A retired Catholic archbishop has said that Joe Biden should not receive Holy Communion because of his stance on ‘evil’ abortion and same-sex relationships.
Charles J. Chaput, 76, is the head of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), and stepped down as archbishop of Philadelphia earlier this year.
He claims that the president-elect’s pro-choice support has created a ‘scandal’ for the faithful, and means ‘he is not in full Communion with the Catholic Church.’
When he is sworn in Biden, 78, will become the second baptized Catholic to serve as president, after John F. Kennedy, and has frequently cited his faith as a source of strength and guidance in his life.
But his continued support for Roe v Wade, which first protected a woman’s right to abortion in the US in 1973, as well as same-sex marriage, which was legalized federally in 2015, has caused a schism between Catholic leaders.
