In a blog post signed by U.S. Conference of Bishop Executive members Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz, Bishop Richard J. Malone and Archbishop Thomas G. Wenski, the U.S. bishops have made a weak response to Vice President Joe Biden, who recently publicly rejoiced after having officiated at a homosexual ‘wedding’.  The U.S. bishops did not even name Biden in the post nor announce that he would no longer be given Holy Communion.

The strongest statement in the release said:

“When a prominent Catholic politician publicly and voluntarily officiates at a ceremony to solemnize the relationship of two people of the same-sex, confusion arises regarding Catholic teaching on marriage and the corresponding moral obligations of Catholics. What we see is a counter witness, instead of a faithful one founded in the truth. “

The statement concluded asking for prayers for “Catholic leaders in public life, that they may fulfill the responsibilities entrusted to them with grace and courage and offer a faithful witness that will bring much needed light to the world.”
