Once upon a time, a country was founded. And one of the rights enshrined in its constitution was freedom of religion. The country’s founders didn’t want people having to worry about the government oppressing people for practicing their faith. Then 200 years passed, liberals came along, and religious freedom has come under attack.
Tim Kaine, Hillary Clinton’s running mate, calls himself a Catholic. But the man supports abortion — even late-term abortion — as well as gay marriage, and it’s clear that his allegiance is to liberalism, and not the Catholic Church. He has even gone so far as to make a direct threat to the Church if they don’t fall in line with his liberal agenda.
Kaine was speaking at the 20th Annual Human Rights Campaign’s National Dinner, when he insisted that the Catholic Church would — like he did — change its stance on same-sex 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.
He continued, saying, “We are talking here about a country that was based and founded on democracy as a core value. By definition, that means that every single person and every single citizen is able – no, scratch that – encouraged to practice his civil, religious, and above all, sexual liberties to the best of their abilities. And I’m sorry that some people don’t like it, but to deny same-sex marriage in a country that should be the first one to accept it is just pointless. And the Catholic Church should also be accepting it instead of condemning it, which is what it’s doing right now.”
And what happens if the Catholic Church doesn’t bow to liberalism? Well, Kaine explains, they will be forced to see reason. “At the end of the day, you know, we’re a civilized people, of course the first thing we’ll do is act nicely and ask nicely,” he said. “Then, if that doesn’t work, we’ll use our law and our legal system to enable ourselves to be who we are, or rather the LBGT community will do that – and it has. The Supreme Court’s ruling on same-sex marriage was a crucial milestone in our legal system that proves it works, it actually functions.” So Kaine is threatening to use the government to force the Church to abandon its doctrine.
“So, what I’m saying here,” he continued, “is that, while I respect the Catholic Church as I’m sure millions of Americans do, you know, at some point it is going to start acting contrary to the Christian faith, and we’re talking about an institution that’s supposed to be the first one on the front line defending it. So, when that happens, and that’s what’s happening with condemning LGBT rights, we’ll state an ultimatum. The United States of America, more precisely, the future President of the United States of America, Hillary Clinton, will state an ultimatum. And that ultimatum will be to either change its stance on same-sex marriage or pack its bags and get out of America. And yes – the President of the country can do that.”
That should send chills down the spine of every single American, regardless of whether or not they are Catholic.
