Joe Biden loves to tout his purported devout Catholic beliefs.
Yet, for his entire career he has worked against the Church’s teachings.
And now he could be kicked out of the Catholic Church after a top Vatican official revealed one secret.
The Catholic Church draws a clear line on abortion.
Yet, pro-abortion politicians like Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi often tout their Catholic faith, while directly disobeying church teachings on abortion.
For Biden, this has come back to bite him, like in 2019 when a South Carolina Priest denied him Holy Communion during Mass, which is the policy of his bishop.
The priest made his thoughts known when asked about the decision by Florence Morning News.
“Holy Communion signifies we are one with God, each other and the Church. Our actions should reflect that,” Father Robert Morey said, adding that “as a priest, it is my responsibility to minister to those souls entrusted to my care, and I must do so even in the most difficult situations. I will keep Mr. Biden in my prayers.”
Many left-wing figures in the Church, and likely Pope Francis himself, disagree with his decision, and Biden regularly receives communion in his Washington, D.C. church.
But Cardinal Raymond Burke, who is perhaps the most vocal Vatican figure in opposition of left-wing encroachment in the Church, recently stated that according to canon law, politicians who support abortion are automatically excommunicated by the Church.
Burke said that those who “publicly and obstinately violate the moral law” are in a state of apostasy, and thus must not be permitted to receive Holy Communion.
He made this statement in a post on his website titled “Statement on the Reception of Holy Communion by Those Who Persist in Public Grave Sin.”
Burke, who is an expert on canon law, quotes directly from canon law to make the argument, writing: “Those who have been excommunicated or interdicted after the imposition or declaration of the penalty and others obstinately persevering in grave sin are not to be admitted to holy communion.”
The Cardinal then states that priests and bishops must “instruct and admonish the faithful” who are in such a state, in order to prevent offences against God through unworthy reception of Communion, which may lead to “their own eternal harm and, likewise, leading others into error and even sin in such a serious matter.”
While he doesn’t mention Biden by name, it is implied that it is written about him, as his ability to receive Holy Communion has become a hot-button issue in the Church, especially since him becoming President.
