Radical abortion supporter Joe Biden found himself in a tough spot when he visited Saint Anthony Catholic Church in Florence, South Carolina, last Sunday when the priest in charge refused to let the former vice president take communion.
Father Robert Morey told the Kentucky media that he could not in good conscience serve communion to Biden because the former VP supports radical abortion laws and stands against church teaching on abortion.
“Sadly, this past Sunday, I had to refuse Holy Communion to former Vice President Joe Biden,” Morey told the Florence Morning News. “Holy Communion signifies we are one with God, each other and the Church. Our actions should reflect that. Any public figure who advocates for abortion places himself or herself outside of Church teaching.”
“I will keep Mr. Biden in my prayers,” the priest added.
The abortion-pushing candidate for the 2020 Democrat nomination for president was likely furious at being denied the service.
Still, Biden refused to talk about the incident.
Most recently, he insisted, “I’m a practicing Catholic. I practice my faith, but I’ve never let my religious beliefs, which I accept based on Church doctrine … impose … on other people.”
But like many other Democrats who continued hoping for support from the increasingly radicalized Democrat Party, Biden’s stance on abortion has “evolved” over his many decades in government.
For instance, at one time Biden supported the Hyde Amendment which prevents federal tax dollars from going to pay directly for abortion services. In 2012 he even claimed he was personally against abortion but supported it marginally as government policy.
But now that he is running for president (like he has nearly every year since 1984) he is now against the Hyde Amendment.
But the Democrat Party has strayed as far as possible from the Catholic Church on Abortion. The Church believes human life begins at conception and must be respected and protected, and they oppose abortion entirely… at least for now.
