In a new ad for ‘Catholics for Obama,’ Vice President Joe Biden boasts he is a “practicing Catholic” and explains that Obama’s platform matches his understanding of Catholic doctrine.

“As a practicing Catholic like many of you, I was raised in a household where there was absolutely no distinction between the values my mom and dad drilled into us and what I learned from the nuns and priests who educated me,” Biden explains as the camera focuses on a crucifix and a Bible. “We call it Catholic social doctrine: ‘Whatever you do to the least of these, you do for me.’”

Biden explains that Obama fulfills that doctrine through his health care bill and by “lifting the cloud of deportation” off of the children of illegal immigrants.
