Tim Kaine Should Be Excommunicated
Monday, October 31, 2016
At the Human Rights Campaign's national dinner, Democrat vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine thumbed his nose at the Catholic Church, of which he claims to be a devoted member.
Not only did Kaine offer a full-throated endorsement of same-sex marriage (something he vigorously opposed before it became politically expedient to do otherwise), but he openly chastised the Catholic Church for not condoning the new (im)morality.
Don't believe me? Read on...
“I think it’s going to change because my church also teaches me about a creator who, in the first chapter of Genesis, surveyed the entire world, including mankind, and said, ‘It is very good,’” said Kaine at the September 10th dinner, which he keynoted.
“I want to add: Who am I to challenge God for the beautiful diversity of the human family?” he continued. “I think we’re supposed to celebrate it, not challenge it.”
What Kaine, the self-avowed biblical authority, failed to note is that Genesis 1:27 makes it abundantly clear that God created males and females to be separate and distinct. In Genesis 2:18, God said that it is not good for a man to be alone, and so He created a woman to be his companion. And in Genesis 2:24, God instructed Adam and Eve to cleave to each other... commanding them in Genesis 1:28 to "be fruitful and multiply".
And then there is that troublesome (at least for Tim Kaine) passage in Romans 1, where God refers to same-sex relations as "shameful" and "vile passions".
Can you say Sodom and Gomorrah, Mr. Senator?
So much for Kaine's selective recitation of scripture and his self-serving - and heretical - interpretation of those same passages.
But Kaine didn't just stop with misapplying God's Holy Word. The senator from Virginia - yes, the same state that honored us with four of our first five presidents - went on to denounce (and misquote) Donald Trump for lauding Vladimir Putin's "strong leadership", adding that Putin "persecutes LGBTQ Russians".
Yes, Sen. Kaine, and Saudi Arabia and other Muslim countries that financially support the Clinton Foundation put homosexuals to death. Note the hypocrisy... and the dollar signs?
And don't get me started on Kaine's vocal support of abortion-on-demand, another position that is completely at odds with Catholic teaching. His cowardly "I'm personally opposed to the practice, but who am I to impose my morality on others" stance makes him the modern-day poster boy for political expediency and lack of true conviction.
God help us if the Clinton-Kaine ticket wins on November 8th... and may we do everything in our power now to make sure that doesn't happen.
