Today is the 48th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s horrendous Roe v. Wade decision that, for the first time in the history of our nation, permitted a child to be killed up to the point of birth…a point that we’ve seen expanded in Virginia (VA Governor Ralph Northam Uses Word Salad To Explain His Defense Of Infanticide) and some other abortion friendly states to include killing the baby if the mother changes her mind during birth.
This is a day of national shame and mourning for the tens of millions of slaughtered innocents sacrificed on the altar of inconvenience.
In Corn Pop’s White House, though, the mood was celebratory and triumphalist:
In the past four years, reproductive health, including the right to choose, has been under relentless and extreme attack. We are deeply committed to making sure everyone has access to care – including reproductive health care – regardless of income, race, zip code, health insurance status, or immigration status.
The Biden-Harris Administration is committed to codifying Roe v. Wade and appointing judges that respect foundational precedents like Roe. We are also committed to ensuring that we work to eliminate maternal and infant health disparities, increase access to contraception, and support families economically so that all parents can raise their families with dignity. This commitment extends to our critical work on health outcomes around the world.
As the Biden-Harris Administration begins in this critical moment, now is the time to rededicate ourselves to ensuring that all individuals have access to the health care they need.
The left has repeatedly trotted out the blatant lie about Joe Biden being a “devout” Catholic. See Democrats Can’t Sell Biden’s “Devout” Catholicism With Words.
Jen Psaki spins out of Hyde Amdt. & Mexico City question by saying Pres. Biden is a "devout Catholic".

In fact, they even use that construction to try to hide his full-throated support of abortion on demand. SeeJen Psaki Completely Flubs Answer to Question on Biden’s Abortion Policy.
Joe Biden is technically a Catholic because he was baptized into the Church. Beyond that accident of history, there is no possible measure that would indicate that Joe Biden is Catholic. Biden has long been a hardcore fan of infanticide, the support of which brings with it automatic ex-communication Latae sententiae:
Formal cooperation in an abortion constitutes a grave offense. The Church attaches the canonical penalty of excommunication to this crime against human life. “A person who procures a completed abortion incurs excommunication latae sententiae,”77 “by the very commission of the offense,”78 and subject to the conditions provided by Canon Law.79 The Church does not thereby intend to restrict the scope of mercy. Rather, she makes clear the gravity of the crime committed, the irreparable harm done to the innocent who is put to death, as well as to the parents and the whole of society.
Likewise, Biden has officiated at a homosexual wedding. This is something that is far outside the bounds of being an observant, much less “devout,” Catholic. Marriage is reserved for a union of a man and a woman. The Church does not recognize civil ceremonies, so, best casing it, Biden was creating an adulterous relationship. Add to that the fact that homosexual acts, according to the Catechism, are impermissible:
Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that ‘homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered’. They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved.
By his public action and the slavish, pornographic coverage of Biden’s fake Catholicism.
"Biden could redefine what it means to be ‘a Catholic in good standing,’" meaning more focus on "Catholic teachings on poverty, refugees and the environment" than on those doctrines used by some to fight LGBT rights and reproductive freedom. https://t.co/kIYQle8cTr pic.twitter.com/EaP9ECWqHi

This creates the sin of Scandal.
2284 Scandal is an attitude or behavior which leads another to do evil. the person who gives scandal becomes his neighbor’s tempter. He damages virtue and integrity; he may even draw his brother into spiritual death. Scandal is a grave offense if by deed or omission another is deliberately led into a grave offense.
2285 Scandal takes on a particular gravity by reason of the authority of those who cause it or the weakness of those who are scandalized. It prompted our Lord to utter this curse: “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened round his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.”85 Scandal is grave when given by those who by nature or office are obliged to teach and educate others. Jesus reproaches the scribes and Pharisees on this account: he likens them to wolves in sheep’s clothing.86
2286 Scandal can be provoked by laws or institutions, by fashion or opinion.
Biden pimping transgenderism, openly endorsing homosexual marriage and claiming that abortion is a legitimate therapeutic procedure all the while claiming to be Catholic certainly has the ability to lead some people to believe that he is correct.
The best you can say is that Biden is a very secular individual who apes an affiliation with the Catholic Church. If he believes at all, it is not evident in anything he has done in his entire life. No degree of obeisance to the new Gods of Global Warming and Unfettered Immigration and Mainstreaming of Sexual Deviants can overcome opposition to hard and fast rules that were integral parts of Judaism and passed on to Christianity by the Word Incarnate.
