GREENVILLE, Delaware, November 2, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — Faithful Catholics protested Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden as he entered and exited morning Mass this past Sunday in Greenville, Delaware.
The demonstrators held signs saying, “No Catholic can vote for Joe Biden,” “Joe, No devout Catholic supports Abortion,” and “Joe Biden Equals Abortion, Euthanasia and Infanticide.”
As the former vice president entered St. Joseph on the Brandywine Catholic Church, they are reported to have urged him to “repent for your soul,” and upon his exit they chanted, “Joe, you’re a disgrace to the Catholic faith!”

The former vice president has often emphasized his Catholic identity throughout his political career. For example, in a formal statement in August, he asserted, “my faith has been the bedrock foundation of my life.”
But while Mr. Biden publicly emphasizes his being a practicing Catholic, he remains a zealous supporter of decriminalized preborn child killing, which the Catechism of the Catholic Church affirms to be always “gravely contrary to the moral law” and an “abominable crime.” Though the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has ranked opposition to legal abortion as the “preeminent priority” for faithful citizenship, Mr. Biden advocates the codifying of Roe v. Wade into federal law and promises to appoint pro-abortion justices to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The following core conservative and Christian values will all be affected, one way or the other, by the outcome of the election:
- The protection of human life from conception till natural death.
- The protection of the natural family.
- The protection of our right to freely and meaningfully practice our religion both inside and outside our houses of worship, without interference from the state.
- And, the protection of our freedoms - especially, our freedom of speech, our freedom of assembly and licit medical freedom.
So, where do the candidates stand on Life, Family, Faith and Freedom?
President Trump has already proven himself to be pro-life. He reinstated the Mexico City Policy, prohibiting U.S. foreign aid from paying for and, or, promoting abortions. And, he has also pledged to sign a late-term abortion ban and veto any pro-abortion legislation.
Former Vice President Biden supports tax-payer funded abortion (i.e., getting rid of the Hyde Amendment), and has been endorsed by Planned Parenthood and NARAL.
President Trump’s tax cuts have helped 82% of middle-class American families, which saved an average of $1,260 on their taxes according to Breitbart News.
On the contrary, if former Vice President Joe Biden implements the "Green New Deal," thousands of energy sector jobs will be eliminated. What’s more, Biden plans on raising taxes by more than three trillion dollars – a move which could severely hurt the average American family.
Additionally, President Trump backs school choice for all American families, which will allow parents to choose the school that best meets the needs of their children.
However, former Vice President Biden supports policies that are not in favor school choice. His policies would hurt families by keeping parents from choosing a school that would help their children and provide them with the best opportunities.
Finally, President Trump's administration has co-sponsored the Geneva Consensus Declaration, which reaffirms that “the family is the natural and fundamental group unit of society and is entitled to protection by society and the State", and which seeks to achieve the "strengthening of family as the foundational unit of society."
While, earlier this year, former Vice President Biden revealed his “LGBTQ+ and equality” plan, which he will use to “protect,” “enforce,” and “advance” the homosexual agenda and homosexual “rights."
President Trump’s second-term agenda includes the promise to "defend the freedoms of religious believers and organizations."
Former Vice President Biden stands against conscience rights - vowing to sue the Little Sisters of the Poor to force them to pay for abortion and contraceptives. And, Biden also stands against religious freedom, as he and the Democrats support mandating that pro-life Christian business-owners, like cake bakers, violate their religious beliefs.
If re-elected, President Trump has promised to minimize lockdowns and mask mandates.
If elected, former Vice President Biden has promised to enact a nationwide mask mandate, and allow more lockdowns.
Now that you know where the candidates stand, please consider voting to preserve Life, the Family, our Faith, and our Freedoms!

In addition to his ardent support of homosexual unions, Biden has also promised to reimpose Obamacare mandates forcing the Little Sisters of the Poor and other Christian organizations to violate their religious principles in the funding of contraception and abortifacients.
For these reasons, and more, several activist pro-life Catholic priests have repeatedly affirmed the validity of the slogans displayed by the protestors above.
Fr. Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life, told LifeSiteNews in July that “not only can Catholics not vote for (Joe) Biden in good conscience, but they can’t vote for Democrats, period. And neither can anyone else.”
“It’s time to stop pretending we can be neutral. The Democrat Party has set itself up against the Church, against the unborn, and against America,” said Pavone. “They do not deserve one ounce of power in this country, and anyone who gives it to them shares the guilt of all the evil they do. And that starts with our religious leaders.”
Fr. Michael Orsi, a former chaplain of Ave Maria School of Law in Naples wrote, “The devil has made his home among the leadership of the Democratic Party for some time now, and found it a most hospitable environment.”
Father Stephen Imbarrato, an activist pro-life Catholic priest, a regular on EWTN, and a member of Red Rose Rescues, declared simply, unequivocally, “No Catholic can vote for Joe Biden.”
“He is a walking and talking scandal to his Catholic faith and has rightly been refused the Eucharist because he persists in ongoing mortal sin thus separating himself from communion with the Church. He scandalizes the Catholic faith in so many ways that objectively he actually seems ‘anti Catholic’ in his beliefs.”
In October 2019, Mr. Biden was denied Holy Communion by Fr. Robert E. Morey of St. Anthony Catholic Church in Florence, South Carolina. “Any public figure who advocates for abortion places himself or herself outside of Church teaching,” he said.
If February of last year Bishop Thomas Daly of Spokane, Washington said that pro-abortion “Catholic” politicians should not present themselves for communion in his diocese. A few months later Bishop Thomas Paprocki of Springfield, Illinois issued a similar warning.
