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!"
Went to church all his life, saw people turn to Christ and be saved, but as far as we know never ever bothered to do that personally, himself. Not an envyable position.
Looks to me like the laser malfunctioned. Back to the drawing board!
I’ve never seen ashes that dark. It’s not even in the shape of a cross. Looks more like dark eye shadow.
The Democrat politicians and the Democrat party win the Catholic vote, so whatever we think here, they know what they are doing.
The Obama/Biden ticket won 56% of the Catholic vote, they clearly have a relationship with Catholics that we are not seeing, or recognizing.
Or are they the ashes of the unborn and born babies left to die in the abortuaries that he so dearly champions?
What a disgusting creep!
you sure Barry didn’t just use it to put out a cigarette?
Biden is a CINO right? He is 100% Pro-Abortion. Maybe he forgot to put the cap on his black Crayola magic marker and inadvertantly marked his forehead.
So? Does that make JFK something special???? He did a lot of other things too. On and off camera. This has nothing to do with JFK. bidin wore his ashes with pride as he should have. Those who don’t like it can go you know where. That said...I’m not a bidin fan by no means but he is a Christian and so am I and that is our right and our religion. We’re not asking anyone else to join. Just to mind their own business and do whatever they do in their faith. Who cares? As long as it is what you believe and you feel peace and comfort...it’s not the business of any of the noisybodies out there.
This is intended for CBS ... not Steelfish. :)
I don't know that there is any special relationship aside from the historical congruence between Roman Catholicism and the Democrat party.
More, it is a matter today that the hierarchy of the Catholic Church, ALLOWS these people to be cafeteria Catholics.
Hence, Biden, in addition to receiving Communion, can continually state the lie that his political beliefs and actions, are in line with his “Catholic” faith
This is news to SeeBS News?
I guess that Obama’s claiming Christianity by proxy now.
I’d be happy with a separation of media and DNC.
And if I strap on a crucifix, that won’t make ME Catholic either, Joe. But at least I’m not trying to fool anyone — least of all myself. Joe.
Biden is a whore and Obama is a Muslim.
..and to show my respect I intend to give up Biden for Lent! Amen!
W. Francis Malooly has no spine.
Your mother is a smart cookie.
Based on the results of unscientific exit polls with suspect methodology and little veracity.
The Obama/Biden ticket won 56% of the Catholic voters based on the same election data that we have used all our lives and will use next election and the election after that.
The point your missing is that Biden doesn’t believe in the teachings of the Church. The public display of the ashes was for show only.
I’m not missing anything. The point I was making was it is HIS CHOICE and none of anyone else’s business to ridicule it. If biden doesn’t believe in the teachings of the Church and he used the ashes for show...that’s something HE will have to answer to. It is no one else’s business or right to mock another person’s religion or traditions.
