More than 21,000 people have signed a letter calling for U.S. Catholic bishops to cancel a planned vote on whether President Biden should receive communion. Biden, a Catholic, supports abortion rights and has long come under attack from some Catholics over that position. The vote is set to take place next week at a meeting of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. "Pope Francis is clear that mercy, welcome, and pastoral sensitivity should be hallmarks of the church. Follow his pastoral example and listen to your brothers Cardinal Gregory and Bishop McElroy: Stop playing partisan politics with Holy Communion and cancel your planned anti-Biden vote," the petition reads.

Comments:

21,000 signers out of approximately 71,000,000 US Catholics. Hmmm. Underwhelming. 🤔

Mercy would be cutting him off immediately, because receiving the Body of Christ when you are not in a state of grace is dangerous in the extreme. Mercy would be to stop him from doing this dangerous thing he does not understand, and then, take the heat from others.

You don't have to take a vote to figure out whether killing babies is a sin.

It's noteworthy that the article says 21,000 people signed it, not 21,000 Catholics.

What a complete waste of time; straining at a gnat and swallowing a camel. All these foolish essentially symbolic gestures change nothing. The church used to matter to society. Now it has become a group of petition signers.

Well there are a lot more silent Catholics in the USA that follow church teachings who those Bishops should take into account, rather than the 21,000 liberal Democrat supporting Catholics who signed that letter to support Biden and by extension his extreme abortion policies.

I hope that the bishops are not swayed by any petition's. That is not the way things are done. However, I wouldn't put it past the current group of "leaders" who are not principled learned theologians. They are weak spined get along proponents of The Church of "As long as you believe what you're doing is right it doesn't matter what those pesky old Commandments tell you to do." #1 is completely correct. Even though "Devout Catholic" Joe is a source of scandal, the greatest injury is to his soul when he commits the sacrilege of receiving Communion in a state of Mortal Sin. There is no issue of "mercy, welcome, and pastoral sensitivity" when they ignore one, whose very public sin, not condemns his own soul but is leading others into grave sin. They know they Biden has effectively excommunicated himself and is not a member of The Body of Christ. BTW...He's married to a divorced woman whose husband is still living, and officiated at illicit marriages.

Wouldn't need to have this vote if the church just took a clear stand against abortion from EVERY pulpit. Our sermons are often incredible pablum void of any mention of sin and hell. It is as if Catholic clergy are too damn afraid to hurt someone's feelings. There is a reason Dante was particularly harsh on priests and their failure to feed Christ's sheep - it is still a problem and I fear the clerical failure of courage has led many a Catholic astray at the cost of our cleric's souls.

What Biden's defenders are ignoring is Catholic Communion is the real body of Christ, not a symbol, Christ is physically present. With friends like that, Biden does not need enemies because he just up front and personally insulted Christ. If the Bishops believed what they say they believe, they would admonish the sinner.

Not a Catholic. If you're gonna call yourself a member of a religious denomination you have to stand by and follow the rules of the religious denomination. You can't be pro-abortion and be a Catholic. Just that simple if you're are pro-abortion then go and join some religion that says it's ok. Don't try and tell any religion what it holds it followers to unless they are teaching to violence against unbelievers or to enslave them. Abortion is a form of violence to an innocent, however you try and bend the truth it remains that.

Wonder what these same 21,000 CINO's (Catholics In Name Only) would say if Hitler and the rest of the Nazi higher ups, were to be resurrected and be deemed entitled to receive Holy Communion on the grounds of "mercy, welcome, and pastoral sensitivity" by the German Catholic Bishops, while continuing with their Nazi program of unjust and inhuman extermination programs against the Jews and the Untermenschen? God's mercy as confirmed by Christ own consistent and constant message while on earth is that Gods unbounded MERCY is only open to the repentant of their sins and commit to giving up their sinful ways and do ONLY God's will..

Like #16 I am not a Catholic but I am a Christian. I don’t see how a real Christian can support abortion either. At least when it’s for simple convenience. I can see if the health of the mother is involved but that is extremely rare with modern medicine today.

If you listened solely to Democratic talking points, including the so-called mainstream media, you would be convinced that America is a systemically racist nation and that Republicans are somehow hell bent on disenfranchising large swaths of voters. Both of these notions are patently false. In fact, thanks to sustained long-term efforts, in 2021 it is easier to register and vote now than at any point in American history – no matter what color your skin is. This is a measure progress of which we should all be proud. When the Voting Rights Act was passed in 1965, voter registration and voter turnout

Texas Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw replied to an absurd tweet from Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts on Monday in which she disparaged the GOP’s refusal to support the so-called For the People Act. The supposed election reform bill is an example of gross federal overreach designed to ensure Republicans never win another election. “Republicans have decided that the only way they can win is by preventing American citizens from voting. That should shock every American. But we can’t just sit back and watch their power grab. We have to fight back for our democracy by passing the #ForThePeopleAct,” Warren wrote.

For a woman who specialized in badgering political appointees with misleading and ambiguously worded questions when she served in the U.S. Senate, Vice President Kamala Harris sure is a hot mess when it comes to answering even the most straightforward inquiries. Some may call this “ironic.” President Joe Biden’s second in command joined NBC News’s Lester Holt recently to discuss the biggest issues facing the White House, including the chaos at the U.S.-Mexico border. Amazingly, Harris, who is heading up the federal response to the immigration crisis, was caught flat-footed by a very simple question about whether she plans to visit the border. Harris refused to say if

Kamala Harris is playing a historic role in 2021: the nation’s first black, Asian, female vice president to serve as a sacrificial lamb. Like many other women before her, Harris has been tasked with coming in late to clean up a mess made by her boss. Joe Biden probably wouldn’t do too well in a “Jeopardy!” contest, or even on a circle-a-word puzzle, but he’s smart enough to know that when you’ve got a problem you can’t solve, you should grandly announce a plan to deal with it by … fobbing it off on someone else.

The announcement by Israeli opposition politicians that they had secured enough seats in the Knesset, or Israeli parliament, to form a coalition to oust sitting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu represents a potential sea change in that country’s politics. Netanyahu is the longest-serving prime minister in Israel’s history — holding that position continuously since 2009, after an earlier stint from 1996 to 1999 — and has deeply imprinted his ideology and leadership style on the country. Many analysts say Netanyahu, who is currently facing indictment for breach of trust, fraud and bribery, has exacerbated deep dysfunctions in Israeli parliamentary politics. Israel has had four separate Knesset elections

USA Today White House correspondent Courtney Subramanian brought attention to the sweets when she tweeted a photo of the cookies that closely resembled Harris. "@vp made an OTR visit to the back of the plane and delivered cookies decorated with the shape of her likeness as well as AF2," she wrote. The baked goods quickly drew ire and mockery from conservative pundits on social media.

Ahead of her arrival, Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei blasted the Biden Administration for "family reunification" policies that enable human trafficking and smuggling. "The message changed to 'we're going to reunite families and we're going to reunite children. The very next day the coyotes were here organizing groups of children to take them to the United States," Giammattei said during an interview with CBS News.

The cities that the "defund" movement has hit the hardest have seen remarkable increases in crime.

My question for today has nothing to do with President Joe Biden’s favorite ice cream. I don’t know if ice cream is a big thing in China. But does China have anything on our president, through first son Hunter Biden’s questionable and clout-heavy China business dealings?

When his father was vice president, as then-President Barack Obama’s point man in China and Ukraine, future first son Hunter followed the big guy off the planes and made friends in China and Ukraine. Hunter reportedly made millions.
