Top Catholic Bishop Warns Joe Biden: You Supporting Abortion “Creates Confusion” for Catholics

A leading Catholic archbishop in the U.S. warned Joe Biden that he is creating “confusion” among Catholics about abortion and the sanctity of human life.

The statement came Tuesday from Los Angeles Archbishop José Gomez, the president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, during an online meeting of the bishops, according to the National Catholic Reporter.

Biden, the presumed winner of the presidential election, has touted himself repeatedly as a devout Catholic who cares about the most vulnerable in society. However, Biden’s views on unborn babies and religious freedom directly contradict his faith. He supports abortions without restriction and wants to force taxpayers to pay for them.

Gomez said Biden’s pro-abortion position creates a “difficult and complex situation” for Catholic leaders, the report states.

“When politicians who profess the Catholic faith support [abortion], there are additional problems,” the archbishop said. “Among other things, it creates confusion among the faithful about what the Catholic Church actually teaches on these questions.”

Gomez said the USCCB plans to form a working group, led by Detroit Archbishop Allen Vigneron, to explore the problem in more depth.

Here’s more from the report:

He said that there is reason to believe that Biden’s Catholic faith would motivate him to pursue policies that aligned with Catholic teaching on immigration reform, refugees, the poor, initiatives against racism, the death penalty and climate change.

Yet Gomez singled out abortion, saying that Biden’s opposition to the Hyde Amendment, which bars federal funding for abortion, and his support of Roe v. Wade is “against some fundamental values we hold dear as Catholics.”

“Both of these policies undermine our preeminent priority of the elimination of abortion,” he added

Earlier this month, Gomez faced criticism for failing to mention Biden’s radical pro-abortion agenda when he congratulated him for winning the presidency. Biden is being celebrated as the second Catholic to be elected as president of the United States, though votes are still being certified and President Donald Trump filed lawsuits in several states.

Biden’s pro-abortion agenda includes advocating for abortions without limits and forcing taxpayers to fund them. He also opposes religious freedom measures that protect Catholic charities like the Little Sisters of the Poor, which serves the poor and elderly.

Biden said he plans to codify Roe v. Wade into federal law and appoint U.S. Supreme Court justices who will support abortion on demand. He also said he would fight to end the Hyde Amendment and force taxpayers to pay for elective abortions – which could lead to 60,000 more unborn babies’ deaths to abortion each year.

In April, Biden went so far as to call the killing of unborn babies an “essential medical service” during the coronavirus pandemic. His health care plan would expand abortions as well by forcing insurance companies to cover abortions as “essential” health care under Obamacare.

He also promised to undo all of Trump’s progress for life, including restoring funding to the billion-dollar abortion chain Planned Parenthood.

On religious freedom, Biden’s position also is deeply troubling. Biden has endorsed anti-religious freedom policies that would force nuns, religious charities and hospitals to violate their deeply-held beliefs by funding the killing of unborn babies in abortions and potentially even by helping to facilitate their deaths.

Among them, he and his vice presidential running mate Kamala Harris oppose a religious exemption from the Obamacare contraception mandate for the Little Sisters of the Poor, a nuns’ charity that serves the poor and elderly. The Supreme Court recently granted the Little Sisters relief from the Obama-era mandate, which would have forced them to fund contraception, including forms that may cause abortions, in their employee health plans.
