Dave Griffey at his blog Daffey Thoughts comments on the fact that Veep and beloved National Clown Joe Biden has gone into the marrying biz:
According to this story, Bishops want clarification from Joe Biden after Biden – Catholic – officiated at a gay wedding. They act as shocked as Charley Owens at something that should be as predictable as bad reality TV. Why I don’t know. He’s a liberal Catholic who, like most religious liberals, follows the Left. Wherever the Left goes, the liberal believer will follow. That’s why nobody cares about the Religious Left. Not that Trump and the GOP haven’t exposed a glaring problem in the Religious Right and its ability to throw doctrine and morals under the bus to fit the latest political movement. It’s just that traditionally, Conservative believers held the line and demanded at least some fealty to their most cherished beliefs.
The religious left has no such feather in its cap. If the modern Left demanded sex with animals, you’d have religious liberals scouring the history books or religious texts to find something that would validate it or, in lieu of a worthwhile discovery, simply toss the history and the Scriptures in the file, declare them irrelevant, and move on. So what does the Left in general care about religious liberals? Whatever the Left demands, it gets.
So Biden officiating at a gay wedding shouldn’t be shocking. He is liberal. The Church is wrong and it’s high damn time the Church change and get with the times. Oh, maybe there was a time it was right, or it couldn’t help being wrong because of backward thinking. Some progressives are willing to invoke a sense of moral superiority over those wrong thinking types of yore. But whatever the reason, the teachings are declared wrong, and it shouldn’t be shocking that a liberal Catholic would, as usual, move forward and cleave unto the latest, hippest on this topic.
Go here to read the comments. Will Joe now become an equal opportunity perv? Inquiring minds want to know! As for the Bishops, what “clarification” are they seeking? I guess asking for clarification beats them actually having to do something about Biden, which might get them bad press which seems to be the only thing that these birds are concerned about.
Here is a quote from Biden back in 2008 when he was debating Palin:
BIDEN: No. Barack Obama nor I support redefining from a civil side what constitutes marriage. We do not support that. That is basically the decision to be able to be able to be left to faiths and people who practice their faiths the determination what you call it.
The alarming thing about the Left is how they can turn on a dime on fundamental issues, and then pretend that everyone who agrees with their old position is a hopeless bigot.
