Catholic Bishops Consider Rule to Block Communion for Abortion-Supporting Politicians Like Joe Biden

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops agreed to formulate a new statement on the receipt of communion by politicians who support abortion.

On Friday, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) overwhelmingly agreed to formulate a new statement on the receipt of communion by politicians who support radical abortion, gay, and transgender policies.

Democrats, including Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi who claim to be “devout Catholics,” nonetheless support radical abortion policies, and far left policies that advance the hardcore gay agenda that harms our children.

For years, conservative Catholics have urged church officials to block these apostates from receiving the sacrament of the Eucharist (communion) because they openly support policies that directly conflict with church teachings.

Now, the USCCB is preparing to address these very issues hoping to craft a final rule on how to treat politicians who blatantly thumb their nose at the church all while claiming to be members in good standing.

Leftists, though, claim the rules change is all about politics.

According to the New York Times:

Anti-abortion advocates already see political opportunity in the bishops’ plan. The organization Students for Life held rallies in seven cities on Thursday to urge the bishops to vote “yes.” So far, Republicans are “not having much luck demonizing Biden,” so they are testing abortion as a potential issue on which to criticize him, as they did with transgender athletes in youth sports and critical race theory, said Mike Mikus, a political consultant in Pittsburgh who advises Democratic campaigns.

“The point is to mobilize Republicans; it is all a play to the base,” he said.

But the truth is, the church allows its integrity to be damaged by sitting idly by as Democrats who claim to be Catholic to continue defying tenets of the church. The church makes a mockery of itself by doing nothing to punish these apostates and allow them to defy the church at will even as they claim to be members of that church.

Biden is typical of these anti-Catholic Catholics. Biden claims to be a practicing Catholic, but he also unreservedly supports abortion on demand, the gay agenda, and advance of the transgender scheme.

By all rights, Biden should not be allowed to go around claiming he is a strict Catholic even as he violates some of the church’s central teaching.

Denying him communion is the least that the church should do.

George Soros Drops $1M to Defund Police During Major Crimewave

Wow.

George Soros

If you were to ask around in the farther-flung corners of the conservative internet, you’d not find much high praise for George Soros. The liberal billionaire has been spending much of his time, (and wealth), bullying the sociopolitical system into leaning to the left, and he hasn’t been trying to hide it at all.  This has made him a bit of a boogeyman within conservative circles, and rightly so. His latest bit of “philanthropy” appears to fall right in line with his previous maneuvers. Liberal mega-donor George Soros has directed $1 million to an activist group attempting to defund the police as violent crime surges in major urban centers across the nation. Soros sent the million dollars via his Color Of Change PAC on May 14, according to Federal Election Commission files obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. The organization describes itself as “the nation’s largest online racial justice organization” and actively engages in efforts to defund police departments such as spreading an online petition calling for “divesting from and dismantling the systems that unjustly harm Black people.” The group also backed a push by the Milwaukee City Council to defund the police. And they aren’t mincing their words. “Policing is a violent institution that must end,” the group’s president wrote in a statement supporting the move. “We imagine a country where there is enough money to educate our children, care for our sick and feed those who are financially unstable. Defunding the police allows for this vision.” The move comes amid a massive crime spike in liberal cities such as Atlanta, Chicago, and New York.

Southern Restaurant Scorched After Refusing to Serve Unvaccinated People

The unvaccinated are quickly becoming second class citizens in America.

In these late-stages of the pandemic, there are a number of emerging plot lines that almost seem more controversial than those that we experienced at the beginning of this fiasco, and it makes us wonder if some of it isn’t just for show. For instance, in the restaurant industry, where just about every businesses owner is struggling mightily, there are a number of different approaches to dealing with this latest “delta” variant of COVID-19.  This is of particular note now that many establishments had reopened during the lull in cases, and are now hanging on for dear life during “delta”. But one restaurant in the deep south has thrown their prosperity aside, and are making the controversial decision to serve only vaccinated customers. An Atlanta restaurant is making the bold decision to serve only customers who are fully vaccinated. Argosy Restaurant and Bar, located in East Atlanta Village, is one of the first businesses in Georgia to mandate with signs that say “No Vax, No Service.” The company owner made the decision earlier this week after he and several of his employees, who were all fully vaccinated, contracted the virus as breakthrough cases. The owner has suggested that these breakthrough cases were worse for business than treating the unvaccinated as though they are second class citizens. “We did it strictly as a business decision after multiple staff members tested positive,” said restaurant owner Armando Celentano. “We had to close down during a busy weekend, losing out on tens of thousands of dollars.” The decisions certainly stirred up a great deal of conversation on social media, where the restaurant received both praise and criticism for its decision.
