According to the media, Tim Kaine took a life transforming "mission" trip to Latin America in 1980. Conveniently left out of these stories, are the radical reality of the Cold War in Latin America and Tim Kaine's Soviet sympathizing mentors. In fact, whatever Kaine's intentions, he more likely met Karl Marx than Jesus Christ while there.

Connect the dots with a little history, and an alarming picture emerges of Kaine's adventures with radicals and revolutionaries in 1980s Latin America.

Reports indicate that in Honduras, “Mr. Kaine embraced an interpretation of the gospel, known as liberation theology...”

This wasn't mainstream “Catholic thought” at the time. It was a radical, Marxist-based ideology at odds with the Church, the pope, and the United States, but supportive of (and supported by) the Soviet Union.

To counter Vatican opposition to this theology, now published documents from the Soviet and East German archives show “active measures” were undertaken to undermine the Vatican and the pope — key barriers to a Soviet influence in Latin America.

The documents are detailed in books by former Associated Press Berlin bureau chief, John Koehler and the Mitrokhin Archive data published by Cambridge University Professor Christopher Andrew.

Tim Kaine's political formation wasn't pro-American or pro-Catholic, it was pro-Soviet.

Liberation Theology's recent second wind has been achieved by disavowing its Marxist roots. Francis' doctrinal chief Cardinal Mueller is seen as friendly, but stated: “true liberation theology is opposed to Marxism.”

That wasn't the case in the 1980s. Then, Kaine embraced not some reconstituted, post-Marxist version, but the hardcore, Cold War variety — an avowed Marxist ideology inimical to the institutional Catholic Church and to the United States.

Did Kaine's mentors teach him the art of Soviet disinformation — call yourself the very thing you seek to undermine and try to destroy it from within?

If that is what he's doing, does it apply just to his faith, or to his country as well?

In Virginia he ran as a moderate and ruled as a liberal. Today he runs as a “Pope Francis” Catholic but on abortion and marriage, Kaine opposes Francis.

On the conscience rights of groups like the Little Sisters of the Poor, Kaine sided with Obama. Francis sided with the Little Sisters, whom he visited in Washington a year ago to publicly show his support.

As in the 1980s, Kaine's “Catholicism” serves neither his Church nor his country, but a Leftist political agenda that has proven to be on the wrong side of the Church, on the wrong side of history, and against the interests of freedom and the United States.

Odds are about equal that he met neither of them. Equal as in zero.

 

Jesus and Karl are both deceased and neither had any interest in South America.

 

Politically, he is no more a leftist than Pope Francis.

 

He was a moderate governor of Virginia, and people liked him.

Remind me: How often does Jesus talk about the virtues of capitalism?

Jesus did not seem to have a positive view of the money changers in the Temple.

He apparently supported himself by begging.

 

"Rebecca, have the maid set the table for 18 tonight. Fella named Jesus and his 12 disciples are coming for dinner tonight."

 

Always find it perplexing when people use Jesus to support their capitalistic ideology.

I hate it when people use any religion to support their ideologies.

 

Tim Kaine is really invisible.. He will make a fair VPOTUS and can do the job if Hillary gets slammed

 

I actually have more faith in Pence to do the right thing than Trump

 

 

Kaine is considered a conservative.
