Despite Catholic opposition, pro-abortion Biden receives Communion at the Vatican

It’s not a secret: President Joe Biden supports abortion. That’s a problem as far as his faith is concerned, as the Catholic Church does not support abortion, which, as a result, has prompted numerous priests around the country to insist that Biden shouldn’t be able to partake in receiving Communion.

According to Fox News, it appears as if Biden doesn’t give a rip about what a majority of the leaders of his faith say, as he was spotted receiving Communion at St. Patrick’s Church on Saturday, just one day after the president met with Pope Francis.

Biden claimed that Pope Francis gave him the greenlight to continue receiving Communion, even as a number of high-ranking Catholic Bishops protested the idea.

Bishops revolt

Texas-based Bishop Joseph Strickland was quick to express his disapproval of Biden continuing to take part in the sacred ceremony, as he retweeted a post from popular conservative Cardinal Raymond Burke, who made clear in his post that pro-abortion Catholics — even presidents — should be banned from receiving the sacrement.

Bishop of Providence Thomas Tobin took to social media to echo the same sentiment, making clear that there’s no place in the Catholic Church for pro-abortion members to receive Communion.

“Please challenge President Biden on this critical issue. His persistent support of abortion is an embarrassment for the Church and a scandal to the world. Thank you. Very respectfully, Your brother +Thomas,” Tobin wrote in a letter to Pope Francis earlier in the week.

Biden and the Pope

Reporters were anxious to find out what the U.S. president and Pope Francis talked about during their 75-minute meeting at the Vatican.

Biden claimed that Pope Francis applauded him for being a “good Catholic,” and that’s when Biden revealed that Francis told him he should continue to take part in receiving Communion, despite the backlash from prominent Catholics around the globe.

Earlier this year, the president didn’t seem concerned about efforts spearheaded by a group of bishops who convened to consider banning the president from receiving Communion, given his pro-abortion stance.

“I don’t think that’s going to happen,” Biden said at the time, according to Fox News.
