May 2021 – Three days after his inauguration, the ultra liberal New York Times suggested that as a lifelong Catholic, President Joe Biden might be the “most religiously observant” U.S. president in 50 years. But the article admitted Biden’s administration will depict “a different, more liberal Christianity.” Referencing Jesus’ teachings, the article said that nations are judged by their treatment of “the least of these” including the hungry, the sick, and the immigrant. Biden was praised for concentrating on these issues.
Ironically, many Christian leaders found it troubling that the president advocates for wholesale abortion of pre-born babies, the most vulnerable of “the least of these.”
In a recent column, Father Jerry Pokorsky, a Virginia Catholic priest in the Diocese of Arlington, adamantly disputed Biden’s depiction as a devout Catholic.
“Indeed, Biden is the most aggressively anti-Catholic president in history,” wrote Pokorsky. “[He] has magnified and institutionalized countless major violations of the Ten Commandments. The hypocrisy rivals that of the chief priests and Pharisees.”
