Joe Biden Says Democrats Have Been Too Fearful to Discuss Religion

(Hat tip: Custos Fidei)

From FOXNews:
NASHUA, N.H. — White House hopeful Joe Biden said Monday that Democrats lost the last two presidential elections in part because they let themselves be portrayed as anti-God.

Democrats have been too afraid to talk about faith, Biden said at a Rotary Club luncheon. But what voters really want to know is whether a president believes in something bigger than themselves and whether he or she respects the faith of others, he said.

Biden, a practicing Catholic, acknowledged that he rarely has talked about religion in his 34-year Senate career, but suggested that would change if he wins the Democratic presidential nomination.

"I can hardly wait for one of these guys on the other side tell me about family values. I can hardly wait for them to tell me — a guy who's commuted for 34 years to get home and put my kids to bed," he said. "I can hardly wait for them to tell me — a guy who's been married for 30 years when they've been divorced three times.
[ED.: Somebody's obviously expecting Rudy to win the Republican nomination. If that does happen (God forbid), then Holy Joe has a point - Republicans will hardly be in any position to be talking about "family values".] I can hardly wait."

My Comments:
Yeah, Holy Joe Biden "can hardly wait" to shove his Rosary beads down our throats.
