Joe Biden Claims to be a Common Sense Catholic: so where is the sense?

Official portrait of Vice President of the Uni...

Biden’s Catholicism is an “abortion” of orthodoxy (excuse the pun). I would like to start by making some observations that seem to me to be common sense rather than political or theological. Though common sense has become scarce in our day as Jess on All Around the Watchtower reminded me; she quipped that we should probably start calling it uncommon sense.

1st: I think that we would all agree that murder is wrong. Good.

2nd: If a political candidate advocated killing some of its citizens (not to mention the 60 million already murdered), few would support them – though there is always a small minority that would let nothing stand in the way of their agenda or ideology. You with me so far?

3rd: In order to be able to pass a law that would allow its citizenry to be killed, we would necessarily have to make sure that it is not classified as murder. Does this make sense?

4th: To classify a baby in the womb as a non-living form is absolutely necessary in order to justify a government getting involved with the issue. It is what they want us to believe, is it not?

5th: Who then should we trust with the expertise to examine this issue and proclaim when life begins? The mother, the government, science, philosophy or theology? Who is best qualified?

6th: Most who hold pro-abortion views have accepted the input of those in government, science and philosophy to declare that the fetus of a growing child is not yet a human being. Yet it is strange that people have been sentenced to jail for murder if they killed the infant in a mother’s womb without her consent. Strange that? Sounds like the mother gets to play God if she wants.

7th: Being a moral issue, would it not make sense that this should be decided by moral theologians within the church? Who else can make the call? Why should I believe any of them if they have no moral footing?

Therefore, when the Church, in my case Catholic, says that abortion is an intrinsic evil and that it is the murder of a child, then I can not for any circumstance stand with those who would willfully supply or allow for the killing of these citizens no matter what their party affiliation or ideology is.

Then there are those who say that one needs to look at all the social justice issues before deciding on whom to vote. Well then, you are saying that in simple math, the following are equal:

Government Care for the “Poor”* = Murder of 60 million children since 1978

* You may substitute whatever floats your boat for the word “poor” in the above equation. You may even add them all together and it will still not equal the life of 1 innocent child who is murdered in his or her mother’s womb.

Now, can Joe Biden in all seriousness, say that he agrees with the Church in his personal life but does not want to force his opinion on anyone else? If he truly believed it was the murder of a child, he would die for the cause and he could never work for or support a politician or a constituency that advocated the killing of children. So what is it Joe? Are these babies that are being killed or just a clump of cells? What do you really believe in Joe?

  1. OT. Least We Forget: Servus, I hope you watched the video I sent you about the Holocaust, it is a previously unseen video produced by the British.

    I remember my parents urging me to go to see the display of the horrors of the Concentration Camps. I remember the display of human skin lampshades and human soap by the Beast of Buchenwald…Ilse Koch.

    • I remember the horrors as well. Is this just the opening gambit to usher in euthanasia and other atrocities reminiscent of the holocaust? People are getting comfortable with the idea of killing babies now and it follows that they are likely to excuse the inexcusable – whatever the next move brings.

  2. “If a political candidate advocated killing some of its citizens (not to mention the 60 million already murdered), few would support them – though there is always a small minority that would let nothing stand in the way of their agenda or ideology. You with me so far?”

    That is the clincher. Is it really a matter of common sense? I believe it is as far as the voter is concerned. But regarding the politician, I believe it is a matter of dishonesty. I would prefer to give them the benefit of the doubt, but it is not as if they do not know the what the Church teaches and what the truth of the matter really is as far as abortion goes. If they don’t know, then they should. They have an obligation to know.

    No, this is not about common sense (or lack thereof) in Biden’s case. It is about his party’s agenda and maintaining control of government, because they know they will always have the support of the pro-abortion lobby as long as the uphold this stance. They show no scruples about lying or manipulating the tenets of their religion to justify their position.

    The ones who need to use their common sense are the voters: would you vote for a man who stands by a party’s agenda, which sanctions the killing of the innocent human beings?

    • Well let’s call it a lack of integrity. Last night he said he believed the de fide teachings of the Catholic Church and then said that he would not impose these beliefs on others. But the teaching is that it is murder, not just some inconsequential matter to be swept under the rug. Common sense aside, he and the rest of the pro-abortion “so-called Catholics” have a lot of explaining to do.

  3. Joe Biden here: And I also believe Planned Parenthood is a great organization, doing great work. And the American people don’t get the chance to decide how much to contribute to that great organization because they may not choose to contribute enough. So, I will decide how much the American people will contribute so we can promote personal responsibility of all women to decide to kill their babies, uh, I mean discard their unwanted cells. And oh, by the way, this blog is racist. I don’t yet know how, but I’m sure it is, and this blog is also being watched by our great public servants at Justice Dept., State Dept., and Homeland Security. We will all be meeting in the near future to decide how this blog is racist, I know it is, I just know it. Anyone who believes that all of the millions of worthwhile causes any liberal proposes should not be funded at 100% with an annual increase of 25% for the next 100 years, has to be racist. It has to be, I just know it. And by the way, your blog is all malarkey!

    • And this coming from one who is intimately familiar with malarkey. In fact, we might call you the king of malarkey. I can’t discount your expertise in that venue.

  4. That is such a well-expressed post my dear friend. First redefine babies as not human, then it is OK to kill them – that wickedness is at the heart of this. It is a stain on our society that will, one day, be as incomprehensible to our descendants as defending slavery is to us.
