American Catholics! Is this man worthy of your vote?

"To whom much is given, much is expected." 

These words of Our Lord Jesus Christ as quoted in the Gospel of Luke, say much about the difference between Catholic Joseph Biden and Protestant Donald J. Trump. Catholics defending Biden state that he is a "devout" Catholic. Trump on the other hand is a rich, greedy, adulterer and more. One should remind oneself of Our Lord's parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector. When given the opportunity, unlike John Lennon who said that the Beatles were "more popular than Jesus Christ," Trump, after being told he was the "most famous man in the world" told the people at a rally, that he corrected the person that it was really "Jesus Christ" as he pointed up the heavens.

Catholic Joseph Biden said, "We will protect women's constitutional right to choose and I am proud to stand with you in this fight."

It is quite obvious what you Americans are required to do. 

Donald Trump's salvation is up to him and God. So is Joseph Biden's. But Biden had the Sacraments and the upbringing to know better. Donald Trump truly has the ability to know better but not the Sacraments. May grace flow that he comes to the fullness and may Biden repent. If you, as a Catholic, vote for Biden, you will share in that photo, above. As another comparison, watching a commercial featuring Franklin Graham in Seattle speaking of the people returning to Jesus Christ to solve the problems in America, one can look at any Catholic bishop and ask if they love Jesus more than this man? 

It is obvious to me, in this case, who is the Pharisee and who is the Tax Collector. The works of God are mysterious, but sometimes, not so much.
