Despite being very pro-abortion, Joe Biden has repeatedly described himself as a "devout Catholic." Now there is another reason to doubt his Catholic faith.
Recently President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden released their tax information. It was filed jointly with earnings of $610,702. The two donated $2,800 to the Catholic church, spreading the donations to three different churches - $2,200 to St. Joseph on the Brandywine in Wilmington, Delaware, $550 to Holy Trinity in Washington and $50 to St. Edmond’s in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, where they own a vacation home.
The Biden family donated 0.46 percent of their income in support of their Catholic church.

Outside of donations to Catholic churches, the Bidens also listed a donation of $1,800 to a Westminster Presbyterian Church in Rehoboth.
So how much do Catholics usually donate to the church? It's generally accepted to give up about 10% of one's earnings to the church. It says on Catholic.com: “Although the Church teaches that offering some form of material support to the Church is obligatory for all Catholic adults who are able to do so, it doesn’t specify what percent of one’s income should be given.”
Archbishop Joseph Naumann of Kansas City, chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities, called out his pro-abortion stance.
“The president should stop defining himself as a devout Catholic, and acknowledge that his view on abortion is contrary to Catholic moral teaching,” Naumann said.
“It would be a more honest approach from him to say he disagreed with his Church on this important issue and that he was acting contrary to Church teaching,” Naumann added.

“When he says he is a devout Catholic, we bishops have the responsibility to correct him. Although people have given this president power and authority, he cannot define what it is to be a Catholic and what Catholic moral teaching is,” Naumann also said.
“He’s declaring that he’s Catholic, and is going to force people to support abortion through their tax dollars. The bishops need to correct him, as the president is acting contrary to the Catholic faith,” he said.
