From Ignatius Insight:
"My views are totally consistent with Catholic social doctrine," says Biden, a six-term Democratic senator from Delaware."
Senator Biden is, of course, "pro-choice" on abortion. He says he accepts the church's teaching on when human life begins. Therefore, he thinks it's up to you whether or not you kill what he regards as a child. He does not tell us where in "Catholic social doctrine" he derives a justification for that position.
On Sunday we played a little "Nancy vs. Actual Expert" game on the question of whether anyone actually knows when human life begins. Now we'll do the same with would-be theologian Joe Biden.
Joe Biden: "My views are totally consistent with Catholic social doctrine."
Actual Expert (Francis Cardinal Arinze): "Do you really need a cardinal from the Vatican to answer that? Get the children for first Communion and say to them, 'Somebody votes for the killing of unborn babies, and says, I voted for that, I will vote for that every time.' And these babies are killed not one or two, but in millions, and that person says, 'I'm a practising Catholic', should that person receive Communion next Sunday? The children will answer that at the drop of a hat. You don't need a cardinal to answer that."
