The words “devout Catholic” should not be used to describe President Joe Biden, according to a Catholic priest who says Biden’s actions have been solidly contrary to what the church teaches. “Throughout our lives we walk the line, magnifying God’s holiness or reflecting sinful pride and rebellion. It is holy and good continually to seek the crown of sanctity. But a single seriously evil act—committed with sufficient freedom and informed consent—threatens our eternity. So it is presumptuous and dangerous to proclaim oneself as a devout Catholic or to encourage (or even allow) the description,” the Rev. Jerry Pokorsky wrote on the website CatholicCulture.org. “President Biden’s supporters repeatedly claim that he is a devout Catholic. In 2005, Biden himself protested those who questioned his Catholicism: ‘The next Republican that tells me I’m not religious I’m going to shove my rosary beads down their throat,’” he wrote.
