Catholic VP candidate Kaine defends Hillary’s anti-Catholic rhetoric


screen-shot-2016-10-17-at-1-09-38-pmAfter 2 Dodges, Catholic Kaine Defends Anti-Catholic Emails From Campaign

He claims to be a strong Catholic.  He is not. First he claims that the emails are not accurate and may have been somehow “doctored.”  After this is slapped down, he goes for the whole “well I’m Catholic and she likes me, so…” and that falls flat as well.  He says no one should have to apologize for their opinions, which is also something that his party and he himself have never adhered to.  Really, Tim?

severely backwards gender relations she

0:17
most socially acceptable political
0:20
conservative religion many took offense
0:22
to the perceived mockery of Catholicism
0:24

0:29
well Martha let me first say this and
0:32
this is really important thing I don’t
0:35
give credence to any of these dumped
0:37
documents because I don’t even know if
0:40
they’re accurate and they are part of an
0:42
effort by the Russians and WikiLeaks I
0:44
just want to say it was right there
0:46

0:53
topic that everybody needs to know about
0:54
these emails one email has come up with
0:57
my name in it and it’s completely
0:59
inaccurate now was it inaccurate because
1:01

1:21
what Hillary Clinton who is running for
1:23
president thinks about Catholics and the
1:26
and the value more broadly of having a
1:29
faith background i can tell you she

country and even about being Catholic we
1:49
have plenty of opinions so you don’t
1:52
need to apologize for an opinion but in
1:54
terms of respect for the church and
1:57
people’s faith lies Hillary Clinton has
1:59
that respect because it’s what motivates
