(Reuters) -A divided conference of U.S. Roman Catholic bishops announced on Friday that they had voted to draft a statement on Holy Communion that may admonish Catholic politicians, including President Joe Biden, for supporting abortion rights.

 

Will President Biden be barred from taking communion as a religious politician?

 

Wonder how this will affect his relationship with his church.

Biden was asked about it and he said it was a private matter, and he didn't think it would happen.

 

Interestingly, other Catholic politicians have a different response.  Democratic Representative Ted Lieu "went on a rant against the Catholic church calling U.S. bishops 'hypocrites' and 'nakedly partisan' for seeking to update Communion guidance that could rebuke politicians like President Biden and Speaker Nancy Pelosi for supporting abortion policies."

"Next time I go to church, I dare you to deny me Communion,"  Lieu tweeted.

He has his church for as long as it serves his purpose. And the church needs him. They are in an adulterous marriage, remember? She is a prostitute, and she is “Babylon the Great, the mother of the prostitutes and of the disgusting things of the earth.” (Re 17:5)

“Babylon the Great has brought much reproach on God’s name. She has taught lies about God. She has prostituted herself spiritually by forming alliances with earth’s rulers. She has used her power and influence to exploit her flocks. And she has spilled much blood, including the blood of God’s servants.”

They really didn't want that Catholic University run by nuns to permit his town hall meeting, but I see it went ahead as planned.

 

I remember doing a search for a poll on Catholics and how many think abortion was ok. It showed that they are split 50/50 just like the clay and the iron, eh.

That's a tragedy I can't wrap my head around. Man's inhumanity to man. The evil done to mankind supersedes anything human, its demonic. A local brother said they're having atrocities in the Sudan, terrorists are taking babies from their mothers arms, throwing them in the air and shooting them. 😳 I'm afraid to look that one up, I don't want to know any more.

I saw this and thought, isnt that fitting:

But an analysis of app data signals correlated to Burrill’s mobile device shows the priest also visited gay bars and private residences while using a location-based hookup app in numerous cities from 2018 to 2020, even while traveling on assignment for the U.S. bishops’ conference. 

 

According to commercially available records of app signal data obtained by The Pillar, a mobile device correlated to Burrill emitted app data signals from the location-based hookup app Grindr on a near-daily basis during parts of 2018, 2019, and 2020 — at both his USCCB office and his USCCB-owned residence, as well as during USCCB meetings and events in other cities.

“It is with sadness that I inform you that Msgr. Jeffrey Burrill has resigned as General Secretary of the Conference,” Archbishop Jose Gomez wrote July 20 in a memo to U.S. bishops.

This is the group that didn't want President Biden to get communion. And he is the Archbishop over them.

 

Also, they are extremely "conservative", meaning they think homosexuality is wrong too; but here's their main Bishop. Jesus called the religious leaders of his day "hypocrites". It seems this hasn't changed.
