Joe Biden, Mario the Pious and Social Justice

Well folks, after watching the debate last night, there are a couple of things..
1.  He talks about Social Justice and yet, a man with his means only donated a couple of hundred  dollars to charity.  I guess that Social Justice begins with YOUR money and not his.
2.  As expected, he used the Mario the Pious defense:  "I am opposed but..."  Either you are your faith, or not on right to life issues.  Let's be clear and frank about this (or his he going to laugh about it).  This was made famous by Mario Cuomo in the 1980s, as he looked to obtain a national office.   
And on a separate note, the catholycs for obama crowd are so SHAMELESS that they have a photo of Joe Biden with Mother Theresa, as if Mother Teresa would support him.   Remember what Mother Teresa said in regards to abortion: 
"It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish."
"Any country that accepts abortion, is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what it wants."
National Prayer Breakfast in Washington attended by the President and the First Lady. "What is taking place in America," she said, "is a war against the child. And if we accept that the mother can kill her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another."
"America needs no words from me to see how your decision in Roe v. Wade has deformed a great nation. The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men. It has sown violence and discord at the heart of the most intimate human relationships. It has aggravated the derogation of the father's role in an increasingly fatherless society. It has portrayed the greatest of gifts -- a child -- as a competitor, an intrusion, and an inconvenience. It has nominally accorded mothers unfettered dominion over the independent lives of their physically dependent sons and daughters"
And, in granting this unconscionable power, it has exposed many women to unjust and selfish demands from their husbands or other sexual partners. Human rights are not a privilege conferred by government. They are every human being's entitlement by virtue of his humanity. The right to life does not depend, and must not be declared to be contingent, on the pleasure of anyone else, not even a parent or a sovereign."

I watched the debate too. I thought Ryan was comported himself well on stage in contrast to the Vice President.

National Review online has full debate coverage for those who are interested.
