One of the most revolting aspects of the sinister corruptocrat Old Joe Biden’s carefully cultivated public persona as affable Lunchbucket Joe is his ostentatious false piety. “I go to Mass and I say the rosary. I find it to be incredibly comforting,” Biden claimed in a 2020 campaign ad, and the establishment media has pushed this nonsense as well.
“The new president,” the New York Times announced three days after Joe started pretending to be president, “elevates a liberal Catholicism that once seemed destined to fade away.” By “liberal Catholicism,” the Times means an ostentatious, external piety emptied of all its content and cynically designed to win Catholic votes, and the Biden regime has now underscored that fact by trying to force pro-lifers to pay for abortions. If that’s Catholicism, Joe, I’m Fidel Castro.
LifeNews reported Wednesday that the regime is planning to end the legal right to object on moral grounds to the “HHS mandate.” The “HHS mandate,” LifeNews explains, is “the term commonly used to refer to the requirement under Obamacare for employers to pay for abortifacients, contraceptives, and sterilization in their health insurance plans.” Now Biden’s handlers have made “a formal proposal to create a new regulation” that would “strip away the rights of organizations to refuse to comply with the HHS mandate because they have a moral objection to abortion, contraceptives, or sterilization.” Does this violate the First Amendment’s guarantee of freedom of religion? Of course. But they’ll get away with it unless and until the Supreme Court stops them. That could take a while.
When the Obama regime first imposed the HHS mandate in 2013, it noted that religious groups were exempt; even then, however, “the exemption was so narrow that even some churches couldn’t qualify.” Pro-lifers challenged the mandate in courts and won a series of victories that secured their exemption from having to pay for abortions. Then the Trump administration put a rule in place that specifically protected religious groups from being harassed on the basis of the HHS mandate. Now, however, “the Biden proposal would rescind the Trump rule and force non-religious employers with only a moral objection to comply.”
Can you imagine the March for Life, one of the foremost pro-life organizations in the country, having to pay for abortions? Old Joe Biden can. LifeNews notes that March for Life “previously sued the Obama administration on the matter and won in a lower court before the case was mooted by the Trump rule.” But now Catholic Joe wants to strip away those protections. March for Life and every other pro-life organization in the country would find its tax dollars going to fund the national sacrifices to Moloch. That sure is living your faith, Joe!
Roger Severino, a Trump-era HHS official, explained what this initiative is all about: “It’s all politics. They have to answer to their radical pro-abortion base. They couldn’t stomach the fact that they have lost this issue at every stage at the Supreme Court, and they want to show that they are continuing to resist in the wake of the Dobbs ruling… This is a purely political stunt to try to send a message to institutions with moral objections to the sexual revolution.”
Yes, and that message is quite ominous. The Biden regime is working to restrict the freedom of speech (as we saw with its ill-fated Disinformation Governance Board and its pressure on Twitter to silence dissidents) and the right to bear arms; now it is trying to gut the freedom of religion as well.
All it would need to destroy that freedom utterly would be five compliant Supreme Court Justices. It doesn’t have them now and we can hope that it never will, but nevertheless, the Biden regime is without a doubt laying the foundation for the destruction of the right of citizens to dissent on religious grounds from the government’s soul- and life-destroying far-Left agenda.
Catholic Joe could end up going down in history as one of the foremost enemies of the right to life. This would be an odd legacy for such an ostentatiously Catholic president, and it exposes Old Joe once again as the inveterate liar that he is. In fact, the one certain thing amid all this is that a foremost aspect of the Biden legacy will be a series of tremendous advances and victories for the Father of Lies.

Time to excommunicate Biden or just ban him from the Catholic Church for the rest of his life

Add Nasty Nancy to the list!

“I go to Mass and I say the rosary. I find it to be incredibly comforting,”
Are we expected to believe this nonsense?
Why does he say “Rosary” like ….”rosaryee” People ‘say Rosary to pray for something of import?.
“NYT’s announced three days after Joe started pretending to be president, “elevates a liberal Catholicism that once seemed destined to fade away.””.
Hate to tell the NYT this but there is no “liberal Catholicism”. Seems to be made up by agnostic atheists at that former newspaper. Catholics are traditionally Conservative, and we respect our churches teaching. Stretching truths or placing weird ideologies in its place is nothing short of sacrilegious.
And in Biden’s case simply wrong. Sometimes Bidens playacting borders on egregious .
Biden is not a real Catholic, het is a CINO!
Sure. I’ll pay to abort him. Where do I send the check?
David Ray says
Leftists have no problem with post-birth abortions, as the Democrat Virginia governor made clear.
They just haven’t agreed on the amount of time should be available after birth to kill the baby.
So if we stretch the time slot, maybe we can send donations to abort that empty suit.
Joe Biden isn’t a Catholic. Not even close. Anyone can call themselves whatever they like, but that doesn’t make it true. Bruce Jenner ,now Caitlyn, is not a woman despite people believing he is one. Rachelle Dozier is not a black woman despite all her attempts to pass herself off as one.
In no way, shape or form is Biden a Catholic. The biggest issue in the Catholic Church by far has always been abortion. More so than the economy, or any single issue. The right to life. Joe Biden is in direct opposition to almost every teaching of the Catholic Church from abortion to gay marriage. He is corrupt to the core. He is not a Catholic by any measure.
Catholicism, Protestantism and liberalism don’t mix. You can’t be both. You can’t pick and choose what you want out of the Bible. Oh, I like this, but I’m going to ignore that. If that’s the case then it becomes Joe Biden’s own religion, or Pelsoi’s religion, or John Doe’s religion.
And if their is a God, which I believe their is, Joe Biden is going to find out the hard way what the punishment is for mocking Him.,
And Sebastion lecturing us about Christianity doesn’t necessarily make Sebastion a Christian.
And it figures you would ignore the context of the article about corrupt Joe Biden being a “Catholic”.
I guess you’re still butt hurt over the fact I called you out on going to a fake church that is pro abortion, pro gay marriage and has numerous woke “preachers”. Oh yea, you like the organist.
Truth hurts doesn’t it, buddy. But don’t worry about me. You should be getting down on your hands and knees begging for God’s forgiveness instead of getting on your knees for the organist.
The Catholic Church itself, at all levels, from the Anti-Pope Bergoglio to the overwhelming majority of the clerical class, are in full agreement with the heretic Biden and the globalist cabal behind him. We are truly living in the end times.
Steve Chavez says
He says the Rosary? Ronald Reagan: “Trust but Verify.”
I’d like to hear him say The Lord’s Prayer, the Rosary, and how long it has been since his last confession, AND HOW LONG THAT TOOK INSIDE THE CONFESSIONAL since the man is a habitual liar! Priest interrupts: “Who’s the Big Guy and what does the 10% mean?” FJB: “I have no idea.” Priest: “Add another lie to the hundreds.” FJB: “I never lie you dog pony show!”
WHY DOES THE GOVERNMENT give PP up to $500 million a year and then in the 2022, PP gave $40 million to Democrat campaigns? TO BE FAIR, how about giving the NRA $500 million and they can then fund Republicans? BOOM! What? One kills humans, the other saves Humans. Name one NRA member that has gone on a shooting rampage!
“IN TWENTY YEARS, the Human Race will label “Abortion is the Most Evil Act ever performed on Humans by Humans.”
Second will be Slavery. Third will be the KKK. Fourth will be Modern Day Slavery! What do they all have in common? BINGO! Yes, The (D)evils like Joe Biden!
And here was me thinking (as per The Atlantic) that the Rosary is an assault weapon and lefties like Biden want to get rid of them; along with the AR-15, AK-47, etc etc etc. OK. Maybe not any more. But pro-abortion liberals like Biden and Pelosi et al do believe that every woman has the “right” to abort their child up to … and maybe after … birth. “Every woman” presumably includes the Blessed Virgin Mary.
No Catholic … no Christian … can believe in such a blasphemous ideology.
Read the first Chapter of Luke for more information.
Christopher Riddle says
If Joe”Bite Me”is a CATHOLIC,then I’m a RABBI????????????????
What a hypocrite. Goes to church??
Approves abortion and infanticide.
He is a lost cause and his words mean nothing. So sad that we have him representing our country. He is worse than Obama.
This is a prime example of the apostasy that we see in the last days in the churches. Jesus said in Matthew 15:8 These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. They worship me in vain; their teachings are but rules taught by men. Nobody who honors God believes in deliberate destruction of life, perverting God’s creation..man and woman, and abusing children through depraved and dangerous conduct such as Transgenderism.
The Rosary, the Rosary, the Rosary. There, I just said “The Rosary” 3 times. Go to Mass? He can’t find his way off a stage; how would he know where he is?
Remember when Biden tried to quote from the “book of palms”? What a piece of work he is. From his Thanksgiving 2020 speech: “If we do and I’m sure we can, we can proclaim the Palmist … with the Palmist who wrote these following words, ‘The Lord is my strength and my shield’,” Biden read aloud.
B Seidem says
Old Biden and his wife will be burning in Hades shortly. Just like most catholics.
Mad Celt says
