“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of the American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel and the anti-Gospel. This confrontation lies within the plans of divine providence. It is a trial which the whole Church… must take up.” Karol Cardinal Wotyla (Sept. 1976)

Biden Gaffe: Commands a Man in Wheelchair to "Stand Up"

Joe Biden is getting more and more painful to watch. As reported and video taped on Wtop News:

"During a stop in Columbia, Mo., Biden was speaking before a large crowd when he decided to give special recognition to State Senator Chuck Graham.

"Chuck, stand up, let the people see you," Biden shouted.

However, Biden did not realize that Graham is confined to a wheelchair.

"Oh, God love you. What am I talking about? I'll tell you what, you're making everybody else stand up, old pal. I'll tell you what, everybody else stand up for Chuck. Stand up for Chuck!" Biden said."

And then today, Biden mentioned that Hillary Clinton would make a better vice-president choice than him, not considering what the fall out from this statement would be with all the flack Obama took for not picking her in the first place. As I alluded to, she is always in the background. I hope this isn't the start of the transition.
