Joe Biden Denied Communion By Catholic Church For His Views On This...
Former Vice President and 2020 candidate Joe Biden was denied communion at church this past Sunday by the priest.
Rev. Robert Morey said that he denied the sacrament to Biden due to his anti-Christian views on abortion.
Biden has said regarding abortion, "I do not believe we have a right to tell women that they can't control their body. It's a decision between them and their doctor."
According to The Washington Times,
“Sadly, this past Sunday, I had to refuse Holy Communion to former Vice President Joe Biden,” Father Morey, pastor at St. Anthony Catholic Church in Florence, told the Morning News via email. “Holy Communion signifies we are one with God, each other and the Church. Our actions should reflect that. Any public figure who advocates for abortion places himself or herself outside of Church teaching.”
Mr. Biden says he is “personally opposed” to abortion, but insists that this should not affect political stances.
Since declaring his 2020 presidential candidacy, Mr. Biden has said he supports codifying the right to abortion into federal law even if the Supreme Court reverses itself on the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. He also has flip-flopped on his longtime support for the Hyde Amendment, which bars taxpayer funding for the procedure, which the Catholic Church condemns as murder. Mr. Biden said in June that public money should pay for abortions.
The Biden campaign would not confirm to the Florence Morning News that Mr. Biden had attended St. Anthony, but “said if he did attend he did so in a private capacity,” the Morning News wrote.
When asked about it, Biden refused to answer claiming that "I am not going to discuss that. That is just my personal life." Since when does he not talk about his personal life? I seem to remember him talking about his run-ins with the notorious thug "Corn Pop" back in his hay day.
