Biden is a Faithful Catholic? Hilarious!

I have long praised our Veep, and Beloved National Clown, for his efforts to keep up our national morale during these dismal economic times by endless gaffes and verbal pratfalls.  Now he has outdone himself!

In the above video the completely pro-abort Biden tries to portray himself, get this, as a faithful Catholic!  Howlingly funny.  I  am sure Joe of course understands full well that a man with his voting record is as far from a faithful Catholic as it is possible for a politician to be.  I am certain he is aware of this section of a letter written by Cardinal Ratzinger:

1. Presenting oneself to receive Holy Communion should be a conscious decision,  based on a reasoned judgment regarding one’s worthiness to do so, according to  the Church’s objective criteria, asking such questions as: “Am I in full  communion with the Catholic Church? Am I guilty of grave sin? Have I incurred a  penalty (e.g. excommunication, interdict) that forbids me to receive Holy  Communion? Have I prepared myself by fasting for at least an hour?” The practice  of indiscriminately presenting oneself to receive Holy Communion, merely as a  consequence of being present at Mass, is an abuse that must be corrected (cf.  Instruction “Redemptionis Sacramentum,” nos. 81, 83).
2. The Church teaches that abortion or euthanasia is a grave sin. The Encyclical  Letter Evangelium vitae, with reference to judicial decisions or civil laws that  authorize or promote abortion or euthanasia, states that there is a “grave and  clear obligation to oppose them by conscientious objection. [...] In the case of  an intrinsically unjust law, such as a law permitting abortion or euthanasia, it  is therefore never licit to obey it, or to ‘take part in a propaganda campaign  in favour of such a law or vote for it’” (no. 73). Christians have a “grave  obligation of conscience not to cooperate formally in practices which, even if  permitted by civil legislation, are contrary to God’s law. Indeed, from the  moral standpoint, it is never licit to cooperate formally in evil. [...] This  cooperation can never be justified either by invoking respect for the freedom of  others or by appealing to the fact that civil law permits it or requires it”  (no. 74).
3. Not all moral issues have the same moral weight as abortion and euthanasia.  For example, if a Catholic were to be at odds with the Holy Father on the  application of capital punishment or on the decision to wage war, he would not  for that reason be considered unworthy to present himself to receive Holy  Communion. While the Church exhorts civil authorities to seek peace, not war,  and to exercise discretion and mercy in imposing punishment on criminals, it may  still be permissible to take up arms to repel an aggressor or to have recourse  to capital punishment. There may be a legitimate diversity of opinion even among  Catholics about waging war and applying the death penalty, but not however with  regard to abortion and euthanasia.
4. Apart from an individual’s judgment about his worthiness to present himself  to receive the Holy Eucharist, the minister of Holy Communion may find himself  in the situation where he must refuse to distribute Holy Communion to someone,  such as in cases of a declared excommunication, a declared interdict, or an  obstinate persistence in manifest grave sin (cf. can. 915).
5. Regarding the grave sin of abortion or euthanasia, when a person’s formal  cooperation becomes manifest (understood, in the case of a Catholic politician,  as his consistently campaigning and voting for permissive abortion and  euthanasia laws), his Pastor should meet with him, instructing him about the  Church’s teaching, informing him that he is not to present himself for Holy  Communion until he brings to an end the objective situation of sin, and warning  him that he will otherwise be denied the Eucharist.
6. When “these precautionary measures have not had their effect or in which they  were not possible,” and the person in question, with obstinate persistence,  still presents himself to receive the Holy Eucharist, “the minister of Holy  Communion must refuse to distribute it” (cf. Pontifical Council for Legislative  Texts Declaration “Holy Communion and Divorced, Civilly Remarried Catholics”  [2002], nos. 3-4). This decision, properly speaking, is not a sanction or a  penalty. Nor is the minister of Holy Communion passing judgment on the person’s  subjective guilt, but rather is reacting to the person’s public unworthiness to  receive Holy Communion due to an objective situation of sin.

Some people might take this as a pathetic last-minute attempt to deceive faithful Catholics, but that is simply not the case.  With Hurricane Sandy bearing down on us, Biden is simply doing what he can to lighten the national mood by presenting a laughable video claiming that he is, snicker!, a faithful Catholic.  Bravo Joe, your service to the humor of Americans is noted and appreciated!

    That is a beautiful commercial, just beautiful. It really will be a new Camelot when Obama is elected. I want to go right out and join Catholics for Obama. But first I’m going to watch the other great commercial about voting for the first time. So inspiring. Maybe by Thursday, abortion day at the Planned Parenthood in Dover, DE, the storm will be over and I can say the rosary in front of the building where the government-funded operations are performed. Oh, wait a minute, are we talking about THAT President Obama?

    Catholic social doctrine?
    B_ _ _ S _ _ _!
    It is so difficult to view this.
    I love our Catholic faith.
    My folks were on the streets during the 70′, 80′ and 90′ standing with true Catholics doing their duty in their state in life, for the right to life. Their strong witness is a large part of my witness today in this fight with darkness. Joe blowfish is a pawn, a coward, and a blemish on the Holy Families name. When will this pretender be publicly corrected by Church authorities as being in error? I’ll send a financial contribution to help counter joe’s ad with a clear message from one of our prelates. I wish they would consider it. How many Catholics will buy Joes lie? How many will think it is okay to vote for the most vile anti-life president in history?
    I should laugh at this but I’m mad as hell.

    Oh, Philip, you sure gladden the heart of this old Catholic. Yes, as Donald says, the Devil cannot stand being mocked. His Pride cannot allow it. And Biden need not even be solemnly and formally excommunicated by the Vatican or be privately advised by his Ordinary to abstain from presenting himself for Holy Communion. He long ago, excommunicated himself from Mother Church, and he knows it. Each and every Holy Communion he receives, he piles up Sacrilegious and Cardinal Sins upon his already “dead” soul…..and you know what, listening to him on that Clip, he is fully aware he has sold his soul the Devil and couldn’t care less. When I see such people, I am impelled to really, really, pray very, very hard for them in this way:

    ” Oh Merciful Jesus, lover of souls, I beseech You by the agony of Your Most Sacred Heart and by the sorrows of Your most Immaculate Mother, wash clean in Your Blood the sinners of the whole world when they are in their final agony and especially those who are on their way to Eternal Damnation.”

    Biden and Company are fully aware that soon, when they stand before the Seat of Personal Judgement, God will have only these few words to say to them “”Thy Will be done”. I feel confident America will redeem herself and vote Obama out, two weeks from to-day

  • Joseph Valenti says:

    Mary:
    I was going to leave a comment until I read yours. Beautifully stated. No need to say more – except – Where are the bishops? Let’s pray for them, too. Are they not also complicit? How can they permit the continued sacrilege? How can they allow these “Catholic” politicians to mislead Catholics and others? I wish I could laugh. But here I am with tears in my eyes.

  • Jay Anderson says:

    “I feel confident America will redeem herself and vote Obama out, two weeks from to-day”

    If they wait 2 weeks to vote, I’m afraid they’ll be a little too late. Election Day is NEXT Tuesday – only ONE week from today.

  • Mary@42 says:

    Joseph, read the response of Jesus regarding the darnel and the wheat. “Let them grow up together. At the harvest time we shall uproot the darnel first…..”. Any faithful Catholic, Joseph, shall never be mislead by the Bidens and Pelosis of the U.S. of America.

    Your Bishops have spoken times without number. Even The Holy Father has congratulated their standing up for Holy Mother Church especially this time unflinchingly, but your secular Media shamelessly gives them a total back-out. But, hey, even Jesus was given a black-out by the Chief Priests and the Pharisees who bribed the Guards to say they were asleep when Christ’s Disciples stole His body from the Tomb. And you know, Joseph, for a Soldier to sleep on the job meant facing the Firing Squad. Even His Apostles had all, except young John, ran away from Him. And He did not take away their Authority to become the Founders of His Holy Church with the thrice denying Peter – the Holder of the Keys of Heaven (and his successors) – as the first Pope. And we know His Church born and entrusted to these scared Apostles is alive and kicking these 2,000+ God’s Will Shall Always Prevail.

  • Mary@42 says:

    You are right, Jay. I surely got the date of your Elections wrong. From this beloved land of your President’s filandering, drunken Father, we are praying Obama loses and his Cousin here, who was the cause of the death of over 1,300 innocent peasant farmers and poor small business people and the destruction of all they owned on this earth and displacement of over 60,000 now destitute people, who are still living in deplorable Internally Displaced People’s tattered tents will also lose in his pathological obsession to become our next President.

  • Why do Democrats invoke Jesus to justify their socialism as social justice, but when we invoke Jesus to protect the unborn and the sanctity of marriage, the Democrats accuse of trying to establish a theocracy and impose our morality on others? How then is Joe Biden not imposing his social justice morality on others?

  • Mary@42 says:

    Paul, because that is how Satan argues His case. Remember He was tempting Jesus by quoting the Scriptures. They will use anything and any argument, no matter how bizzare to justify their Culture of Death.

    Again, sorry, Jay, the displaced Kenyans are over 600,000 and not 60,000. Many of them are widows, orphans and nearly everyone of them lost a loved one, a friend, a relative or a neighbour. And when the new ICC Prosecutor showed her face here last week and visited the victims in their pathetic camps, the Displaced asked her who are Ocampo’s Witnesses who have taken the wrong people to ICC were because he never came to interview any of them, yet they are the victims. They told her they know who killed, raped, burned down their properties and chased them away from their homes and all they wanted to know who paid those attackers. The whole rallying Call of the murderous atrocities of the 2007/08 Post-Election Violence in Kenya was : you guessed it : “NO RAILA, NO PEACE”. And that is your President’s Cousin and he is walking free and determined to become our next President. We pray – HEAVEN FORBID
