VP Debate: Biden's abortion stance highlights liberal Christian hypocrisy

Before I get to the above, I'll touch on the VP debate quickly.  While Paul Ryan wasn't as good as Romney was in his debate, this does not mean Biden was any better, let alone the winner.  His arrogance and blatant disrespect for Ryan put on national display the arrogant, snooty, smug, sleazy leftist caricature that rarely gets this level of public exposure.  Conservatives deal with it all the time, but now, thanks to Biden, it's broken into the mainstream for everyone to see.  This behavior, while definitely not giving the loss in the debate, will act as a slow erosion to Obama's campaign as down to earth moderate Democrats become turned off to supporting a ticket that touts a blame and make excuses, emperor has no clothes president and an arrogant, sneering wannabe aging liberal hipster.  And as a swing countermeasure, this can also piss off conservatives enough to help mobilize them through the next weeks.  I don't know about you, but laughing about the serious issues this country faces just reignites that visceral, righteous indignation that's been burning inside me for the past 9 months. 

But the part that really ignited my ire was his repsonse to the abortion question.  Both men claim to be Catholic and claim their religion has shaped their own values.  Yet, guess who didn't put his money where his mouth is when it came time to stand up for his own beliefs?  Yep, Biden.  Here's his divergent response:

“I just refuse to impose that on others, unlike my friend here,” Biden told Raddatz and the audience. “I do not believe we have a right to tell women that they can’t control their body. It’s a decision between them and their doctor.”

Except that, I don't know, this decision kills babies.   It is infanticide.  So, by giving a woman a right to choose to abort a child, he's simultaneously taking the right to LIFE away from that baby.  I don't know about you, but letting a human being live trumps the exercising of rights in this case.  So what Biden is basically saying is an unborn baby's life is worth less than a woman's right to choose to kill it.  

Liberals howl and scream and squirm at the thought of being pinned down on abortion.  They'll try their best to spin it as Christian oppression.  But no matter how it's spun the bottom line is this:  Abortion is the murder of innocent babies.  Any excuses given, from my perspective, just looks like someone trying to justify such a deplorable act.  It is immoral and wrong and anyone that is ok with it has, quite frankly, a broken and corrupt moral compass.  

My favorite defense is how liberals will reach for the extreme situations (like rape), but let's face reality:  Abortion is vastly and widely used as a form of birth control much more than it is ever used in those rare extreme circumstances.  In other words, the vast majority of abortions happen due to women not wanting to deal with the consequences of poor choices made in the bedroom.  

I know that last statement will anger plenty of women.  Thing is, for the longest time I've not been outspoken about this because as a man I'll never know what it's like.  Yet, that was just an excuse for not standing up for my beliefs.  If it angers plenty of women, so be it.  It's the truth.  Abortion kills babies and is wrong, immoral, and evil.  

And now back to Biden and his hypocrisy.  What's worse than someone supporting the murder of innocent babies?  A Christian supporting the murder of innocent babies.  A Christian should know better.  And quite frankly, it puts into question for me whether they truly are Christian.  Do they not see how vile this is?  Do they not see how they've been tricked?  

Think about this:  Can you think of anything more vile than the murder of innocent babies?  Personally, I cannot.  Yet, thanks to morally corrupt leftist thinking, many Christians have been convinced that this is ok.  Let me repeat:  Christians have been tricked into believing murdering innocent babies is ok.  You want to talk about a victory for the enemies of Christianity? I guarantee you this tops the charts.  

Any Christian, liberal or otherwise, that supports abortion is a hypocrite, just like Joe Biden.
