CWN Editor's Note: “We congratulate Mr. Biden and acknowledge that he joins the late President John F. Kennedy as the second United States president to profess the Catholic faith,” Archbishop José Gomez of Los Angeles, president of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, said in a November 7 statement. “May she [the Blessed Virgin Mary] help us to work together to fulfill the beautiful vision of America’s missionaries and founders — one nation under God, where the sanctity of every human life is defended and freedom of conscience and religion are guaranteed.”

    This statement is worthy of Babylon Bee!! Peacemakers??? Where were the bishops during the riots and burning of the cities? Both Biden and Harris are decidedly anti-Catholic, no matter what Joe or Archbishop Gomez says.
