2020 Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden was denied communion at a South Carolina Catholic church Sunday because of the former vice president’s stance on abortion.
The South Carolina Morning News reported that Father Robert E. Morey of Saint Anthony Catholic Church denied Biden communion because of the presidential candidate and lifelong Catholic’s aggressive pro-abortion beliefs.
“Holy Communion signifies we are one with God, each other and the Church. Our actions should reflect that,” Morey told the South Carolina newspaper. “Any public figure who advocates for abortion places himself or herself outside of Church teaching.”
