Hillary Clinton Is Satanic And Democratic Voters Are Going To Hell, San Diego Catholic Church Warns

Lorenzo Tanos

Suggestions that Hillary Clinton may be Satanic may sound strange, and the Democratic presidential nominee has indeed had her fair share of critics and similarly odd claims made against her. Now, these critics and detractors include a San Diego Catholic church, which reportedly issued church literature last month suggesting eternal damnation for anyone who votes Democrat in the 2016 U.S. presidential elections.

According to the Huffington Post, the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in San Diego's Old Town released a flyer called "Voters Guide for Serious Catholics" on October 16. The flyer was written in English and Spanish and was conveniently inserted into the church's weekly bulletin. And it didn't take too long to get to its point – anyone who votes Democrat in the elections is literally going to hell.

"It is a mortal sin to vote Democrat … Immediately after death the souls of those who die in a state of mortal sin descend into hell."

According to the Washington Post, the second bulletin described Alinsky as a "tool of Satan," though this is nothing new for Clinton's GOP detractors. Most recently, Ben Carson spoke at the Republican National Convention, referencing how Clinton, while a student at Wellesley, wrote her senior thesis on Alinsky, whom she had particularly admired as a young woman. A previous Post report from July quoted Carson as also having referenced Alinsky's book Rules for Radicals, which acknowledged "original radical" Lucifer on the dedication page.

A report from the San Diego Union-Tribune further quoted the San Diego Catholic church bulletin, citing key points where it suggested Hillary Clinton's purported links to Satanism.

"The devil does this through tactics outlined by Saul Alinsky with the outcome as Hillary Clinton stated 'And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed,' to draw us away from God's teachings regarding the sanctity of life to those of the world and its prince."

Speaking to the New York Daily News, Immaculate Conception pastor Richard Perozich said that he did warn churchgoers that they will go to hell if they vote for or support Democratic candidates. He also admitted to writing the second bulletin but stressed that the language wasn't expressly instructing churchgoers to vote for or against Hillary Clinton. Regarding her alleged Satanic ties, Perozich had no comment on the matter.

"The fact that somebody took this and then made it public took it out of context. I would never tell anyone to 'vote this' or 'vote that.'"

Meanwhile, Roman Catholic Diocese of San Diego spokesman Kevin Eckery said in a statement that the first flyer, in particular, was not approved by Perozich, and that he also disagrees with the newer bulletin that tied Hillary Clinton in with Satanism.

"It's not a mortal sin to vote for Democrats, number one," said Eckery. "And number two, the church doesn't take positions on this, and we're not going to."
