Biden Snubs Catholic Church As 2024 Heats Up

President Joe Biden of the United States has come under fire for taking stances that go against Catholicism while maintaining he is a Catholic. The most egregious stance, among other things, is a call for all 50 states to legalize abortion, which includes taxpayer-funded abortion on demand. This would force his “fellow Catholics” to pay for abortions.

Biden has persistently pushed for anti-Catholic puberty blockers for children with gender dysphoria and the inclusion of biological males in women’s athletics. The U.S. Bishops have harshly criticized Biden for his stance on transgender issues and his support for the Equality Act, which regulates free speech, severely undermines religious freedom, endangers the privacy and safety of women and girls, hinders quality health care, and threatens charitable nonprofits and the people they serve.

In addition, Biden’s enthusiastic support for abortion has drawn criticism from the White House, which views it as contributing to “the destruction of defenseless, voiceless human beings.” While Biden’s supposed religious beliefs are deeply personal, he’s continually enthusiastically supported laws that should have made him uneasy—most notably abortion and transgender rights—that are important to the Democratic Party but opposed by the Catholic Church.

Similarly, Biden has avoided directly addressing the death penalty; he promised to end the use of capital punishment in 2020 but has done little to follow through.

With 69% of Catholics believing that abortion should be lawful in situations when the life or health of the pregnant mother is endangered and 66% believing that abortion should be legal in cases of rape, conservative Catholic bishops have already voiced their opposition to Biden during his first term as president.

Regarding LGBTQ issues, Biden has urged lawmakers to approve the Equality Act, which would grant transgender people legal protections. Republicans are enacting anti-LGBTQ state laws throughout the nation, but top LGBTQ rights groups have embraced the president’s reelection campaign, arguing that he is the leader they need.
