The Scandal of "Catholic" Joe Biden Continues

Joe Biden's statements continue to be a major problem for Americans and especially for Catholics.

We have seen this across the board with Biden, including crucial remarks about Vladimir Putin and Russia, where he constantly needs correction by his staff. But for Catholics, Biden has been particularly damaging on moral-cultural issues, where he is creating embarrassment and scandal for his Church. His destructive statements constitute a long list, but to make this article simple, let's stick with merely the most recent.

On the matter of unborn human life, Biden just dropped this whopper on the general public and people of his Church: "Roe says what all basic mainstream religions have historically concluded, that the existence of a human life and being is a question. Is it at the moment of conception? Is it six months? Is it six weeks? Is it quickening, like Aquinas argued?"

This assertion from Biden is particularly egregious. Americans definitely don't want this man speaking as an authority on where "all" mainstream religions define the existence of life, particularly given that, for starters, he evidently doesn't know where his own religion stands. Go online and you'll find numerous Protestants correcting Biden.

What Biden said is obviously not what Biden's Catholic Church teaches. This is not theology according to the Catechism or the Scriptures. I have long accepted the suffering task of following Speaker Nancy Pelosi--another lifelong and "pro-choice" Catholic--and I can tell you that Biden is echoing here not the theology of his Church but the theology of Nancy Pelosi.
