Racism is, of course, the unforgivable sin, and the Left's favorite wedge issue to divide and conquer. If there is a Jesus, He sure never came to forgive that sin (I'm stunned at the speed with which so many Christian leaders in America appear to accept this, if at least implicitly).

Likewise, the emergent radical Left would be happy to throw Biden on the trash heap of history, wipe their hands, and say good riddance to a man who committed the worst sins of all in being white, male, Christian and unwilling to call for the eradication and marginalization of all three.
