“In 2008, he similarly said: “I’m prepared as a matter of faith to accept that life begins at the moment of conception.”
It’s unclear what changed but his statement came amid a whirlwind of controversy surrounding how Biden adhered to his Catholic faith in office.
The section of the Catholic Catechism discussing abortion says that the procedure and infanticide “are abominable crimes.”
It reads: “The inalienable rights of the person must be recognized and respected by civil society and the political authority.” The Catechism also warns that “when the state does not place its power at the service of the rights of each citizen, and in particular of the more vulnerable, the very foundations of a state based on law are undermined.”
Biden has long maintained that the government shouldn’t force particular beliefs on Americans. That’s part of the reason he supported the Hyde Amendment, which blocks federal funding for most abortions. But amid pressure in the 2020 campaign, he reversed his decades-old stance on the issue.” foxnews
Comment: Adherence to the Catholic faith is not like a Chinese Menu. You do not get to choose between Columns A & B for that which you choose to accept. Those self-serving hierarchs (bishops) who choose to tolerate hypocritical and self-serving politicians are despicable. They are every bit as bad as the swine McCarrick (molester of boys) who is now on trial for his crimes. pl
