Clinton accused of favoring ‘extremist’ policies that would ‘punish’ Catholics 

An article by Hillary Clinton in a local Utah newspaper in which she promotes herself as a defender of religious freedom has provoked criticism from Catholics and senior academics in the US.

Thomas Farr, director of the Religious Freedom Project at the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs told CNS: “Anyone who believes that a President Hillary Clinton will support the religious freedom of Catholic elementary and high schools, colleges, refugee services, adoption agencies, homes for the aged poor, or any other private organization, is making a mistake…Her own words suggest that even churches will not evade her understanding of the kind of ‘compelling government interest’ that she considers abortion and same-sex marriage to be.”

Meanwhile, Brian Burch, president of CatholicVote.org, claimed that Clinton “favours extremist policies that would punish charities like the Little Sisters of the Poor along with thousands of similar Catholic-inspired charities.”
