Is President Joe Biden “very Catholic”? The Washington Post seems to think so, as do most corporate media outlets, which regularly fawn over Biden’s outward displays of piety while regularly showing contempt for the doctrines of the faith he professes
Maybe they just take Biden’s word for it. After all, the president makes much of his regular Mass attendance, and has long boasted about how important his Catholic faith is to him.
But ordinary Catholics — and even some Catholic bishops, it turns out — know better. They know that despite Biden’s outward shows of faith, he openly flouts church teaching and doctrine on major issues like abortion and gay marriage, and has for many years.
Now that he’s president (only the second Catholic to ever hold the office), the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops is debating whether to rebuke Biden publicly and instruct him not to receive Holy Communion until he repents and reverses his support for abortion,
