DISINFO: One of Biden’s priorities is to attack Orthodox faith and traditional morality


Biden will resume the strategy of manipulating and destabilizing the world. Faith, especially the Orthodox one, traditional morality, then nationalism, sovereign ideas and everything that opposes the planetary mix that “progressivism” wants to impose – will all become the target.


The claim is a part of a pro-Kremlin narrative targetting Joe Biden, presenting him as an enemy of Christian values. See here a similar case about Joe Biden as a supporter of the Islamic radicals and a persona ready to start new wars.

No evidence given. In its foreign policy plans, exposed on his website, there are no mentions that would allude to the states in which Christians or people of other religions live. In his plan for the American Catholic community, Joe Biden said: “I’m a practicing Catholic. I believe faith is a gift. And the first obligation we all have is, ‘Love your God,’ the second one is, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ … ‘Treat people with dignity.’ Everyone’s entitled to dignity, that’s a basic tenet in my household”.
