The Hill reports:
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden called the attacks on his religion at the Republican National Convention “preposterous” on Thursday. The former vice president responded to convention speakers taking several jabs at how he practices his Catholicism, including from former Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz who called Biden a “Catholic in name only” on Wednesday.
“I think it’s kind of preposterous to a guy who hardly ever darkens the door of a church,” Biden told MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” in a reference to President Trump. “But the point of the matter is I’m a practicing Catholic, I don’t proselytize about it, I never miss mass,” he added. “It’s part of who I am. It’s what gets me through the really difficult times in my life, and I believe it very strongly.”
