Catholic Vote launched a campaign against Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden to show his anti-Catholic record and raise awareness of the consequences Catholics would face if Biden were to win the election in November, the Daily Caller reported.
Brian Burch, president of Catholic Vote said, “Joe Biden’s record makes clear he will not protect our Catholic values or defend our way of life. For Catholics who cherish the Faith and their freedom to live it, a Biden presidency represents an existential threat.”
The campaign will involve the purchase of digital ads targeting residents of Pennsylvania and Michigan, two of the key states in winning the election, and will total $9.7 million.
In a 30-second video ad titled “Indispensable,” Catholic Vote presents some of the arguments why Catholics should not vote for the Biden-Harris duo—Biden’s pro-abortion stance and lack of principle in the face of pressure from Marxist movements like Black Lives Matters, which seeks to eliminate the concept of the traditional family ‘imposed’ by Western culture.
The ad warns, “Joe Biden would force American Catholics to pay for abortions, sacrificing his Catholic values, to kneel before the leftist mob.” It also features Sister Dede Byrne, a long-serving military surgeon, who spoke at the Republican National Conference and said, Biden and Harris “is the most anti-life presidential ticket ever.”
On its website, Catholic Vote published a very comprehensive 90-page report on Joe Biden’s political decision-making history, using textual citations and excerpts from media publications.
During Obama-Biden’s last term, traditional practices such as praying before a football game or during a school ceremony were penalized, according to a Fox News article, and it was President Trump who instituted National Religious Freedom Day on Jan. 16, 2020.
Trump said, “In public schools around the country, authorities are stopping students and teachers from praying, sharing their faith, or following their religious beliefs. It is totally unacceptable. You see it on the football field. You see it so many times where they’re stopped from praying. And we are doing something to stop that.”
Harris has received support from pro-choice organizations such as NARAL Pro Choice America, and according to the Biden-Harris campaign website, abortion would be included in public health plans and federal funding would again be made available for the abortion facility Planned Parenthood.
