The Democratic Party has moved much farther left on the issue of abortion in recent years. Many major leaders have even said pro-life Democrats are no longer welcome. Joe Biden, although claiming to be a devout Catholic, has embraced pro-choice and even abortion-on-demand. A Tennessee bishop was not willing to let the Democrat off the hook. He nailed him with a question that cuts to the core of the faith of millions. I doubt Joe has an answer.
As hard as it is to believe for us conservatives, there used to be pro-life Democrats. Plenty of Democrats in the South and red states (yes, they do exist) held to pro-life views for many years. Their candidates, then, were forced to embrace pro-life stances if they wanted to be elected. But, as we saw from the 2016 DNC convention, mainstream Democrats are much more interested in celebrating the taking of an unborn child than respect pro-life views.
During the primaries, Bernie Sanders essentially told pro-life Democrats they don’t belong in the party. That’s not a surprise from a self-proclaimed socialist who fanboys over the Soviet Union. In order for him to achieve his social engineering goals for America, he has to have abortion in place to control the population. But what about “moderate” Joe Biden? The man has talked about his Catholic faith for years. He once even claimed to be pro-life personally.
But Joe appears to be as pro-choice as Sanders, these days. His platform pushes abortion at any time for any reason. And he even said he’d make abortion the “law of the land” if the Supreme Court ever overturned Roe v. Wade. Seems like his Catholic faith stops short of protecting the unborn.
Now, a Tennessee bishop is hitting Joe with a powerful question, one he won’t be able to properly answer.
The redoubtable bishop of Knoxville (TN) has once again questioned the integrity of Joe Biden’s Catholic faith, given his public support for abortion on demand.
“A question for Mr. Biden. At your judgment before God, how will you explain changing your position about abortion and how will you explain promoting no limits and allowing all protections removed protecting the most innocent?” Bishop Rick Stika wrote on Twitter early Monday.
“Will you tell God you supported the ultimate child abuse because of the American Constitution?” Bishop Stika queried. “I wonder what God must have asked many leaders throughout the centuries? Government over human rights and the taking of innocent lives.” [Source: Breitbart]
The bishop also slammed another left-wing Catholic, Nancy Pelosi, who is just as eager to push abortion onto the country. His questions are pretty hard for any sincere Christian to ignore. If you do believe in the God of the Bible, then you believe you will stand before him one day. How will anyone who supported and promoted the taking of innocent lives defend themselves?
I doubt Joe Biden has a good answer for that. And he can’t turn to his campaign to write the answer for him—I doubt any of them are devout Christians! Chances are, he’ll ignore this question, proving to the bishop he has no answer. Or, he’ll do what many Democrats do and just deflect. Attack the bishop by claiming it’s not his “right” to question Joe Biden’s faith or something stupid like that.
But, once again, that’s not an answer. The Bible says you can’t serve two masters. And Joe Biden can’t both claim to be a devout Catholic and worship at the altar of Planned Parenthood. Abortion and the Bible are not compatible, no matter what the godless politicians on the left say.
While the bishop suggested the Constitution allows for abortion, we know that’s not true. The Founding Fathers would be appalled to know our country allows such a horrendous practice. And Bishop Stika knows that too. He is simply placing the authority of God above any man-made authority.
But Joe? He seems to care more about the party’s agenda than any kind of spiritual convictions.
