Joe Biden’s rosary beads

“President Biden’s supporters repeatedly claim that he is a devout Catholic. In 2005, Biden himself protested those who questioned his Catholicism: “The next Republican that tells me I’m not religious I’m going to shove my rosary beads down their throat.” But the words of Jesus are foreboding: “Not every one who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.” [Mt. 7:21] Biden’s habitual and unapologetic sinful acts are on full display.

In less than a month after his inauguration, he issued a statement celebrating the 48th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. He said he is “committed to codifying” the decision that legalized abortion. He promised he will be “appointing judges that respect foundational precedents like Roe.” He rescinded the pro-life Mexico City Policy, which ensured that foreign aid would not go to organizations that perform or refer for abortions.

Biden revoked the Trump administration’s ban on so-called gender transitioning in the military, allowing troops to serve based on their gender identity. He called on Congress to quickly pass the Equality Act, which would add sexual orientation and gender identity as protected classes under the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The Washington Post called Joe Biden a “president who has been called the most pro-transgender in history.”

Biden’s nominee to lead the Department of Health and Human Services, Xavier Becerra, like Biden is Catholic. But contrary to the moral law, he supports legislation that permits partial-birth abortion, forces every healthcare plan to pay for abortions, forces pro-life pregnancy centers to advertise abortions, forces the Little Sisters of the Poor to pay for contraception and abortion drugs, and allows assisted suicide.

For most of his political life—from his consistent pro-abortion record to his officiating at a gay wedding in 2016—despite his Catholic affiliation and public pious practices, Joe Biden has magnified and institutionalized countless major violations of the Ten Commandments. The hypocrisy rivals that of the chief priests and Pharisees and is worthy of the same condemnation. Indeed, Biden is the most aggressively anti-Catholic President in history.” Fr. Pokorsky

Comment:

This priest is unlikely to be ordained a bishop. Like all hierarchical organizations the Catholic Church rewards folks who do not stray from “the mainstream.” Shut up, stay in line, and suck up to the boss may or may not be behavior taught in diocesan seminaries but the behavior of successful clergy indicates that it may be.

Pokorsky is the opposite of that. Not only does he condemn the high and mighty like Becerra and Biden but he has few good things to say about the bishops and their toleration of those who give scandal by their flagrant defiance of Church teaching.

As I said, he is unlikely to be promoted. pl

    What he says is true. I hope others find the strength to do similar things, now that our votes do not matter very much.

    Colonel, I don’t think this man is looking for a promotion down here.

      You should not always take what I say as other than a rhetorical gesture.

        As always, many things fail to make the transition in a quick reply. Face to face over some nice meat and wine is far better means of communication. Another reason I enjoy your site…thanks…

    Safe, legal, rare. That ‘rare’ part lasted almost as long as Joe’s reputation.

  3. TV says:

    Add in Pelosi and a bunch of other once-a-year Catholics politicians.
    But it works, like so many other flagrant hypocrisies and massive dishonesty.
    How does a democracy survive when the mass of voters are uninformed, badly educated, immature sheep?

  4. Deap says:

    Pro abortion = men who DON’T want to pay for 18 years of child support payments. Like Hunter Biden.

    • Fred says:

      Biden has supported it on the “get the women’s vote” principle, not out of concern for children born or unborn.

  5. mcohen says:

    looks like the beads are either down his throat or up his trumpet but either way it could make for some interesting high c

    high C in British English

    (haɪ siː) music. the note two octaves above middle C, deemed to be a test of a singer’s ability.
