Devout Catholic? The Media vs. Biden’s Real Record


NEWSBUSTERS —

President Biden is a “devout Catholic,” the liberal media say. But there’s consternation among some U.S. Catholic leaders about how Biden’s policies directly contradict Church teachings. As columnist Cal Thomas asked elsewhere on this site, “How can one be devout about one’s faith and not comport with Scripture and the teachings of the Catholic Church?”

First, the media sales pitch. You’ve heard it over and over again: CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on the morning of Biden’s inauguration: “He is, as we keep pointing out, a religious man, a man of deep faith.”

That echoed correspondent Gloria Borger asserting back in September that “he’s a very devout Catholic….it’s been inculcated in him since he was a young kid.”

On NBC in August, Nightly News anchor Lester Holt made it seem like his job title, referring to “devout Catholic Joe Biden.” That same evening, ABC News correspondent Mary Bruce also championed Biden, then under fire from President Trump, as “a devout Catholic” — as if it were an undisputed fact.
