What Does it Mean to Say Biden is a "Casual Catholic"? (Paul Levine, Denmark, 11/06/20 10:46 am)

David Duggan's diatribe (November 6th) against the next US president, Joe Biden, includes several curious statements.

Here is one. Among his sins, David accuses Biden of "His casual Roman Catholicism (he votes for abortion and would repeal the Hyde amendment which prohibits federal funds from being used to pay for them)." When last I looked, the US Constitution said nothing about the president, regardless of his personal religious views, taking orders from the Vatican. In fact, our first Roman Catholic president, John F. Kennedy, explicitly made the point that the US Constitution was based on the separation of church and state.

Besides, I think the poor Pontiff has enough on his hands dealing with the exploding pedophilia scandals in his church. Or has the Vatican motto become, "May all your problems be little ones"?

JE comments:  Ouch on that final quip.  It is curious that the first Catholic president (JFK) was faulted for the suspicion of listening to the Vatican, and our second Catholic president (Biden) is faulted for not obeying Rome.
