America’s most pro-abortion Catholic “President” Joe Biden met with the head of the Catholic church at the Vatican on Friday, where protests against mandated vaccines have been raging outside the massive walls surrounding the most protected property in Europe.

Protests against vaccine mandates are not restricted to the Vatican; they are happening across Italy, including Milan.

The irony of the pro-COVID vaccine pope meeting with the pro-abortion “president” Joe Biden was thick.
The Catholic church, of which I am a member, claims to put life first. Yet, our pope seems to have slightly different priorities, like open borders, a push for vaccines made from aborted babies, and the radical “green” agenda, which, of course, is a religion unto itself that purports that man, and not God, controls the world’s climate.
It’s no wonder that Joe Biden came away from his visit telling the media that Pope Francis told him he’s a “good Catholic” and he should keep receiving communion. Biden also revealed that the topic of abortion never came up in the 75-minutes they spent together behind the closed doors at the Vatican. He also never mentioned the pope’s feelings on Joe Biden opening up our southern border to the world.
Daily Mail reports – ‘We just talked about the fact he was happy that I was a good Catholic and I should keep receiving communion,’ Biden said after the meeting.
Biden, the nation’s second Catholic president, met with the pontiff amid pressure from conservative Catholics in the United States about his abortion stance.
The U.S. Conference of Bishops is weighing whether to admonish Catholic politicians like Biden and Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who support a woman’s right to an abortion – which Catholics consider a sin – yet also take Holy Communion at mass.
Biden said he did not take communion Friday. Asked whether he and Pope Francis discussed the U.S. Conference of Bishops, the president replied that’s a ‘private conversation.’
And he revealed Pope Francis blessed his son Beau’s rosary beads that he wears around his wrist. Beau Biden died in 2015 from brain cancer.
He said they talked about climate change, including the ‘need’ and ‘moral responsibility’ to deal with it during their meeting.
Biden’s time with the pope on Friday was longer than either of his two predecessors got with the pontiff.
Biden, the nation’s second Catholic president, was scheduled to be with the Pontiff for only an hour but received extra time. In 2017, Francis met then-President DonaldTrump for 30 minutes and, in 2014, Francis met with then-President for 52 minutes. Biden’s meeting with Pope John Paul, in 1980, in contrast, was only 45 minutes.
The meeting was ‘wonderful,’ Biden told reporters afterward.
During their meeting, Biden presented Francis a woven chasuble, or liturgical vestment, made in 1930 by the famed papal tailor Gamarelli and used by the pope’s Jesuit order in the U.S., where it was held in the archives of Holy Trinity Church, Biden’s regular parish in Washington. President John F. Kennedy, the first Catholic U.S. president, also worshipped at Holy Trinity.
‘I hope you find this gift from the United States appropriate,’ Biden said.
Biden also presented the pope with a presidential challenge coin.
‘I’m not sure this is appropriate, but there’s a tradition in America. That the president has what is called a command coin,’ the president explained.
Biden said it was meant for ‘warriors and leaders.’
‘And you are the most significant warrior for peace I’ve ever met,’ Biden told the pope.
‘But I know my son would want me to give this to you because on the back of it I have the state of Delaware and the 261st, the unit my son served with,’ he said, referencing the late Beau Biden and his service in Iraq with the Delaware Army National Guard.
‘The tradition is, and I’m only kidding about this, the next time I see you, you don’t have it, you have to buy the drinks,’ Biden continued. ‘I’m the only Irishman you’ve ever met who’s never had a drink,’ the president added.
The pope spoke back to Biden in Italian, though was heard making a joke about whiskey.
There’s nothing funny about the pope embracing the most pro-abortion “president” in history.
