Catholic Priest Denies Holy Communion to Joe Biden over Abortion Stance 

Father Robert Morey of Saint Anthony Church in Florence, denied Holy Communion to former Vice President Joe Biden because of his stance on abortion.  Biden has been Catholic his whole life.  This incident was confirmed by the Priest on Oct 28, “Sadly, this past Sunday I had to refuse Holy Communion to former Vice President Joe Biden.” This was Father Morey’s comment made to the Florence Morning News via email…

Father Morey stated further, “Any public figure who advocates for abortion places himself or herself outside of church teaching,”  Morey also said it’s his responsibility as a priest to share difficult truths with people who come into his church,” He then added, “ I will keep Mr.Biden in my prayers.

Biden has always said that he did not support abortion personally but he did not want to impose his views on others.  In 1974, a year after the Supreme Court’s Roe Vs Wade decision Biden told The Washingtonian, “ I don’t like the Supreme Court’s decision on abortion. “ In 2007, Biden said during a debate, “ I strongly support Roe Vs Wade.”  Father is going by Mr. Biden’s most recent affirmation.

Marion Smith, Executive Director of Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation said, “ When we don’t educate our youngest generations about the historical truths of 100 million victims murdered at the hands of communist regimes over the past century, we shouldn’t  be surprised at their willingness to embrace Marxist ideas.”  Only a little over half of the Millenials polled said The Declaration of Independence ‘guarantees freedom and equality’ better than the Communist Manifesto.

CBP: Border Wall Going Up 

Customs and Border Protection officials are saying illegal immigration is going down as well as crime on the American side of the border of Mexico. The reason they say is President Trump’s border wall is going up.  CBP said illegal aliens who hope to cross the border will now be confronted with over 400 miles of the new border wall by the year’s end.

Recent data provided by the CBP;  states that  76 miles of new wall is complete, 157 miles are under construction and another 276 miles are under construction.  CBP Chief Mark Morgan said, “ The frontline men and women of CBP tell me walls work and help them do their job.” He continued, “ That matters and while not everyone who crosses the border is bad, this wall is important to protect USBP ( United States Border Patrol) agents and to stop drugs and criminals from entering your communities.”

These latest reports from CBP on the progress of the border wall would not have been possible if the US Supreme Court did not overturn a lower federal court’s injunction that would have stopped President Trump from using military money for building the wall.
