Last week, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops voted 168-55, more than 3-1, to provide new guidance for receiving Holy Communion.

Behind the decision?

Bishops’ alarm that the public religious practice of President Joe Biden is conveying a heretical message to the faithful and the nation.

At Sunday Mass, Biden regularly receives Communion. Yet he not only supports Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to have an abortion, but his new administration also provides ample funding of abortions.

Restrictions that existed in the Trump era, such as the Hyde Amendments that prohibit taxpayer-funding of abortions, are about to be lifted in the Biden presidency.

If the “teaching document” the bishops are expected to produce is consistent with traditional doctrine, a series of collisions on moral issues is about to shake the American Catholic Church and Democratic Party.

For that majority of U.S. bishops, who believe pro-choice Catholic politicians should be denied Communion, will likely collide not only with Biden and their fellow bishops but with the Vatican. Pope Francis had wanted to avert this now seemingly inevitable showdown on the issue.

Even if the document does not mention him by name, Biden will be pressed by the media to explain how he can back government funding of the killing of the unborn and still receive Holy Communion.

Pope Francis will be pressed as to whether the U.S. bishops are wrong to insist that U.S. Catholic leaders who defy Catholic doctrine on one of the great moral issues of the age should not be treated as devout Catholics.
If the bishops produce a teaching document that is consistent with traditional Catholic doctrine, what will it say?

Abortion is the killing of an unborn child, a grave moral crime and sin. No Catholic may be a party to it. Political leaders who endorse abortion rights and vote to fund abortions contribute to a systemic moral evil and a scandalizing of the faithful. And they should neither receive nor be given Holy Communion. To do so is to give moral sanction to their misconduct.

The major argument raised against a denial of Communion to pro-abortion Catholics is the deeper division in the church it could create.

“The choice before us at this moment,” said Washington, D.C., Cardinal Wilton Gregory at the bishops’ gathering, “is either we pursue a path of strengthening unity among ourselves or settle for creating a document that will not bring unity but may very well further damage it.”

But is episcopal collegiality a higher cause than standing up for the right to life of millions of unborn who are about to be done to death?

Is a perceived unity among bishops more important than public witness to the truth that the unborn in America have been destroyed for 50 years at an annual rate that exceeds the COVID-19 pandemic at its worst?

Is clarity about doctrinal truth less important than fraternity?

No one can know what is in the heart and soul of Biden, who visibly manifests a devotion to his Catholic faith unrivaled in any national politician of his generation.

Still, there is no denying the message Biden’s appearance receiving Communion gives off. It is that to be pro-abortion and fund abortions does not necessarily conflict with being a good Catholic.

Pro-life Bishop Kevin Rhoades of South Bend, Indiana, dissents: “There is a special obligation of those who are in leadership because of their public visibility.”

ORDER IT NOW

Rhoades previously objected to Notre Dame’s conferring of its prestigious Laetare Medal on Vice President Biden, citing his support for abortion and same-sex marriage: “I disagree with awarding someone for ‘outstanding service to the Church and society’ who has not been faithful to this obligation.”

Asked Friday how he felt about the possibility that Catholic bishops would vote to deny him Communion, Biden dismissed the idea and walked away: “That’s a private matter, and I don’t think that’s going to happen.”
Where is this going?

The bishops have scheduled a decision by their next conference to write a report that seems certain to be read as a rebuke to Biden.

While this will divide the Catholic community, the pope is unlikely to give the document his support. Hence, its effect will be restricted to those dioceses whose bishops agree with it — and choose to deny Communion to the president of the United States.

Biden will be pressed to speak to the issue of abortion and the bishops’ decision to deny him Communion. His attendance at Mass and taking Communion will become matters of deepening controversy. His attendance at Sunday Mass may be marked by demonstrations.

And he will be charged with hypocrisy — for pretending to be the kind of Catholic that a majority of American bishops contend he is not.

With many states having adopted new restrictions on abortion that appear to conflict with Roe v. Wade, the issue of abortion appears about to be returned to the Supreme Court — and to the front burner of U.S. politics.

Not good news for Joe Biden.

    I shouldn’t worry Pat, as Christ said “many will come in my name, by their actions shall you know them”. The current pope invited Muslims into the Vatican, surely the actions of a disciple of the Anti Christ. Joe Biden as a supporter of child murder (suffer the little children to come unto me) LBGTQI+++ and transgenderism is pretty small beer when compared to that.

    Has the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops provided guidance to devout politicians about bailing out Wall Street, droning weddings in MENA, or choking those who dissent?

    The American Catholic politicians finally went a bridge too far. Even the lily-livered American Conference of prince-bishops have been scandalized.

  5. With its seventeen hundred year track record of denying full human rights to half the human species on account of their gender, the Catholic Church needs to keep its damn mouth shut. It has long since forfeited the right to have an opinion on women’s issues.

    Add to this the church’s unrelenting persecution of gays, of Jews and other nonbelievers, its centuries-long enabling of pedophilia, its encouragement of absolutist tyrannies, and its knee-jerk opposition to all forms of social, political, and scientific progress. Just Google “syllabus of errors Encyclical of Pius IX” for a listing of what the church officially condemns. The catalog includes democracy, the free press, freedom of religion; it demands immunity for the church from civil law, and many more unpleasantries. There’s an iron core of repression under the sweet talk, always has been. No one who refuses to acknowledge, let alone recant this obscene heritage, is fit to claim a place in the civil life of a 21st century republic.

    If the bishops persist, it is time to do what President Ulysses S. Grant recommended in his 1875 State of the Union address, “I would also call your attention to the importance of correcting an evil that, if permitted to continue, will probably lead to great trouble in our land….it is the accumulation of vast amounts of untaxed church property…. receiving all the protection and benefits of government without bearing its portion of the burdens and expenses of the same….I would suggest the taxation of all property equally, whether church or corporation.” His message included a petition containing 35,000 signatures stating, “We demand that churches and other ecclesiastical property shall be no longer exempt from taxation.”

    Ironically, in a March 1790 letter, George Washington wrote this to a delegation of Catholics, concerned about their status in the new majority WASP republic, “As mankind become more liberal they will be more apt to allow, that all those who conduct themselves as worthy members of the Community are equally entitled to the protection of civil Government. I hope ever to see America among the foremost nations in examples of justice and liberality.”

    Jesus says, “What does it profit a man if he gain the whole world and lose his immortal soul?”

  10. I consider it the height of hypocrisy for Patrick Buchanan to condemn Democratic/left-wing pro-abortion Roman Catholics as false Roman Catholics when he relentlessly has shilled for the Republican Party, which has never done anything of substance to try to make abortion illegal. He supported Senator Barry Goldwater of Arizona for president in 1964, Goldwater was openly pro-abortion, paid for his daughter to get an abortion and was involved in Planned Parenthood. He supported Nelson Rockefeller for vice president in 1964. Rockefeller was one of the first two governors to sign bills legalizing abortion and was relentlessly pro-abortion. Buchanan worked for Richard Nixon, who was pro-abortion and had John D. Rockefeller III chair a commission to promote using abortion for population control. Buchanan is just shilling for the Republican Party like he always does.

    You are clueless about the history of the Catholic Church. The Church was the biggest supporter of women’s rights, granting them dignity and forbidding abandonment or divorce except in the case of adultery. The Church has fought endlessly for the rights of women to be allowed to be born, and not murdered in the womb. By forbidding prostitution, the Church protected women from being whored out and by emphasizing the family, has kept women and their children secure. As to homosexuals, they persecute their own rdctums by using them as sexual organs, by educating them as to the sinfulness of their disgusting habits, the Church has saved many from disease and degradation. You are seriously misguided in your hatred of the One True Church.

    Surely the author meant this in jest. Biden has no heart and no soul, he sold out to the devil when he started his political career.

  15. SafeNow says:

    REM, explaining the title of their gigantic hit, “Losin’ My Religion,” explained that it’s not actually about religion. Rather, “loosing my religion” is a southern expression meaning to loose one’s civility. But a dual meaning emerged. It would be fitting if Biden lost his actual religion, because he had already lost his civility (what little he had). I think the two often go hand in hand.

    Musical trivia: “Loosin My Religion” begins with a mandolin solo — I guess it’s now the best-known mandolin part in music. (Sorry, Vivaldi) The REM guitarist had just bought a mandolin. He took it home, started fooling around on it, learning to play it, and invented that riff. Life seldom works like that, Biden Jr.

    or operating a torture facility and mass-murdering untold millions of innocent souls in lied-about wars

    or opening up the Gates of Vienna so that the Muslims and Africans and everyone else can simply waltze in and demand their gibs.

    Homo “weddings”, white Christians as second class citizens in all white, Christian countries. The Christians of the Holy land in Palestine and Syria being persecuted or raped or even crucified, doesn’t make it to the radar of the current Poop, who’s too busy eating off the floor of assorted Zionist$ or BLM racists or protecting endemic child rape among the priesthood.

    Worrying about abortion as Christendom burns, is an absurdity.

    Biden (and the Catholic Church) participated in the decades-long religious cleansing of Christians from Bethlehem- from 85% in 1950, to a little over 10% today.

    This is due to Zionist, Jewish supremacist persecution and cleansing. And everybody knows it. Biden, the Poop, and all the rest.

    Yet these cowardly, sniveling whores of zion, will never speak the God’s truth, because they’d choke on the truth. They’re worms, and they’re enemies of the Christian people, and Christ Himself, who would never tolerate such craven worshiping of Mammon.

    Any church that would allow themselves to be ruled by such as the current Poop, deserves to rot away and die.

    Let the Catholic faithful make common cause with the devout Protestants who also repudiate a fag-loving leadership, and who preach for war and black supremacism, and let there be a breach between the Christian/Catholic church of traditional values, vs. the current ‘church’ of slavish fealty to shekels and homoism/BLM/and Islamic colonization of dying (murdered) Christendom.

    The Poop is an abomination to everything that is sacred and Holy in the Catholic and Christian churches. He’s an abomination to Western civilization, and to all Western ideals and aspirations and hopes – to betray that all, and to personally be responsible for the death of untold thousands of years of a people and their unique stamp on our planet and culture and civilization itself.

    When Christiandom (Europa) is dead, so too will the Christ die in the hearts of mankind.

    No single persona is more dedicated to murdering Christ, as He lives (barely) today, than the current Poop.

    No single persona should be held more to account for the serial wars, and torture and moral abyss Western civilization is plunging into, than that execrable dog crawling around in the Vatican.

    A person should be held to the standard of their office, and by that metric, Biden is a saint by comparison.

    One such, in Canada, even cooperated with the US CIA in germ warfare / bio-warfare experiments on the children of unmarried mothers.

    So, that self-righteous sect, that gives itself the brand name Catholic, has no right to pontificate on that subject.

    Okay, abortion is a mortal sin. A famous Lutheran minister, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, made that clear in his writings.

    Well, then, leave to God the punishment for that mortal sin. The State needs to stay out of it, has no sovereignty in the matter.

    I understand your point but it is Pelosi and Biden who want to belong to the Catholic religion. It is they who are therefore subject to its rules and standards.

That’s a red herring and has absolutely nothing to do with the authority of the church.

    Early Christianity was the ISIS of the Ancient World
    httphttps://www.unz.com/s://nationalvanguard.org/2017/10/early-christianity-was-the-isis-of-the-ancient-world/

    Modern Christianity is still causing problems for us. Here’s just one example:

    “Although modern research has demonstrated the existence of a significant positive correlation between foreign aid and fertility, Christian organizations continue to actively send aid to Third World countries. The continuous flow of money from the global north to the global south has led to explosive population growth in the developing regions of the world. This problem is most acute in Africa, where the demographic situation has been significantly exacerbated by foreign aid from the liberal governments of developed countries and Christian charities. The population increases through a continuous stream of charitable donation, which places great strain on available resources as the local carrying capacity of the land is exceeded. Competition for scarce resources intensifies, bringing violent conflict in its wake; large-scale famines occur with increasing frequency and severity. The destabilization of entire regions leads to increasing numbers of Africans desperately trying to escape worsening conditions in their own countries, accelerating the destruction of Western civilization through the demographic timebomb of Third World migration. After the West has been utterly destroyed by rampaging migrant hordes, the populations that once survived on Christian charity and foreign aid return to subsistence-level conditions after Malthusian catastrophe. This results in widespread depopulation of Africa south of the Sahara Desert.”

Mr. Buchanan serves the Establishment by first demonizing Uncle Sam’s targets as dictatorships, autocracies, etc., that push around the innocent NATO lambs and, somehow, threaten the American people.* Only then does he question the efficacy and costs — not the morality — of Washington’s warmongering and imperialism, while still parroting Beltway talking points. He’s the Right sash of the Overton window, through which “we” can only see bad guys, and never reflect on the death and destruction committed with our money and young people gullible enough to “serve.”

Would make for a lovely world in a homogeneous utopia. Unfortunately we don’t live in one of those. Our adherence to the values proffered by the slave morality has been disastrous in this globalized world. Christian groups frequently work with open borders NGOs to resettle “refugees”. Traditionalist minded factions of the public who oppose open borders tend to be religious, true. Which is why you aren’t understanding me. But this would be just as true were they to follow any other religion, probably more so. Western secular morality is derived from Christian morality, they only dropped the chastity stuff, every other moral precept remains part of their ethos.

    Politically embarrassing for Biden, who otherwise probably isn’t in as much fear of damnation as some lesser educated people are.

    My favorite Paul Lynde moment from the old Hollywood Squares.

    PS: to tell it right, you’ve got to get the emphasis right, Paul Lynde style.

    Peter Marshall: “Paul, sheep tend to sleep all huddled up together. Why is that?”

    Paul Lynde: (after a moment’s pause) “Because Little Boy Blue’s a weirdo!”

    “Nobody cares what you baby-killers think either, rgl.”

    That’s entirely ok. I have no illusions, or aspirations to popularity. That aside, considering the recent revelations of 1000+ dead Native children killed in Canada by your fave cult, would you reconsider your take on my post?
