Archbishop Charles Chaput says that Joe Biden is no longer in communion with the Catholic Church due to his stance on abortion and priests should not give him communion. At an event this weekend, Chaput said that Joe Biden “is not in communion with the Catholic faith” and that “any priest who now provides Communion to the president participates in his hypocrisy.” This is one of the strongest condemnations of Joe Biden’s stance on abortion as a self-professed catholic and it comes from a very high ranking voice in the Church. Biden has promoted abortions up to birth repeatedly since the Dobbs decision overturning Roe v. Wade and his introduced multiple policies and supported legislation to implement abortions up to birth nationwide.
The archbishop continued: “Mr. Biden’s apostasy on the abortion issue is only the most repugnant example. He’s not alone. But in a sane world, his unique public leadership would make — or should make — public consequences unavoidable.”
“When you freely break communion with the Church of Jesus Christ and her teachings, you can’t pretend to be in communion when it’s convenient,” Chaput said.
“That’s a form of lying. Mr. Biden is not in communion with the Catholic faith. And any priest who now provides Communion to the president participates in his hypocrisy.”
Facing the prospect of his party losing the House and the Senate, pro-abortion President Joe Biden has ramped his pro-abortion rhetoric as the mid-terms draw near.
