(ETH) – Democratic Presidential nominee, Joe Biden was recently heard citing Scripture from the Book of Ecclesiastes Chapter 3, when told voters on Tuesday that God is calling the nation to heal from the ravages of the coronavirus pandemic, racial unrest, and political division and claims that he wants to make America “one nation under God again.” Biden stated: “I run to unite this nation, to heal this nation.
I’ve said that from the beginning. It’s badly necessary. The Bible tells us there’s a time to break down and a time to build up, a time to heal. This is that time. God in history has called us to this moment and to this mission,” Biden told voters in Warm Springs, Georgia, a week before Election Day.
“With our voices and our votes, [we] must free ourselves from the forces of darkness, from the forces of division and the forces of yesterday, from the forces that pull us apart, hold us down and hold us back. And if we do so, we’ll once more become one nation under God, indivisible, a nation united, a nation strengthened, a nation healed. That is my goal. That is why I’m running.”
Meanwhile, Biden also has promised to put LGBTQ rights legislation known as the Equality Act, as the top of his priority, hoping to sign what would be considered a landmark civil rights law within 100 days, should he win Tuesday’s election. This should come to no surprise as Biden, emerged as a leading voice for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer rights as vice president under Barack Obama from 2009 to 2017, He also pledged in an interview with the Philadelphia Gay News to expand queer rights internationally by making equality a centerpiece of U.S. diplomacy if he assumes office in January.
