The following article, Catholic Bishops Consider Rule to Block Communion for Abortion-Supporting Politicians Like Joe Biden, was first published on Flag And Cross.
On Friday, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) overwhelmingly agreed to formulate a new statement on the receipt of communion by politicians who support radical abortion, gay, and transgender policies.
Democrats, including Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi who claim to be “devout Catholics,” nonetheless support radical abortion policies, and far left policies that advance the hardcore gay agenda that harms our children.
For years, conservative Catholics have urged church officials to block these apostates from receiving the sacrament of the Eucharist (communion) because they openly support policies that directly conflict with church teachings.
Now, the USCCB is preparing to address these very issues hoping to craft a final rule on how to treat politicians who blatantly thumb their nose at the church all while claiming to be members in good standing.
Leftists, though, claim the rules change is all about politics.
According to the New York Times:
Anti-abortion advocates already see political opportunity in the bishops’ plan. The organization Students for Life held rallies in seven cities on Thursday to urge the bishops to vote “yes.” So far, Republicans are “not having much luck demonizing Biden,” so they are testing abortion as a potential issue on which to criticize him, as they did with transgender athletes in youth sports and critical race theory, said Mike Mikus, a political consultant in Pittsburgh who advises Democratic campaigns.
“The point is to mobilize Republicans; it is all a play to the base,” he said.
But the truth is, the church allows its integrity to be damaged by sitting idly by as Democrats who claim to be Catholic to continue defying tenets of the church. The church makes a mockery of itself by doing nothing to punish these apostates and allow them to defy the church at will even as they claim to be members of that church.
Biden is typical of these anti-Catholic Catholics. Biden claims to be a practicing Catholic, but he also unreservedly supports abortion on demand, the gay agenda, and advance of the transgender scheme.
By all rights, Biden should not be allowed to go around claiming he is a strict Catholic even as he violates some of the church’s central teaching.
Denying him communion is the least that the church should do.
