On this Feast of the Immaculate Conception, I have compiled some quotations, which tell us precisely why we will not see many liberals and Modernists celebrating with any amount of enthusiasm today. For, as these quotes explain, this Dogma implicitly destroys the foundations on which their ideology rests. In addition to being a jewel in the crown of Our Lady, this dogma, above all other Marian dogmas, is one of the primary instruments she uses to crush the head of the serpent…Chris Jackson
Seamless garment Catholic
The idea of ideological consistency is not a popular one in America, especially during this election. But Kaine holds to a Catholic teaching often called “seamless garment,” or consistent ethic of life. How does this belief present in current American political debates? It means Kaine personally opposes abortion, the death penalty, and all threats to human life. His government service, however, has been another thing. As governor, he oversaw several executions and is a strong supporter of Roe v. Wade. “I’ve taken a position which is quite common among Catholics,” he said on Meet the Press recently. “I’ve got a personal feeling about abortion, but the right role for government is to let women make their own decisions.”
Evolving on LGBT Rights
Another point of contention for the left wing of the Democratic Party has been Kaine’s evolution on same-sex marriage and gay rights. Like Pope Francis, he’s evolved on the issue in the past few years. He fully embraced marriage equality in March 2013, but previously faced many questions about his position during campaigns. And again in the Pope Francis mold, Kaine has stressed anti-discrimination and civil rights over arguments about religious ethics. During his 2012 campaign for the Senate, he championed the idea that “relationship equality is a civil right.”
This is the most critical presidential election in the history of the United States. Hillary Clinton, a corrupt, radical pro-abortion, anti-Christian, career politician threatens to change the face of America forever. If elected, she will name three to four Supreme Court justices, cementing Roe v. Wade into the Constitution and losing the court for generations, if not forever. Hillary Clinton opposes home schooling and believes it is the government’s right to educate children and not the parents. She will restrict religious speech and persecute Christians who refuse to support her radical social agenda. She will promote illegal immigration and allow millions of unvettted illegal immigrants into our country. The illegal population will vote democrat far into the future so that no candidate with anything approximating Catholic positions will have a viable chance to be elected president. So despite obvious disagreements with him, I believe Catholics have the moral right to vote for the only viable alternative to Hillary Clinton in this election: Donald Trump.
