WASHINGTON, D.C., November 17, 2020 (C-Fam) — The U.S. presidential election is not yet settled. But the campaign is over and, as a U.S.-based non-profit, we are now allowed to comment.

A Biden-Harris administration would be an unmitigated disaster for the unborn child, religious freedom, and the family. They would be far worse than the Clintons, who were awful, and the Obamas, who were worse.

PETITION UPDATE (12/10/20)

Prior to the election on November 3, the U.S. bishops as a whole did not address Joe Biden’s anti-Catholic position regarding faith and morals. The bishops’ lack of clarity is a scandal in itself and probably contributed to the possible election of a pro-abortion “Catholic” to the presidency.

The bishops could have spoken out against Biden’s stance collectively, but they were overwhelmingly silent. Because of this, they will be at least partly responsible for the policies advanced by a Biden administration, in the event that Biden is sworn into office.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition today!

Since Archbishop José H. Gomez and the USCCB prematurely congratulated Joe Biden as “the second United States president to profess the Catholic faith,” Gomez has announced that Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron will lead a “working group” to deal with a Biden Administration.

Although Joe Biden professes to be a Catholic, he supports policies that directly oppose the teaching of the Catholic Church, including abortion, homosexual “marriage,” and transgenderism for children.

“[Biden has] given us reason to believe that he will support policies that are against some fundamental values that we hold dear as Catholics. These policies include the repeal of the Hyde Amendment and the preservation of Roe v. Wade. Both of these policies undermine our pre-eminent priority of the elimination of abortion,” said Gomez.

On November 9, Archbishop Strickland of Tyler, Texas tweeted: “A dark cloud has descended on this nation when the USCCB and Planned Parenthood speak in unison in support of a Biden-Harris administration that supports the slaughter of innocents by abortion for all 9 months of pregnancy.”

Additionally, Archbishop Samuel Aquila of Denver, Colorado and Archbishop Charles Chaput have both declared publicly that Joe Biden “should not receive Holy Communion."

Unfortunately, Cardinal Wilton Gregory of Washington, D.C. has said that he will give Holy Communion to Biden because “it’s a matter of the responsibility that I have as the archbishop to be engaged and to be in dialogue with him, even in those areas where we obviously have some differences.”

Bishop W. Francis Malooly of Wilmington, Delaware and Bishop McElroy of San Diego also congratulated Biden in statements, but they have not indicated whether or not they would administer Holy Communion to him.

The bishops should not congratulate someone who has betrayed his Catholic Faith like Joe Biden has. It's an embarrassment and a scandal.

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has finally spoken on Joe Biden and Kamala Harris....

Not to chastise them for their blatant anti-life, anti-family and anti-Catholic views, but to "congratulate" them on "[being elected]"!

BUT, as everyone know, the anti-Catholic Biden-Harris ticket has NOT been elected.

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition to the U.S. Catholic bishops telling them to retract their premature and offensive statement on the media's call of the election in Biden's favor.

As of the launch of this petition on November 9, NOT ONE STATE has certified the election results. All of the results are tentative and many are being litigated.

So, this is not the time for the bishops to falsely assert that Biden "has received enough votes to be elected the 46th President of the United States."

That's just not true, and for the bishops to willingly play along with the media's attempt to sweep allegations of voter fraud under the rug, is shocking behavior.

And, while Joe Biden may profess the Catholic Faith, he has also stated his support for abortion, homosexual "marriage," and recently, transgenderism for children.

For bishops, therefore, to congratulate a traitor to the Catholic Faith like Joe Biden, it requires a disturbing level of arrogance and pride.

That is not to say they should stand in judgement. But to congratulate such a man, rather than chastise him, sends exactly the wrong message to the faithful, 50% of whom are believed to have supported Biden in his election bid.

Stop ingratiating yourselves to a person who is advocating mass murder! Stop congratulating this anti-Catholic "Catholic."

For goodness' sake, grow a backbone and start defending the Faith!

Here’s is what a President Biden would do right away.

He would remove the U.S. from the Geneva Consensus Declaration that the U.S. led and that says, correctly, that abortion is not a human right, and laws regulating it are for sovereign states to determine. Mr. Biden will pressure other governments to take their names from the declaration and pressure other governments not to join the consensus.

Mr. Biden will immediately begin funding groups overseas that perform and promote abortion. As you well know, the Mexico City Policy forbids this practice. What’s more, President Trump expanded the policy from only the family planning budget to the entire global health budget. All of this will go away and the U.S. will return to funding groups that target unborn babies in the developing world.

Mr. Biden will resume funding the UN Population Fund, a major engine pushing abortion on the developing world. It has been defunded by Republican presidents for having a hand in establishing the brutal Chinese one-child policy which resulted in millions of forced abortions.

Mr. Biden will begin pushing abortion in UN documents under the phrase “reproductive health.” One of the pro-life movement’s proudest achievements was making that phrase controversial again. The Trump administration pledged to remove the term, replace it, or narrowly define it. Furthermore, other governments followed the U.S.’s lead. Mr. Biden will join with the European Union and major UN agencies in pressing abortion as a human right and forcing it upon traditional societies. To the left, abortion is practically a religious sacrament.

Mr. Biden will push abortion as a part of humanitarian law, otherwise known as the laws of war. He will do this through the UN Security Council, where President Trump was able to stop it over these past four years. This will be unprecedented and very dangerous to women in war zones. This will place abortion at a very high level in international law.

Mr. Biden will continue the practice of pushing the LGBT agenda, including pressuring poor countries to adopt this radical agenda that is offensive to most people in the world. Mr. Biden will also push what’s known as “comprehensive sexuality education,” which is a curriculum of the sexual revolution. I would just point out that the UN pro-life movement has survived such enormities before. We survived the Clinton years. We survived the Obama years. As hard as they tried, abortion is still not a part of international law. Sexual orientation and gender identity are not a part of international law. The family is still defined as men and women joined in marriage. We will survive the likes of Joe Biden.

However, this is the warning. He is surrounded by the most radical people we have ever faced, and he will have the full support of the bureaucracy at the UN and the U.S. government that has spent the past four years working against the wishes of President Trump.

Dark days are ahead if Joe Biden is finally, officially, determined to have won this election. Get ready. We are.
