Tim Kaine Does Not Speak For the Catholic Church

…Or for any Christian, to be perfectly frank.

Yesterday, our Mr. Streiff reported on Democrat VP pick, Tim Kaine, pandering to the LGBT community with his speech on Saturday to the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s top advocacy group for LGBT activism.

Stupidly, Kaine announced, in regards to the Catholic church’s stance on gay marriage:

“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’,” he said.

Because God declared the works of His hands “good” does not mean that everything He said after is negated. I’m not sure where Kaine is getting that, other than to say that, like most liberals, he has no idea what he’s talking about, where faith and Christianity are involved, and he’s simply filling up the air with empty words, in order to make his target group feel more obliged to him and his campaign.

The bishop of the Richmond, VA diocese, which would make him Kaine’s bishop, has issued an answer to Kaine’s attempts to twist Scripture to fit a Democrat agenda, rather than God’s agenda.

In a statement provided to Secrets, Bishop Francis X. DiLorenzo said,“Marriage is the only institution uniting one man and one woman with each other and with any child who comes from their union. Redefining marriage furthers no one’s rights.”

“More than a year after the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on marriage, and despite recent statements from the campaign trail, the Catholic Church’s 2,000-year-old teaching to the truth about what constitutes marriage remains unchanged and resolute,” he said.

“As Catholics, we believe, all humans warrant dignity and deserve love and respect, and unjust discrimination is always wrong. Our understanding of marriage, however, is a matter or justice and fidelity to our Creator’s original design,” he added.

He concluded, “We call on Catholics and all those concerned for preserving this sacred union to unite in prayer, to live and speak out with compassion and charity about the true nature of marriage — the heart of family life.”

Those aren’t exactly words that align with Kaine’s assertions, but they’re words that align with Biblical truth.

Perhaps Tim Kaine will take the bishop’s words to heart, and at the very least, stop talking matters of faith and doctrine, altogether, considering he has such a tenuous grasp on the concept.
