Joe Biden was in Florence, South Carolina last weekend when he was reportedly denied Holy Communion on Sunday morning at a Florence church. Biden had been campaigning in Florence over the weekend.
Father Robert E. Morey of Saint Anthony Catholic Church confirmed Monday afternoon that he had denied the presidential candidate Holy Communion because of his stance on abortion.
According to SC Now, Biden, a lifelong Catholic, had attended the church’s 9 a.m. Mass.
“Sadly, this past Sunday, I had to refuse Holy Communion to former Vice President Joe Biden. Holy Communion signifies we are one with God, each other, and the Church. Our actions should reflect that. Any public figure who advocates for abortion places himself or herself outside of Church teaching. I will keep Mr. Biden in my prayers.”
The interesting thing is that the SC Now article says, “His position on abortion is unclear.” That’s total BS.
Fr. Ryan and Fr. Matthew commented on this bogus statement on Twitter:
“God bless this priest. He’s got stones.” – Fr. Ryan
“Like someone paid a journalist who wrote that about Biden.” – Fr. Matthew
Bravo to these two priests and Fr. Morey!
"His position on abortion is unclear." Like someone paid a journalist who wrote that about Biden.

Joe Biden has been in hot water over his flip-flopping on different aspects of abortion. One recent flip-flop was on the Hyde Amendment that opposes using taxpayer dollars for abortions. Biden said he was for it, and then when the left went nuts about his position, he flipped and said he was against it.
So, Joe Biden wants taxpayers to pay for abortions because he calls killing a baby in the womb “healthcare” :
OUR PREVIOUS REPORT FROM JUNE: Wow! Is this the candidate who is in the lead for the Democrats? Former Vice President Biden has flip-flopped on just about everything he’s asked about.
His latest reversal is on support for the Hyde Amendment that prohibits the use of taxpayer dollars for abortions. He told an audience in Atlanta at the ‘I Will Vote’ Gala in Buckhead that “times have changed”…
Joe Biden reversed his position on the Hyde Amendment moments ago at a DNC gala in Atlanta, saying that “if I believe health care is a right as I do, I can no longer support an amendment that makes that right dependent” on a woman’s income.
BREAKING: @JoeBiden just announced that in the current environment where women’s rights are under such attack nationwide, he can no longer support the Hyde Amendment #RepealHyde #gapol #iwillvotegala pic.twitter.com/ITFkeRbYra

The buzz is that ‘women’s rights’ are ‘being attacked’ so we need to force taxpayers to pay for abortions. Lefty Logic!
The Democrats are saying that if abortion isn’t paid for by the government, only rich women will be able to afford them. Biden makes this class warfare point a la Obama who was a master at using class warfare.
The Hyde amendment is a decades-old ban on using federal money for certain abortions.
David Axelrod called the move by Biden a “mess”:
AXELROD IS RIGHT BUT WILL THE PEOPLE CARE?
