USCCB Takes Biden To The Woodshed

And it's high time!  Among the many lies Biden spewed during last night's debate (when he wasn't grinning like a permanent resident in an insane house) was the line, "With regard to the assault on the Catholic Church, let me make it absolutely clear: No religious institution, Catholic or otherwise – including Catholic Social Services, Georgetown Hospital, Mercy, any hospital – none has to either refer contraception, none has to pay for contraception, none has to be a vehicle to get contraception in any insurance policy they provide. That is a fact."  Ryan at one point then asked why the Church was suing the administration.

In a press release issued today, the USCCB pretty much asked the same question.  They called his statement an "inaccurate statement of fact".  They are being diplomatic to a fault.  I'll call it as it is: a bald-faced lie.


  1. The bishops have taken him to the woodshed before. The bishop in his own home diocese of Scranton has announced that he will be refused communion there, an effective excommunication. Doesn't seem to bother him much. On the other hand, he is showing symptoms of early-stage dementia and has a history of brain surgery, so it's unclear how much control he has over his tongue and his thoughts.

    1. I hope the Bishop of Wilmington (his current bishop) is of the same mind. You're right; his degree of control is in question. And this is the man "one heart-beat from the presidency".

  2. I love the picture. Similar to a mental image I had after the debate, but it's more graphically ambitious than I was able to accomplish.

    There are many original blog articles being written about the abortion- and contraception-related statements that Vice President Biden made at the debate. One article I saw made a valid point that portions of Biden's statements are actually a good argument for repeal of Roe vs. Wade. You can check out her article here:
