Charles Chaput, a retired archbishop, wrote that public figures who identify as Catholic give scandal to the faithful when receiving communion by creating the impression that the moral onlaws of the Church are optional.

“When bishops publicly announce their willingness to give communion to Mr. Biden, without clearly teaching the gravity of his facilitating the evil of abortion (and his approval of same-sex relationships), they do a serious disservice to their brother bishops and their people.”

Chaput said Biden should be denied communion because he has demonstrated “he is not in full communion with the Catholic Church.”

While Biden has championed many causes and issues that serve the common good, Chaput said, “many of his actions and words have also supported or smoothed the way for grave moral evils in our public life that have resulted in the destruction of millions of innocent lives.”
