Catholic Bishops chief says Biden policies contradict those of his own religion

Los Angeles Archbishop José Gomez, the president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, earlier this week questioned the positions of Joe Biden — who after John F Kennedy will be the second Catholic president — saying they are contrary to his professed faith.

Biden “has given us reason to believe that he will support policies that are some fundamental values we hold dear as Catholics,” Gomez said. “These policies include the repeal of the Hyde amendment and the preservation of Roe versus Wade,” he said, as well as “the unequal treatment of Catholic Schools.”

The Hyde amendment bars using federal funds to pay for abortions except to save the life of the mother. Biden flipped his long-held support of the amendment in order to win the Democratic primaries.

Gomez continues: “We have long opposed these policies strongly, and we will continue to do so. But when politicians who profess the Catholic faith support them, there are additional problems. Among other things, it creates confusions among the faithful about what the church actually teaches.”

  1. Does Gomez think Catholics are a bunch of brainless morons? We’re not confused about what the Church teaches. We are confused about why the Church hasn’t called out & excommunicated hypocrites like Biden and Pelosi years ago. Makes you wonder how the Church benefited from keeping their mouths shut all these years.

    1. Perhaps the Church, channeling Christ’s teaching, is giving Biden room to repent. Personally, however, I tend to agree with you. Biden’s flip-flop on Hyde in order to win the Gimmiedats’ nomination says all I need to hear about his “principles.” For several reasons very personal to me that move all by itself makes him anathema as a candidate, leader, or spokesman for any office or issue whatever.
