Reflection - Catholics elected Joe Biden
By: James Morse, January 23, 2021
Today, looking at the online National Catholic Register I saw an article that greatly upset me, “US Bishops Urge President Biden to Reject Abortion Rights After ‘Deeply Disturbing’ Statement”.
I was so upset that I wrote the following to EWTN who own the National Catholic Register: Amazing, no, an astounding reaction from the USCCB … "President Joe Biden’s statement backing legal abortion on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade drew swift reaction from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.” From National Catholic Register, Jan. 23, 2021
There is More ...
“We strongly urge the president to reject abortion and promote life-affirming aid to women and communities in need,” Archbishop Joseph Naumann of Kansas City in Kansas, the U.S. bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities head, said Jan. 22.
“It is deeply disturbing and tragic that any president would praise and commit to codifying a Supreme Court ruling that denies unborn children their most basic human and civil right, the right to life, under the euphemistic disguise of a health service,” he
said. This is a surprise to the Bishops !! Biden has never made any secret — ever — of his support for abortion. And now after saying nothing about him at any time prior to the election, the USCCB is disturbed??
This is a surprise to the Bishops !! Biden has never made any secret — ever — of his support for abortion. And now after saying nothing about him at any time prior to the election, the USCCB is disturbed?? There is no doubt that the Catholic vote elected Joe Biden. No one else; no fraud; just Catholics voting for a staunch advocate of abortion aided by words of silence from the USCCB. Is this a sop to us that they were caught off guard?
Catholics look to the USCCB for guidance and look where they guided the flock, straight into the hands of betrayal. Joe Biden has not betrayed the flock, our shepherds have.
Here are the facts.
§ Catholics comprise 25% to 27% of the national vote.
§ 85% of today’s Catholics say their faith is “somewhat” to “very important” to them.
§ 155,504,095 people voted in the presidential election.
§ 25% of 155,504,095 is 38,876,023.
§ 85% of 38,876,023 is 33,044,620.
§ None of the 33,044,620 Catholic voters should have voted for Joe Biden.
§ The Popular Vote:
§ Biden. 81,281,502
§ Trump 74,222,593
7,058,909 differenceIf Catholics had voted what they say is their faith, Trump would have won the popular vote
This is a rough estimate of the quantifiable failure of the Church.
