Biden’s Catholic faith is in question.
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is now considering whether or not to prohibit Catholics, such as President Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, from receiving Eucharist.
The USCCB is expected to hold a vote soon on the guidelines to clarify the meaning of Communion which could ban the acknowledgment of “Catholics” such as Biden and Pelosi over their stance on abortion.
According to Yahoo, several top ranking bishops will meet in Baltimore this to cast their votes. If they vote yes, they could remove the eligibility of prominent Catholics whose decisions “run afoul of church teaching to receive Communion.”
The Catholic newsletter The Pillar recently claimed that Catholic leaders who live “in a state of mortal sin” without having remorse for their decisions should not receive Communion.
Pope Francis recent pleaded with U.S. bishops to show “compassion and tenderness” with Catholic leaders such as President Biden and Pelosi over their political stance on abortion rights.
“He’s gone on record as saying abortion is a fundamental right while presenting himself as an exemplary Catholic,” Olson told The Associated Press. “The issue of public confusion is really at stake here.” I agree with Bishop Olson regarding these comments about President Biden.
