Hillary Clinton Selects Homosexual ‘Rights,’ Abortion ‘Rights’ Catholic Tim Kaine as Running Mate

Kaine-compressedDemocratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has announced that she has selected former Virginia governor Tim Kaine as her running mate, a man who identifies as Catholic, but believes homosexuals should have freedom to “marry” and mothers should have the “right” to choose an abortion despite his personal beliefs on the issues.

Clinton unveiled her decision on social media on Friday, Tweeting, “I’m thrilled to announce my running mate, @TimKaine, a man who’s devoted his life to fighting for others.”

She introduced Kaine during a campaign rally the following day at Florida International University.

“He is qualified to step into this job and lead on day one,” Clinton stated before a crowd of approximately 5,000. “When I say he’s a progressive who likes to get things done, I mean it.”

Kaine, who currently serves as a senator in the state, spoke to those gathered in a mix of English and Spanish.

“We’re going to be compañeros de alma (soul mates) in this great lucha (fight) ahead,” he declared.

While Kaine, a Roman Catholic, has outlined that he personally opposes abortion, he believes that women should have the choice as to whether or not to end the life of their unborn child.

“I have taken the position, which is quite common among Catholics—I have got a personal feeling about abortion, but the right rule for government is to let women make their own decisions,” he told NBC’s Chuck Todd last month.

“I strongly support the right of women to make their own health and reproductive decisions and, for that reason, will oppose efforts to weaken or subvert the basic holding of Roe v. Wade,” he also wrote on his campaign website in 2012. “We all share the goal of reducing unwanted pregnancies and abortions. The right way to do this is through education and access to health care and contraception rather than criminalizing women’s reproductive decisions.”

Similarly, while Kaine has personal opinions about same-sex “marriage,” he has come out in favor of its allowance in recent years.

“I believe all people, regardless of sexual orientation, should be guaranteed the full rights to the legal benefits and responsibilities of marriage under the Constitution,” Kaine said in a statement in 2013. “I hope the Supreme Court will affirm that principle.”

Clinton characterized Kaine as being both a person of faith and a progressive on Saturday as they hit the campaign trail together for the first time.

“In both of our families, faith wasn’t just something we talked about at church on Sundays,” she said. “It was a call to serve others in every way that we can.”

Kaine was enrolled in a Jesuit high school as a youth and currently attends St. Elizabeth Catholic Church in Richmond.

Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckbee told Fox News following the announcement of Kaine’s selection that he believes Kaine’s “faith is real” although he is perplexed by how Kaine votes opposite of his personal convictions.

“Let’s be clear, Tim Kaine is definitely a liberal. And even though he says he’s personally against abortion, he still always governs with a pro-abortion vote,” he said. “I don’t know what that’s supposed to mean—I’m personally against it, but I’m going to go ahead and do it anyway.”

    By “others,” she means Big Abortion and their abortionists.

    The preborn babies they kill, not so much.

    “currently attends St. Elizabeth Catholic Church in Richmond”

    The Catholic Church is 100% clear on the Sanctity of Life and the Sanctity of Marriage, and that violations of same are cause for withholding Communion.

    If the priest at St. Elizabeth’s is delivering Communion to this man, he is also complicit, and has ex-communicated himself from the Catholic Church.

    He is no Catholic. Although many Catholics do not have the wholesome Biblical truth, people should not claim to be Catholic if they are not obeying even the human Pope. Pope never endorsed infanticide or Sodomy( not yet). If the present Pope endorses Sodomy, it means he nullifies not only the entire Holy Bible but also the teachings and stance of all of the historic Popes. The Westerners got to stop disgracing all of their Christian forefathers and ancestors. Enough of warped amusement of the rich pervs in the West. It’s been only 70 years since the end of WW2. Religions last thousands of years, but Sodom and Gomorrah lasted only a few decades after it got bad. The West must cherish its own children instead of warped sick adults to get a life.

    • Oboehner

      “Pope never endorsed… …Sodomy” You must have missed a few things ‘ol popey has said.

      • Grace Kim Kwon

        He didn’t, although secular West and its mental slaves want him to.

        • Oboehner

          Pope Francis said that Christians owe apologies to gays and others who have been offended.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            It is not his endorsement of Sodomy. Pope is a human and he has no idea how much the Sodomites are bullying the Christians in the current secular West. Secularists should apologize to God for blaspheming and all other sins and apologize to the world for pushing the murderous population control and Sodomy, for destroying mankind’s morality, polluting the youth and the planet, and bringing down God’s wrath.

          • Oboehner

            Sounds like the same things the pope should apologize for, he can start with idolatry.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Apology actually means not a thing in this world. Racist West has turned into Sodomic West in a mere few decades and is now trying to enslave mankind again, this time with abnormal sexual filth instead of cotton picking. Racists were better to deal with because every Earthling is racist in one’s own region anyway, but not everyone is like a nudist Western perv who hurt children. The crisis is in a new level. Immorality hurts everyone in the society – especially every child. There is no hope of human rights and liberty for anyone apart from the Holy Bible. Yes, Pope and all mankind need the Word of God for salvation and the truth and decency. I think mindless apologies made secular nations cowardly and feminized. Men can be properly manly only with the Word of God.

          • Oboehner

            “the nudist Western pervs who deliberately hurt children’s innocence and morality” Are you talking about the priests?

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Most Catholic priests are innocent. I mean the secular Westerners and their mimickers who support abortion and Sodomy and oppose morality.

          • Oboehner

            Most Catholic priests are innocent? A great number are guilty, and the RCC policy is to cover up and relocate – that’s opposing morality.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            You are talking about the dedicated leaders of over 1 billion humans. Catholic priests are cleaner than school teachers and bankers and politicians or any men in the streets. Mankind was educated that child-abuse is a crime by the Church. Barbaric raw mankind did not know child-abuse was wrong. You Westerners really must stop attacking the Christianity your only sane conscience. You have nothing good if Christianity is taken away from you’ apart from Christianity, just the woeful global sexual immorality is all you get.

          • Oboehner

            “Catholic priests are cleaner than…” hookers, crackheads, yadda yadda.
            Comparison doesn’t cut it especially when higher ups are covering up and doing nothing to stop it. Catholicism is merely paganism with Christian sounding names slapped on, I especially like how they buried the “no graven images” commandment. The whole “Mankind was given literacy and educated that child-abuse is a crime by the Church” shtick is a load, the RCC desperately tried to keep the Bible away from the people, even killing to keep it that way.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            You are wrong. You have no idea on the Catholics’ contribution in the world. It’s true they carry a lot of extra-Biblical errors and some of them are practically pagan rather than Christian, but they did massive good to mankind everywhere. Some preached the Gospel of Jesus Christ. That’s why people converted to Catholicism. The Catholics are better than today’s Western mainline cults who support infanticide and Sodomy. This is an era where men love deadly falsehood. You must stop hating the Catholics, look after your own soul, repent of your sin, and ask Jesus to save you. Read the Holy Bible and go to a Christ-centered Bible-believing church to hear God’s Word.

          • Oboehner

            …some butchered entire groups of people, preached false religion sending countless people down the wrong path,…

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Wars for survival take similar forms everywhere around the world. Catholic Church brought medicine and education and civility everywhere. Today’s West is self-destructive because secularists slander their ancestors who had better morality than they.

          • Oboehner

            Wars for domination are a completely different animal, that’s what wiped out entire groups of people, women children and all. Burning people alive is not “better morality”.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            They died off by diseases and also intermarried and merged with the European population. People burn each other all the time everywhere, not just the Spanish. The Catholic Church brought the news of Jesus Christ, literacy, and charity wherever possible. It was time for the savage mankind to stop serving the demons.

          • Ken Faivor

            Maybe she is talking about the nudist Germans that are all teary eyed because the museums of all people, called them out on their immoral behavior.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Secular Westerners and their mental slaves should stop nudism in public places; it’s such insanity and it hurts children. Thank God that Nazi Germans did not single out the unborn children in wombs for massacre. Each era and every region has its own unique evil. It is getting worse each year towards the End; the Church must preach the Gospel and teach truth to everyone till the end. Repent of your own sin. Read the Holy Bible to be saved and become humane and civilized. The Westerners have no morality apart from Christianity.

          • Ken Faivor

            I agree, Grace.

    • DorianGrayfox

      Lest you bible thumpers forget. The Southern Baptist Church only apologized for its full support of SLAVERY, SEGREGATION, and active support of JIM CROW LAWS very very recently, in 1995!!!!!! Conservative American “christians” had NO problem using the bible to support slavery and support laws against interracial marriage. Funny how the religious always use the book to support their own bigotry until the social mood changes.

      “WHEREAS, Racism profoundly distorts our understanding of Christian morality, leading Southern Baptists to believe that racial prejudice and discrimination are compatible with the Gospel…”

      • Grace Kim Kwon

        Non-baptists’ demon-worships and barbarisms were far more evil. Only the Southern Baptists are sorry for any of the civilization’s sins. Secular Westerners are not sorry for their heinous crimes and that’s why today’s Western culture attemps to enslave mankind with sexual depravity. Cotton picking was a noble labour comparing to today’s sex slavery. Yesteryears’ racisist Westerners have a better quality as human than today’s Sodomic perv Westerners. You need to repent of your sin to get a life. (John ch.3)

        • DorianGrayfox

          Demon worshipers? LOL. Ms. Kim Kwon, didn’t your ancestors worship flying monkeys and horned snakes? What missionary man screwed your great grandmother and ” saved” her ” soul” so that you can now spew hate against gay people? Homophobic BIGOT, American isn’t a “christian” nation, nor was it EVER. THAT my dear, is why there is NO mention whatsoever of ” god” in our constitution. You may want to read that as opposed to your 2000 year old books of myths!

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            America is a mere Sodom to get utterly destroyed if the nation has no Christians in it. Secular Westerners have the deadliest cultural defects because they’ve been spoiled by the gentle Christians for the longest time and are utterly ungrateful to Christianity their only sane conscience and goodness. Gays need calls for repentance and the Gospel of Jesus Christ so that they can get saved, not the sick, destructive endorsement. Today’s unbelieving Americans are bullying the Christians because USA lost virtues by losing Christianity. You need Christianity for salvation and morality. If no repentance, USA will be gone like other evil empires, but the Holy Bible is forever. Read Isaiah ch.40.

    “Hillary Clinton Selects Homosexual ‘Rights,’ Abortion ‘Rights’ Catholic Tim Kaine as Running Mate”
    If this is true, then he isn’t a real catholic except for in name only. I was in the catholic church for over 20 years and these 2 things are not accepted. You can’t be engaging in homosexual sex or support abortions.
    Killary is such a loser on many levels. She doesn’t deserve to be President. She can’t even manage something as simple as emails.

    • Oboehner

      They would be fine and dandy if the pope said so.

  • Kyler Phoenix

    How dare a decent, rational person support freedom and decency right?

  • Chet

    So then to say one believes on one hand and yet promote functions or entities and acts in direct contrast to the Holy Bible on the other, what gives? Such person believes all right, believes what? Such one, by his fruits, declares that he and his politics are paramount in his life. Tim selectively uses his spiritural scissors to excise the marriage definition as God Almighty decreed it and has simply dismissed the Lord Jesus’ love for little children. In addition to his total ignoring of the Sixth Commandment. Such is the trademark of Democrat politicos everywhere…
