Archbishop scolds pro-choice Biden

DENVER | Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr. arrived at the Democratic National Convention on Monday amid rumblings over whether his pro-choice Catholicism would help or hurt the Democratic ticket.


But the party's hopes of winning the critical Catholic vote took a hit Sunday when Archbishop Charles Chaput of Denver said Mr. Biden should avoid taking Communion as a result of his pro-choice stand on abortion.

Archbishop Chaput, who was scheduled to lead a pro-life candlelight vigil Monday night here in front of Planned Parenthood, called Mr. Biden's support for abortion rights "seriously wrong," said archdiocese spokeswoman Jeanette De Melo.

"I certainly presume his good will and integrity," said the archbishop, "and I presume that his integrity will lead him to refrain from presenting himself for Communion if he supports a false 'right' to abortion."

The archbishop, who was not invited to speak at any convention events in what appeared to be a deliberate snub, told the Associated Press that he would like to speak privately with Mr. Biden.

Colorado’s Governor Ritter used his D.A. office to comply with the edict from Bishop Chaput – help the "immigrants." Ritter and Deputy D.A. Stephanie Villafuerte concocted many nefarious schemes for reducing felony criminal charges to simple misdemeanors so the perps would not be deported.

Maybe brother Chaput needs to apologize to Americans for promoting and encouraging Lawlessness.

Perhaps he needs to confess his sin of Lawlessness and repent and turn away from public sin.

NAsbU Matthew 7:23 "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.'

Once again, provide a verifiable source that support your allegations. You do understand the seriousness of bearing false witness, don’t you?
