Tim Kaine is Either a Heretic or a Saboteur
In a recent article that appeared in the progressive magazine The New Yorker, Tim Kaine was described as a “devout Roman Catholic,” which should prompt all Christians, not just Catholics, to contemplate whether a person who favors abortion on demand and same-sex marriage can be Catholic. The reality for Kaine is that his commitment to “reproductive rights” (euphemism for abortion) and same-sex marriage either make him a heretic or a saboteur.
Kaine is a co-sponsor of the Women’s Health Protection Act that has nothing to do with health; it has everything to do with death. The act is designed to remove with one fell swoop every restriction on abortion. Did Kaine’s faith inspire him to sponsor legislation to abolish all restrictions on abortion? Kaine seems to be practicing a new Catholicism that ignores God and His Church’s teachings on murder. Bishop Thomas Tobin of the Diocese of Providence has commented on Kaine’s mysterious Catholicism.
VP Pick, Tim Kaine, a Catholic?
Democratic VP choice, Tim Kaine, has been widely identified as a Roman Catholic. It is also reported that he publicly supports “freedom of choice” for abortion, same-sex marriage, gay adoptions, and the ordination of women as priests. All of these positions are clearly contrary to well-established Catholic teachings; all of them have been opposed by Pope Francis as well.
Senator Kaine has said, “My faith is central to everything I do.” But apparently, and unfortunately, his faith isn’t central to his public, political life.
Tim Kaine’s beliefs are antithetical to God and the Church, so is he a heretic?
Saint Thomas Aquinas (II-II:11:1) defines heresy as “a species of infidelity in men who, having professed the faith of Christ, corrupt its dogmas.” Aquinas further explains that “the right Christian faith consists in giving one’s voluntary assent to Christ in all that truly belongs to His teaching. There are, therefore, two ways of deviating from Christianity: the one by refusing to believe in Christ Himself, which is the way of infidelity, common to Pagans; the other by restricting belief to certain points of Christ’s doctrine selected and fashioned at pleasure, which is the way of heretics.” Is Kaine a heretic? If not, he is a saboteur.
Kaine is a progressive who has sworn his allegiance to the Democrat Party; the Democrat Party is anti-Catholic. We know from the e-mails leaked by Wikileaks that political operatives who work for the Clinton/Kaine campaign despise the Catholic Church and have referred to the Church as “severely backward.” One operative, John Podesta, in one of the e-mails, admits that he and others “created” the liberal groups Catholics United and Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good to undermine Catholic teaching to debase, degrade and ultimately destroy the Church. Kaine is aligned with Podesta and the other progressive saboteurs who manage his campaign, so what are we to make of Kaine; saboteur?
Kaine is a dangerous man because he presents himself as a Catholic, but rejects the teachings of the Church. Tim Kaine is either a heretic or a saboteur.
