‘Catholic’ Biden To Lead Delegation To Vatican

From Life News.com:

“Catholic” Joe Biden to Lead U.S. Delegation to Greet Pope Francis

By Steven Ertelt | |March 13, 2013

Washington, DC - Never mind that Vice President Joe Biden has been rebuked by his own bishop over his pro-abortion views, he will lead the U.S. delegation to the installation of Pope Francis, the White House said today.

Biden is the first Catholic to serve as vice president and he will represent the United States at the installation Mass for Pope Francis on March 19, Vatican spokesman the Rev. Tom Rosica confirmed today.

Will he bring along some gifts from Obama? Maybe some condoms and morning after pills.

Still, isn’t this a cold, calculated slap in the face to the Catholic Church the new ‘conservative’ Pope? Besides being a buffoon, Joe Biden is a famous proponent of abortion and same sex marriage. And, as this article rightly points out, he is notorious for mis-stating the Church’s positions, time and again.

After all, there are plenty of other ‘high ranking’ government figures who could represent the US. Anthony Scalia, John Boehner, Paul Ryan. (Of course, the similarly famous ‘Catholic,’ Nancy Pelosi, will probably attend as well. She is also notorious for lying about the Church’s positions.)

Biden’s own bishop has had to correct the pro-abortion politician on his misstating the pro-life teachings of the Catholic Church.

In the interview with the Delaware News Journal, Biden continued to misrepresent the position of the Catholic Church on abortion in a way that has gotten him in trouble.

“But throughout the church’s history, we’ve argued between whether or not it is wrong in every circumstance and the degree of wrong. Catholics have this notion, it’s almost a gradation,” Biden claimed.

Not so, says Rev. W. Francis Malooly, the bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Wilmington. He wrote in a letter to the editor that Biden “presents a seriously erroneous picture of Catholic teaching on abortion.”

“This is simply incorrect,” he says of Biden’s interpretation. “The teaching of the Church is clear and not open to debate. Abortion is a grave sin because it is the wrongful taking of an innocent human life.” …

Why not lie about Church Doctrine? Biden lies about everything else. What is so sacred about religion?

Meanwhile, we have this from Hugo Chavez’s Joe Biden:

From the Agence France Presse:

Maduro claims Chavez swung race for Argentine pope

14 March 2013

AFP – Venezuela’s acting president Nicolas Maduro joked on Wednesday that late leftist president Hugo Chavez’s recent death must have played into the selection of the first Latin American pope.

"We know that our commander has risen up there and is face to face with Christ," Maduro said, to an outburst of laughter at a political event, just over a week after Chavez died following 14 years in charge of Venezuela.

"Something must have influenced things so that a South American pope was chosen. Some new hand arrived and got to Christ and said: It is South America’s time. That’s what I think," Maduro, Chavez’ handpicked successor, declared…

The AFP assumes Mr. Maduro was joking. It could just be a case of Venezuela’s ‘Joe being Joe.’

    God and the devil …. in the same place, same time.

  3. BannedbytheTaliban

    Perhaps he will greet the new Pontiff with a ‘garden variety slap across the face.’

    Understanding that the new Pope has stated that NO Pro-Abortion “Catholic” will be allowed to receive Holy Communion, thing should get interesting for ole Joe.

      Would be nice if the new Pope asked for both Biden and Pelosi’s repentance. And denied them both admission to any Catholic church until they did. Their positions on both Abortion and same-sex marriage is in direct opposition to their church’s teaching.

    Bingo. Someone else said it was “tone deaf” and I said it wasn’t. It was precisely meant to send a message: these are American Catholics (Pelosi, Biden) and Catholics who follow the teachings of the Church will be marginalized.

    While the Eucharist is not a political tool, it would be nice to see those two denied communion on a world stage.

      Long time, no see, EQ!

    • I pop in and read, but don’t have a lot of time to comment. We moved, bought a house, got a different job, am having baby #3, my grandma passed away. Life is a lot of things, but not dull. That’s for sure.

      It’s good to know you’re still around, EQ.
      Congrats and condolences.
      You take good care.

      Biden had to pay a Catholic Church for his mother’s funeral. Nancy Pelosi got sick after meeting with Pope Paul spoiling her free vacation to Italy.
      Pelosi can’t blame her stomach illness from tainted communion bread, because she was not allowed to take communion for lack of repenting.

      There was little attention when Obama took family vacation to Italy and the Vatican in not bringing up his visit in which he slept on the streets and bathed with a fellow muslim in the morning before parting ways. Never gave a purpose or how he paid for such a trip, but perhaps it was visiting a Muslim Caliphate like the one they are building next to 9/11 memorial.

      specially when he had slept on the streets of Italy with a fellow Muslim as a young man he did the Islam bathing ritual with before parting ways and watching the man walk until he was too tiny to see anymore. Cut. End of take. Like in the movies. Boring, but why was this meeting so significant
      and where did the money to pay for that flight come from and what was the purpose. To visit the Muslim Caliphate
