Joe Biden, like Speaker Nancy Pelosi, believes he lives his life in alignment with the Roman Catholic Church:
"My views are totally consistent with Catholic social doctrine," Biden said in a 2007 interview with the Christian Science Monitor. "There are elements within the church who say that if you are at odds with any of the teachings of the church, you are at odds with the church. I think the church is bigger than that."
He is "consistent with the Church’s social doctrine". You know… beliefs like feeding the poor, clothing the naked, giving alms to relieve suffering in the world… stuff that we devout Catholics never do.
"Consistent with the Church’s social doctrine." Like being against any and all violence. He’s a pacifist. Yes, a pacifist, I understand.
Biden made that clear in 2005 when, quoted in the Cincinnati Enquirer, he said:
"The next Republican that tells me I'm not religious, I'm going to shove my rosary beads down their throat."
