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. 

What are your thoughts on Pope Benedict’s assessment of Joe Biden on abortion?

SO we all get a free pass if we are following policy of the Democrat policy over Gods policy.

Roger that. Thanks for that clarification.

More BS. Failed to support an anti abortion President for fear of loosing donations. Abandoned innocent lives for money. Deserves to burn in hell. Too little to late. He is now responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent lives for the next four years and possibly forever. Had a great chance to stop the slaughter and did nothing. More concerned about money. Doesn’t deserve to be pope. Should resign immediately and let someone who will protect children run the church.

He is not the Pope currently. But that doesn’t absolve him from what he has said or done.
And the current Pope has not said much as far as I know. They expect us to be “faithful” Catholics and follow the laws of the Church but Catholic democrats can get away with whatever.

Melissa you hit it right on ! All abortionists will someday have to answer to our lord for breaking one of the most important commandments “thou shall not kill” let alone a helpless infant in there mothers womb. As far as biden is concerned he is neither a catholic or practicing catholic Benedict! Grow a set and call a mortal sin a mortal sin!!! And that is for the socialist so called current pope too GROW A SET!! God have mercy on us all and the holy spirit give us strength to keep up the fight against evil it is everywhere 🙏 JMJ.

For him to claim Biden personally is against abortion is an idiotic statement to make. He is clearly in support of abortion as evidenced by his votes while a senator and his support of Obama’s statement in his support of abortion.
I am totally sick and tired also of listening to the crap that Biden is a ‘devout Catholic’. He is anything but.

So personally believing abortion is wrong and supporting the party line of pro-abortion is okay. Makes no sense. Either one or the other cant have it both ways.
I would rather be consistent in my Catholic teachings and then trust Gods judgement, not basing any belief on any political party line. If Biden were as true a catholic as the media would like to portray him then he would not be a democrat. Bottom line. Cant see how you can square pro abortion with the Catholic teaching of helping others etc.

I feel the Pope should step up to the plate regarding President Biden. You can’t have your cake and eat it too. If he is Catholic he can’t support the left agenda of abortion and insane sexual agenda…he either needs to be Catholic all the way or be removed from the Catholic Church—but that is my opionion.

Sending people into war then when a soldier dies in battle kidnapping the female children and wives and pimping them out in the basement of the Church! As well as stealing the soldiers land and selling it! News flash RETARDS Mary’s body was a vessel in which Jesus was born, she herself does not deserve the praise you numb nuts give her, taking glory from GOD and Jesus is not appreciated by GOD!

Rather incoherent diatribe here. If you are talking about Christ in the Temple getting rid of the merchants there, He was right to get them out of God’s house. Remember, however, these people were not Catholics, not even Christian at that time. They were Jews. This was a Jewish Temple and he was a Jewish man who saw what was happening, knew it was wrong and did something about it.

For the Pope not to speak out about Biden’s claims to be a devout Catholic, is shameful. Biden clearly is pro abortion or he would not support it and add that being a Catholic prevents him from jumping in that wagon. That our Pope protects Biden on his claim to be a catholic in good standing is unbelievable.

And he does not “understand” Biden’s own words that there’s “at least three genders”? Let me tell you what I do not understand: why Biden was not excommunicated 40 years ago?

What am I doing in the Catholic Church if it is so wishy-washy about something that was a mortal sin a few years ago? The doctrines of my faith were so explicit and cut and dry that a devout Catholic did not question them. Now a past & present Pope trying to stay within the political framework of the liberal/socialist dogma are NOT explicitly defaming abortion. What the hell is going on? Is it time to bow out of the church and keep my own faith to myself and let the popes fail on their own?

He is therefore in favor of murder of a living and breathing human child. No if ands or buts. A firm stand should be taken by all of the Catholic Church. Anything else is a fallacy of Catholic Faith.

Biden goes against the Catholic church on his abortion and homosexual
stance, so it’s questionable. To put politics before God is wrong.
The first Commandment says “thou shalt have no other gods before me”……..What he’s doing is putting the democratic party before God. not to mention he supports MURDER of the unborn babies, up to the time of delivery, and he upholds & supports the “abominable homosexuals”. 3 very serious sins. He’s going against GOD.
