As the American election looms and the candidates make their final pitch to voters, Joe Biden has been attempting to assure voters that he is, above all, a Christian. He penned an editorial for The Christian Post titled “The greatest commandment has guided my politics” laying out his beliefs: “These abiding principles – loving God and loving others – are at the very foundation of my faith.” And then he said this:
My Catholic faith drilled into me a core truth – that every person on earth is equal in rights and dignity, because we are all beloved children of God. We are all created “imago Dei” – beautifully, uniquely, in the image of God, with inherent worth. It is the same creed that is at the core of our American experiment and written into our founding documents – that we are all created equal and endowed by our creator with inalienable rights.
Of course, Joe Biden is also running on the most pro-abortion presidential platform ever constructed by a Democrat and has chosen as his running mate Kamala Harris, who used her powers as attorney general in California to target pro-life investigative journalist David Daleiden on behalf of her donors at Planned Parenthood. Children in the womb, in other words, may be created in “imago Dei”—but Biden is happy to allow 800,000 of them to be killed in an awful fashion every single year. And unlike previous Democratic presidents, he’s even announced that he’ll force the American taxpayer to fund the carnage.
