Joe Biden’s Catholic Faith on Display at Democratic Convention’s Final Night

posted on August 21, 2020

America‘s Michael O’Loughlin reports that Joe Biden’s Catholic faith was highlighted during the last night of the Democratic National Convention. Sen. Chris Coons, who is a divinity school graduate and holds Biden’s former Senate seat, told the audience, “People, Joe believes, were made in the image of God. Joe learned that from his parents and the nuns and priests right here in Delaware, who taught him and inspired in him a passion for justice.” Two Catholic leaders, Sister Simone Campbell of the progressive group Network and Father James Martin of America, also prayed at the convention. O’Loughlin writes, “If Mr. Biden wins in November, he will be just the second Catholic elected president.”
