Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York told KRDO-TV that if the Clinton campaign emails revealed by WikiLeaks had been about Islam or Judaism, the Clinton organization would have apologized for them. "If it had been said about the Jewish community, if it had been said about the Islamic community, within 10 minutes there would have been an apology and a complete distancing from those remarks - hasn't happened yet,” Dolan said in an interview with KRDO-TV.
 
Objectionable emails uncovered by the WikiLeaks hacks showed that executives of the Clinton campaign and the Center for American Progress (CAP) disparaged Catholics and their beliefs as “severely backwards” and called for a “Catholic Spring" in which Catholics themselves would overthrow the hierarchy of the Church as a "middle ages dictatorship.”
 
Last year, Hillary Clinton called for believers to actually change the tenets of their faith. “Far too many women are still denied critical access to reproductive health care and safe childbirth. All the laws we’ve passed don’t count for much if they’re not enforced,” Clinton said, using a euphemism for abortion. “Rights have to exist in practice — not just on paper,” Clinton argued. “Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will. And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.”
