Recently, Kansas City Archbishop Joseph Naumann ripped Joe Biden for parading around as a “devout Catholic” while he supports policies that are in astronomical contrast to Catholic teaching.
“The president should stop defining himself as a devout Catholic, and acknowledge that his view on abortion is contrary to Catholic moral teaching,” Naumann said.
“It would be a more honest approach from him to say he disagreed with his Church on this important issue and that he was acting contrary to Church teaching,” the archbishop added.
The Daily Caller reports:
The Catholic Church teaches that abortion is “a crime against human life,” “constitutes a grave offense” and that a person who obtains an abortion is automatically excommunicated from the Catholic Church.
“When he says he is a devout Catholic, we bishops have the responsibility to correct him,” he added. “Although people have given this president power and authority, he cannot define what it is to be a Catholic and what Catholic moral teaching is.”
The Kansas City archbishop said that Biden is “usurping the role of the bishops and confusing people” by acting as though faithful Catholics can support abortion.
“The bishops need to correct him, as the president is acting contrary to the Catholic faith,” he added.
Biden has already funded foreign abortions through taxpayer dollars with his policies in the first few weeks of his administration, as well as promising to remove all protections that keep women safe pertaining to abortion.
