    Some Roman Catholic groups and leaders are worried about Biden

    Some Catholic leaders call on Biden to ‘repent’ ahead of presidency as Archbishop Jose Gomez says Democrat’s support of marriage equality and abortion could create ‘confusion with the faithful about what the church teaches’

    • In a November 17 virtual meeting for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Archbishop Jose Gomez sounded the alarm
    • While he praised President-elect Biden’s work against racism and immigration, he slammed him for his support of  marriage equality and abortion
    • ‘When politicians who profess the Catholic faith support them, there are additional problems,’ Gomez said
    • He continued: ‘It creates confusion with the faithful about what the church actually teaches on these questions’ 
    • Catholics overall supported the former vice president in the 2020 election, securing Biden 52 percent of the vote compared to Trump’s 47 percent 

    Some Roman Catholic leaders are voicing their concern that President-elect Joe Biden would enact policies that would create ‘confusion’ about what the Church teaches.    

    In a November 17 virtual meeting for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Archbishop Jose Gomez shared that a group was being formed to respond to some of the worries the leaders had towards Biden, who would become the second practicing Catholic to be president.

    ‘The president-elect has given us reason to believe that his faith commitments will move him to support some good policies. This includes policies of immigration reform, refugees and the poor, and against racism, the death penalty, and climate change,’ Gomez, who is president of the USCCB, said towards the end of the Tuesday session.

    In a November 17 virtual meeting for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Archbishop Jose Gomez sounded the alarm and said a group was forming to work on concerns to be presented to President-elect Joe Biden

    ‘He has also given us reason to believe that he will support policies that are against some fundamental values that we hold dear as Catholics. These policies include: the repeal of the Hyde Amendment and the preservation of Roe vs. Wade. Both of these policies undermine our preeminent priority of the elimination of abortion.’

    Gomez continued to cite various policies and agenda items he and the other leaders were alarmed over, including ‘the restoration of the HHS mandate’ and ‘the passage of the Equality Act.’   

    ‘These policies pose a serious threat to the common good,’ Gomez said. ‘Whenever any politicians supports them.’

    Gomez asserted that the Catholic Church has long opposed those policies and ‘will continue to do so.’

    ‘CatholicVote fully agrees with @USCCB President Abp. Gomez’s assessment that many of Joe Biden policies creates “confusion among the faithful” and “pose a serious threat to the common good,’ the group said in a Thursday thread.

    Bishop Joseph Strickland of Tyler, Texas, also begged Biden to 'repent' for straying from Catholic teachings in his endorsement of policies regarding abortion and marriage

    ‘Should Biden be officially elected, his administration has outlined plans to slash pro-life policies protecting unborn lives, unlock millions for abortion services, and overturn religious freedom protections for religious organizations like the Little Sisters of the Poor.

    ‘These plans and policies represent a radical anti-life, anti-Catholic agenda in clear and direct conflict with Catholic social teaching and the values that Catholics rightly prioritize.’

    ‘He aspires to the highest office in our land & must be guided by the truth God has revealed to us,’ the bishop said. ‘I pray for him to find Truth.’

    Catholics overall supported the former vice president in the 2020 election, securing Biden 52 percent of the vote compared to Trump’s 47 percent. Trump beat Hillary in 2016 with 50 percent of the vote compared to 46 percent, according to Washington Post exit polls.

    White Catholics specifically decreased their support of Trump, who had a 24-point margin in 2016. He only had a 12-point lead nationwide among the specific group for the 2020 election.

    There have been Catholic leaders who have lended their support to Biden, including Sister Simone Campbell, a nun who leads the Network Lobby – a non-profit that aims to promote women leadership in the Catholic Church. 

    Campbell shared a link to the ‘Equally Sacred’ score card that details how both President Trump’s and President-elect Biden’s policies interact with the ‘FULL teachings of the Catholic Church.’ 

    The scorecard had Trump only doing ‘better’ than Biden in one category – his overturning of Roe v. Wade.
