On Monday, Notre Dame President Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C. released a statement condemning the 46th Commander-in-Chief, Joe Biden, for revoking the Mexico City Policy, which protects American taxpayers from funding abortions abroad.
“‘The degree of progress of a civilization,’ Pope Francis reminds us, ‘is measured by its ability to protect life, especially in its most fragile stages.’ For that reason, I was deeply disappointed that President Biden elected to repeal limits on taxpayer funding of organizations overseas that promote or perform abortions,” wrote Rev. Jenkins.
Jenkins also opined on Biden’s embrace of “throwaway culture,” which likely means regarding his increasing hostility toward religious believers and people of faith in our country.
Rev. Jenkins wrote, “Our nation truly serves humanity by resisting a throwaway culture and providing genuine compassion, care and love for women and children in need at home and abroad.”
Other religious leaders, such as the Archbishop of Oregon, have also rebuked Biden’s anti-life stance, while the liberal media loves to brand Biden as a “devout Catholic.”
Some have invoked Matthew 7:15-20 to describe the “devoutness” of Biden. The passage reads, in part: “You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.”
