The Danger of Joe Biden’s Empty Catholicism


LifeSite News: Joe Biden is a man of many epithets. There is Joe Biden of Scranton, the blue-collar guy who understands the plight of the working class. There is Joe Biden the Sufferer, whose life story has granted him supreme empathy for every person on the face of the earth. But perhaps no title figures more prominently in the Biden mythology, or has proven more useful, than that of Joe Biden the Devout Catholic.

That title has been especially ubiquitous since his ascendance to the presidency just weeks ago. Following Biden’s inauguration, paeans to his Catholicism were numerous throughout the media. “Joe Biden has been back in Washington for six days, and already he has attended Catholic Mass twice,” gushed the BBC. “Religious leaders welcome Joe Biden’s election as 2nd Catholic to win presidency” ran the ABC News headline. The New York Times feted him as “perhaps the most religiously observant commander in chief in a half-century.”

Meanwhile, during the first White House press conference, a reporter from EWTN asked for clarification regarding Biden’s shifting position on taxpayer funding of abortion. In typical style, Press Secretary Jen Psaki sidestepped the question by instead offering the journalists a quick refresher on the Biden lore: “I will just take the opportunity to remind all of you,” she said, “that [Joe Biden] is a devout Catholic and somebody who attends church regularly.” Next question.

Opinion: There is a new religion in the works. It is not really Catholic, not really liberal Protestant, but has characteristics of both.

The new religion has already called for social justice, joining UN Agenda 2030, blessing homosexual unions, open borders (except for the Vatican state), abortion-tainted vaccines, approval of women in liturgical roles, unity with leftist Protestant doctrines, embracing the Palestinian Authority,  status quo in Jerusalem, and unity with Islam to name a few.

The new religion was prophesied by Jesus …

“I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. 16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.” Revelation 3:15-16

The new religion will give the people what they want, Laodicea, Greek for “the people rule” …

“Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked”— Rev. 13:17

The new religion will have a religious leader …

“Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon.” Revelation 13:11-12

He is Pontifex Maximus and is second in command to the Antichrist.
