Biden: Christians 'intolerant' of LGBT are 'virulent dregs of society'

Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden (4/2013)Former Vice President Joe Biden bashed Christians opposing the homosexual agenda as “forces of intolerance” and “virulent dregs of society” at a recent LGBT event, and a prominent pro-family group used his rant to alert Americans about what a leftist takeover in the nation’s capital would mean for believers.

“Biden addressed the Human Rights Campaign’s (HRC) annual dinner in Washington, D.C., [and] spoke about the fight for LGBTQ rights and the need to treat everyone with dignity,” CSPAN reported. “He criticized President Trump as being an ally for the ‘forces of intolerance’ and using the White House as a ‘literal bully pulpit.’”

After being introduced by HRC President Chad Griffin, Biden soon tore into Christians and other socially conservative supporters of President Donald Trump.

"These forces of intolerance remain determined to undermine and roll back the progress you all have made,” Biden proclaimed during his keynote address at last weekend’s LGBT fundraiser, as reported on Todd Starnes’ show. “They are a small percentage of the American people – virulent people – some of them the dregs of society."

Beware of LGBT takeover …

A warning was soon sent out by a Washington, D.C.-based Christian organization that persecution is coming if conservatives fighting for biblical values are displaced by LGBT activist politicians on Capitol Hill.

“[According to the Family Research Council (FRC),] Biden's 'dregs' slam [is] a reminder of [the] 'hostility' Christians face,” WND reported.

In a recent update, FRC President Tony Perkins alerted believers that the so-called “social justice” movement itching and poising to take over the nation’s capital after November’s midterm elections would wreak havoc for Christians who hold fast to God’s Word concerning human sexuality.

“Biden's insults are revealing about the hostility that conservative, Christian citizens and others who oppose their radical agenda will be subjected to if the left succeeds in their goal to reclaim power here in Washington and in state capitols around the nation,” Perkins’ Washington Update warned.

Resurfacing attack?

Biden’s recent comments drew up distinct similarities of attacks the Democratic Party launched against Bible-believing Christians a couple years back before the 2016 election, when Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton slammed Trump supporters just hours after her rival made the case for social conservatives as the first Republican presidential nominee to address the Values Voter Summit since it was established a decade earlier in 2006.

“Speaking at an LGBT fundraiser, Hillary lobbed her infamous ‘basket of deplorables’ and ‘irredeemable’ insult,” FRC recounted.

She did not hold back in letting America know how she felt about those opposed to her ultra-left political platform regarding social issues.

“You could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables – right?" Clinton declared at the time, according to TIME. "The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic – you name it … and unfortunately, there are people like that – and he has lifted them up."

Despite all of the backpedaling and attempts by Democrats to discount Clinton’s remarks aimed at social conservatives, Biden, the former first lady and others on the political left have not changed their tune against those who do not embrace their unbiblical pro-LGBT agenda.

“Losing an election apparently didn't change their view about those who stand ‘irredeemable’ – a view that is in stark contrast to what Christians believe about the redemptive work of Jesus Christ, [b]ut the Clinton/Biden view of their fellow Americans shouldn't be a surprise,” FRC contended.

Clinton’s internal campaign emails mocking evangelicals and Catholics as being “backwards” were then brought up, along with the Obama/Clinton policies that marginalized Little Sisters of the Poor and millions of other Americans for merely striving to live their lives without compromising their faith.

“The full court press against faith in the public square included the subtle but substantive redefinition of religious freedom to the ‘freedom of worship,’ but nowhere in Scripture does it say faith is to be contained within the four walls of a house of worship,” FRC pointed out. “Doing so would reduce church to nothing more than a glorified social club. The Constitution's First Amendment certainly doesn't adopt this narrow view – it protects something much broader: the freedom to hold the religious beliefs of one's choice and to live out those beliefs … which is also known as religious freedom.”

Biden busy at work for LGBT

Biden did not just give lip service as a keynote speaker to the LGBT community in his vow to push for more LGBT privileges – often masqueraded as “LGBT rights,” – as just last month, he launched his “As You Are” LGBTQ family acceptance campaign.

A major focus of his radical campaign is to share personal stories given by LGBTQ youth, parents and educators in order to convince and force others to accept and embrace alternative lifestyles as something to be celebrated – not avioded.

“[We set out] to inspire, to create communities, to heal families, and to change the broader culture to ensure a bright future for all LGBTQ young people,” an ‘As You Are’ news release reads.

Despite a preponderance of evidence showing the severe detrimental effects of the LGBT lifestyle on youth and adults alike, Biden’s ultra-left pro-LGBTQ campaign is also claiming that is has data from the field of medicine testifying that the best thing families can do for their gender-confused children is encourage their destructive behavior.

“We’ll use our resources to highlight the harms of family rejection and lift up research, best practices and personal stories to show the importance of family acceptance,” Biden assured in his campaign video posted on his Biden Foundation website.

Using star power to forward his pro-LGBTQ agenda, Biden used ‘80s rock star Cyndi Lauper and former NFL star Wade Davis in a campaign video to push his claim that LGBTQ youth are continual victims of discrimination and rejection – which both icons blame for the exceedingly higher rates of suicide and homelessness from which gender-confused children suffer.

Biden’s message that parents should support their children’s LGBTQ lifestyles is supported by numerous pro-LGBT groups, such as the one led by The Trevor Project CEO and Executive Director Amit Paley.

“Family acceptance can save lives,” Paley insisted, according to NBC News. “Gay, lesbian and bisexual youth are more than four times more likely than their straight peers to attempt suicide, and 40 percent of transgender and gender-nonconforming adults report having attempted suicide at some point in their lives – most of them before the age of 25. That’s why it is so important to support LGBTQ youth and let them know that they are not alone.”

The facts actually do stack up against those who practice LGBT behavior.

“According to a recent study from the University of Chicago, LGBTQ youth experienc[ing] homelessness are more than twice as likely [to] experience homelessness than their straight peers,” Time.com’s Casey Quackenbush informed.

Biden has also gone to social media with his LGBTQ campaign, going as far as to imply that parents who object to homosexual behavior are rejecting their children – instead of the harmful lifestyle they live.

“LGBTQ young people should never have to face rejection from those who love them,” Biden tweeted while announcing his campaign launch.

The potential future 2020 Democratic presidential candidate has been busy at work indoctrinating American youth and adults alike that the LGBTQ lifestyle is the new “civil rights” movement, and he is still doing all he can to put the pressure on Trump to push forward more pro-LGBT legislation – as former President Barack Obama did during his two terms in office.

“Biden has been a longtime champion of LGBTQ rights and ensuring LGBTQ equality is one of the pillars of his foundation,” Quackenbush pointed out. “Last year, he urged the LGBTQ community to ‘hold President Trump accountable for his pledge to be your friend,’ at a gala hosted by the Democratic National Committee in New York.”
