Biden Says Heíll Attend Dinner With Cardinals ĎOr Iíll Lose My Soulí
TPM ^ | 3/18/13 | TOM KLUDT

Looking ahead to a reception scheduled for Monday evening in Rome that will feature American Cardinals, Vice President Joe Biden quipped that his attendance at the event is mandatory if he wishes to retain his soul.

According to the vice president's office, Biden will attend the reception at Villa Aurelia in Rome along with the Presidential Delegation to the Inaugural Mass of Pope Francis, U.S. Cardinals, U.S. Members of Congress, and officials from U.S Embassy Rome, the U.S. Embassy to the Holy See and the U.S. Mission to the United Nations Agencies in Rome.

Speaking with Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic on Monday at Villa Aurelia, Biden joked that his own allegiance to Catholicism mandated that he attend the reception.

"We invited the American cardinals to a reception," Biden said, according to a vice presidential pool report. "So unless I'm prepared to join the Eastern Orthodox Church, as a Roman Catholic, I'd better show up or I'll lose my soul."

Just don’t show the temerity to request communion, Joe, because the new pope just put pro-abortion Catholics on the “do not serve” list...

I wish I believed he was just a big dope, but I doubt that.
There is no way you can get to where he is and stay there, without having some serious political skills and in has case, I believe he is a dirt bag. The dopey uncle joe gag is just a cover.

He speaks the partial truth. He must confess and repent first. ;^)

[”We invited the American cardinals to a reception,” Biden said, according to a vice presidential pool report].......

It sounds as though the US Embassy is sponsoring this reception. That may be why he made the statement. Joe Biden has got to be one of the dumbest people in politics. OTOH, the Democrats have so many really stooooopid people, that Joe may make it to the middle of the pack rather easily.

You might wanna ask them about that whole ‘baby killing’ thing too, as it applies to ‘losing your soul’

I LIKED Quayle’s comments about Murphy Brown

But I immediately knew he was out of the game when they media attacked him and he got the ‘deer in the headlights’ look trying to defend it.

Where Democraps double-down, our side runs and hides. Even when we are right.

Joe, you’ve already lost your soul by supporting abortion, same-sex marriage and euthanasia.

Didn’t you know by these broad actions that you had excommunicated yourself?

This presupposes that VP Joe Biden has a soul that could be lost. If he did, he surrendered it to Satan long ago. Too late, Bonzo.

He was probably expecting another free dinner and meant “sole.”
