Democratic 2o020 hopeful Joe Biden was reportedly denied communion by a priest while attending a South Carolina church over the weekend.
Biden attended the Saint Anthony Catholic Church in Florence on Sunday and was denied Holy Communion by Father Robert E. Morey despite being a lifelong Catholic. This is according to a report from the South Carolina Morning News.
If you're Catholic (left, right, center or apolitical) I'm curious to know your feelings on this story:https://t.co/KDJ93KXF7K

“Sadly, this past Sunday, I had to refuse Holy Communion to former Vice President Joe Biden,” Father Morey said in a statement to the newspaper.
“Holy Communion signifies we are one with God, each other and the Church. Our actions should reflect that. Any public figure who advocates for abortion places himself or herself outside of Church teaching.”
“I will keep Mr. Biden in my prayers,” Morey also said.
Let's give a great big round of applause to Father Robert E. Morey who denied Sleepy Joe Biden communion because of his views on abortion.👏👏👏
So refreshing to see someone actually defend his values rather than stay silent.

When reached for comment on Monday night the Biden campaign did not respond.
For a long time, Joe Biden was one of the more conservative people in the Democratic Party. Well, the way things have transitioned, that is no longer an option. The 2020 Democratic candidates are all pushing as far-left as they can.

Shouldn't Joe Biden be held accountable like all other Catholics? Enabling abortion across the country is certainly not a mark of a good Catholic.
