Sen. Joseph Biden said yesterday that if the Republicans were serious about helping disabled children they would support stem-cell research.
Catholic League president Bill Donohue responded this way:
Bidens remark, which was aimed at Sarah Palin, is not only inaccurate, it exposes his Catholic Achilles heel once again. No one in public life has ever taken a position against all stem-cell research; adult stem-cell research is not ethically problematic. What millions of Americans object to is embryonic stem-cell research, and that is because it is impossible to do this kind of research without destroying the embryo. Now it may come as news to Biden that the embryo represents nascent human life, though it is not clear whether this would matter to a man who agrees with NARAL 75 percent of the time.
The Catholic Church, to which Biden belongs, is opposed to embryonic stem-cell research; McCain and Obama, along with Biden, are not. In this regard, Palin is more Catholic than Biden. Not only does he look bad in comparison to Palin, it is coming at a time when Biden is being hit with a barrage of criticism from bishops angry with his Meet the Press appearance where he declared abortion to be a personal matter.
Bishop Morlino of Madison, Wisconsin saw Biden on TV and quickly put aside the homily he prepared for Mass: he instead branded Bidens distortion of this issue as breaching church and state lines. Archbishop Chaput of Denver said it would not be wise for Biden to present himself for Communion. Biden, who hails from Scranton, was indirectly cited by Scranton Bishop Martino: he said that No Catholic politician who supports the culture of death should approach Holy Communion. Bidens outgoing bishop, Wilmington Bishop Saltarelli, said that if Biden becomes vice president, he will bar him from speaking in Catholic schools. Philadelphia Archbishop Rigali and Bridgeport Bishop Lori both blasted Biden for contradicting Church teaching on abortion.
In short, Biden is self-destructing right before our eyes.
Will HRC wait 16 years to get what she wants?
The whole Obama campaign is in “Dukakis mode”. It is so fun to watch them take shots at our Sarah who has more class in her right pinky than all of them combined.
I love the Catholic League. They kick butt.
STAND UP CHUCK!!!!! ROFLMAO
***In this regard, Palin is more Catholic than Biden.***
It would follow that the three of us are more catholic as well.
now I won’t be able to sleep tonight....
Will HRC wait 16 years to get what she wants?
Obviously not! In 16 years she will be much older than McCain is now. She might have a shot in ‘12 if the cards were to fall her way but after that she is too old and tired to try again.
“No one in public life has ever taken a position against all stem-cell research; adult stem-cell research is not ethically problematic. What millions of Americans object to is embryonic stem-cell research...”
The Donks have INTENTIONALLY conflated the two types of research, INTENTIONALLY holding up federal funding for ADULT stem cell research on the altar abortion in the form of EMBRYONIC stem cell research. Do they care that only ADULT stem cell research has results in REAL treatments for REAL people? Do they care that EMBRYONIC stem cell research hasn’t? Do they care that their pro-abortion policy is delaying REAL RESEARCH into REAL TREATMENTS that WORK? Of course they don’t. What are a few more lives sacrificed on the altar of abortion? /SPIT & HURL
PS Private industry is now funding ADULT stem cell research. Why? Because it has real potential for more real treatments and cures. Still, the politics have delayed progress for literally years, costing countless lives for sufferers of diseases such as ALS and MS.
That’s the “Biden Up-Chuck gaffe”.
“costing countless lives for sufferers of diseases such as ALS and MS.”
I should add — including a close friend of mine, for which I will NEVER forgive these F###s.
If McCain/Palin win in Nov, Hillary is done for good. She’ll be 76, and there is no telling who will come on the scene by then.
Uuuummmm, Joe, uuuuummmmmm, a 75% from NARAL is not a good thing — in this case — either you are a Catholic and you believe what your church believes or you are just sitting in church for appearances. In essence, you are only for life 25% of the time — that is sad.
So really Joe, you sitting in your church for an hour a week isn’t going to make you any more of a Catholic, than me sitting in my garage for week will make me Chevy...that pretty much sum this up.
I know Catholics, and you sir, are no Catholic.
“STAND UP CHUCK!!!!! ROFLMAO”
I heard that again this morning....mercy! Think about this...the disabled already like Sarah and after this foot-in-mouth episode...he’s lost them all....well, and anyone with a brain.
The next time John McCain says “Stand up and fight with me for America!”, Biden will freak out and say—”He’s making fun of me! Where’s my apology? “
Right here, birdbrain, right here.
Don't you have to be fully assembled to be destructing?
