President Joe Biden is a devout Catholic who regularly attends services, but Catholic bishops in the United States want to deny him communion because he’s a Democrat.
American bishops voted this week to change the rules regarding communion so that they can deny it to Biden in objection to his pro-choice views.
Biden, who is the second Roman Catholic to be president after John F. Kennedy, is apparently being politically targeted by the church. Even the Vatican has warned the bishops not to deny Biden communion.
But the move is especially hypocritical considering the Catholic Church coddled disgraced former President Donald Trump despite his extramarital affairs and vile behavior. It also praised former Attorney General Bill Barr despite his support of the death penalty. And let’s not forget former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who has also been married multiple times and has cheated on his wives.
None of them were ever denied communion, and these same bishops have protected pedophile priests for decades. So, this is clearly punishment for being a liberal. It’s a political statement and one that has drawn massive backlash.
Time for Pope Francis to have a “Come to Jesus moment” with the Catholic Bishops who want to deny President Biden Communion.
Their statement is political not religious.

The Catholic Church protected a bunch of pedophile priests for years, but they’ll deny President Biden communion because he believes Women have a right to Choice?
Make them pay a hypocrisy tax.

I don’t think Biden “finds himself as odds” w/the Catholic Church. He’s been an openly, observant Catholic his entire life. He has also been openly pro-choice for much of his political career incl as VP. So why are the bishops moving now to deny communion? https://t.co/XYHZJgE19C

For centuries—literally centuries—the Catholic Church approved of abortion until quickening (which is basically fetal viability), so truly this denying Biden communion nonsense is 100% political. It’s ridiculous.

like all Christians, Trump believes marriage is a sacred institution between a man and a woman and another woman after that and then another woman after that and also a paid-off porn actress and other women both willing and unwilling. but sure, let’s deny communion to Joe Biden

The American bishops who won’t give Biden communion in church gave Bill Barr their “Faithful Christian Laity” award at their annual Catholic Prayer Breakfast in September of 2020 #CatholicBishops https://t.co/SFJxp6tMmM

Congressman @tedlieu called US Catholic Bishops hypocrites for trying to deny President Biden communion over abortion rights aka a women’s right to choose whilst silent about William Barr’s vile fetish for the death penalty.
I’ll go further, covering up crimes of pedo priests.

The fact that some Catholics want to ban Biden from Communion because of abortion but not ban Gov. Greg Abbott as he executes people in Texas confuses me.

RC Bishops leap into the political arena to shame our RC President Biden in the mid-term elections by denying him communion (as compared to their embrace of the soul-less El Diablo Trump); skip Mass and strip these churches of their tax exemptions. https://t.co/KyerlmpiLv

I see some bishops are in favor of denying Biden communion because he’s pro-choice, which is kind of hilarious coming from an organization that’s forced nuns to have abortions. https://t.co/MHxyNV1s2a

One, a faith that needs to be in the growth business will repel new parishioners. Two, younger Catholics are firmly pro-contraception and pro-choice. Three, lectures on morality? Really? I grew up in the church. A new low. https://t.co/O6CtO0xwiu

Let’s label the U.S. bishops who want to deny Biden holy communion “communionists.” Then we can start warning the public about the communionist menace. Who’s with me?

President Biden shouldn’t be worried about taking communion from the Catholic Church. He should be condemning it for its culpability in the disappearance of thousands of Indigenous children in church run residential/boarding schools.

Dear @USCCB: You did not deny Communion to the following Catholic Republicans:
-Newt Gingrich, who believed in open marriage & had multiple divorces
-Bill Barr, who expanded death penalty executions
-Chris Collins, who stole by insider trading
You are being partisan hypocrites. https://t.co/0HQN0SbQKM

Indeed, the bishops are hypocrites and it’s time for the Catholic Church to lose tax-exempt status. Catholic Church membership is already dropping to record lows, and these bishops are about to find out that liberals go to church, too. Because once they deny Biden communion, those liberals will no longer be in attendance.
