Biden is VP Pick: Can a Catholic Be Abortion Friendly?
Alert Readers will recall that Your Business Blogger(R) was raised in the traditions of the Catholic Church.
After some study on issues on the omniscience of the Creator and the authority of tradition equal to scripture I joined a religious tradition rooted in Calivinistic teachings.
I resolved my conflict, I didn’t have the political concerns that Biden has.
On the core issue of the Catholic Church’s teachings on Life I remain an enthusiastic supporter, even though not Catholic. The Catholic Church gets this right.
VP pick Joe Biden has real differences with his chosen religious tradition, the Catholic Church.
The Church supports the sanctity of LIfe.
Biden supports abortion
Daniel McConchie from Americans United for Life has these Biden quotes,
I strongly support Roe v. Wade. I wouldn’t have a specific question but I would make sure that the people I sent to be nominated for the Supreme Court shared my values; and understood that there is a right to privacy in the United States Constitution. That’s why I led the fight to defeat Bork, Roberts Alito, and Thomas.

Biden recognizes the disconnect between his faith and reason,
Well, I was 29 years old when I came to the US Senate, and I have learned a lot. Look, I’m a practicing Catholic, and it is the biggest dilemma for me in terms of comporting my religious and cultural views with my political responsibility.
There is a solution to the Senator’s dilemma,
Accept science and the teaching of his Church that life begins at conception, or,
Find a church compatible with this core issue, abortion — what Catholics call a Cardinal sin — and understand that Life Begins at Conception
Biden should address his inconsistency.
Many people who might attend church regularly complain that the churches are full of hypocrits.
Maybe this is what they are complaining about…
