Cardinal Says Devout Joe Biden Is Actually a Bad Catholic. Would the Pope Agree?
Is the ostentatiously devout Catholic Joe Biden, who wore a Rosary (or was it wire?) on his wrist while debating Donald Trump, really a bad Catholic? Prolife Catholics have been saying so for years, and now a leading bishop has spoken up on their side. The Catholic News Agency reported Tuesday that Cardinal Raymond Burke, “a canon lawyer and formerly the prefect of the Church’s highest court, has said that Catholic politicians supporting abortion should not receive Holy Communion, including pro-choice Catholic presidential candidate Joe Biden.”
That’s the kind of statement that makes you formerly the “prefect of the Church’s highest court.”
Biden, Burke asserted, “is not a Catholic in good standing and he should not approach to receive Holy Communion,” because “a Catholic may not support abortion in any shape or form because it is one of the most grievous sins against human life.”
If that is the case, then Biden is clearly not a Catholic in good standing. Accordingly, Burke stated, “I would tell him not to approach Holy Communion out of charity toward him, because that would be a sacrilege, and a danger to the salvation of his own soul. But also he should not approach to receive Holy Communion because he gives scandal to everyone. Because if someone says ‘well, I’m a devout Catholic’ and at the same time is promoting abortion, it gives the impression to others that it’s acceptable for a Catholic to be in favor of abortion and of course it’s absolutely not acceptable. It never has been, it never will be.” --->READ MORE HERE

Co-Chair of Catholics for Biden Once Called God a 'White Racist,' Said Republicans Are 'Evil':
Joe Biden’s campaign desperately wants religious voters, particularly Catholics.
Biden, after all, would only be the nation’s second Catholic president — although, given his interesting views on the sanctity of life, he may well lose the Catholic vote and lose it substantially.
While the data isn’t necessarily clear, Biden isn’t running away with the Catholic vote. A Pew Research survey conducted between July 27 and Aug. 2 indicated 50 percent of American Catholics planned to vote for President Trump while 49 percent intended to vote for Biden. There were wide differences when comparing how white Catholics planned to vote (59 percent to 40 percent for Trump) versus Hispanic Catholics (65 percent to 33 percent for Biden), and Pew’s sample consisted of registered voters, not likely voters.
There’s another problem with those numbers: In several major swing states, Roman Catholicism is the largest faith group. According to The Washington Post, Catholics in Arizona, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin made up one-quarter or more of residents as of 2015. (Residents in Florida, the biggest swing-state prize, were 22 percent Catholic — still the largest faith group in the state.) --->READ MORE HERE
