Catholic League Blasts Joe Biden’s ‘Monumental Ignorance’ of Catholicism

ROME — Catholic League president Invoice Donohue slammed President Joe Biden Tuesday for his “monumental ignorance of fundamental Catholic teachings.”

Dr. Donohue’s remarks got here in response to latest assertions by Biden that the bishops and the pope aren’t against funding abortions with tax {dollars}.

Particularly, a reporter requested President Biden on January 30 about Catholic opposition to publicly financed abortions, noting that “Catholic bishops are demanding that federal tax {dollars} not fund abortions.”

Biden denied the declare outright, Donohue noticed, pointing his finger and saying: “No, they don’t seem to be all doing that, neither is the Pope doing that.”

Joe Biden is “both profoundly blind to Catholicism, or he’s mendacity via his enamel,” Donohue declared, because the U.S. Bishops’ ongoing vocal opposition to abortion, particularly taxpayer-funded abortion, is a matter of public file.

As not too long ago as January 27, Donohue continued, the Bishops’ Professional-Life Committee, chaired by Bishop Michael Burbidge, despatched a letter to Home and Senate leaders insisting that the “authorities ought to by no means fund the destruction of harmless preborn kids.”

But Biden’s misrepresentation of the pope’s stance on the matter “is much more appalling,” Donohue said.

Pope Francis has declared unequivocally that abortion is “homicide,” Donohue famous, and has underscored that Catholic instructing is according to science.

“Scientifically, it’s a human life. The textbooks educate us that. However is it proper to take it out to resolve an issue?” the pontiff requested. “This is the reason the Church is so strict on this problem as a result of accepting that is form of like accepting day by day homicide.”

“How can an motion that ends an harmless and defenseless life in its blossoming stage be therapeutic, civilized or just human?” Francis has requested. “I ask you: Is it proper to get rid of a human life with a view to remedy an issue? Is it proper to rent a hitman with a view to remedy an issue?”

“One can’t. It’s not proper to get rid of a human being, nonetheless small, with a view to remedy an issue. It’s like hiring a hitman,” he stated.

For a person who likes to put on his Catholicism on his sleeve, Joe Biden “is a public embarrassment to Catholics the world over,” Donohue wrote.

“By no means has there been a White Home occupant who extra persistently seeks to sabotage Roman Catholicism than Joe Biden,” he concluded.
