Democrat Presidential candidate Joe Biden is pro abortion and has said aborting unborn babies is an “essential medical service,” he opposes religious freedom for Catholic organizations like the Little Sister of the Poor, a nun’s charity that serves the poor and elderly.
But now, in an effort to appear ‘inclusive,’ Biden proposes to run a series of ‘Believers for Biden’ and ‘Evangelicals for Biden’ events.
Joe Biden’s campaign is attempting to woo Christian voters with talk about caring for the “least of these” and fighting “systemic racism.”
In an interview with The Christian Post this week, Josh Dickson, the national faith engagement director for the campaign, downplayed Biden’s pro-abortion stance and his opposition to religious freedom and focused instead on the issue of racism.
“We’re hearing from people; we’re engaging people, we’re developing relationships. We are going to be including evangelical voices in our ‘Believers for Biden’ events, and we are also going to be launching ‘Evangelicals for Biden,’” he said.
Dickson described Biden as “an authentic man of faith whose faith and values inform his political participation, his long history of fighting for civil rights and fighting for the least of these.”
He believes the Democrat presidential candidate’s commitment to “fighting systemic racism” will sway some Christians to support him.
“The real religious issue in this election is fighting systemic racism,” Dickson said, pointing to evangelical Christians’ support for the Black Lives Matter movement. “We’ve seen a tremendous response from individual pastors who have large followings who have marched in the streets. We’ve seen leaders, elected leaders who have marched in the streets from evangelical backgrounds.”
But when asked about Biden’s support for abortion on demand, including taxpayer-funded abortions, and his opposition to religious freedom for Catholic nuns and others, Dickson avoided a direct answer.
