Don’t be deceived by “good Catholic politicians”!

Are you as disappointed as I am about so-called Catholic politicians claiming to be good or traditional Catholics when their political positions are much closer to the Episcopal Church? I don’t know if they are misled or deceitful but they are misleading many Catholics about what their Church believes in.
Take Tim Kaine who supports Hillary’s call for free taxpayer supported abortions. The Catholic Church opposes all abortions. The Episcopal Church believes that Abortion is a tragedy but leaves the final decision to the woman. Kaine also supports same-sex marriages, contraception and women priests all of which is opposed by the Catholic Church but acceptable in the Episcopal Church. He is a better Episcopalian than he is a Catholic.
It seems that modern Americans think the Church should change with the times but that contradicts the basic mission of the Church which is to help us get into heaven. Two weeks ago in the Sunday gospel Jesus talked about entering Heaven through the narrow gate. Does that gospel sound like the way to Heaven is easy or to be like the rest of society? We are called to be different from society, not in tune with sinful times.
Why should we change into another version of the Episcopal Church? Would that be staying true to the faith established by Jesus Christ and for which all of the Apostles except John died for? Would we be true to the faith for which Thomas More, John Fisher and over 100 English martyrs gave their lives. Would we be true to the Church, of St. Patrick,St. Francis, St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Catherine of Siena, St. Theres of Avila, Mother Theresa, Maximilian Kolbe and Padre Pio? Would we be any better than Henry VIII and Martin Luther?
Despite what the media wants, despite what the politicians want the Church cannot change its basic teachings and be the Church created by Jesus Christ? We cannot say yes to Abortion, contraception or same-sex marriage just because that would make us popular. The Church and Pope are accountable to God. The bishops, pope, cardinals and priests will all die and have to face God.
Would you want to explain to God why you misled His Church, why you allowed His children to be slaughtered by the millions and said nothing?
We need to remember Hebrews 13:8 ” Jesus is the same, yesterday, today and forever”. His teachings do not change. He never approve immorality. Remember the last words He said to the woman caught in adultery; “go and sin no more”.
Don’t be deceived by deceitful politicians who only want your vote.
