Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez revealed the extent of the hostility of Democrats to the church in a speech where he criticized that Americans were listening too intently to what they were hearing from "the pulpit."
"We all have to make sure that we're fluent in what's happening across our ecosystem," Perez said. "So that we can come to each other's defense."
"Because we need to build a bigger orchestra," he explained.
Perez was speaking in Washington D.C. on Wednesday to the far left group "Demand Justice," when he made the comments.
"They've had a big orchestra for some time," he continued. "And they've got the megaphones to amplify it - whether it's Sinclair at the local level, Fox at the national level. I've learned this from the outreach because the DNC - 'why aren't we penetrating?' I ask."
"That person on the pulpit is saying ignore everything"
"And I had someone in northwestern Wisconsin tell me, 'you know what? For most of the people I know, their principle sources of information are Fox News, their NRA newsletter, and the pulpit on Sunday," he explained.
"And this should come as a surprise to no one," Perez said, "that our message doesn't penetrate."
"This should come as a surprise to no one," he added, "that that person has elevated the issue, of course, to the top because that person on the pulpit is saying ignore everything else that this person has done and is doing, we have to focus on one issue of Roe vs. Wade."
"And people buy it!" he complained. "Because that's their only source!"
