Skip to comments.Tim Kaine's Catholic Mutiny
Posted on 10/07/2016 9:42:43 AM PDT by Kaslin
Liberal Catholic candidates for public office such as Democratic nominee for vice president Tim Kaine often proclaim their Catholic identity to curry favor with this constituency, but when it comes to practicing the doctrines of their faith often are what are called cafeteria Catholics. They pick and chooses from what they might call the Ten Suggestions, particularly when it comes to a womans right to choose.
Unfortunately for Tim Kaine and fellow cafeteria devotees, there is no right to choose on what are called doctrines of the church, even if he seems to think so. On the issue of same-sex marriage, Kaine said in a recent speech to the 20th National Human Rights Campaign in Washington, D.C. that he thought the Catholic Church would soon follow his lead on this issue:
Democratic vice-presidential nominee Tim Kaine, a practicing Catholic, on Saturday described his evolution on same-sex marriage and predicted that his church would change its views as well.
My full, complete, unconditional support for marriage equality is at odds with the current doctrine of the church that I still attend, Kaine said at a dinner celebrating gay rights. But I think thats going to change, too.
Representatives of the Catholic Church responded by saying, er, we dont think so, suggesting this practicing Catholic needs a little more practice:

Kaine will prove with geometric logic that a second key to the strawberries had to exist.
Catholic or proponent of liberation theology? I think the second and he would be a powerful successor to Obama.
According to Tiny Timmy the Catholic Church will eventually embrace gay marriage, abortion, euthanasia, etc. Sure, right after it drops the Eucharist.
The GAY. All he cares about is GAY EVERYTHING!
I've never understood how the RCC hasn't kicked out people like Kaine. All the time on FR, Catholics post about how proud they are of the Church's refusal to allow divorced/remarried people to take communion, and how protestant denominations started downhill by allowing contraception; all the while these high-profile Catholic politicians are enabling and encouraging and funding abortion, gay marriage, transgenderism, etc. Does the Church deny communion to these people (Kennedys, Kaine, Kerry, et al)?
One wonders what other aspects of his morality would he not impose on others? Robbery? Rape? Fraud? Is there ANYTHING that he would “impose on others”? Of course, it goes without saying he has no problem imposing homosexuality on society. Total moral fraud.
The U.S. Episcopate is toothless and everyone knows it. Rest assured Kaine and his ilk will continue to be welcome at the communion rail no matter how contrary their positions and actions are to official Catholic doctrine.
A wolf in sheep’s clothing.
Catholic from the liberal mindset of liberation ‘theology” and social justice and it doesn’t matter what God, His Word or His Tradition says, they know better.
IOW’s they really belong to the church of self, they make the rules and try to change God’s word to fit their arrogant, narcissistic selves.
You cannot be a Catholic and a democrat at the same time!
It would be nice if the churches pointed that out.
That’s exactly right. In the U.S. today, the Catholic Church functions no differently than the “state churches” you find in communist countries.
A real Catholic Church would start by excommunicating every Catholic politician that supported abortion.
You cannot be a Christian and a Democrat at the same time!
Commandments 2, 6 and 9 in particular.
All the Communion rails have been removed
