Lots of politicians even on the Left profess that they’re Christians.
Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden are two of the most prominent Democrats making the claim.
But Joe Biden got taken to task after claiming he’s “very Catholic” and you won’t believe by who.
The Catholic church continues to battle against pro-abortion politicians participating in communion.
Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden are among two of the most hypocritical politicians out there.
These “Catholics” push blatant anti-Catholic rhetoric but claim to be “devout” in their faith.
And now the “very Catholic” Joe Biden just got taken to task by an Archbishop.
Joe Biden says he’s a Catholic and that he believes in the teachings of the Catholic church, but like many on the Left, his actions clearly state otherwise.
Given the liberal nature of the Catholic church’s current Pope, Pope Francis, many Catholics have paid little attention to the fact that Biden is pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage, and clearly anti-family.
Fortunately, however, there is a group of Catholic leaders who are still fighting to uphold the Church’s teachings and shine a light on the hypocrisy of folks like Biden and Nancy Pelosi.
One such leader is San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone.
In a recent interview with Fox News, the Archbishop stated that Catholics who push the pro-abortion agenda should be denied Holy Communion.
Archbishop Cordileone stated that a person cannot support murdering innocent children through abortion and be considered a faithful Catholic.
The idea flies in the face of the entire Catholic doctrine.
“This (the right to life) is the most fundamental human right. Everyone who cooperates in that is involving themselves in a very serious sin,” Cordileone stated.
Cordileone is House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s hometown bishop and has been very vocal in the past about his opposition to her support of abortion.
In a letter, the Archbishop wrote “If you find that you are unwilling or unable to abandon your advocacy for abortion, you should not come forward to receive Holy Communion.”
This statement was, in no uncertain terms, directed at Pelosi.
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops just voted overwhelmingly to draft a document on “Eucharistic coherence.”
Archbishop Joseph Naumann, chair of the conference’s committee on Pro-Life activities, denounced prominent figures like Biden and Pelosi who “flaunt their Catholicity.”
The Left’s hypocrisy is on full display.
It is absolutely ridiculous that thousands of years of Catholic teachings are being debated because the President of the United States, and many of his cohorts, are deciding they want to “bend the rules.”
