Wendy Long Exposes Anti-Catholic Bigotry in Elite NYC Privatye School

Wikileaks has ripped the lid off the anti-Catholic bigotry that is not limited to Hillary Clinton and her political advisors.

On October 13, 2016, Wendy Long, the New York nominee for U.S. Senate of the Republican, Conservative, and Reform parties, shared a distressing personal story of bigotry at an elite New York City private school. Since she kept an email about it sent to her by mistake, I doubt she will be disputed.Wikileaks has ripped the lid off the anti-Catholic bigotry that is not limited to Hillary Clinton and her political advisors.

Apparently inspired by recently disclosed Clinton World email demonstrating hostility toward faithful Christians, Long stated:

"There are many reasons to be thankful for Wikileaks, and perhaps the most important yet is for pointing out the ignorant bigotry that today's purported elites have when it comes to traditional Catholicism and Christianity in general. As noted in emails between John Halpin and John Podesta, members of the Democrat political class have disdain for those who believe and follow Church teachings.

"Unfortunately, it is something I know too well from personal experience.

"When my son was in Seventh Grade at St. Bernard's School in Manhattan, I was shocked to see his human biology class 'text.' He and his classmates were forced [to] read aloud in class material that misrepresented Catholic teaching on human sexuality. Forcing students to read aloud material that denigrates their faith constitutes indoctrination.

"When I pointed out to the school that the text misrepresented Catholic teaching on human sexuality, the school, which counts the late Cardinal Avery Dulles among its alumni, resisted my attempts to even discuss and correct it. When I sent excerpts from the Catholic Catechism in an attempt to show why the text was wrong, I was mistakenly copied on an email (which I have retained) from a senior member of the school stating that, in light of my persisting, he would tell our family that it was time to find a new school. This at an institution that purports not to discriminate on the basis of religion.

"The cultural elite in this country -- the Democrat Party, big media, big corporations, and our schools, from nursery school through universities -- is on a mission to wipe traditional religion from America, which the Founders acknowledged was established on God's natural law.

"Wikileaks has ripped the lid off the anti-Catholic bigotry that is not limited to Hillary Clinton and her political advisors. Unfortunately, bigotry towards traditional Jews and Christians is the last socially acceptable form of bigotry among the elites of the Acela corridor."

The Acela corridor runs between Washington, D,C, and Boston and includes Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York City.
