I don’t recall Newsmax host Grant Stinchfield unloading on Donald Trump for committing adultery on all three of his wives, or for the former president paying a porn star hush money — or for Trump’s many other transgressions that are considered blasphemy by the Christian faith. But, Stinchfield went there with President Joe Biden and went as far as to question whether he’s actually a Catholic at all. Trump was rarely seen in church, but Biden is a devout Catholic who attends church consistently.
Stinchfield used his segment on Friday to promote the latest Newsmax magazine issue in which the cover story alleges that President Biden is waging “a new war on Christianity.” Yeah, that schtick is getting old after conservatives tried that sort of attack with former President Barack Obama, too. Nevertheless, Stinchfield went there. Wash, rinse, repeat.
“So Joe claims to be a devout Catholic, right?” he asked. “But the church disagrees! A high-ranking U.S. bishop has warned Biden to stop calling himself devout and acknowledge that his support of abortion disqualifies him of being a devout Catholic.”
That somehow led the Newsmax host to suggest that “there’s a strong case against him that he’s not really a Catholic.”

Well, Stinchfield helped to prop up Trump’s big lie that led to the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection, and I’m pretty sure that lying is a sin. And Donald Trump broke that Commandment daily as well as the Seventh Commandment at least three times.
Joe Biden is only the second Catholic president of the United States, and he’s also a supporter of women’s right to choose. I’ve never seen a passage in the Bible that targets abortion as a sin. According to the Bible, a Christian is someone who has accepted God’s offer of forgiveness through Jesus’ death and resurrection. It does not mention abortion. You can be for women’s right to choose and a Catholic. I think that’s between the individual and God, but you be you, Mr. Stinchfield.
