A Tale of Two Catholics: How Biden, Ryan Differ

Ad Feedback

Vice President Joe Biden and the man who hopes to replace him, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, have something in common.

They're both Irish-American Catholics.

Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League, says the men actually represent two separate camps of the Catholic Church: the pro-life wing and the social justice wing.

Biden has been criticized for his stance on gay marriage and abortion, which goes against Catholic Church teachings.

Ryan also came under fire earlier this year after using his Catholic faith to defend his budget plan, which opponents claimed would hurt the poor.

Donohue talked more about this tale of two Catholics on CBN Newswatch, Aug. 17. Click play for his comments on the different beliefs between Biden and Ryan.
