Segment 2 & 3 – Bishop Paprocki: Biden Mocks Catholic Faith by Invoking Christ in Pro-Abortion Message
“Bishop Thomas Paprocki of the Diocese of Springfield, Illinois, is accusing President Joe Biden of “making a mockery of our Catholic faith” after he made the Sign of the Cross while promoting abortion. Biden, who is the country’s second Catholic president, made the Sign of the Cross at an abortion rally in Tampa, Florida, more than two weeks ago. In his speech, the president criticized Catholic Gov. Ron DeSantis for signing a bill that restricts abortion after six weeks of pregnancy. The governor had previously helped enact legislation limiting abortion to 15 weeks of pregnancy.”  Read more here.
