In the recent past the Delaware State News trumpeted, "Biden Brings Solid Catholic Faith to the Presidency." The article stated how President Biden will work with Pope Francis on caring for the marginalized, address climate change, and welcome immigrants into our communities. It is an opportunity to promote the diversity of Catholic social teaching rather than seeing it through the preeminent singular lens of abortion.
All this talk of helping the marginalized is just empty rhetoric. Who are more marginalized than the innocents slaughtered?
As a Catholic, if the right to life starting at conception, a here and now issue -- the ending of millions of lives -- is not considered preeminent but merely an instance of "Catholic social teaching" subordinated to the above three quality of life issues, then the murder of over 60 million babies, and support and government funding of Planned Parenthood and abortion, up to and including birth, as Biden and Harris will allow, makes a mockery of the Catholic faith.
