I received this tart response this morning:
“Who the heck are you to sit and evaluate the validity of another person’s commitment or adherence to their religion? What’s next, an evaluation of how well Mitt Romney follows Mormon dogma?”
The writer takes me to task for my recent post, “The character chasm between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan.”
I responded as follows:
“I certainly don’t know anything about Mormon dogma.
I do know something about Catholic dogma, as a man who tries to seriously practice his Catholic faith.
The Catholic Church has made it clear that human life begins at conception. Joe Biden has made it clear that he doesn’t care, by accepting human abortion as a fundamental American right. My Church sits in judgement of Mr. Biden on this issue. What separates us from animals is our ability to make moral judgements, to be able to discern what is right from wrong.
If we believe that killing innocent human life is intrinsically evil, as does the Church, and we don’t condemn it, and if we don’t try to change it, then we have sacrificed the essence of our humanity.”
Joe Biden, a self-professed Catholic, brings judgement upon himself by so publicly opposing Catholic principle in the public square.
