Joe Biden, ‘Practicing Catholic’

Originally posted at American Thinker

Amid all the smirking, chortling, and “give me a break, kid” sniggering that ill-mannered Joe Biden exhibited at the 2012 vice presidential debate, when he piously explained his stance on abortion, he exposed in totality the hypocrisy of liberal thinking.

Toward the end of the debate, Biden’s friend and one time houseguest, moderator Martha Raddatz, posed the following question to the candidates: “We have two Catholic candidates … [a]nd I would like to ask you both to tell me what role your religion has played in your own personal views on abortion[.]”

After Paul Ryan expressed how personal faith impacts his pro-life views, Joe Biden sobered up for a second and said, “My religion defines who I am, and I’ve been a practicing Catholic my whole life.”

Like many liberals, whether it’s a game of constitutional Twister or flexible religious creed, Joe fashions his faith to accommodate his personal beliefs.  Therefore, the vice president and the enthusiastically pro-abortion Barack Obama both feel comfortable calling themselves Christian.

Mr. Biden identifies with Roman Catholicism but doesn’t let that identity get in the way of his support of policy that directly contradicts church teaching on the sanctity of life.  Joe may believe he’s been “practicing” Catholicism his whole life, but he’d better keep those training wheels on his theological bicycle.

Echoing fellow Catholic Nancy Pelosi, Joe told Martha that except when it comes to the legally sanctioned death of innocent human beings, Catholicism has “particularly informed [his] social doctrine.”

According to Joe, “[t]he Catholic social doctrine talks about taking care of those who-who can’t take care of themselves, people who need help,” which Biden agrees with except when he’s approving of brutally dismantling helpless innocents “who can’t take care of themselves.”

But isn’t that what liberals do?  Quote Scripture and fund Planned Parenthood?  Talk about caring for the “least of these” and then lobby for dilation and curettage?  Receive communion and vote “yea” for partial-birth abortion?

After attempting to convince America of his firm commitment to the largest Christian church in the world, Joe Biden repeated twice that, “with regard to abortion,” the church’s position that “life begins at conception” is de fide, or “belonging to the essentials of the faith, by virtue of a papal ruling.”  Happy-go-lucky Joe said he accepts “divinely revealed teaching,” but only in his “personal life.”

In other words, Joe Biden’s liberal form of religion says that in the political realm he can grant himself dispensation to approve of, fund, and justify the murder of the unborn, all of which he claims he shuns when he’s at home or attending Mass.  Sorry, Joe, but Pontius Pilate found out that personal disapproval doesn’t erase the stain of innocent blood from guilty hands.

Biden further extended Christian charity to Raddatz, Ryan, and the Sandra Flukes of the world, as well as to “equally devout Christians, Muslims, and Jews,” whom Joe believes also condone abortion on demand.  Joe Biden explained that as a Christian, he cannot impose his unwavering devotion to Catholic doctrine on others.  However, he is perfectly comfortable with imposing an agonizing death on those whom, if he’d walk in the faith he professes, he could save.

For the entirety of the debate, Joe hid his Roman Catholic “light under a barrel,” especially when, referring to Paul Ryan, he said that “unlike my friend here, the-the congressman, I-I do not believe that we have a right to tell other people that — women they can’t control their body.”

Winding down his touching soliloquy on faith, Joe stressed that when it comes to abortion, “[i]t’s a decision between them and their doctor.  In my view and the Supreme Court, I’m not going to interfere with that[.]”  And Joe Biden is certainly not going to let God or the Catholic Church sway or interfere with that opinion.

In light of Biden’s lopsided philosophy, one can’t help but wonder whether the form of trendy religiosity he professes also believes that Jesus had no right to tell the adulterous woman to go “and sin no more.”  After all, she was a woman, and it was her body.

In the end, Joe Biden can smirk, sneer, and disparage Paul Ryan and his stance on abortion that marries truth, core conviction, and selflessness with personal faith all he wants.  For those who had ears to hear, Biden’s apostate theological view concerning abortion confirmed during the debate that, as Peter said in 2 Peter 3:3, “in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires.”  And those scoffers occupy the pews of the liberal Democratic Party, right alongside “practicing Catholics” like Joe Biden.

A Clinton Entendre Eulogy – American Thinker – July 4, 2010

Originally posted at American Thinker

America should hand it to Bill Clinton. The man is the master of manipulation, an oratorical genius.  Clinton can use words to turn the argument around like no one else on the planet.  Ex-President Clinton is able to parse language in such a way that after he is done playing with your head even the meaning of the word “is” becomes debatable.  Bill Clinton is so good that a whole generation of people actually believe sex isn’t sex.

Moreover, in the midst of playing lexicon Twister, Clinton somehow always includes in everything he says self-aggrandizing subliminal messages that relate to how people should view the extremely put-upon and misconstrued Bill Clinton.

At Senator Byrd’s funeral, Clinton met the challenge with courage and ventured forth where no eulogizer dared go.  Bill “humanized” Byrd by brazenly bringing up what every person was thinking, but no one had the chutzpah to broach.

In the bright morning sun, Clinton strode first to the podium and then drew Byrd’s mourners into the woods of West Virginia to talk about the scary white guys in big pointy hoods and long robes who burn crosses at family barbeques.

That’s right — while everyone else was tearfully avoiding Robert Byrd’s association with a racist lynch mob, Clinton lauded the deceased Senator by way of mentioning his “brief” involvement with the Ku Klux Klan and actually found a way to portray Byrd’s Klansmanship as an example of moral fiber.

Clinton justified Byrd’s involvement in the Knights Party, USA as a logical stepping-stone to elected office. Then the perpetually self-absorbed Clinton used the event to align himself with the 92-year old senator’s fleshly struggle.  Bill related from personal experience the deep concepts of repentance, redemption and the imperfection of man.

According to Clinton, if a person is trying to get elected beating up innocent black people, that should not disqualify them from the job even if it includes joining a white supremacist group known to kill people based on the color of their skin, religion or sexual orientation.

America’s original Man from Hope, speaking on behalf of the late Senator Byrd, said the following, “He once had a fleeting association with the Ku Klux Klan, what does that mean? I’ll tell you what it means. He was a country boy from the hills and hollows from West Virginia. He was trying to get elected.”

The former president’s statement can only mean if you aspire to political office, all bets are off and if serving the public is the ultimate goal, then the “end justifies the means.” After the “trying to get elected” comment, was Bill squinting because the sun was stinging his blue eyes or was he scanning the mourners’ faces to find Hillary?

Once again, Bill exercised the fine art of talking about one thing while actually referring to himself, which henceforth and in perpetuity should officially be called a “Clinton entendre.”  Disgraced politician Bill Clinton felt no shame dragging a dead guy to the plinth to use as a prop to garner sympathy for his poor, often misunderstood self.

America’s very own empathetic bottom-lip-biter, supposedly referring to Senator Robert Byrd, said

“And maybe he did something he shouldn’t have done and he spent the rest of his life making it up. And that’s what a good person does. There are no perfect people. There are certainly no perfect politicians.”

Thus when recapping Bill Clinton’s touching eulogy for “Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV)” the following points would be the highlights:

If you hail from a small town and aspire to high political office, it’s perfectly acceptable to lynch black people if it ensures getting you elected.

People do things they shouldn’t do.  Such as having “fleeting” perverted sex in the Oval Office with interns and then denying it, followed by contorting the English language like Houdini hanging upside downattempting to escape from a straightjacket. Topped off by perjury, impeachment, and spending two decades masquerading as a statesman, i.e. not “making up for it” but rather “making it up.”

Just because an individual once led the local chapter of a group that calls for the extermination of “dark-skinned people, Jews, Catholics and gays,” or you’re a lecherous sex fiend who disgraces the office of the president, it doesn’t mean you’re not a “good person.”

And, if anybody out there dares judge a president with a sex addiction or an ex-Ku Klux Klanner who just wanted to serve the public by running for office, Bill Clinton defies all accusers:  “If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone.”

Bill’s clarifying but confrontational words challenged those critical of the late Robert Byrd for aligning with a faction that, if given the chance, would string up the guy sitting next to Joe Biden on the dais who, as the first black president, is overseeing the lynching of America.

Former President Bill Clinton’s acclamations for Senator Robert Byrd served as a reminder that even good men have been known to utilize a burning cross to light a Gurkha cigar or two, because in America “There are certainly no perfect politicians.”
