The Democrat Party’s pick for vice president, Tim Kaine, says he believes the Roman Catholic Church may change its opposition to gay marriage. He is a devout Roman Catholic, and he told the attendees at a Human Rights Campaign national dinner Saturday in Washington that he had changed his mind about gay marriage and that his church may follow suit one day.
Tim Kaine said, “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.’’’ Kaine also mentioned Pope Francis’ remark, “Who am I to judge?” – in reference to gay priests. In addressing the attendees, Tim Kaine pledged to fight for increased rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) Americans – although he admitted that he had opposed gay marriage until 2005. Before introducing Kaine, Human Rights Campaign President Chad Griffin called Donald Trump the “gravest threat” the LGBTQ community has faced in a presidential election.
Obviously Tim Kaine hasn’t read the sixth chapter of Genesis: “(Verse 5) Then the Lord saw how great man’s wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time. The Lord was grieved that he had made man on the earth, and his heart was filled with pain. So the Lord said, ‘I will wipe mankind, whom I have created, from the face of the earth – men and animals, and creatures that move along the ground, and birds of the air – for I am grieved that I have made them.’ But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.”
And sure enough, God wiped them all out with the Great Flood. How much longer God will put up with our wickedness – especially when it is coming from our nation’s leaders?
