Biden guy knows that "the little cracker" is called the Eucharist, or the communion, or the wafer... or whatever adult term he uses for it. Because he actually attended mass after his parents stopped making him.

Liberal religious beliefs don't count among conservatives because they tend to focus on what Jesus preached, not what some crazy-ass Old Testament fable says.

Typical GOP nonsense that they attack Biden as being part of some satanic cabal when he's so much more Christ-like and religious than their arguably satanic leader (Trump).

Biden reinforced DACA (fatherless and the widow) and tried to protect elderly and high risk with mask mandates (the least of these)...all in his first week.  That and more.

The WH was pretty close to church this week.

I am not a religious person.  And I generally don't much care what people do with their religion.  However...  Biden is an interesting case.  Because of how he keeps his religion.

They were reporting, before the inauguration, that when Biden is on the road, he will find a church, and sneak in, and sit in the back.  He politely listens to the sermon, and then he leaves.  He doesn't do this for a photo-op, or because he even wants anyone to know.  If anything, he wants to be left alone.  He does it for himself.  Because that is how he keeps his religion.

Possibly one of the single best examples of how a person SHOULD act with their religion.

This as opposed to (as the TFH points out), the way someone like 45** uses his religion.  In fact, I'm not even sure what kind of statement he was trying to make that day.  It wasn't his church.  It wasn't his Bible.  And by all accounts, the officials from the church were pissed off that he appropriated their assets for his photo-op.  Not to mention that he absolutely violated the civil rights of countless citizens - something that no one has been held accountable for (add it to the list.)

I'm not accusing you of this, but people really do have a bad habit of treating Catholics like they're some monolithic group.  There are seventy million Catholics in the US--nearly one quarter of the country.  There are very liberal Catholics and there are very conservative Catholics, and these two general populations basically want nothing to do with one another.

Just look at nuns--some of them get arrested protesting at our concentration camps, while others take cases to the Supreme Court to block women from seeking abortions.  Yet both groups are Catholics.

Trump doesn't have a church or a religion. He has never had the slightest interest in it, he faked it for political purposes and if he gives up political ambition he will never mention it again and only go there for weddings like most 'don't give a shiat, not really atheist because that is an intellectual position' types.

It would probably be a winning wager to bet that a vast majority of Catholics got really lucky and were born to Catholic parents.

Yeah well, unlike the church that Trump never attended the one Biden goes to could hardly be called one.

No rock bands, no pre-produced videos and only one ask for a donation, not one every ten minutes amongst the other ads for groups and committees you can buy your way into.

The baptism area is a font used for babies only, and only during special family only rituals.

Proper churches have a swimming pool and baptize people every service.

Hey, I grew up blended Lutheran and Jewish, spent a lot of time with the Methodist Church based Boy Scout Troop kids who were my friends. To make my marriage peaceful so I converted to Catholicism (Mother-in-Law).

I believe in none, but I respect members of those religions because they don't preach hate for money.

If Biden os a believer it doesn't bother me. He also has something like three or more German Shepherds, that's more dog than I could imagine.

He appears to be a good man. People who attack him aren't.

He will never win with them. My daughter sent me this today. I had heard about the scandals but never really saw the petty children in action. Keep an ear out for Reagan.

Obama looked exactly what they said he looked like - a kid playing with a toy and enjoying himself with the selfie stick. The video is worth the watch just for that segment.

Which makes me wonder about him being able to be blind to religions' follies, yet doing the correct (morally and logically) thing at every step. To my logical self, that is incongruent. Yet he exists and he is more good than bad. Compromise indeed.

Saw my father yesterday for the first time since the inauguration.  He's a lifetime Catholic.  I'm talking Knights of Columbus, Eucharist minister Catholic.  Anyway, I said "Well you must be happy to have another Catholic in the White House!"  The replies from him and my stepmother were "That snake!"  And "He's no Catholic!!"

And yes, they are big Limbaugh - Fox News - OANN fans.  I knew what their reaction would be, but I just had to poke the bear.
