WASHINGTON-With a pro-abortion rights Catholic set to become vice president, next week’s meeting of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops will have to deal with the question of how the church handles politicians like Vice President-elect Joe Biden.

    I think it is intersting that “now” the bishops are debating the politicians, why didn’t they do it before the election to set up a good example for the rest of the nation, especially christians in good standing. “Now” the damage has been done and they are washing their hands of it. But God is watching and can not be deceived neither are we. Why is it that these “catholic” politicians don’t get excomunicated after all the choices they support are morally wrong. They and the bishops I feel are filled with hypocrecy…. just like in Jesus times and those “priestly priests”. Won’t go to heaven themselves and prevent others from achieven it too.
    What a disgrace.
