TRUMP, BIDEN AND FAITH

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 10, 2020

            DURING A VISIT TO THE KEY STATE OF OHIO LAST WEEK, PRESIDENT TRUMP SAID JOE BIDEN IS “ANTI-GOD” AND HE WOULD “HURT THE BIBLE,” WHATEVER THAT MEANS.

         THE BIDEN CAMPAIGN RESPONDED THAT BIDEN’S CATHOLIC FAITH IS “AT THE CORE OF WHO HE IS.”

         NO ONE CAN, OR SHOULD, JUDGE THE FAITH OF OTHERS, BUT I THINK IT IS SAFE TO SAY WHAT SCRIPTURE SAYS: “BY YOUR FRUITS YOU SHALL KNOW THEM.” BIDEN IS FOR MANY THINGS THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IS AGAINST. FOR ONE, HE FAVORS NO RESTRICTIONS ON ABORTION AND HAS CHANGED A POSITION HE HELD FOR 40 YEARS AND NOW WANTS TAXPAYERS TO PAY FOR ABORTIONS FOR THOSE WHO CAN’T AFFORD THEM.

         SECOND, HE’S ALL-IN ON THE LGBTQ AGENDA. AND LISTEN TO HIS LANGUAGE. IT IS OFTEN VULGAR AND YES, SO IS PRESIDENT TRUMP’S, A MAN WHO RARELY ATTENDS CHURCH AND FROM HIS PUBLIC COMMENTS KNOWS ALMOST NOTHING ABOUT SCRIPTURE. IN AN INTERVIEW WITH ME MORE THAN THREE YEARS AGO TRUMP COULD NOT SAY WHO JESUS IS.

         BETTER STICK TO ISSUES AND NOT DEMEAN SOMEONE ELSE’S FAITH, OR CLAIM ONE IS A GOOD CATHOLIC WHEN YOU OPPOSE THE MOST IMPORTANT MORAL TEACHINGS OF YOUR CHURCH. STICK WITH THE ISSUES. THERE ARE ENOUGH OF THEM. I’M CAL THOMAS.
