[The “practicing Catholic” V-P is a Marrying Sam for a sodomarriage, and the “traditional Catholic” V-P candidate is a Preacher Man at a liberal Negro Baptist convention; hat-tip to the StumblingBlock]

The Washington Post reports on what they call “the most extensive religious speech of the campaign season,” with vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine speaking at a Baptist convention.
Unsurprisingly, his support for abortion rights—and abortion’s devastating impact on African Americans—did not come up.
In perhaps the most extensive religious speech of the campaign season, which doubled as a plea to black voters, Democratic Vice Presidential candidate Tim Kaine on Thursday described his faith identity and values as shaped largely by his experiences living and worshiping among Latino and African American Christians.
Kaine’s talk before the Progressive National Baptist Convention, a 2.5-million-member, liberal black denomination, was sermon-like in its heavy religious message and cadence. It ended with the denomination’s president saying: “Give it up for Reverend Kaine!” and contained many scriptural references, tales of his work as a missionary and of praying with Hillary Clinton backstage at the Democratic National Convention.
