Biden and Nancy Pelosi were welcomed to the Vatican and received communion during the Popes’ inauguration some weeks ago.

(Sodom and Gomorrah, flush with libertarians and liberals, short on social conservatives.)
If this is just the start of what will be mandated globally, all I can say is, "I'll believe it when I see it.". Because I am Pro-life, I welcome ANY actions that will help to lessen the number of abortions that occur on a daily basis. Maybe if American Catholic politicians came face-to-face with a leader who means what he says and says what he means and does all he can to ensure his decisions are implemented, they just might have a change of heart. I'm not naive enough to believe they all will, but maybe enough will so that it does make a difference in further abortion laws.
Yet, even if this Pope manages to actually make great strides in calling unrepentant pro-abortion Catholics to the carpet and puts teeth into his declarations, forcing them to choose their religion over politics, it will not affect my decision to remain separated from the Roman Catholic Church. As important as the abortion issue is, it doesn't trump the Gospel as the highest priority. Until the Catholic Church returns to teaching justification by grace through faith in Christ apart from works - as the early church did, they will remain separated from God teaching an accursed gospel.

(God is ready to assume full responsibility for the life wholly yielded to Him.)
If so therein lies a huge credibility problem for the Pope

But now that this Pope has settled in, the rules ARE GOING TO BE ENFORCED.
