On Wednesday, the Washington Post’s Michelle Boorstein reported on the U.S. Conference of Catholic bishops pondering whether Joe Biden should be allowed to receive the Eucharist, which is believed by Catholics to be the real body and blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.  

In a Washington Post tweet sharing the article, it says, “A rising group of right-wing U.S. Catholic bishops is colliding with a very Catholic president who supports abortion rights.”

The National Review’s Alexandra DeSanctis writes:

Though Boorstein doesn’t refer to Biden as “very Catholic” in the piece, she suggests that it is “powerful to millions of American Catholics” to have “a U.S. president who attends Mass week after week and talks about his faith.”

In reality, Biden’s Catholicism has very little do with whether he attends Mass or talks publicly about being Catholic, as any reporter familiar with Catholic teaching would know. What some leaders and countless Catholics take issue with is Biden’s active support for unlimited elective abortion, funded by the U.S. taxpayer — a set of policies that blatantly contradicts the Church’s unequivocal condemnation of abortion as an intentional act that takes an innocent human life.

Rather than noting the Catholic Church’s non-negotiable teaching in defense of the sanctity of every human life from the moment of conception or explaining that Biden’s position on the subject contradicts his professed faith, Boorstein instead describes his support for abortion merely as “a source of shame” for some American Catholics.

The controversy within the U.S. Catholic Church over Biden’s active pursuit of abortion policies that flout Church teaching has nothing to do with shame or with the “loud right wing of the church,” as Boorstein puts it. And it isn’t, as she suggests, a question of “abortion purity.”

The debate within the Church instead is over whether a Catholic public figure — indeed, the President of the United States — should face public remonstrance for enacting a political agenda that undermines a fundamental principle of the faith he claims to practice.

What are your thoughts on Washington Post referring to pro-abortion Joe Biden as “very Catholic”?

It’s a mockery for him to receive communion. He shouldn’t be allowed. Used to be divorce kept you from the sacraments, baby killers are much worse. Biden is a hypocrite.

There are no “right wing” or “left wing” Bishops, or at least there should not be. The teachings of the Church on Life Issues are consistent. As far as Biden being “very Catholic”, that a crock of bull. I could face Mecca and pray three times a day from the Koran, but that does not make me Muslim.

It is harmful to unelected President Bidens soul for him to continue receiving the Holy Eucharist. He brings damnation on himself every time he is given Our Lord in Communion while supporting the agendas that he does. His Bishop should not allow him to continue in this manner else he, too, will be responsible for Joseph Bidens soul.

What you said is wrong. Only Obiden is responsible fore his soul knowing he is supposed to ask forgiveness before he receives Holy Eucharist as you put it .

I agree with Jaqueline. The bishop knows that Biden has not changed his belief on what he backs. This could easily be proven if he did. Giving Biden Holy Communion is contradictory to what the Bible teaches. As a spiritual leader, this bishop is leading Biden astray. Why should Biden change his attitude if he thinks he’s right with God (?)–as is shown by the bishop’s actions.

He’s not a Catholic. Not even a little bit. He may have been 60 years ago. Simply going to the building doesn’t make someone a Catholic. It’s also clear that he believes the Democrat party more than his religion.

Biden, like Pelosi is a Cafeteria Catholic. Anyone who believes their claims of being DEVOUT Catholics, simply doesn’t understand that you cannot promote abortions and be a Devout Catholic…they can go to Mass twice a day every day, and that makes no difference if they are opposed to the primary teaching and doctrine of their faith. Period.
That’s a fact. Their political beliefs and positions are catagorically opposed to Catholic Doctrine, and in the Church’s eye you cannot say you believe in Catholic Faith issues, and act otherwise.How they choose to live their lives are nobody’s business but theirs, BUT don’t pretend how DEVOUT you are and wave your Religion in everybody’s faith and then act against it. Reminds me of Bill Clinton coming out of Church on Easter Sunday waving his bible at the adoring crowds on his way back to the White House to play wit Monica.

Biden is a devout Democrat. Calling yourself something does not make you that. Your actions tell us who you are and killing unborn people in the womb is not Catholic. Causing people to die on their way to and across the border is not Catholic either.

Doesn’t Catholicism teach that abortion (murder) and bigotry (hate) are sins? How can one be “very Catholic”, or any other religion, when they believe in murder and hate? I guess PINO Joe is a HypoCatholic; Catholic when it helps him.

I’m not a practicing Catholic but know that pro abortion is a mortal sin. He has a chance to stand up for the unborn and put money ahead of everything. The Catholic church needs to put up or shut up. Can’t have it both ways. Where is the pope????

Joe Biden is one person I would never consider a good catholic. First we do not believe in murder, which he does. We do not believe in corruption and destruction which he has proven to have been doing for years and years . Mob family is certainly ont encouraged either which Joey has. Along with his horrendous lying over and over again. Just my thoughts.

Biden favoring and defending abortion a Roman Catholic? I’m quite sure Satan himself claims to be Roman Catholic. My sainted Mother used to warn us that the Devil was more active in the Church than outside it. He probably uses people like Joe Blow.

This “headline” seems to insinuate that Joe Biden is “more Catholic” than CATHOLIC BISHOPS who believe that murder IS murder.

I agree with Fred; Biden should have ben excommunicated the day he took office. I grew up Catholic, but belong to another denomination now. Biden is about as Catholic as his “good friend” Putin. Since he probably goes to bed so late I wonder if he ever has time to pray the rosary, if he knows how. My uncle went to mas every day, but since my aunt had been married before, he never took communion. Neither he, nor DR. Jill should be allowed to either. One priest did deny him communion when he was on the campaign trail, so why won’t the one in Washington do the same?

When did doctors decide that aborted fetal tissue was something they needed for research? What did they use before?

I just read my post and found an error, I meant to say that since Biden went to bed so EARLY, I wonder if he has time to pray the rosary. My grand-mother prayed her rosary every night when she went to bed, and if she woke up during the night, she would start back up where her fingers were on her rosary.

I keep remembering things from when I was a little girl about taking Communion – you had to have gone to confession first. If that is still the case, then Biden should not even go inside a church!
