Misquoting Scripture and Biden

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY FEBRUARY 5, 2024

    THE NATIONAL PRAYER BREAKFAST HAS BEEN A WASHINGTON INSTITUTION SINCE THE EISENHOWER YEARS. AFTER COVID AND FOLLOWING STORIES ABOUT SOME ATTENDEES SELLING THEIR TICKETS TO OTHERS WHO WANTED ACCESS TO MEMBERS OF CONGRESS, ORGANIZERS DECIDED TO HOLD THE EVENT ON CAPITOL HILL WITH MEMBERS-ONLY.

    LAST WEEK’S EVENT WAS HELD IN STATUARY HALL. PRESIDENT BIDEN SPOKE. AS USUAL HE SLURRED HIS WORDS AND CALLED THE PLACE “STATUTORY HALL.”

    HE ALSO MISQUOTED SCRIPTURE, MENTIONING PSALM 22, A PROPHETIC WRITING IN WHICH DAVID SEES THE FUTURE CRUCIFIXION OF JESUS. BIDEN REFERRED TO IT AS “EAGLES WINGS,” A DEVOTIONAL HYMN, NOT PSALM 22 AND HE COMBINED IT WITH THE END OF THE IRISH BLESSING POEM.

    HE ALSO PUNCTUATED HIS REMARKS BY SAYING “HELL” TWICE. AND HE QUOTED LINCOLN – ACCURATELY – WHO SAID. “WE ARE NOT ENEMIES, BUT FRIENDS.” BIDEN AND THE DEMOCRATS DON’T TREAT REPUBLICANS AS FRIENDS. BIDEN CALLS THEM NAMES.

    I USED TO BE INVOLVED IN THE PRAYER BREAKFAST, BUT IT DOESN’T RESULT IN CHANGED POLICIES SO TO ME, IT IS LITTLE MORE THAN A SHOWCASE FOR POLITICIANS WHO CLAIM TO BE “RELIGIOUS.” I’M CAL THOMAS.
