Biden's new bishop will not confront him

Catholic World News - December 09, 2008

Bishop W. Francis Malooly, newly installed leader of the Wilmington, Delaware diocese in which vice-president-elect Joseph Biden lives, has said that he will not confront Biden on the abortion issue. "My own conscience tells me that I have a better chance of helping someone if I don't alienate" him, the bishop told a group of young people at a Theology on Tap session. The bishop indicated that he did not think it is appropriate to bar a supporter of abortion from receiving the Eucharist because ''I don't know everyone's conscience.'' He did not address the question of public scandal that arises when a public advocate of abortion receives Communion.
