Will the Catholic Bishops Call Out Joe?

As a cradle Catholic and recipient of Notre Dame’s Laetare Medal, Joe Biden is outspoken in declaring that the principles and beliefs of his Catholic faith guide his public life.
“Joe is a man of faith,” was a recurring theme at the Democratic convention that nominated him to become our second Catholic president.
Biden has often affirmed the centrality of his faith to his decisions in public life. In a video released on the eve of the convention, he credited Pope Francis and the nuns who educated him with making him the man he is today.

Having taken the King’s coin and having its own “dirty laundry” to hide, they can’t as a practical matter do much!
That’s why they won’t utter a word!
That’s why the laity is deserting in droves.
That’s why they are a shadow of their former selves in asserting moral principles.
The early Church Fathers, Saint Tomas Moore, and all the courageous Catholic martyrs must be rolling over.
“And when we die, and you are sent to heaven for doing your conscience, and I am sent to hell for not doing mine, will you come with me, for fellowship?” Paul Scofield as Thomas More in “A Man for All Seasons” (1966)
