US NEWS: American bishops to weigh union rules that could punish Biden for abortion

BALTIMORE, Md., Nov 16 – Roman Catholic bishops in the United States are expected to debate whether President Joe Biden’s support for abortion rights should deprive him of food, a dispute that has escalated in the church since the advent of the Democratic Alliance.

At their meeting in Baltimore, the bishops were scheduled to discuss a scripture that clarified the meaning of the sacrament, a sacrament that is the basis of faith. The bishops are divided over whether the document should clearly define the legitimacy of prominent Catholics such as Biden to occupy a house on the grounds of political opposition to the teachings of the church.

The meeting lasts until Thursday, and the bill requires a yes vote for two-thirds of the conference to pass.

Some law-abiding bishops say the conference should rebuke politicians such as Biden who support abortion rights as opposed to church doctrine. The team requested that the document set out specific requirements for the sacrament.

Some have warned against the use of the Lord’s Evening Meal and do not abstain from voting in certain political contexts.

About 55% of US Catholics believe that abortion should be legal in all or most cases, compared with 59% of the general population, according to a April Pew Research survey.

Biden, the first Catholic president of the United States since John F. Kennedy, has stated his opposition to abortions but still supports the right to choose. He vowed to protect the rights of abortions under the strictest laws imposed by the provinces. Last month, her superiors asked the Supreme Court to overturn Texas law banning abortions after six weeks.

The debate over the legitimacy of the association created more tensions as the church struggled to maintain its broken membership. About 20% of American Catholics have left the church over the past two decades, according to a Gallup poll in March, as scandals of sexual harassment have arisen involving abusive clergy and members disagreeing on social issues.

The draft of the document, published earlier this month by the Catholic magazine The Pillar, does not name Biden or any other politician by name, but states that “individuals exercising some form of public authority have a special responsibility to unite the church. “It says that Catholics living in a state of” mortal sin “without repentance should not partake, but it does not say who should remain in the judgment.

A conference spokesman declined to comment on the draft.

The conference puts it on its website that it will not implement a “national policy” to withhold political participation.

Biden met privately with Pope Francis at the Vatican last month and was later told by the pope that he was a “good Catholic” who could have dinner.

Ahead of that meeting, Pope Francis, whose liberation theology has disrupted many law-abiding Catholics since his election in 2013, appeared to criticize American bishops for treating the issue politically rather than the clergy.
