"The actual position of the Catholic Church is that any law legalizing the killing of an unborn child is an unjust law that violates the natural law and is, therefore, no law at all. Vice President Bidens church teaches that it is not acceptable even to obey such laws let alone support them as part of a political campaign."
But then if the law did not legalize abortion who commits the crime and what should be the penalty?
OK, here’s a question on ethics for all of us:
We all know that Biden has a history of saying very unwise things, that he seems not to be able to remember the official line of the Administration, and that there are YouTube videos showing him speaking and acting in a way that makes him appear to be drunk. We also know that he has had brain surgery.
After that debate the other night, my clinical spidey-sense started tingling. Inappropriate affect—which is to say, the display of bizarre emotional responses—is one of the first symptoms of dementia. As I saw Biden laughing at the prospect of a nuclear Iran blowing Israel off the map, I wondered if we were seeing dementia. I understand that he’s never been a bright man and that he was a sell-out, a lib, and a hypocrite long before he had any brain problems, but this is getting worse. He’s nuts.
Last night the John Batchelor show had a professor of psychiatry from Stanford who said much the same thing. He cited Biden’s long history of what he called “inadequate reality testing” (self-deception) and inappropriate emotional displays, and he too concluded that something organic is going on with Biden.
So the question is: to what extent do we think a man with early dementia and some kind of organic brain damage is really responsible for his words and decisions? If he speaks and behaves in a hypocritical fashion about his Catholic faith, incurring strong words from Catholic bishops, I’m kind of starting to wonder if he’s just too brain-damaged to know what he’s doing.
What is the sense of the forum on this?
