Useful idiots (definition): People who, unwittingly, are propagandists for a cause the goals of which they are not fully aware, and who are used cynically by the leaders of the cause.

Chris Field reports for The Blaze that although Joe Biden had campaigned for the presidency on being pro-abortion, a group of supposed pro-life evangelical leaders who had banded together to support the 2020 election of Biden are now expressing shock and dismay that President Biden has reversed President Trump’s pro-life executive orders that ended U.S. taxpayers’ funding of abortions in the United States and abroad.

During the 2020 election, Pro-Life Evangelicals for Biden declared their support for pro-abort Biden and put out a petition encouraging Christians to do the same. The petition said:

As pro-life evangelicals, we disagree with Vice President Biden and the Democratic platform on the issue of abortion. But…we believe that on balance, Joe Biden’s policies are more consistent with the biblically shaped ethic of life than those of Donald Trump. Therefore, even as we continue to urge different policies on abortion, we urge evangelicals to elect Joe Biden as president.

Now, the group profess being shocked and dismayed by the Biden administration.

In an open letter, the oxymoronic Pro-Life Evangelicals for Biden now say they feel “used and betrayed” by the Biden administration and decried the fact that the COVID relief package passed by Congress excludes the Hyde Amendment, which prevents tax money from being used to fund abortion, in spite of the fact that the Biden campaign had said on its own website before the election that Biden supported repealing the Hyde Amendment.

The Evangelical group says in their open letter:

As pro-life leaders in the evangelical community, we publicly supported President Biden’s candidacy with the understanding that there would be engagement [with] us on the issue of abortion and particularly the Hyde Amendment. The Biden team wanted to talk to us during the campaign to gain our support, and we gave it on the condition there would be active dialogue and common ground solutions on the issue of abortion. There has been no dialogue since the campaign.

We feel used and betrayed and have no intention of simply watching these kinds of efforts happen from the sidelines. Many evangelicals and Catholics took risks to support Biden publicly. President Biden and Democrats need to honor their courage.

I believe the Pro-Life Evangelicals for Biden knew full well before the 2020 election that Biden and the Democrat Party are pro-abort and determined to restore U.S. taxpayer funding of abortions — and more. The group’s protests now are hollow, the purpose of which is to cover their sorry asses.

  • Claude Alexander, Bishop

Idiots! The anti-life ongoing policies of the Democrats are hideous and they make their positions very clear!
