On Sunday, Joe Biden visited Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia to deliver remarks honoring the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. This is the same church that Sen. Raphael Warnock is supposedly a pastor of. His views do not reflect Christian values at all. As part of Biden’s speech, he recalled his experiences attending a Black church as a teenager. “I used to go to 7:30 mass every morning in high school and then in college, before I went to the Black church. Not a joke,” Biden said.
However, this statement is yet another lie. During his teen years and early adulthood, Biden’s religious upbringing was Catholic and there is no record of him ever attending a Black church before college. These are just things that Joe Biden says in order to try and trick people into thinking that he’s like them. Haven’t you ever noticed that no matter what the occasion, Biden always seems to have a story about how he identifies with them? He lied about going to a Black church the same way that he lied about his son dying in Afghanistan.
He also made statements about his involvement with the civil rights movement, which are lies, also. He was not an active participant in those efforts during that time period.
As if these inaccuracies weren’t already cringe-worthy enough, Biden proceeded to make another unfortunate mistake while speaking at Ebenezer Baptist Church in his usual creepy Joe fashion. He creeped on a girl sitting in the audience. “What’s your name honey? It’s good to see you. Maybe I can have a picture with you before I leave, ok? Is that alright?” Biden said awkwardly.

The president’s comments drew criticism from many viewers who expressed shock at how unprofessional and inappropriate his remarks were for such a solemn occasion dedicated to paying tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy of peace and justice for all people regardless of race or background. This incident only added fuel to the mounting controversy surrounding Biden’s false claims about his past affiliations with Black churches and civil rights efforts.
