More than 300 faith leaders have endorsed the Joe Biden-Kamala Harris ticket for president and vice president, respectively. Those leaders, assembled by something called Faith 2020, accuse Biden and Harris of possessing "moral clarity." How dare they?

The Biden-Harris ticket and the Democratic platform they are running on endorses abortion right up until birth. How's that for moral clarity? Both Biden and Harris fought like mad to incarcerate thousands of minorities on non-violent drug charges, including marijuana charges, yet Harris has admitted to using marijuana. Is that clarity of morals enough for you? 

These preachers say the Biden-Harris ticket will “restore the soul of this nation.” Perhaps, if you like creepy guys sniffing your daughters and rubbing their wet, hairy legs against your kids in the pool. Yucko! 

Faith 2020 describes itself as “a big-tent multi-faith coalition of American faith leaders” spanning several different religions, including Christianity, Judaism, Sikhism, and Islam.

The Daily Wire reports Faith 2020 members such as Union Theological Seminary "made headlines last year when photos circulated depicting their students confessing their 'climate sins' to plants in the school’s chapel." 

Daily Wire notes "other prominent people on the list include Nadia Bolz-Weber, a Lutheran pastor who founded a pro-LGBT church in Colorado, and Robert E. Lee IV, who is the great-great-great nephew of his namesake and left the ministry to become a Black Lives Matter supporter."

With moral clarity like that who can resist the Biden-Harris ticket? But endorsements are a dime a dozen. Politicians celebrate the ones they think might help them and ignore the rest. So far I've seen no celebrations from the Biden camp over this one so it is likely one they will simply ignore it.

After all, no one wants to be accused of having moral clarity by a bunch of loons anyway.
