While he considers himself personally pro-life, the second U.S. president to identify as Catholic publicly supports abortion – something that the Church considers a grave evil. That’s why pro-life and Catholic figures recently challenged the Washington Post after it called President Biden “very Catholic.”
On April 28, the Post published a story by religion reporter Michelle Boorstein with the headline, “Biden’s abortion rights stance triggers coming debate among Catholic bishops on Communion.” The Post’s tweet sharing Boorstein’s story ended up capturing more attention than the story itself for describing Biden as “a very Catholic president who supports abortion rights.” That’s because the Catholic Church’s teaching on abortion is clear, as explained in its catechism.
“A rising group of right-wing U.S. Catholic bishops is colliding with a very Catholic president who supports abortion rights,” the Washington Post tweeted on April 28.
Ryan T. Anderson, the president of the Ethics & Public Policy Center, suggested rearranging the tweet’s text to, “Or: A group of very Catholic US Bishops is colliding with a left-wing president who supports the legality of killing innocent children.”
Lila Rose, the president of pro-life group Live Action, called out the Post on Twitter: “‘Very Catholic who supports abortion rights’ is impossible, like saying ‘a devout Muslim who loves pork.’”
We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our Substack page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
