Newsmax Anchor Says Joe Biden Will Wage War on Christianity
Newsmax anchor Grant Stinchfield said on Friday that President Joe Biden is going to start a holy war against Christianity and that he is most likely a fake Catholic.
“So, folks, the Newsmax magazine is growing literally just like this network is by leaps and bounds. It’s now read by more than 600,000 people each month. The cover story for March is a very important issue. David Horowitz is predicting a new war on Christianity brought on by Joe Biden,” Stinchfield began.
“So Joe claims to be a devout Catholic, right? But the Church disagrees. A high-ranking US bishop has warned Biden to stop calling himself devout and acknowledge that his support of abortion disqualifies him of being a devout Catholic,” Stinchfield proclaimed.
After being joined by Newsmax Executive Editor Ken Chandler and Democratic strategist Douglas Schoen, Stinchfield made fun of Biden’s stutter and accused him of being disingenuous.
“Biden can’t even pronounce ‘psalms,’ we all remember that sound bite,” Stinchfield sniveled. “He supports abortion, um, there’s a strong case against him that he’s not really a Catholic.”

Stinchfield, however, does not have his facts straight.
First, a majority of American Catholics support legalized abortion, despite the Vatican’s opposition. Second, although the president is not personally a fan of the procedure, Biden – a life-long practicing Catholic – has vowed that he will never impose his own beliefs onto others, which cannot be said of those on the right. Crucially, Biden has evolved on the issue and he supports policies that further empower women.
Pope Francis – who opposes abortion no matter the circumstances – has encouraged unity among ideologically split Catholics in the United States.
“Under your leadership, may the American people continue to draw strength from the lofty political, ethical, and religious values that have inspired the nation since its founding,” Francis said following Biden’s inauguration. “I likewise ask God, the source of all wisdom and truth, to guide your efforts to foster understanding, reconciliation, and peace within the United States and among the nations of the world in order to advance the universal common good” and that the “grave crises facing our human family call for farsighted and united responses.”
