As the closely contested presidential election intensifies, Catholic voters are strongly critical of Democratic candidate Joe Biden, who campaigns using his Catholic faith but really against it by supporting abortion and threatening nuns.
“You can’t say you’re a practicing Catholic and support the killing of children in the womb. To do so is atrocious and despicable,” said Lila Rose, founder and president of Live Action, a pro-life organization, according to Fox News on Oct. 30.
“And you can’t say you ‘didn’t know’ when your faith, and the basic moral law, tells you loud and clear, ‘You shall not kill,'” Rose wrote.
Also, Ashley McGuire, a senior member of the Catholic Association, spoke out against Biden’s inconsistencies.
“Joe Biden has campaigned on his Catholic faith while promising policies that contradict Catholic teachings and even threaten the Little Sisters of the Poor,” McGuire said.
Also, “The Bishops’ Conference has warned of the devastating consequences of the Equality Act for religious freedom and for girls and women, but Joe Biden supports it.
The Democratic-majority House passed the Equality Act 236-173, which gives priority to LGBT groups.
This bill should be renamed the “War on Christians Act,” says Brian Burch, president of Catholic Vote, a conservative political advocacy group.
“First, the ‘Equality’ Act explicitly exempts from the requirements and protections of the Religious Liberty Restoration Act, which was passed with massive bipartisan support in 1993,” Burch explained.
“The ‘Equality’ Act is designed to be the coup de grâce that finally destroys all vestiges of freedom with regard to marriage, gender, children, and family. For the radical left, these truths and institutions are forms of oppression,” Burch added.
However, this bill has not completed all the requirements for its entry into force, and Catholics hope it will be rejected in the Republican-majority Senate.
Biden “has put himself on a collision course with the Catholic Church by promising to pass the Equality Act in the first 100 days of his presidency,” Burch warned.
The equality bill would also require Catholic institutions to hire, for example, a kindergarten teacher who “changed” her gender and now identifies herself as a woman.”
Also, Catholic foster and adoption ministries, usually run by nuns, would cease to exist, because the Equality Act seeks to place children in homes with a mother and father.
Cardinal Raymond Burke said Biden should not receive communion and was not a “reputable” Catholic.
“This is not a political statement, I do not intend to get involved in recommending any candidate for office, but simply to state that a Catholic cannot support abortion in any form because it is one of the gravest sins against human life, and has always been considered intrinsically evil and therefore to support the act in any way is a mortal sin,” Cardinal Burke stressed.
According to Fox News polls in 2016, 50% of Catholics who voted supported President Trump and 46% voted for Hillary Clinton.
