According to The Federalist, the Vatican held back a statement from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) critical of Joe Biden’s anti-Catholic policy agenda items. The Pope has since allowed the Bishops’ statement to come out, only after his own message fawning over Biden.

I pray that your decisions will be guided by a concern for building a society marked by authentic justice and freedom, together with unfailing respect for the rights and dignity of every person, especially the poor, the vulnerable and those who have no voice. I likewise ask God, the source of all wisdom and truth, to guide your efforts to foster understanding, reconciliation and peace within the United States and among the nations of the world in order to advance the universal common good,” wrote Pope Francis.

The USCCB was much less restrained in their rebuke of Biden’s anti-life and anti-family agenda, with Conference President Archbishop José H. Gomez writing, “I must point out that our new 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. Of deep concern is the liberty of the Church and the freedom of believers to live according to their consciences.” 

According to The Federalist report, “Those who allegedly objected to the release include Cardinal Joseph Tobin of Newark, New Jersey, and Cardinal Blase Cupich of Chicago, among other unnamed bishops.” 

It should be noted that nowhere in Pope Francis’ statement did he raise the concerns of the Catholic Church that Biden’s policies would be destructive to fundamental church teaching, most notably regarding the sanctity of human life.

Finally! After a lifetime of defending, supporting, and participating in the Church that St. Peter founded following the teachings of Christ, I can honestly say I am no longer Catholic.
I stayed silent, angry, and supportive even diring the cover up of the pedophilia perpetrated by a few priests. Even though I completely disagreed with the Vatican approach to this problen and aberration. Nevertheless, I stayed faithful hoping in the end justice would prevail.
However, expressing support and platitudes to a politician who stauchly supports abortion is besides me. This guy acting as a Pope has no backbone. But, what can you expect from a closet Socialist. This POS of a Pope is neither a Pope, nor represents the values of my faith. HE needs to go.

The Apostle to the Romans was Paul not Peter. Paul founded the church of Rome. But Catholics do have a strange religion and leaders that seem to know nothing about Christ.

I and many of my friends are Catholics but we do not approve of Francis having been elected to be our pope. He is a socialist and stands for issues that are contrary to Catholic tenets. He should stay out of our politics. If he is so interested in politics then he should return to his own country where his socialist attitude would be most welcome.

10 years of catholic school with nuns and priests calling abortion a mortal sin and murder and this genius is rewriting God’s Holy Word. The end time is here and a son of satan is in the Vatican and another satan son is in the white house.

Makes me glad to be a Lutheran. Our teachings are almost exactly the same to the Catholic Church, except our Ministers are allowed to marry (and you notice WE hardly had ANY sex scandals!) and we do not aknowledge the Pope.

Just keep it up, Pope! Pretty soon you won’t have a church or its bishops left to speak out against this vile practice, let alone to speak of Christianity! So many have already left the church and your stand on abortion REEKS of utter HYPOCRISY. You’ll never keep members in any large numbers when you go against some of the very teachings that have always been in the church. You get nothing from me but my contempt!

In 1948, The Catholic Church declared for the second time in 100 years that anyone who is a Marxist/Communist is OUTSIDE The Catholic Church!! There never has been a Pope Francis – Jorge has been OUTSIDE The Catholic Church most of his life!!!!! “Just for grins”, Rome ceased being Catholic in 1963/1964!!!!!

These Democrat politicians are incredible hypocrites. Biden and Pelosi both claim to be practicing Catholics but not only believe in late term abortion but call it Woman’s Health Care and a Right. Since when is murder considered Health Care. Supposedly
a woman’s right to choose. No one wants to admit that this pregnant woman has already made her choice.
She chose to be irresponsible by having unprotected sex. But then, who ever thought that Liberals cared anything about personal responsibility.

Too many of you critics are “throwing out the baby with the bath water!” For those of you raised as Catholics, you should have learned somewhere along the way that the only time any Pope is “infallible” is when he speaks Ex Cathedra …from the Chair of Peter. Any other time he speaks he is voicing a personal opinion … as in the case of Biden! What many baptized Catholics do not seem to realize is that they have been committed to Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and not to a pope. They are human and thereby capable of error and sin. As a devout Catholic, educated in my faith, I realize that there will be bad people at the helm at times (as in government). However, I know that the Church will always be Holy because Jesus Christ is her true Head and Jesus is undeniably holy!!! We Catholics do know Jesus…and for Him alone and His legacy do I and so many others remain Catholic until death. I am now 86 years young and have lived through many popes…some saints and others mediocre. JESUS IS MY SAVIOR AND IT IS HE WHOM I FOLLOW AND AM BLESSED WITH EUCHARIST AND DAILY MASS, AS WELL AS ALL THE OTHER SACRAMENTS JESUS LEFT FOR US.

You’re more than welcome to join our Lutheran Church! It;s almost the same as the Catholic Church except our Pastors are allowed to marry, we only have two Sacraments, divorce IS permitted, but ONLY on the grounds of adultery or domestic abuse, NO OTHER REASON, and we do NOT aknowledge the Pope!
Other than that, it;s exactly the same. Come join, there;s plenty of room.

I have asked many times that Biden and Pelosi be excommunicated because of their evil claim of being devout Catholics when in fact they are not Catholics at all. I now believe the same excommunication should apply to Francis, our evil socialist faux pope.

Don’t Abandon the Church, the Catholic Church has not changed, sometimes the men who run it become misguided and or corrupt over time but the Church and the faith have not changed. Any time you have humans involved you run the risk of imperfection or immorality or corruption.
