The Bishops Bail Out Biden

Original Article

Posted By: MissMolly, 9/13/2020 4:11:15 AM

Were the Republicans to run a Catholic for president who supported, say, segregation, the bishops wouldn’t hesitate to condemn that figure and warn their congregations not to vote for him. But the bishops apply no such condemnation or warning to Joe Biden, who is a dissenter in favor of abortion rights and gay marriage. Even Biden’s officiating at gay marriages, an egregiously disobedient act for a Catholic, is met with silence from most bishops. While Pope Francis felt no reservations about condemning Trump’s faith — he called him “not Christian” for supporting border walls — he and his like-minded bishops refuse to question Biden’s

The hierarchy of the Catholic Church has had an unholy alliance with supposedly Catholic Democrat politicians for a long time. They continue to ignore the fact that these Democrats fully endorse abortion, which is completely condemned by the teachings of the Catholic faith. Democrats like Pelosi, the Kennedys, and numerous others should be denied communion if not excommunicated. And frankly, one cannot be a true Catholic and a Democrat at the same time. It's a pretense of convenience.

The Greatest Commandments "Love God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind" and "Love your neighbor as yourself" are given to us in addition to the Ten Commandments. As Christians, our task at hand is not to give into temptation and live in God's ways not the earthly ways. The Democrat's stance on abortion should be despicable to the Catholic church because it violates the Greatest Commandments. When a baby is aborted, we are not loving our neighbor as ourselves and we are not loving God. After all, a baby is a gift and blessing from God.

Just amazing. These people seem to be totally unaware that Catholics see what is happening. The leftists believe that if they say "vote for Biden" that all Catholics will just ignore what is right in front of their faces, and follow the orders. They won't.

This Pope has created a schism in the Church that may never repair itself. This Pope is no Protector of the Faith or of the Innocent. Shame on him. However there are still Bishops willing to stand for what is right, But until this pretender is removed the Church Herself is threatened.

Real Catholics will eventually do to the Vatican and their false representatives what football fans have done to the NFL. Not that football is as important as being a good Christian of course but the principle is the same, when your leadership fails you, cut them off and move on to what you know is right. There is no express elevator to God.

I have always found it most odd that dyed in the wool dims and some Catholic leaders can be Catholic and be pro choice at the same time. Or they simply don't regard life at conception as a moral issue. Perhaps it is ignorance on my part. Having been confirmed in the Lutheran Church at age 13 instilled different values in my upbringing although the church has bad apples of its own now.

FTA...“He devoutly practices his Catholic faith in the quiet manner that was imbued in him by his Irish Catholic family and the sisters and priests who helped form who he is today.” Now you'd think the moron that made that statement would stop and think for a moment, who Biden is today. He is a proven plagiarist. He has lied throughout his career. Lately, he lied about his position on fracking, on criminal justice "reform," and on 9/11 his lie the HE predicted the attack on the World Trade Center with planes was resurrected. He has a very credible accusation against him from a staffer, reported to a number of people at the time it happened, of how this choir boy penetrated her with his fingers, against her will. And of course his very public support for infanticide. The Catholic Church, the Pope included, is embarrassed by parishioners who are pro-life and patriotic. They are embarrassed by their parishioners who voted and support President Trump. Trump is the most pro-life president this country has ever had, yet the Bishops sneer at him and his followers. And we know they are sneering at us. While we attend Church every Sunday and are Eucharistic Ministers, we have not supported the overall Church for years. We do not give to all of those organizations that the bishops and church beg for donations. And while our local priest is wonderful and conservative (which he keeps well hidden) it becomes harder and harder to support this Church. Evil is always at work, but its invasion of the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church,is illustrated very well by the pedophilia scandals that pervade this institution as well as the hierarchy's lack of concern for the killing of the unborn.

Throughout its' 2,000 year history the Roman Catholic church has suffered some hard times. Splits with the Greeks, the Russians, the Reformation, etc. It could be easily argued that many popes and bishops/cardinals were pretty bad --- not just incompetent but morally astray as well. Dante even threw a few into Hades. Yet, we have survived. Mainly because, as it was written, "This is My Church and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it." This is just another very rocky patch we're suffering through & it will be corrected in all due time. In fact, it looks like the worm is turning already as more and more people see abortion as the horror it is and, with only one or two heartbeats stopping cold, the Supreme Court could change and thus Roe v. Wade ends. Right now the R.C. Church is nothing more than the Peace Corps with robes on but, remember, His Father's House was cleaned out more than once and will no doubt be again. Meantime, stay faithful to the Leader ... and not so much the administrators! Living through 50+ years of nonsense is tough but those 5 decades are a twinkle in history. Sooner or later, everything aligns with what God wants.

#5 might do well to check out the ten. Because the first of the two is the first of the ten, as well (just without the part about leading Israel out of Egypt). And the second of the two was actually one of those given by Moses, too -- around number 26 if I recall correctly. As for Biden and the bishops who endorse him? Clearly contrary to Church teaching. Neither party's platform does a very good job of following Christian teaching, though. Both deviate from it in different ways, and it seems to me neither should get official endorsement by the Church.

#19 - Thank you for the wonderful response to Catholics who leave the Faith because weak, and often sinful, men sit in the hierarchy. The Eucharist is the center and summit of our Faith. Jesus Christ is physically present with us! It matters not if some in the clergy are corrupt, for Judas lives in every age. #22 - Thank you for saving me a lot of typing. It does amaze me that people think because we live in "modern" times corruption inside the Church should be a thing of the past. While instituted by God, the Church is still run by fallible human beings. There is a reason some of our greatest saints were reformers. My favorite priest would often say, "The proof of the Truth of the Catholic Church is found in the fact that it has been passed on through the centuries by the laity, despite the clergy."

When you realize that virtually every institution in America has now been intentionally corrupted by the Cultural Marxists with the blessings of Democrats, the Bishops who knew for a long time that priests were abusing children but did nothing, are now STILL “qualified” to make a judgment on Biden should not come as a surprise to the cynically astute Remember Daniel Moynihan’s warning about “defining deviancy downward.”

Seven people, all from different households, not only gathered for Thanksgiving but distributed to the media pictorial evidence of them flouting mask mandates and social distancing edicts. No governor yet claims jurisdiction over the International Space Station but the astronauts have a lot of explaining to do when they return to earth. It’s not as though they lacked for space.

Will Joe Biden and his foreign-policy team accept the extraordinary gift Team Trump is leaving for them under the Christmas tree — or is their hatred for the president so all-consuming that they will toss it in the garbage? I’m talking about the Abraham Accords, peace deals between Israel and various Arab states — the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan — that have sought the Jewish state’s destruction since its founding in 1948. Normalization has proceeded so quickly, Dubai already has a kosher restaurant, and its supermarkets are stocking Israeli agricultural products festooned with Stars of David — a science-fictional sight only a year ago.

The practice of democracy in our constitutional republic flourishes in the presence of contradictions. Democracy, itself, is bound by our inalienable rights, bestowed to us by our Creator. These rights, not given to us by our government by any majority or by any vote, cannot be rescinded, for they were not wrought by man. Voting is a contradiction for it is both public and private at the same time. Its process is intended to be secret, but transparent. Its agency is intensely partisan, but its effect is intended to be unifying. The legitimacy of voting must survive despite the contradictions intrinsic to the process.

Will Judge Emmett Sullivan accept President Trump’s pardon of General Michael Flynn? No one has suggested that possibility, other than The New York Sun. The general’s case, though, has become a bonfire of the vanities of one district judge who has denied the presumption of regularity to an official act of the United States government — meaning Attorney General William Barr’s attempt to drop the case. So why would Judge Sullivan credit President Trump’s workaround of a pardon? We understand, the pardon could be the least fettered of all the powers that the Constitution grants to the president.

I have chuckled at some of their overheated parting rhetoric — especially the widespread misunderstanding about the meaning of the word “monopoly.” A monopoly is, as the Oxford dictionary explains, “the exclusive possession or control of the supply of or trade in a commodity or service.” Quite obviously, if one stops doing business with a company and heads over to its competitor, then the previous company is not by definition in exclusive possession or control of a service.

The race gap between the two has come down to the point where Tenney is leading by 106 votes and the only ballots left to possibly be considered are the ones that were “set aside” during the initial count due to irregularities.
