faith,' bishop says: 'I'm not angry at
him, he's just stupid'

A Catholic bishop in Michigan weighed in on the discrepancy between President Biden's policies and his professed Catholic faith earlier this month, suggesting "forgiveness" for the president's "stupidity." Bishop Robert Gruss of the Diocese of Saginaw mentioned Biden during "Forgiveness as the Heart of Christianity," a lecture given on Apr. 5 at the Cathedral of Mary of the Assumption.

Bishop,while Joe is stupid, his motivation on turning his back on his religion is political. You cannot be a good Democrat and a good Catholic.

Biden is a cafeteria Catholic. He picks and chooses. Most Catholic politicians are like this. They want power and prestige and the way society is today, they can't get it unless they bow to the gods of gay and trans.

perhaps i could attribute misguided compassion in Biden's approach to gender etc - but what i find disturbing is him never speaking out on abortion which even Bill Maher calls 'murder' but he's okay with it. apparently so is Joe and after seeing how he treats granddaughter Navy - abominably, freezing her out due to Hunter's sins - it's hard not to call him out for his lack of Judaeo-Christian values. on this, he has a dark twisted soul. and then there are all the lies, my word, a never-ending river of them.

We should forgive Joe, not be angry at him. How about pity towards Joe, and concern for our country, does that get a pass?

I disagree with the Bishop. Anger directed against evil is not a sin. Make no mistake, support of abortion, child mutilation, Islamists, etc. is evil. Jesus did not sin when in his righteous anger he drove the moneylenders out of the temple. Calling Joe "stupid" is just an excuse and lets him off the hook for the evils he encourages.

1. I do pray Joe comes to a true understanding of the Christian faith, but unless/until that happens, I pray he, and his ilk, will be removed from power. I don't believe that is wrong. How many Psalms lamented evil by those in power? 2. He says Joe is not dumb in the "derogatory sense", but in that he doesn't understand the Catholuc faith. I beg to differ. This man has shown himself to be dumb, in the derogatory sense, for well over 50 years. He understands the Catholic faith about as well as he can understand anything, given his low IQ. Please don't try, dear bishop, to pretend this man is not stupid in the all around truest sense of the word.

The Bishop say Joe is Stupid, if he believes that Joe Biden is ignorant of the Catholic stance on abortion, the Bishop is the one who is stupid. Joe knows the rules. He deliberately ignores them for his political purposes. making excuses for Biden is BS. Joe needs to be excommunicated. not forgiven.

The Bishop is correct to say we should ask God to forgive our anger with Biden’s stupidity. But, it would nice if we told Biden he needs to ask God to forgive all of the lies, slander, and hatred he spews toward anyone that does not want to vote for him. It seems that if he stops doing this, fewer people would be angry with him.

#10, I do agree what Joe perfectly understands the church's stance on abortion, which is why he used to be opposed to it. The problem in this car is that while, again, Biden really is an idiot, he's also a hypocrite. He's Catholic only as far as he feels it's politically beneficial to him. That's true of everything about Joe - he's a cobbled together "story" of whatever works best in any situation. This is a narcissistic bast*rd with no moral compass. There is no line he is unwilling to cross if he feels he can gain adulation and power.

Biden and any other Catholic holding office know that abortion is wrong. It takes a life. What they say is that they cannot force their beliefs on their constituents. This is their EXCUSE for supporting abortion. They truly believe that this is what will justify their support. It's just good ole politics! It is said that the clintons did not believe in abortion until they got into politics. They changed their minds to get votes. Pelosi thinks the same way. As do many in congress.

Biden angers and embarrasses me every damned day. His insistent lying, his sick manifestations of pedophilia, his hatred of any of us who oppose his toxic policies, his demonic fascination taxpayer-funded abortion, his ignorance, and his obvious idiocy accumulate to little more than a withered husk, an empty and pathetic excuse for a Catholic man.

Two Republican lawmakers are trying to strengthen an existing Ohio law by requiring — instead of just allowing — school districts to create a policy letting students to be excused from school to go to released time religious instruction.

Former President Donald Trump said there is “probably a good chance” he will announce his vice presidential pick at the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee in July. Generally, presumptive nominees announce their running mate in the weeks or months leading up to the convention. “I don’t say anything is 100%, but you’re getting pretty close,” Trump said when asked by Scripps News political correspondent Charles Benson if he will wait until the high-profile event, which takes place July 15-18. Waiting until the convention to announce a running mate is rare, but it could provide a major splash during what has become a mostly predictable four-day event.

Footage has revealed how thieves in California are stealing copper-filled cables from Tesla charging stations. Viral video shared on TikTok by Joshua Beckler shows the aftermath of a recent theft at a Tesla Supercharger station in Vallejo, California. The nine stations are seen without any of the cables attached to them as Beckler shows the core of the heavy duty cable, which is clearly rich in copper, whose value has soared in recent years. The incident happened sometime over the weekend before it was reported to Vallejo police on Sunday morning.

Democrats have scored a major off-year election victory in Wisconsin, winning the state’s open supreme court seat and flipping control of the court to liberals for the first time in 15 years.

Four years ago, U.S. state, local, and federal goverments pushed “social-distancing” policies separating Americans six feet away from other people everywhere they went. Now former National Institute of Health (NIH) Director Francis Collins has admitted no “science or evidence” ever backed these heavy-handed, comprehensive restrictions — another key proof the left’s war on so-called “disinformation” is so dangerous. A memo National Review obtained, from the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic, details Collins’ closed-door testimony earlier this year. It reveals that Collins had not seen evidence on March 22, 2020, to support the widely obeyed federal policy when the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) instituted six-foot social distancing rules.

Joe Biden is as “sharp as ever,” a man blessed with “strong mental acuity,” and in possession of preternaturally incisive intellect.

Merrick Garland, one of the most nakedly partisan AGs in memory, has advised Biden to argue that the audio falls under executive privilege, which exists to allow a president to engage in candid and confidential conversations with his advisers

Earlier this month, the Biden administration floated a trial balloon, suggesting "senior officials across several federal U.S. agencies have discussed the practicality of different options to resettle Palestinians from Gaza who have immediate family members who are American citizens or permanent residents."No other Middle Eastern country is crazy enough to want large numbers of Gazans to enter their country. The history of Palestinians in Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria suggests that the refugees would look to overthrow the government or launch terrorist attacks against Israel from within their borders. This apparently isn't deterring Joe Biden. Perhaps it should. Pinhas Inbari, a veteran Arab affairs analyst,

This is not normal. The anti-Israel uprisings at colleges across the country have featured violence (from both sides), vandalism, unlawful occupations known as “encampments,” and many other acts that go well beyond free speech. And now, at the University of Michigan, this radical protest movement just crossed the line into dangerous new territory. This week, agitators reportedly showed up at the homes of University of Michigan Board of Regents members in the middle of the night, invading their private property. They chanted on their lawns and brought with them fake corpses, faux bloodied sheets, and lists of demands, including, bizarrely, completely unrelated desires such as “defunding the police.”

You can disagree without going crazy. And if Maher, an outspoken atheist and critic of organized religion, can shrug this off, so can everyone else.
