Podesta Emails: 'Pope Is the Real Deal' on Climate - Despite His 'Middle Ages Dictatorship'

37 views

Despite leaked emails showing members of Hillary Clinton’s team expressing contempt for Catholics, Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta is apparently fond of Pope Francis because his “Jesuit friends” think the pope is “the real deal” on climate issues.

In an email exchange released by WikiLeaks, Podesta spoke to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio after de Blasio’s trip to Rome. Podesta took the opportunity to applaud Pope Francis because Podesta claims “all my Jesuit friends say the Pope is the real deal”:

I'm kind of tight. Could you do 2:00 or 2:30? If not, I'll get on your calendar for when I get back. John PS Great work on climate. Impressive event. As all my Jesuit friends say the Pope is the real deal. Are you going to go to LA for the US China cities climate meeting in the fall?

While de Blasio was Rome, he participated in a conference, sponsored by the Vatican, on how to fight climate change. Pope Francis has actively spoken out against climate change, even reportedly calling it a “sin.”

Although Podesta expressed he is fond of the pope because of the pope’s actions on climate change, other leaked emails show the Clinton chairman involved in email chains that call Catholicism “backwards” and urge a “Catholic spring” to move the religion away from a “Middle Ages dictatorship.”
