As President Biden evolves into the new mouthpiece for trans-affirming abortion-loving progressive Christianity, some Americans are looking to the Catholic Church to weigh-in on his position to help churchgoers discern which version of Christianity should be deemed the correct one. While evangelicalism has a long history of refuting pro-choice policies and shedding light on the incompatibility between same-sex unions and a Biblical worldview, recent happenings such as the January 6th attack on the Capitol and highly publicized scandals among prominent Christian pastors, such as Hillsong’s Carl Lentz and apologist Ravi Zacharias, have arguably somewhat diminished (temporarily) evangelical’s credibility in the eyes of the masses.

Wherein non-Catholic Christians have often been critical of the Vatican over doctrinal issues, now all eyes are on Rome to see if the papacy will uphold Biblical orthodoxy or cower in fear to cancel culture by giving into the demands of the Christian Left. (For more on Progressive Christianity, see Lucas Miles’ new book, The Christian Left: How Liberal Thought Has Hijacked the Church) Surprisingly, despite past evidence to the contrary from Pope Francis, this past week the Vatican took a firm stance on Biblical orthodoxy after announcing it’s “impossible” for God to bless same-sex unions, because God cannot “bless sin.”

Their decision was immediately met with criticism from far left activists, like CNN’s Don Lemon, who accused the church of needing to “reexamine themselves and their teachings”, as well as pop icon Elton John who declared the Catholic Church’s position “hypocrisy”, after revealing that the Vatican allegedly invested millions into John’s biopic “Rocketman”.
