Catholic bishops advance plan to draft document on ’Eucharistic Coherence’

US Roman Catholic bishops agreed on Friday to draft a statement on the meaning of Holy Communion which some allege could potentially be used to deny the sacred rite to President Biden because of his position on abortion. Biden supports the landmark 1973 US Supreme Court decision affirming a woman’s right to an abortion.

It's about time, what took the church so long. Nancy Pelosi should have been rebuked years ago.

This is pretty absurd. From the article: "Biden, who attends Mass regularly, says he personally opposes abortion but doesn’t think he should impose that position on Americans who feel otherwise." This is a reasonable and balanced approach for Biden to take, and it's the kind of balance that the separation between church and state mandates. If we allow religious bodies to dictate policy by essentially using things like the sacrament as leverage, then we'd be living in a theocracy.

Happy to see this. Too many Catholics (and other Christians for that matter) say one thing on Sunday and do something different for the rest of the week.

Religious leaders condemn a leader for supporting an immoral act. They are well within their right to do this though the only consequences are religious ones. We must keep religion and politics separate after all. If Biden publicly supports abortion (regardless of what he as an individual believes) then politically thats fine. Religiously though abortion is a terrible sin and so it makes sense that there should be religious consequences for it.

I see a lot of people trumpeting the separation of church and state in this comment section. That was never the intention of this country from it's founding. Hell the constitution that rules this land doesn't exist without religious pretenses. Remember we are endowed with certain inalienable rights by whom? Our Creator. Am I to believe that our constitution is now invalid since it contains religious language? How about the pledge of allegiance which starts out one nation under who? Not the president, not under the supreme court, not under the Congress, no it's one nation under god. The myth of separation of church and state is not only incorrect, but also denies the foundational texts of this nation and the genesis of our inalienable rights. To separate church and state is to deny your own constitution and bill of rights that are literally built on judeo-christian ideology. We have strayed way to far off the path to prosperity and happiness. You can't fill a void of religion with culture or government.🤷🏾‍♂️

They did warn him. Leading bishop warns Joe Biden to stop saying he’s a "devout Catholic" https://www.irishcentral.com/news/bishop-warns-joe-biden-stop-devout-catholic They have to make sure if you very open for abortion, even late term like Biden you can't make people think that's ok for a Catholic. He ran on abortion.

Abortion isn't a right.. but sounds like the catholics are finally getting off their butts.. Abortion should only be acceptable in emergencies... not as a quick way to avoid responsibly for your actions (even then the male should be allowed to have input... 50% of them is in that kid too)

The same Catholic Church that sexually abuses little boys, and murders native children for over 100 years in Canada, forces gay conversion therapy, makes a saint of a woman who says it's beautiful to see the poor suffer... Then does nothing to make amends with its victims. Who cares wtf they think. This is akin to a serial killer denouncing a president. Biden may be a senile old man that can't string together two sentences and a crap president, but until your organization can run itself without corruption and abuses, you have no room to criticize. "Clean your room."

Interesting religious moral question: is a mentally impaired person responsible when they don't follow the principles of thier proclaimed religion. Seems like "God understands " is one way to look at it. But if the person is making actual laws that contradict the religion seems a little ambiguous.

I have a problem with the liberals identifying Catholics as Christians. They are not. We are Protestants. I admire much about the Catholics and this is the one thing that I truly admire. They are unapologetically for the unborn child--"the least of these" in our world today. As to liberals identifying Jimmy Carter and Biden as the two most devoutly religious of our presidents, I would just like for them to also report that Carter was indeed devoutly pro-life. I don't really care how "religious" you pretend to be, it is your actions, not your words, that reveal the content of your heart. Biden is a wolf in sheep's clothing. If we judge by actions and not words, Trump was much more of a "good" person than Biden. Trump talked tough, but his heart was good. We have just the opposite with Biden, unfortunately.

Isn't American Catholicism hijacked with jews like soros? This seems like an attempt to turn more people away from the church as they know that people are becoming more secular. The church has it's own problems to deal with first.

Not up to them, its up to God. If He didn't want them receiving communion, they wouldn't make it through the door of His house.

This has happened in many traditionally Catholic countries. Leaders cannot let the Vatican run their countries down this is something that the Pope himself needs to comment on. Just look at the example set by Kennedy.

This has always been a concern of the American people and this is the reason that the United States has only had 2 Catholic presidents, the worry that they would answer to the Church and the Pope.

Hey Catholic Church. You give communion to grown men who sodomize little boys. How is Biden unfit to be one of you when you do that? I guess that's just a good way to avoid abortion? Biden is a dud of a president, but the church's leadership is so much more corrupt. This is a non story.
