Joe Biden is among a number of major Democrat officials who claim they are Catholic.
But, like Nancy Pelosi, he has come under scrutiny for his pro-abortion stances.
And what one Catholic Cardinal just said about Joe Biden could force him to leave the church.
Earlier this year, the mainstream media largely ignored a story where Joe Biden was denied Holy Communion at a Catholic Church in South Carolina.
The priest declared he could not serve Holy Communion to a person knowingly engaged in mortal sin, which Biden is through his support for pro-abortion legislation.
And Cardinal Raymond Burke just came out praising the priest, saying he “performed a great act of charity on the part of Mr. Biden.”
The South Carolina priest who denied Holy Communion to former vice president and 2020 hopeful Joe Biden “performed a great act of charity on the part of Mr. Biden,” Cardinal Raymond Burke said.
In a recent video interview with Tom McKenna, Founder and President of Catholic Action for Faith and Family, Burke supported Fr. Robert E. Morey’s upholding of canon law when Biden tried to receive Communion during Mass at his South Carolina parish. Burke also offered his counsel to priests and bishops who find themselves facing public figures who approach to receive Holy Communion despite expressing beliefs contrary to the teachings and morals of the Catholic Church.
Biden supports and advocates for taxpayer-funded abortion on demand. He has also officiated a same-sex “wedding.”
Burke is the former Prefect of the Apostolic Signatura, the Vatican’s high court.
“When there’s a member of the faithful who is publicly committing a grave [sin] as, for instance, is Mr. Biden by his support among other things of the practice of procured abortion, the priest is obliged to counsel the person not to approach to receive Holy Communion,” said Burke. “And if the person approaches to receive Holy Communion, [the priest] is to refuse it.”
Cardinal Burke previously advocated for refusing to serve Holy Communion to pro-abortion politicians like Nancy Pelosi.
It is a seldom-practiced right for Catholic priests, which Burke argues should be universally used.
Do you think pro-abortion politicians should be denied Holy Communion?
