And it came to pass after many days, that Cain offered, of the fruits of the earth, gifts to the Lord. Abel also offered of the firstlings of his flock, and of their fat: and the Lord had respect to Abel, and to his offerings. But to Cain and his offerings he had no respect: and Cain was exceedingly angry, and his countenance fell.
And the Lord said to him: Why art thou angry? and why is thy countenance fallen? If thou do well, shalt thou not receive? but if ill, shall not sin forthwith be present at the door? but the lust thereof shall be under thee, and thou shalt have dominion over it. And Cain said to Abel his brother: Let us go forth abroad. And when they were in the field, Cain rose up against his brother Abel, and slew him. And the Lord said to Cain: Where is thy brother Abel? And he answered, I know not: am I my brother’ s keeper? And he said to him: What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother’ s blood crieth to me from the earth.
Now, therefore, cursed shalt thou be upon the earth, which hath opened her mouth and received the blood of thy brother at thy hand.
– Genesis 4: 3-11
Yes. The name of Hillary Clinton’s running mate immediately drew my attention. Specifically, the last name – Kaine.
All I could think of was Cain in Scripture, a man who fell far short in his offering to God.
The ‘pudding on the cake,’ so to speak, is the fact that Kaine’s first name TOTALLY reinforces the last name, in the Biblical sense –
Timothy means, “to honor God.’
Interestingly, his last name is dreived from Hebrew and means, ‘acquired spear’ or ‘battle.’
So his name is ‘to honor God’ and then ‘acquired spear, battle.’
Well, that’s pretty much the story of Cain, isn’t it?
All this, from the party that literally leads the culture of death in the United States.
Indeed the blood of the unborn, a group so disrespected by liberals in America, cries out from the earth.
I’d say pro-abortion Hillary Clinton picked an appropriate running mate.

Bishop Thomas Tobin discusses Kaine’s ‘Catholicism’ (from his Facebook page) –
VP Pick, Tim Kaine, a Catholic?
Democratic VP choice, Tim Kaine, has been widely identified as a Roman Catholic. It is also reported that he publicly supports “freedom of choice” for abortion, same-sex marriage, gay adoptions, and the ordination of women as priests. All of these positions are clearly contrary to well-established Catholic teachings; all of them have been opposed by Pope Francis as well.
Senator Kaine has said, “My faith is central to everything I do.” But apparently, and unfortunately, his faith isn’t central to his public, political life.
