(FreedomBeacon.com)- President Joe Biden has been the most pro-abortion, pro-LGBT, and anti-religious in American history, despite constantly reminding the public that he is a devout Catholic.
His wife, Jill Biden, is devout, as well. This week, Dr. Jill gave a lecture in Kenya, and she went all out, at least in terms of her clothing, to make a “Catholic” point. It seemed like the first lady was wearing a rosary as a necklace.
But how Catholic are they?
Jill and Joe were married on June 17, 1977, in the United Nations Chapel “by a Catholic priest,” according to Jill’s book, Where the Light Enters: Building a Family, Discovering Myself (2019).
However, the New York Times published a story on weddings in the UN Chapel on May 9, 1976. In it, they identify the chaplain as Rev. Dr. Melvin Hawthorne. He was a United Methodist pastor. The pastor claims that the chapel is not officially affiliated with the UN but that many UN employees choose to worship at his church. Several interfaith couples who “ran into snags elsewhere” found success at the chapel, which hosted over 400 marriages that year.
This begs the question, what was the “snag” for the Bidens?
Had they conducted the mandatory prenuptial research, they would have learned that Jill had been married in February 1970 and divorced in March 1975.
In the Morning News of Wilmington, Delaware, on July 24, 1977, Biden is quoted as stating, “I believed the fact that Jill was married previously had no importance.”
According to LifeSite News, “Biden participated in several activities connected to the ’empowerment of women and youth'” while in Namibia and Kenya for five days on February 27.
The Washington Post reports that a Rosary-wearing Jill praised the young people of Kenya attending the event for their openness to learning about and discussing healthy dating and safe intercourse.
Sexual activity, however, is reserved for married couples in the Roman Catholic religion and most other Christian denominations. However, you wouldn’t know it from listening to Jill Biden say it.
Is it right for the First Lady, whether or not she is a practicing Catholic, to wear the most recognizable item of Catholic symbols while also going against the teachings of the Church?
