Evangelical Christians voting for Biden is as strange as a five-hundred-pound girl doing a backflip or an orangutan doing a tap dance. But then Evangelicals have been leaning left for decades since they made their break with biblical reliability. And a rule of life is, one always falls the way one leans. It seems they fell to the left and “can’t get up.”
In 1942, some heavyweights and many lightweight Christian leaders decided to cut their fundamentalist roots and identify as scholars, not pulpit banging “come-outers” who were “against everything.” They wanted to be recognized as religious scholars, responsible leaders, but not resolute separators. They did not want to identify with Biblicists, who refused to approve, associate, or align with non-believing church leaders.
These new Evangelicals could get along with anyone with a cheap cross around the neck and any Bible version in hand. They wanted everyone to know that they believed the Bible (but not excessively); after all, they were well-paid spokesmen (spokespersons) for its teaching. However, they wanted everyone to know that they were no longer identified with those Christians who were outspoken, clean living, independent, and even occasional Bible thumpers.
So the Evangelicals who are the most vocal, and visual, and even vile are the ones who hate President Trump and love Joe Biden.
The Pro-Life Evangelicals for Biden website reads like an anemic attempt to justify their support of Biden’s approval of abortion by suggesting racism, poverty, climate change, lack of health care, etc., also kills. Well, possibly, but not one and a half million a year and not as quick and definite.
Evangelicals for Biden website assures us, “Joe Biden is a man like any other, but his character and faith set him apart in times of crisis. That’s why Evangelical Christians across the country will be voting for him in November.”
At least, with crude, rude, and lewd Trump, innocent babies are safe within the womb; our soldiers are coming home from the endless wars in the Middle East; the promised wall is being built; age-old adversaries in the Middle East are making peace; the economy is bouncing back after dubious lockdowns; unemployment is quickly receding; and tremendous strides are being made with the judicial system except for those insane governors who release rapists and killers to rape and kill again.
And moronic religious leaders are asking thoughtful citizens to vote for Joe Biden since he is so “decent,” “honest,” and a “man of faith!” Are we discussing the Joe Biden I’ve known for decades?
The Joe Biden I know is a confirmed, confessed, and a calloused liar.
He started lying and cheating as early as his college days, and he has repeatedly been found to be a plagiarist that has followed him all his political life. Joe was kicked out of law school for taking five whole pages from another writer to use in a required essay. He said it was a mistake. How does a person, even a Democrat, use five pages from someone else and call it a “mistake.”
No, it was thievery.
This clip of Biden’s plagiarism is devastating. It should quickly destroy any candidate for dogcatcher. He has been caught with his pants down numerous times taking quotes from Bob and Jack Kennedy, Hubert Humphrey, and many others. Frankly, it’s pitiful.
Biden has claimed that he was the first of his family to go to college, but that was a lie he admitted in 1987. Many times, he said that he “graduated with three degrees from undergraduate school” and was the “outstanding student in the political science department.” He does not have three degrees and was not the outstanding student.
Joe has tried to present himself as a very active civil rights leader but without success. One of the most avid racists does a better job than I in exposing Biden. Shaun King wrote, “Biden told wild tales of how he marched, sat-in, and boycotted during the Civil Rights Movement and even went so far as to suggest that he had traveled to Selma and Birmingham with such actions, but with his campaign in tatters, he finally said they were all lies.”
That is an assessment of Joe from the far, far left.
King continues as he quotes Biden’s boast of being a civil rights worker, “Folks, when I started in public life, in the civil rights movement, we marched to change attitudes … I remember what galvanized me … Bull Connor and his dogs … I’m serious. In Selma.” Joe’s voice drops to an Hollywood whisper. “Absolutely. Made. My. Blood. Run. Cold. Remember?” King adds, “But Joe Biden had never seen such things with his own eyes. Turns out, Joe had been telling those lies for years.” He never marched. He never sat in. He lied about participating in sit-ins that did not happen for a least a year later.
Please remember Biden was debunked about his civil rights activities by a far-left activist.
Even The Hill reported that Joe’s assertion that during the Obama administration, they “didn’t lock people up in cages” was a lie. He also declared, “Immediately, the moment [the Iraq War] started, I came out against it.” He lied. He voted for the resolution to go to war in Iraq. And he said, “I was always labeled one of the most liberal members of Congress.” He lied all three times, as admitted by Politico.
Joe told the inspiring story of being arrested while in South Africa when he tried to visit Nelson Mandel in prison, but the incident did not happen.
In an interview on The Breakfast Club radio show, Joe declared, “The NAACP has endorsed me every time I’ve run.” Joe lied. The NAACP has never endorsed anyone at any time.
Joe told a whopper to a crowd at Dartmouth College that during his time as vice president, he traveled to Kunar Province in Afghanistan to award a combat medal to a courageous U.S. Navy captain who had rappelled 60 feet down a treacherous cliff to retrieve the body of a fallen comrade. As Joe was about to pin a silver star on the serviceman’s uniform, in Biden’s version, he stopped when the sailor told him he didn’t deserve it. “He said, ‘Sir, I don’t want the damn thing! Do not pin it on me, Sir! Please, Sir. Do not do that! He died. He died!’”
Biden added: “That is God’s truth, my word as a Biden.” But it was false. The Daily Mail reported that Biden’s story he “told a New Hampshire crowd last week was almost entirely fabricated, or a combination of unrelated memories.”
Joe has often repeated the lie, as have many, many unprincipled politicians, that Trump did not denounce rightwing extremists at Charlottesville. Trump said, “Racism is evil, and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.” When confronted by a reporter, Joe doubled down and lied again.
Joe declares that he warned us of the Chinese coronavirus in a January column published in USA Today; however, you guessed it, he lied again. Even the fact-checker for the Washington Post declared that he did not deal with the virus but attacked Trump and dealt with what Obama did during the Ebola outbreak in 2014.
He has repeatedly lied about his position on fracking. He can’t make all the coal miners and oil men angry this close to an election. So he flips and flops again and again on the same issue.
Biden says he does not support the Green New Deal, but his website says otherwise! His website says, “Biden believes the Green New Deal is a crucial framework for meeting the climate challenges we face.”
I could go and on about the liar that thoughtless Americans may put in the Oval Office, but I need to deal with his tendency to be creepy with women and girls. However, much of that is known, so I will move on to the accusation by Tara Reade, a Biden staff member. The Guardian reported that Tara said Biden “pushed her against a wall and assaulted her, penetrating her with his fingers” in a corridor in a Senate office building in 1993.
The New York Times reported that Tara told one of her friends at the time and two other friends. However, to be consistent, do we need corroboration of the charge since all women are to be believed when they make such charges? Tara also reported the assault to Senate officials without results, and she filed a complaint of Joe’s sexual harassment with the Senate personnel office. Nothing happened.
Where are all the feminists who are concerned about the mistreatment of women? Have all the hypocrites lost their voices or lost their ability to blush?
This brief expose of a candidate for President of the U.S.A. is embarrassing, and it is incredible that professing Christians would support such a man. But it is not surprising since Evangelicals lost or threw away their moral compass decades ago followed by pitching an available, accurate, and authoritative Bible.
Bigoted evangelicals have drunk the Kool-Aide mixed by Biden and what’s-her-name Harris. So sad to see religious leaders support a corrupt, cowardly, and concupiscent candidate.
