Biden* Has a ‘Seriously Strained’ Relationship with the U.S. Bishops
Quote:Catholic League President Bill Donohue said this week that President Biden has a serious problem with the U.S. bishops, which is not going away.

The upcoming celebration of Easter, Christianity’s most solemn feast, underscores the president’s “rocky” relationship with many bishops,” Dr. Donohue said in an essay Thursday.

“It’s time for President Biden to stop living a lie,” Donohue noted, in reference to Biden’s continued participation in Catholic sacraments while overtly promoting abortion on demand and other evils.

In his essay, Donohue cites no fewer than nine U.S. bishops who have been highly critical of Biden’s situation, several of whom have insisted the president should cease receiving Holy Communion at Mass until he repents of his abortion position.

The former head of the Vatican’s supreme court, Cardinal Raymond Burke said Biden should not receive Communion because he is not a Catholic “in good standing,” Donohue noted.

For his part, the president of the U.S. Bishops’ Conference, Archbishop José Gomez, warned that Biden supports policies that “attack some fundamental values we hold dear.”

The president “has pledged to pursue certain policies that would advance moral evils and threaten human life and dignity, most seriously in the areas of abortion, contraception, marriage, and gender, Gomez stated. “Of deep concern is the liberty of the Church and the freedom of believers to live according to their consciences.”

As Breitbart News reported last December, former Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput said that Biden’s support for gay marriage and abortion rights meant that he “should stop defining himself as a devout Catholic” and “should not receive Holy Communion.”

“Public figures who identify as ‘Catholic’ give scandal to the faithful when receiving Communion by creating the impression that the moral laws of the Church are optional,” Chaput wrote. “And bishops give similar scandal by not speaking up publicly about the issue and danger of sacrilege.”

Donohue noted that Archbishop Joseph Naumann and Bishop David Malloy issued a joint statement sharply criticizing Biden for promoting abortion overseas.

“It is grievous that one of President Biden’s first official acts actively promotes the destruction of human lives in developing nations,” they said, adding that this measure “is antithetical to reason, violates human dignity, and is incompatible with Catholic teaching.”

In February, Naumann declared that Biden “should stop defining himself as a devout Catholic” because he is “100% pro-choice on abortion.” Naumann also called on his fellow bishops “to correct him, as the president is acting contrary to the Catholic faith.”

Shortly afterward, Bishop Joseph Strickland of Tyler, Texas, stated that “Biden is not a real Catholic,” and Tennessee Bishop Richard Stika called Biden “dishonest” for bragging about his Catholic background.

A week ago, Donohue added, Springfield Bishop Thomas J. Paprocki said Biden “should not present himself” for Communion because of his long history of supporting abortion rights.

If politicians are “living in a way or holding positions that are contrary to church teaching, then the Minister of Communion has to deny them the sacrament,” stated Paprocki, a canon lawyer.

Cardinal Burke followed up by saying that “a person who claims to be Catholic and yet promotes in such an open, obdurate, and aggressive way a crime like procured abortion is in the state, at least, of apostasy,” the penalty for which is “excommunication.”

“As we approach Easter, the bishops, as well as millions of practicing Catholics, are not going to have their concerns about Biden allayed by photos of him clinging to his rosary beads,” Donohue concluded.

“He cannot at once declare himself to be a ‘devout Catholic’ while at the same time supporting abortion-on-demand, gay marriage, sex transitioning for minors, and the war on religious liberty,” he said.

When it comes to puppet Biden*, he is already beholden to masters that definitely do not include the Catholic Church.

He should have no relationship with Catholic bishops. He should have been excommunicated by now along with Pelosi.

...and THAT GOES for every catholic that votes for the Demons. They are the pick and choose "Christians" with no shame or repentence concerning the sin that is the Demoncraptic Party.

I could also admonish the church itself for non-Biblical traditions and actions too. So they need to look at themselves as well.

RE: Biden* Has a ‘Seriously Strained’ Relationship with the U.S. Bishops
Quote:Voters are split mostly along party lines regarding how genuinely “religious” President Joe Biden actually is despite his professed Roman Catholic faith, according to the results of a recent poll released last week.

The Pew Research Center asked 12,055 Americans between March 1 and March 7 their views on a wide range of questions about the religious faith of Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.

Biden’s faith especially has been a point of contention as several high-ranking Catholic clergy have called for the Church to discipline him for his abortion views by denying him Holy Communion.

Fifty-eight percent of respondents were able to correctly identify that Biden is a Roman Catholic. He is only the second Catholic president, after former President John F. Kennedy. Thirty-one percent were unsure of his faith, while 6% identified him as Protestant, 3% said he was atheist, and 1% said he adheres to an “other religion” not listed. An additional 1% said his religion is “something else.”

Two-thirds of those polled, by contrast, were unable to name Harris’ religion, with just 12% correctly naming the self-identified Baptist as a Protestant. Harris’ faith became a flashpoint during her vice presidential debate with former Vice President Mike Pence, who pointed out how she attacked Judge Brian Buescher during his 2018 confirmation for being a member of the Catholic Knights of Columbus, which opposes abortion and same-sex marriage.

“Joe Biden and I are both people of faith, and it’s insulting to suggest that we would knock anyone for their faith,” Harris scolded in response.

The rest of the survey is largely divided along party lines. As Pew reported:

Even among Biden’s fellow Catholics, partisanship permeates views of Biden’s religion. Nine-in-ten Democratic and Democratic-leaning Catholics say they think Biden is at least somewhat religious, including half who say he is “very” religious. Among Republican and Republican-leaning Catholics, by contrast, a 56% majority say Biden is “not too” or “not at all” religious. And while eight-in-ten Catholic Democrats say they think Biden discusses his faith “about the right amount,” barely half as many Catholic Republicans say the same (42%).

The Catholics polled regarding whether Biden should be denied Communion because of his abortion views also split according to party, with 55% of Republican-leaning Catholics in favor of withholding the sacrament, and nine-in-10 Catholic Democrats opposed to such a disciplinary measure.

In an interview published last month in The Atlantic, Kansas City Archbishop Joseph Naumann called Biden’s abortion stance “a point of confusion” that is at odds with the teachings of the Catholic Church. Naumann said in part:

If a non-Catholic Christian wants to enter into full communion with the Church, they’re asked to make a profession where they say, “I believe and profess all that the holy Catholic Church believes, teaches, and proclaims to be revealed by God.” Each time we receive the Eucharist, we’re also saying that profession. That’s why it becomes a point of confusion. Obviously, the president doesn’t believe what we believe about the sacredness of human life, or he wouldn’t be taking the actions that he is. And yet, he continues to receive the Eucharist. We can’t judge his heart. But we consider the action itself a grave moral evil.

This is probably good news since most Americans don't like Catholics in the first place.

I wouldn't call it good news but I would say your statement is otherwise correct. A lot of anti-Catholic sentiment in America and even in a prior post on this very own thread. But hey, that's something not focused on in this country. People shooting at nuns, vandalism at Catholic churches, etc. get brushed under the rug.

Wow, typical liberal hatred and stupid response. Catholics have experienced hatred in this country far before those events, and even though it was admittedly poorly handled, it is not a widespread issue within the church. Moderators need to ban your dumb @ss.

Im Catholic and even I have issues with the church. You have to admit that a lot of their traditions are pretty antiquated.

I'm not saying that they should be persecuted but I can understand why they are not well liked.

This country was founded by people who were essentially against the Catholics.
