Biden's 'devoutness' expected to earn him a pass

At least one pro-life leader is taking a dim view of President Joe Biden's upcoming visit to the Vatican.

Biden, who claims to be a "devout Catholic" but is a vibrant supporter of abortion on demand, is set to meet with Pope Francis in late October. The pope recently stated abortion amounts to "murder." In contrast, notes Hugh Brown of American Life League, Biden is an ardent supporter abortion up to birth.

"And this is a guy who also personally officiated a homosexual wedding … right? Is that a simple trip to the confessional and three Hail Marys?" he asks rhetorically. "One would imagine that the response [from the pope] would be You have got to spend the rest of your life correcting these errors."

Brown argues that the pope "absolutely has that responsibility" to correct – but he doesn't think highly of the current pope, suggesting Francis does nothing but sow the seeds of confusion.

"And we know that the confusion is the work of the enemy, and so I don't know if he's just a lost soul," Brown laments. "My opinion of the man is he leans on his own understanding, which is hubris when you're in that position …. What [we're getting] is political correctness; and that's the work of the enemy."

LifeNews.com points out that Biden has "earned … sharp rebuke" from Catholic leaders in the U.S. for his extensive pro-abortion record – but Brown doesn't expect the pope will correct the American president.
