Biden's Bishop Will not Permit Him, Even if Elected VP, to Speak at Catholic Schools

By John-Henry Westen

DELEWARE, August 26, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - In an interview with Bob Krebs, the Communications Director for the Catholic Diocese of Wilmington, to which Senator Joseph Biden belongs, Krebs confirmed that Biden's Bishop will not permit the Senator even if elected Vice President of the United States of America to speak at Catholic schools.

When asked for the Bishop's take on Senator Biden and his stand in favor of abortion, Krebs directed LifeSiteNews.com to Bishop Michael Saltarelli's 2004 statement on 'Catholics in Political Life' which, said Krebs, "very plainly states Bishop's position in this matter."

In that document Bishop Saltarelli notes that, in line with the US Bishops Conference policy, "Our Catholic institutions will not honor Catholic politicians who take pro-abortion legislative positions or invite them to speak at our functions or schools."

LifeSiteNews.com called the diocesan communications director a second time to ask if that specific ban on speaking at Catholic schools or Catholic functions would apply to Biden, even if he became the Vice President.

But he can still receive Holy Communion?

It's just a cracker in his murderous mouth.

If what I just wrote made you sad or angry,
it was probably just a joke.

Ye, search is messed up. For example, title search by date for Catholic turns up nothing more recent than 8/24/08.

It should be fixed soon.

Good.

I think that the Roman Catholic Church in the US is reaching a breaking point. The stand on abortion will be the catalyst for a lot of CINO’s to break away.
