An op-ed in the Washington Post roasted Joe Biden on Thursday over his unequivocal support for limitless abortion.

The piece by Princeton University Professor of Jurisprudence, Robert P. George, he railed against the 46th Commander-in-Chief for his abortion support. 

He wrote, “Abortion is, in the church’s view, not just immoral in the way it is to take the Lord’s name in vain or to commit adultery. It is not in itself a matter of sexual ethics. It is a grave injustice in the same way it is to perform any act designed to kill an innocent human being. Laws allowing it, or treating it as a right, are gravely unjust, too, in the same way that it would be unjust for laws to allow the deliberate killing of any other innocent human beings, especially on a mass scale. Pope Francis has for this reason appealed to ‘all politicians, regardless of their faith convictions, to treat the defense of the lives of those who are about to be born and enter into society as the cornerstone of the common good.’” 

Here’s another snippet:

Biden, however observant he may be in other respects, does not accept the church’s teaching on this subject. He flagrantly rejects it. He may sincerely wish that nobody would ever procure or perform an abortion, and in that sense be “personally opposed” to it. He nonetheless favors excluding a particular class of human beings from the same protection against homicide that he favors for everyone else. He speaks in favor of that injustice, and he works to further it.

 

Nothing in the church’s teaching on abortion implies that it is the only issue that ought to concern Catholic citizens and officials. Nor does it preclude working with the Biden administration on initiatives that seem likely to promote the general welfare, or commending it when deserved. We are, however, obligated to tell the truth about abortion and what the church actually teaches about it: to tell it to our fellow Catholics, and to everyone else. We owe it to the unborn. We owe it to our fellow citizens of a nation committed to “justice for all.” And we owe it, as well, to President Biden himself, who on this issue is guilty of profound injustice.

BIDEN IS NOT A TRUE CATHOLIC, IF HE SUPPORTS ABORTION HE WILL NEVER BE A TRUE CATHOLIC… HE IS A DISGRACE TO THE CATHOLIC CHURCH

Biden and his followers want to eliminate the death penalty for those who have committed crimes against humanity but yet he condones the killing of innocent children, they call that being a hypocrite in the most vile way.

Thank you Washington Post for allowing this to be distributed. It is a reasonable discussion of a highly emotional subject. I dream of a day when we can calmly discuss our differences and allow each other to respectfully voice their position.
God forgives sins if we repent. Repentance is not just words. Actions or lack of action is what matters.
