Archbishop Naumann: President Biden ‘should stop defining himself as a devout Catholic’

February 16, 2021

CWN Editor's Note: “Although people have given this president power and authority, he cannot define what it is to be a Catholic and what Catholic moral teaching is,” said Archbishop Joseph Naumann of Kansas City, the chairman of the US bishops’ pro-life committee. “What he is doing now is usurping the role of the bishops and confusing people. He’s declaring that he’s Catholic, and is going to force people to support abortion through their tax dollars. The bishops need to correct him, as the president is acting contrary to the Catholic faith.”

    Amen! Please, bishops and all clergy, stand up for life! We need your leadership. We especially need you to stand up to Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi, who are causing so much confusion and scandal in the Body of Christ.

    Unfortunately, it is the Bishops themselves who have allowed this to happen because they have been too quiet on true church teachings, especially abortion.........this is what they reap after failing to sow truth. Unless they take a strong stand, this church will remain a laughingstock and split on the issue of abortion. Actual excommunication should be considered.
