Joe Biden’s bumbling presidential campaign is hanging on by a thread.
His candidacy has been plagued by one gaffe after another.
And Biden stepped in it again when he said something about Pope Francis that left many Catholics dumbfounded.
Joe Biden, the so-called moderate in the 2020 election, has moved to the Left in a desperate attempt to curry favor with the far-Left progressives who have seized control of the party.
Biden recently flip-flopped on the Hyde Amendment, which currently prevents taxpayer dollars from directly paying for abortions.
Biden is pro-choice, which puts him in conflict with his Irish Catholic roots.
And because of that stance, he was recently denied communion.
Life Site News reports:
Father Robert E. Morey of St. Anthony Catholic Church in Florence, South Carolina followed Canon 915 during Sunday morning Mass by refusing Biden Holy Communion.
Sadly, this past Sunday, I had to refuse Holy Communion to former Vice President Joe Biden,” Fr. Morey told the Florence Morning News.
“Holy Communion signifies we are one with God, each other and the Church,” he continued. “Our actions should reflect that.”
“Any public figure who advocates for abortion places himself or herself outside of Church teaching.”
During a Thursday FOX & Friends appearance, New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan defended Fr. Morey while also saying he personally wouldn’t deny Biden Communion.
Biden was stunned by Fr. Morey’s decision and remarked, “It’s not a position that I’ve found anywhere else, including from the Holy Father, who gives me Communion,”
This has been puzzling for some Catholics, because despite his Leftist roots and coziness toward socialist policies, Pope Francis been reliably and staunchly pro-life.
Pope Francis recently said of abortion:
“Last century, the whole world was scandalized by what the Nazis did to purify the race. Today, we do the same thing but with white gloves.”
That doesn’t jibe with Biden’s account at all.
Nevertheless, Biden’s views on abortion are evidence of how religious liberals have strayed away from their faith.
For the Left, politics supersedes everything else.
Was the priest right to deny communion to Biden?
