TV Ad Contrasts JFK’s Condemnation of Attacks on Churches with Biden’s Inaction

A new television ad contrasts the ways in which two Catholic presidents, John F. Kennedy and Joe Biden, have responded to attacks on churches.

The seven-figure television and digital ad campaign exposes Biden’s failure to protect Catholic churches and pregnancy centers, in the wake of the leaked draft Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, after which the number of attacks on churches and pregnancy resource centers soared.

Sponsored by CatholicVote, a national faith-based advocacy organization, the ad contrasts Kennedy’s public condemnation of church-burning and promise to bring those responsible to justice, with Pres. Biden’s “notable silence, and even encouragement of continued protests,” a press statement by the organization explains:

“In the months following the leaked draft Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, attacks on churches and pregnancy resource centers have multiplied.

“Pro-abortion domestic terrorists have claimed responsibility for many of the 64 incidents against pro-life organizations and 69 incidents against Catholic churches.

“To date, not a single person has been arrested and Biden’s DOJ has prosecuted zero individuals responsible for these attacks.”

“Ordinary Americans are living in fear, knowing the Biden administration has refused to prioritize or prosecute those targeting churches or pro-life resource centers,” CatholicVote President Brian Burch says in the announcement.

Biden’s inaction “exposes the utter corruption at the highest levels of government, including Biden’s Department of Justice,” Burch says, noting how the DOJ “was quick to investigate concerned parents at school boarding meetings but has not prosecuted a single person responsible for vandalizing or firebombing churches and health centers that serve women in need.”

The 30-second ad will be televised in Washington D.C., Arizona, and Wisconsin. It is available nationally online.
