Joe Biden claims to be a devout Catholic.
Well, if that is true, then why does President Biden support abortion?
As it turns out, the Catholic bishops of the United States are wondering the same thing and might even vote to deny him communion for supporting abortion.
The Daily Wire reported, “U.S. Catholic bishops may decide when they meet in June to toughen their stance on Catholic politicians who publicly support abortion — politicians like President Joe Biden.
Archbishop Joseph Naumann of Kansas City, who is chairman of the USCCB’s Committee on Pro-Life Activities, has publicly and repeatedly rebuked Biden for supporting abortion, going so far as to say the president ‘should stop defining himself as a devout Catholic.’
‘Because President Biden is Catholic, it presents a unique problem for us,’ Naumann told the AP. ‘It can create confusion. … How can he say he’s a devout Catholic and he’s doing these things that are contrary to the church’s teaching?’”
Biden and many of his fellow Democrats are all fully in favor of keeping abortions legal. The Democrats have become so radical on the issue of abortion that some have advocated for the killing of the baby up to the moment of birth. Virginia Governor Ralph Northam took it one step further and even supported killing the baby after it was born.
If this vote goes through, this wouldn’t be the first time Biden was denied communion for his pro-abortion views.
In 2019, a South Carolina priest named Father Morey denied Biden communion.
Father Morey defended his decision by saying:
“Any public figure who advocates for abortion places himself or herself outside of Church teaching. As a priest, it is my responsibility to minister to those souls entrusted to my care, and I must do so even in the most difficult situations. I will keep Mr. Biden in my prayers,”
The Catholic church says the following about abortion in the 1983 Code of Canon Law:
“Those upon whom the penalty of excommunication or interdict has been imposed or declared, and others who obstinately persist in manifest grave sin are not to be admitted to holy communion.”
Pope Benedict XIV once remarked that “Not all moral issues have the same moral weight as abortion and euthanasia. For example, if a Catholic were to be at odds with the Holy Father on the application of capital punishment or on the decision to wage war, he would not for that reason be considered unworthy to present himself to receive Holy Communion. While the Church exhorts civil authorities to seek peace, not war, and to exercise discretion and mercy in imposing punishment on criminals, it may still be permissible to take up arms to repel an aggressor or to have recourse to capital punishment. There may be a legitimate diversity of opinion even among Catholics about waging war and applying the death penalty, but not however with regard to abortion and euthanasia.”
It is about time Biden was called out by members of the Catholic church for his blatantly unbiblical views on abortions.
