After President Trump claimed Joe Biden was “against God” during a speech to his supporters yesterday, the media pounced. Over and over again journalists on the big three networks and cable news insisted Biden was a “devout Catholic.”
This is the same media who feigned righteous anger at Trump standing in front of a church, yet demand you chuck the Bible out the window when it comes to Democrats’ antithetical beliefs on abortion and marriage.
Thursday night, self-proclaimed Catholic host Chris Cuomo opened his show by bashing Trump as a fake Christian before going on to defend Biden’s religiosity, with former Michigan governor and Hillary Clinton ally Jennifer Granholm (D).
Cuomo scoffed Trump was “delusional” for “thinking he [was] religious,” compared to Biden: “This man wants to talk about ‘hurting God’ when he gassed Americans exercising their First Amendment rights to protest in justice in America….he wants to talk about being a good Christian? A man who puts kids in cages because he likes the message it sends?”
Granholm agreed Trump had “mental problems” before gushing about Biden’s devout faith:
I mean, anybody who knows [Biden] knows that he is a lifelong practicing Catholic, and that he is deeply faithful. In many ways he reminds me of your father and the ability to pull faith into policy and caring for the least of these. Joe Biden walks the talk. He carries a rosary with him every day. It’s just part of his DNA….
Cuomo then sneered at conservative Christians who wouldn’t vote for Biden because they take abortion seriously:
I think your problem for Joe Biden is not, I don’t think he is faithful. It’s that you lefties, this will be the argument, you have turned — I don’t care what his faith is — you guys want to kill all the babies. I don’t care what his faith is. You guys want people to be able to marry anything they whenever they want and decide their gender whenever they want. And that’s not what God wants. Those are the Christians that Trump is going for.
It seems questioning Democrats’ religious beliefs is off-limits for the media but with Republicans or conservatives, it’s fair game.
Before gushing about Biden’s “authentic faith” some more, Granholm gave this goofy response: “ How many times did Jesus say the word gay and how many times did Jesus say the word abortion? Zero. Zero on both.” This was a pretty ignorant thing to say when the Bible has plenty to say about sexual sin and the sanctity of life, even in the womb.
Cuomo has displayed a pattern of bullying conservative Christians and the pro-life movement on his show, from saying we don’t need God’s help, to mocking pro-life believers to comparing baby-protecting laws to Jim Crow and calling anti-infanticide bills, “BS.”
