Biden faces scrutiny over policies that don’t seem to align with his Catholic faith

Earlier this year, Joe Biden made history by becoming only the second Roman Catholic to be sworn in as president of the United States.

But according to Washington Examiner columnist Paul Bedard, a new poll released this week found that many Catholics aren’t impressed by the hypocrisy emanating from Biden and politicians like him when it comes to their faith. What’s more, they feel there should be consequences.

The survey cited by Bedard was conducted by a conservative group called CatholicVote, and it sought responses from Catholics who attend mass on either a weekly or monthly basis.

Most Catholics agree

Among the questions was one in which respondents were asked whether they agreed with the statement: “It’s hypocritical of any politician to campaign on their faith to get votes and then strongly advocate for policies completely contrary to their faith once in office.”

Of those who attended mass on a weekly basis, 55% responded that they “strongly” agreed, while another 27% said they agreed somewhat.

Catholics who attended mass monthly were even more adamant, with 67% saying they were in strong agreement with the statement.

Meanwhile, an overwhelming majority of both groups either “strongly” or somewhat agreed that politicians “who identify as Catholic but openly advocate for policies hostile to Church teaching are hypocritical.”

Strong majorities also said that Catholic bishops should speak out on public matters, and that public officials who promote policies contrary to church teachings should not present themselves for Communion.

“Confusion and discord”

The poll’s results come amid what the Associated Press described as “impassioned debate” among Catholic bishops who disagree about “how to address concerns about Catholic politicians, including President Joe Biden, who continue to receive Communion despite supporting abortion rights.”

Along the campaign trail, Biden regularly signaled his support for legalizing abortion and pledged to overturn the Hyde Amendment, a rule that prohibits federal dollars from funding the procedure.

“Catholic politicians who advocate for policies considered ‘gravely immoral’ create confusion and discord among believers,” CatholicVote president Brian Burch told Bedard.

Burch went on: “This polling data should bolster the confidence of Catholic bishops as they prepare to discuss how to recover an understanding of the beauty and richness of the sacrament — among all Catholics. The data is very clear: Bishops have an obligation to act.”
