvement or “an unwitting agent of
    the Russian Federation.”

    Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak dismissed the
    accusations as untrue.
