February 17, 2010 Biden's Forehead Shows Ash Wednesday Mark [Pic in URL] Posted by Brian Montopoli
(AP)Vice President Joe Biden appeared at an event marking the one-year anniversary of the economic stimulus package today with a noticeable black smidge on his forehead.
For many the mark was immediately recognizable as the ashes given to Catholics on Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. Biden, America's first Catholic vice president, also received ashes, which are meant to symbolize repentance and serve as a reminder of human mortality, last year.
On Wednesday morning, President Obama issued a statement commemorating Ash Wednesday, saying he and First Lady Michelle Obama "mark this solemn day of repentance and promise, knowing that Lent is a time for millions to renew faith and also deepen a commitment to loving and serving one another."
America has had one Catholic president, John F. Kennedy, but he was reportedly never photographed with ashes on his forehead.

God is not mocked ... nor is He blind.
Jus’ gonna’ say, why was Biden wasting his time.
The reporter must have a headcold, because even from Albuquerque I can smell what’s smeared on his forehead the same stuff that he’s been stepping in for sometime now!
Another pro-abort Catholic receiving Communion?
What a surprise.
“Turn away from sin and be faithful to the Gospel” is what I heard this morning at Mass upon receiving the Palm ashes.
Blowback from a salad-tossing incident?
Why are they Brown?
Is he saying the Catholic Church is now supporting abortion on demand?
Well, if I were the bishop in the Wilmington diocese, I know one politician from whom I would instruct my priests to withhold the sacraments. The Church will not be mocked either.
Maybe he’ll give up his job for Lent...
How will he stand when he stands before God and explains why he was so for abortion, lied so much, and supported everything that goes against God?
Notice how Obama sends messages to the Islamic countries, but can not comment on
Put ash on a Donk and you still have a Donk.
I noticed this, and my first thought was it was a lobotamy scar...
My mom says “Ritual motions without righteous emotions are unacceptable devotions.” Fits here.
One of his hair plugs just short circuited.
So much for separation of church and state.
I always preferred "You are dust, and to dust you shall return." It brings to mind the ravings of the Baptist, "Repent! Repent!"
