According to this story, Bishops want clarification from Joe Biden after Biden – Catholic – officiated at a gay wedding. They act as shocked as Charley Owens at something that should be as predictable as bad reality TV. Why I don’t know. He’s a liberal Catholic who, like most religious liberals, follows the Left. Wherever the Left goes, the liberal believer will follow. That’s why nobody cares about the Religious Left. Not that Trump and the GOP haven’t exposed a glaring problem in the Religious Right and its ability to throw doctrine and morals under the bus to fit the latest political movement. It’s just that traditionally, Conservative believers held the line and demanded at least some fealty to their most cherished beliefs.
So Biden officiating at a gay wedding shouldn’t be shocking. He is liberal. The Church is wrong and it’s high damn time the Church change and get with the times. Oh, maybe there was a time it was right, or it couldn’t help being wrong because of backward thinking. Some progressives are willing to invoke a sense of moral superiority over those wrong thinking types of yore. But whatever the reason, the teachings are declared wrong, and it shouldn’t be shocking that a liberal Catholic would, as usual, move forward and cleave unto the latest, hippest on this topic.
