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?
