The Point: Senator Kaine and the Least of These

I’ll see your quote and raise you two. For the Colson Center, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point.

I’m surprised, to put it mildly, that Christianity Today would choose to run an opinion piece on health care by Virginia Senator and former Clinton running mate Tim Kaine.

In the article, entitled “We Need All Parts of the Body to Fix Health Care,” Kaine quotes Scripture at us twice, first 1 Corinthians 12, strangely redirecting Paul’s teaching about the church and applying it to Congress.

Even worse, Senator Kaine then cites Matthew 25, about “the least of these.” Well, perhaps Senator Kaine could expand his definition of “the least of these” to include the unborn? Kaine identifies as a Roman Catholic, but has a 100 percent Planned Parenthood voting record in the Senate—100 percent.

I can’t imagine CT would share their platform with someone so morally compromised on other issues. So why the exception for, of all things, abortion?

Look, Senator, here are two other Scripture passages: Matthew 19: “Let the little children come to me;” and Proverbs 6, “God hates hands that shed innocent blood.”

    I am Catholic and attended the Wilberforce Weekend this past May. I found that the evangelicals whom I met and listened to adhered more to the social tenets of Catholicism than many Catholics do.
    Kaine, Biden, Pelosi and Cuomo are all phonies. They speak of advocating for the downtrodden while taking the money of Planned Parenthood for their campaigns and funneling government money to Planned Parenthood. The Democrat party, which booed God at its 2012 convention, has become the party of death advocating for physician assisted suicide and abortion.

      Steve, please remember, the comment policy says no name-calling.

        Thanks for the reminder.
        I should have said the actions of Kaine, Biden, Pelosi and Cuomo are not genuine; fraudulent.
