Hillary Tells Catholic Audience How To Achieve Salvation

In a very uncharacteristic acknowledgement of her own faith, Hillary Clinton tried her best to appeal to a Catholic audience that may have well been set against her. After the recent round of Wiki Leaks came out showing her team's disdain for Catholic voters and even a plot to try to fracture the Catholic Church through fake groups that would water down teachings on marriage and the right to life, Clinton had her work cut out for her.

Shockingly though, at the the 71st annual Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner for Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York, it seemed the audience was more favorable to Clinton than to Trump. Both candidates were there (and just the night after their very tense last debate), and gave what is supposed to be a light roast to the other. Trump's speech got far more boo's than Hillary, and many even applauded her. It seemed baffling after the recent press of her disaffection for Catholics.

But what was most eyebrow-raising were her remarks about her faith, as reported by Life Site News. “Now I’m not Catholic, I’m a Methodist,” Clinton said, “but one of the things that we share is the belief that in order to achieve salvation we need both faith and good works.”

“And you certainly don’t need to be Catholic to be inspired by the humility and the heart of the Holy Father Pope Francis, or to embrace his message,” she continued to a favorable audience. “His message about rejecting a mindset of hostility, his calls to reduce inequality, his warnings about climate change.”

This comes at great irony, as just the night before, Clinton fervently said she would support partial-birth abortion, as well as gay marriage. This flies in the face of traditional Catholic values, so the audience's reception of Clinton is quite baffling. Clinton went on to engender herself to them through her running mate. “Tim is Catholic and went to Jesuit schools."

“Well, we need to get better at finding ways to disagree on matters of policy, while agreeing on questions of decency and civility," Clinton encouraged the crowd. The matters of policy (that are at the very crux of the faith, like marriage and life) seemed to be fairly unimportant to the crowd enamored with Clinton.

What do you think of her remarks and the crowds' positive reception? Let us hear your thoughts in the Comments! Thank you!
