The Reverend Samuel Rodriguez had stated that Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton wants Hispanic Christians to go against their own religious beliefs in supporting her.
In a statement emailed to supporters on Monday morning, the president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference said that Clinton wants Christians "'to Sacrifice Our Most Cherished Values."
"Latinos are pro-life. Latinos, whether they be Evangelical or Catholic, must never sacrifice truth on the altar of political expediency," stated Rodriguez.
"By asking for our support, Sec. Clinton is asking us to sacrifice our most cherished values. She is asking us to defy our faith. She is asking us to sacrifice the sacred."
Rodriguez went on to contrast Clinton's positions on abortion with Republican Party nominee Donald Trump's campaign promise to build a wall on America's border with Mexico.
