Clinton’s Catholic VP pick Tim Kaine trained by Jesuits and is member of the Jesuit volunteer corps
Devout Catholic background and Jesuit upbringing:
Kaine was raised Catholic in Missouri. His parents were so devout, Kaine told C-SPAN, that “if we got back from a vacation on a Sunday night at 7:30 p.m., they would know the one church in Kansas City that had an 8 p.m. Mass that we can make.” He attended an all-boys Jesuit high school in Kansas City and worked for a year with Jesuit missionaries in Honduras
Kaine and his wife have been congregants of the St. Elizabeth Catholic Church in Richmond, a mostly black congregation, for 30 years.
Member of Jesuit volunteer corps:
A native of Kansas City, he took time off while studying law at Harvard to join the Jesuit Volunteer Corps, working in Honduras.
Met personally with a Jesuit priest in 2014 to push Jesuit communism in Honduras:
In November 2014, Senator Kaine met with Fr. Ismael “Melo” Moreno Coto, S.J., a Honduran-based Jesuit…
He has supported expanded background checks for weapons purchases as well as “restrictions on the sale of combat-style weapons and high-capacity magazine.”
Kaine has a 100% rating from the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and an “F” rating from the NRA.
“I have a traditional Catholic personal position, but I am very strongly supportive that women should make these decisions and government shouldn’t intrude. I’m a strong supporter of Roe v. Wade and women being able to make these decisions.”
As a Senator, he has received perfect scores from Planned Parenthood and the abortion-rights advocacy group NARAL. He has received a score of zero from the anti-abortion National Right to Life Committee.
Pro-homosexual marriage and LGBT agenda:
In 2006, Kaine campaigned against an amendment to the Virginia State Constitution to bar same-sex marriage, and in March 2013, Kaine announced his support of same-sex marriage, saying “I believe all people, regardless of sexual orientation, should be guaranteed the full rights to the legal benefits and responsibilities of marriage under the Constitution.”
Pro-illegal immigration invasion:
Kaine supports President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (DAPA) programs, which would allow up to five million undocumented immigrants to gain deferral of deportation and authorization to legally work in the United States. Alongside fellow Virginia senator Mark Warner and many other members of Congress, Kaine signed on to an amicus brief in support of the program in the Supreme Court case of United States v. Texas.
Kaine also supports comprehensive immigration reform, which would allow persons illegally present in the U.S. to earn legal status by paying a fine and taxes.
Catholic wife oversees eduction policy in Virginia:
In 1984, Kaine married Anne Bright Holton, the daughter of former Virginia governor A. Linwood Holton, Jr. The couple met while they were both students at Harvard Law School. Holton has served as a judge for juvenile and domestic relations court in Richmond. After serving as first lady of Virginia during her husband’s term, she was appointed by [Jesuit coadjutor] Governor Terry McAuliffe in January 2014 to be Virginia’s secretary of education
