Yes, I am a practicing Roman Catholic. I am writing this article as a citizen concerned about the Catholic Church specifically, all Christian Churches in general and the Constitution of the United States of America.
I am currently writing a second 20/20 Vision book entitled 20/20: A Clear Vision for Our Future. In this book I explore “Restoring the Constitution.” I researched the First Amendment. It reads:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion,
So what got my attention? A recently released email exchange that reveals Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and the Voices for Progress president Sandy Newman discussing an “opening for a Catholic spring” to move the religion away from “a Middle Ages dictatorship.”
In the email conversation released by WikiLeaks as part of the “Podesta Leaks,” Newman wrote an email to Podesta titled, “Re: opening for a Catholic Spring? just musing . . .”. Newman writes he believes “There needs to be a Catholic Spring, in which Catholics themselves demand the end of a middle ages dictatorship”:
This whole controversy with the bishops opposing contraceptive coverage even though 98% of Catholic women (and their conjugal partners) have used contraception has me thinking . . . 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. Is contraceptive coverage an issue around which that could happen. The Bishops will undoubtedly continue the fight. Does the Catholic Hospital Association support of the Administration's new policy, together with "the 98%" create an opportunity?
This smacks of the Clinton Campaign emulating the words and works of Adolph Hitler. Who else could they have borrowed this evil idea from? Did they dream this up on their own? They obviously had outside help. Who from? John F. Kennedy, the 1st Catholic President. I don’t think so! Certainly not from Democrat President Harry S. Truman who said:
“The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount…If we don’t have a proper fundamental moral background, we will finally end up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the State.” ― Harry Truman
Sandy Newman confesses his perspective may be based on a “total lack of understanding of the Catholic church,” but he is wants to “plant the seeds of the revolution:”
Of course, this idea may just reveal my total lack of understanding of the Catholic church, the economic power it can bring to bear against nuns and priests who count on it for their maintenance, etc. 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.
Podesta confirmed he believes Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good and Catholics United were created to “organize for a moment like this”:
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.
Podesta again concurred with the concept of a “Spring movement” suggested contacting other people to move it along:
Like most Spring movements, I think this one will have to be bottom up. I'll discuss with Tara. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend is the other person to consult.
Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good claims to be an organization dedicated to inclusiveness and promoting the “social justice mission of Pope Francis and the Catholic Church.” It has been criticized for its Progressive views on social issues.
Another set of released emails reveals Podesta and Clinton allies mocking Catholics for their faith. One of the emails shows Clinton campaign communications director Jennifer Palmieri saying people become Catholic because it is considered “the most socially acceptable politically conservative religion.”
Their continued assertion of the (falsely applied) separation of church and state which was intended to keep the government from establishing a sanctioned religion, Podesta and Clinton sure seem like they want to recognize a changed religion. Am I wrong in seeing that their corruption and deceit know no limits.
In Canada, Europe and the United States we separate church and state. If you are a Catholic, you have the freedom of choice. If you really do not like the rules of the church, you do not have to belong or attend the services. You just leave.
If you are Muslim and you do not like their rules they behead you, burn you, drown you or throw you from the rooftops of buildings. Now is this not a nice progressive, open minded idea that Hillary and her gang of Hitlerized criminals want you to believe? You bet. Josef Stalin would agree.
Changing the church cannot be done from the outside. Most non-Catholics do not believe much of what the Catholic Church teaches as doctrine, but they support their right to believe as they do. They all give the same respect to any God-centered church.
It is none of their business what the Catholic Church teaches. One would think the Clintonites would have learned when the Supreme court came out and ruled in favor of the Little Sisters of the Poor vs Obama. Sandy Newman sounds like an arrogant misguided, misinformed Marxist.
Now do you know why HRC did not want those emails on a public server and why she did not want them released to the public? What else will we learn?
Is this a first step to control us? Is this part of the overall plan for the elite to enslave the unwashed, mindless serfs who cling to their guns and religion? Can you envision a Supreme Court packed with Clintonites like Palmieri, Podesta and Newman?
Be careful who you vote for! Our children will have to live it for a long, long time.
God Bless us all and God Save our America. Our Catholic Church, our Constitution, our culture, or country, our civilization, our currency and our children need you now more than ever.

Finally, an author who brings you solutions, instead of problems.
Americans have lost faith in their overreaching federal government. “We the People” don’t need to be overregulated or have their taxes misspent. Americans are victims of a crumbling economy, high prices and stagnant wages. They view government as bloated and politicians as corrupt.
They do not trust the leadership at any level. They see politicians of both parties as self-centered narcissists whose only objective is re-election. The author is like you, with one principal difference and 20 reasons for optimism. His “Vision” of America is “clear.” It is a vision of the Constitution and America the way it could be, the way it should be. The author’s eyesight is twenty-twenty.
