I wonder, does Vice President Biden attend similar ceremonies when other religious leaders are placed or elected as heads of their church? Does he acknowledge them? Is he even aware of any such events? I refer of course to any other religions that have such events. It is events like this that makes wonder how anyone can say we aren’t a Christian nation. Yes I am aware of the fact that Joe Biden is a Catholic, he was not attending as a Catholic, he was attending as the Vice President of the United States. Why do I have a problem with this? Because in him doing so he is stating that the United States supports the Catholic Church, and even more disturbing he is presenting our country as an ally to the Catholic Church. The Catholic Church is not an institution the United States should associate with let alone endorse. The have been charged with Crimes Against Humanity by the Italian President. They should have been tried and convicted centuries ago when they ‘exterminated’ the first Jew in the 3rd century. They should have been tried and convicted every time they exterminated another Jew in any of the several hundred years after that, and when the began the Crusades in the 12th century and again in the 13th and 14th century. They should have been tried and convicted when the slaughter countless numbers of Native Americans in the 14th and 15 and 16th and 17th centuries and then when they endorsed, blessed and publicly supported Hitler’s mass exterminations of millions of Jews and millions of non Jews. They should be brought up on charges when the first report of a child being molested was filed and then for every one of the thousands of children who have been brave enough to speak up after being molested ever since. How can our Vice President and our government smile in the face of the head of the Catholic Church? The history of the Catholic Church speaks volumes, one cannot say that was the Church of the past and that the current Pope shouldn’t be held responsible for the acts of former Popes. Why not? The Church has never been put on trial for any of its past crimes. The Church doesn’t take responsibility for any of the past atrocities. The world knows in detail the crimes committed and nothing is done. Supporting this new Pope is inexcusable and unacceptable.
I have to throw this point in here. Joe Biden, the author of the Violence Against Women Act, should be ashamed to support an institution that openly oppresses women and that throughout history has tortured, burned and degraded women with no apologies for it.
