Kaine is a 'Faithful' Catholic, but Opposes Some Church Edicts

from Catholic Vote:
Tomorrow the vice presidential candidates will debate. Here's a wire story about the faith of pro-abortion Democrat Tim Kaine, featuring an interview from CatholicVote's Brian Burch

WASHINGTON — Tim Kaine personally opposes the death penalty, the moral stand of a staunch Roman Catholic who regularly attends Mass and whose church believes executions to be wrong.

Yet as governor of Virginia, the Democratic vice presidential nominee allowed the execution of 11 men.

The death penalty is part of a political tightrope Kaine has walked for almost two decades, trying to balance his Catholic faith with policy positions that are at odds with the church's teachings. He also personally opposes abortion, for example, but supports the right of women to choose to have one.

That intersection, or collision, between faith and politics could be a significant part of Tuesday's vice presidential debate between Kaine and Republican Mike Pence, a devout evangelical Christian and former Catholic whose faith also has defined major points of his career.

And as Kaine's record shows, some of those collisions could make for tricky politics in the debate.

The biggest flashpoint is abortion.

Like many religious Democrats, Kaine acknowledges his personal opposition but says the state should not restrict a woman's right to choose.

That's not enough for some Catholics.

Bloggers Note: As a practicing Catholic, I am getting sick and tired of politicians who profess to be 'devout' Catholics or Christians, but embrace policies which go against Church teachings.

Tim Kaine is an embarrassment to Catholics. He may state he is a Catholic, but his actions show he truly is not following Christ's teachings.  He and others like him are simply apostates!
