Bishops & Biden

Archbishop Jose Gomez, (former Bishop of San Antonio, Texas) now head of the U.S. bishops’ conference, offered both praise and criticism of Joe Biden. Archbishop Gomez praised Biden on immigration, refugees, combating racism, and climate change, but said: “He has also given us reason to believe that he will support policies that are against some fundamental values that we hold dear as Catholics. These policies include the repeal of the #Hyde Amendment and the preservation of #RoevsWade. Both of these policies undermine our #PreeminentIssue of our time as a priority of the elimination of #Abortion.”
