For President Joe Biden, talking to the press is something to be avoided. He’s not particularly known for his answering questions with accuracy or intelligence, and you never know when he’ll get angry over a simple question.
Oftentimes, Biden is given instructions on when he can and can’t talk to the press, but every now and then a handler needs to take control and lead him away. In a recent interview session with the press, it was Biden’s wife Jill who had to do the leading away.
In a recent video, Biden is taking questions from the press when he’s suddenly confronted by one reporter about how he squares his Catholic beliefs with his pro-abortion stances.
“As a Catholic, why do you support abortion, as a Catholic, defying church teachings?” the reporter asks.
Jill Biden, who’s seen waiting in the background, suddenly approaches Joe and attempts to lead him away as he begins to stumble for an answer.
“I don’t want to get in a debate with you on theology, but you know, well anyway, I’m not going to make a judgment for other people,” Biden said.
“But you’re Catholic,” the reporter repeated.
Biden didn’t answer the question, instead allowing other reporters to drown him out.

Biden supposedly holds his Catholicism as very important but, like many supposed Catholic Democrats, seems to outright dismiss and ignore the church’s stance on abortion being murder. As Fox News noted, the Pope had declared it murder himself, yet Biden was not challenged by the Pope on his abortion stance.
Jill Biden was unsuccessful in leading her husband away, but Biden’s practice at dodging this question served him well enough to escape having to answer it once more.
If actions do speak louder than words, then it’s clear that Biden’s Catholicism is merely a prop to convince religious voters that voting for him is the safer option. His attachments to the teachings of Christ are tenuous at best, and he very rarely gives religious voters anything to approve of with any substance.
Interestingly, it would appear that there are certain questions Biden’s handlers have been instructed not to let him answer. Apparently, questions around his adherence to Catholic beliefs are one of them.
