Joe Biden the cussing Catholic
Examiner.com ^ | March 24, 2010 | Réne Girard

Posted on 03/24/2010 12:40:10 PM PDT by RGirard

By now everyone in San Diego has surely heard of Joe Biden's well-publicized remark to President Obama after the U.S. House of Representatives passed HR 3962, The Affordable Health Care for America Act, when Biden turned to embrace Barack and said "This is a big (expletive) deal!" Joe Biden, known for saying the wrong thing at the wrong time, is also known as a practicing Catholic - recently seen with a smudge of ash on his forehead from Ash Wednesday. So far Joe Biden, the cussing Catholic, has yet to apologize to the American people, or, as far as we know, to the President of the United States, or to anyone else.

Keep in mind, this was done in the White House, in front of cameras, in front of microphones he had just used to introduce the President, in front of the Press and all who may have been present, and so far no one in Washington cares enough to apologize in an attempt to right the wrong. Therein lies a big part of the problem. Does Cussing Joe not even realize that what he did was wrong? How devout is this Catholic from whom expletives flow, seemingly oblivious to the fact that cussing is against the faith he professes to believe in? ...

I just think it is hilarious that he felt the need to point this out to his boss at that time.

It’s a pose anyway. The pro-abortion belief gives the game away.

Kind of like how Barry and other Marxists pretend to be Christians. It’s a tactic to get votes and to disarm critics.

But at least they feel the need to pose. The day when come when it will no longer be necessary for the lefty fascists to pretend.

Like all fascists, they respect worldly power and violence, and hence muslims earn their respect, and they despise real Christianity.

Obama’s appointment of Biden as his VP candidate was an act of contempt for America. Biden adopted a British politician’s biography complete with stories of his coal mining father. No Republican could have survived being caught in that humiliating and bizarre a lie. The Communist/Dems relish showing their power by keeping the Bidens and the Barney Franks in power . . . and advancing them and giving them more power. It’s an insult and I bet it is laughed about.

Biggio, Berkman and Bagwell object to that nickname.

I think the fact that he is a pro-abort is about 100X more important than the fact that he utters the occasional F-Bomb.

There is nothing Biden does that is not for political ends.

If tomorrow he saw political gain in persecuting Catholics, he would do that. Just like he doesn’t mind killing babies before AND DURING birth if it gets him liberal votes.

It is too bad Stevens is deliberately planning his retirement this summer so the democrat senate majority can put Biden on the Supreme Court before the November elections.

There would be no better proof of a just God than having Biden on the grill of a Republican controlled Senate at his confirmation hearing. The souls of Bork, Thomas, Alito would be put at rest.

Speaking for Catholics, I wish he’d practice Buddhism.

This is a Religion thread, so I guess I need to be careful what I say, but Joe reminds me of my Catholic cousins who swear like sailors 24-7. What’s up with that? Is it some sort of cultural thing? They’re very nice, but the language!

No offense, but what is up with all these Catholics in Congress? Pelosi, Stupak, Sanchez, Dingel, Oberstar, Rangel,Kucinich, Perriello? All of them voted in favor of abortion. What gives?

They give themselves a little escape hatch: “the well-formed concience is the ultimate arbiter”. (They then fail to actually develop a well-formed conscience.)
Also, there is the “personally opposed but” my own beliefs shouldn’t color things when my constituents’ views are something else.
Also, there is the fact that you will never rise in the Democratic Party in places like California if you don’t say you are pro-choice. So, it’s cave in or never arise above city council member.
Also, there is the “big-picture”— I’m saving more lives by being against war, poverty, sexism. I can make abortion “rare” and save lives by providing government assistance where needed.

I think that’s “what gives”.

Biden is not a REAL Catholic. Otherwise he would not be a dimocrat.

He is only a CINO — Catholic in Name Only.

Sorry to disappoint you.
