Joe Biden, Life at Conception, and Afghan Pedophiles

“I’m prepared to accept that at the moment of conception there’s human life and being,” Biden said. “But I’m not prepared to say that to other God-fearing, non-God-fearing people that have a different view.”

Biden's moral reasoning is the sort that facilitates not just abortion, but ultimately instructions to American soldiers to accommodate Afghan pedophiles:
A 45-minute scripted presentation given to Marines as part of their pre-deployment process doesn't say that they shouldn’t report sexual assaults in the countries where they’re serving. But it explains that laws and norms about sexual relations vary from country to country, and that in Afghanistan in particular, sexual assault is a “cultural” issue, and not a purely legal one.
In other words, Marines ought to understand how they're expected to treat children, but they shouldn't hold to the same standard other "God-fearing, non-God-fearing people that have a different view."

Laws protect us from evil people who "have a different view" that the strong can exploit the weak. That's what laws are for, and that's what lawmakers like Biden do. Biden spent 26 years in the Senate, and now more than 6 as its presiding officer. It's unimaginable that he doesn't comprehend the incoherence of his statement.

But Biden isn't worse than most of our elected officials. He's just more honest.

Two things about Joe (but I wouldn't vote for him!): He is likable ... he's learned how to "reach across the aisle"
