Searching the Internet, it isn't difficult finding images of Vice President Joe Biden with ashes on his forehead which he, presumably received during an Ash Wednesday service.
But, as Sean O'Donnell asks in this article, is VP Joe Biden even Catholic?
O'Donnell lists a number of Biden’s political positions and compares them with the teachings of the Catholic Church. The issues include abortion,embryonic stem cell research & human cloning,same-sex "marriage",voluntary prayer in public schools, the death penalty and the Iraq War.
On each of these issues, Biden is in opposition to Catholic teaching.
Having ashes on his forehead may impress some that he is Catholic, but he will be judged on his other actions as well.
