To the editor: The contrast between Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump could not be more clear. ("How Honduras helped vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine find his mission in life," Oct. 3)

Kaine worked as a civil rights lawyer for 17 years, specializing in housing discrimination cases. On the other hand, Trump and his father were sued for refusing to rent to African Americans in their apartment complexes.

Those of us who came of political age in the 1960s used to say that you are either part of the problem or part of the solution. There is no doubt which side of this chasm Kaine and Trump are each standing on.

To the editor: It is commendable that Kaine made a life-changing mission trip to Honduras in the 1980s. However, although he claims to be a "devout Catholic," his pro-choice stance is contrary to the fundamental church teaching that abortion is wrong.

According to Planned Parenthood, his voting record has been 100% in its favor. Now, he shares a ticket with a nominee who would force taxpayers to pay for abortions.

Kaine cannot play the Catholic card while supporting the killing of innocent babies.
