The following is one of several articles on Senator Joe Biden's visit to Scranton. The visit was an attempt to gain votes locally. Some referenced his schooling at St. Paul's in an effort to convince Catholics that Biden is a man of faith.
However, Biden's pro-abortion voting record and his relationship with the National Abortion Rights Action League should prove that Biden's faith is clearly not Roman Catholic in practice. Nancy Keenan, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, issued the following statement in response to Obama's selection of Joe Biden as his running mate. "Sen. Biden has consistently expressed support for a woman's right to choose (abortion)...."we have a longstanding relationship with Sen. Biden that is open, positive, and constructive, and we are confident this will continue in a new administration under Sen. Obama's pro-choice leadership."
"Most notably, Sen. Biden has a strong record of opposing judicial nominees with hostile anti-choice records. He voted against George W. Bush's two anti-choice nominees to the U.S. Supreme Court, John Roberts and Samuel Alito, and he opposed anti-choice Justice Clarence Thomas' nomination to the Court as well as multiple anti-choice nominees to lower federal courts." Remember folks, the choice Keenan is talking about here is the choice of a women to abort her child at any statge of development.
Bishop Martino of Scranton is certainly aware that Senator Biden is a proponent of the abortion culture.(See following article)
If you can stomach the mushey stuff from the Times: "Mr. Biden, who was born at Mercy Hospital, remembers standing against the edge of a kitchen doorway so his mother could measure his height. He remembers his Aunt Gertie Finnegan lived in the attic, her rice pudding and the way she could scratch away an itchy back.
He told the story of how his Irish Catholic mother, the former Catherine Eugenia Finnegan, urged him to go back into the alley behind the home, Dimmick Avenue, and punch in the nose a boy who knocked him down, as his father taught him. When he did that, the boy’s friends scattered, he said."

Someone ought to tell the Times being born of an Irish Catholic mother may make someone half Irish, but it does not necessarily make them Catholic.
