According to a new interview on Monday, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI broke his silence on Joe Biden, criticizing him for being “in continuity” with the Democrat Party’s pro-abortion stance.
Breitbart News reports:
Asked his impression of Joe Biden, only the second Catholic U.S. president after John F. Kennedy, Benedict expressed some hesitation.
“It’s true, he’s Catholic and observant and personally he is against abortion,” he said. “But as president, he tends to present himself in continuity with the line of the Democratic Party, and on gender politics we have not yet fully understood what his position is.”
Also in the interview, Pope Benedict XVI revealed that his stepping down from the papacy in 2013 “was not the result of coercion or made under outside pressure but was made freely,” according to Breitbart News.
