When Joe Biden was sworn in, the press made such a big deal about Joe’s religious beliefs. Look at the big Bible he was sworn in with. And isn’t he such a better example of faith than the guy before him?
Well, the press may have been impressed by Joe’s show of religion. But the Vatican wasn’t.
In the coming funeral service for the recently-passed Pope Emeritus Benedict, simplicity is the order of the day. A couple of world leaders have been invited to the services. Joe Biden is not among them.

While only two state delegations were officially invited to attend the funeral Mass for the pope emeritus, some heads of state and public figures have decided to attend the funeral in an unofficial capacity.

It’s probably for the best that the President who has been championing abortion and arresting Catholic ministers for inviting people NOT to kill their unborn children is NOT attending the pope’s funeral.
