Joe Biden Is Such A ‘Devout Catholic’ He’ll Persecute The Church If Elected

The former vice president opens himself to criticism by constantly touting the depth of his Catholic faith while publicly flouting every one of its teachings.
There’s been some confusion about journalists labeling Joe Biden a “devout Catholic.” For those of you who luckily don’t work in the media industry, let me fill you in.
A “devout Catholic” is a politician who claims to be Catholic, yet dissents from the church’s social teaching on causes that are near and dear to leftist pundits. So, on the one hand, Biden supports taxpayer-funded abortion, has officiated at a same-sex wedding, and vowed to force nuns to buy the Pill. On the other, he wears a rosary around his wrist, which according to CNN makes him Mother Teresa in a blue blazer.
Meanwhile, a public figure who upholds Catholic social teaching—Amy Coney Barrett, for instance—is not “devout,” but an extremist. Hopefully, that clears things up.
Now, far be it from me to judge Biden’s faith. That’s between him, his confessor, and God. Yet the former vice president surely opens himself to criticism by constantly touting the depth of his Catholic faith while publicly flouting every one of its teachings.
Don’t get me wrong: I’d love to have another Catholic in the White House. But that assumes a President Biden would govern like a Catholic, and not a generic liberal Democrat, which seems doubtful.
A Rabidly Anti-Catholic Veep
What’s even more dangerous to American Catholics than Biden is his number two. Kamala Harris, the newly minted Democratic candidate for vice president, is the most anti-Catholic politician to serve in public office since the decline of the Know Nothing movement in the 19th century.
Strong words, but true. Two years ago, Harris grilled a gentleman named Brian Buescher over his membership to the Knights of Columbus during a Senate hearing. President Trump had nominated Buescher to fill a vacancy on the U.S. District Court in Nebraska. During her interview, Harris asked Buescher:
Since 1993, you have been a member of the Knights of Columbus, an all-male society comprised primarily of Catholic men. In 2016, Carl Anderson, leader of the Knights of Columbus, described abortion as ‘a legal regime that has resulted in more than 40 million deaths.’ Mr. Anderson went on to say that ‘abortion is the killing of the innocent on a massive scale.’ Were you aware that the Knights of Columbus opposed a woman’s right to choose when you joined the organization?
Buescher calmly replied, “I do not recall if I was aware whether the Knights of Columbus had taken a position on the abortion issue when I joined at the age of eighteen.” The answer, for those playing at home, is Yes. The Knights of Columbus, as a Catholic fraternal organization, have opposed abortion since the order was established in 1882. So as has the Catholic Church since it was founded circa 33 A.D.
