How Do We Respond to the Diabolical Disorientation That Defines the State of the Union and the State of the Synodal Church?

Although it is virtually certain that Biden could not begin to grasp the significance of the words he angrily barked during his State of the Union Address, it is striking to consider how he developed one of the main themes of his speech:

  • “Not since President Lincoln and the Civil War have freedom and democracy been under assault at home as they are today. What makes our moment rare is that freedom and democracy are under attack at — both at home and overseas at the very same time.”
  • “As I’ve done ever since being elected to office, I ask all of you, without regard to party, to join together and defend democracy. Remember your oath of office to defend against all threats foreign and domestic.”

If we follow the logic of the handlers who wrote his speech, democracy is attacked in the United States as it has never been since the Civil War. That attack is obviously from Trump and his supporters. And Congress has a duty to defend America against these people (“domestic threats”) who want to re-elect Trump. Thus, according to those who told Biden what to say, it is the duty of Congress — and really all Americans — to defend America against another Trump presidency just as they would defend the country against an enemy invasion.

Although Biden was silent on the actual invasion of illegal immigrants taking place on the southern border, his handlers had him talk about our duty to continue increasing the nation’s unprecedented debt to boost the likelihood of World War III:

“I say this to Congress: We have to stand up to Putin. Send me a bipartisan national security bill. History is literally watching. History is watching.”

In addition to history seeing Biden (a) label Trump and his supporters as the greatest threats to democracy since the Civil War, and (b) insist that Congress needs to send more money to provoke Putin into expanding the war beyond Ukraine, history also saw Biden making sure his supporters knew that a vote for him would be a vote for more abortion and more transgender initiatives:

  • “If you — if you, the American people, send me a Congress that supports the right to choose, I promise you I will restore Roe v. Wade as the law of the land again.”
  • “And my message to transgender Americans: I have your back.”

All of this is not merely insane, it is diabolical. Everything in Biden’s America is inverted: lies are considered truths, and truths are considered lies; evil is treated as virtue; virtue is treated as evil. And our representatives are too compromised or corrupt to do anything about it.

Some Catholics justifiably feel additional outrage because Biden calls himself Catholic and can receive Communion from clerics who know his position on abortion. Tragically, though, almost all the bishops who would take a stand against Biden have themselves supported something infinitely more egregious taking place in the Catholic Church under Francis.
