CV NEWS FEED // A prominent American bishop has publicly called on President Joe Biden to repent of his support for abortion and the scandal it has caused.
Bishop Michael Burbidge of the Diocese of Arlington, which covers Northern Virginia and borders Washington, D.C., spoke candidly about President Biden in a recent episode of his podcast, Walk Humbly.
Asked by co-host Billy Atwell, chief communications officer for the diocese, about how Catholics should understand Biden’s profession of the Catholic faith on the one hand and his advocacy for abortion without limits on the other, Burbidge first expressed concern for the state of Biden’s soul.
“I find it very troubling that President Biden continues to contradict the most basic teachings of the faith he professes,” Burbidge said:
It’s a shame. It really is, both for the state, for his own soul, and also because he’s missing the opportunity to do good in his role that is unmatched, the ability he has to do good. And it’s so sad to see him not doing that. Imagine if he chose to support women in need rather than encourage wider access to abortion.
“This is causing great scandal when he announces both his faith and his pro-abortion position publicly. I pray that he will change his position, repent of the scandal and the damage that is being caused,” Burbidge added.
