A South Carolina priest received praise from pro-life advocates for refusing to offer presidential candidate Joe Biden communion due to his abortion stance.
Biden, who throughout his Senate career has tracked toward the more conservative factions of the party on abortion, has been forced to move to the left in an era where extremists have taken over.
As such, Father Robert E. Morey of Saint Anthony Catholic Church in Florence, South Carolina felt it necessary to deny Biden communion this past Sunday.
“Sadly, this past Sunday, I had to refuse Holy Communion to former Vice President Joe Biden,” Morey said in a statement to local newspapers.
“Holy Communion signifies we are one with God, each other and the Church. Our actions should reflect that,” he continued. “Any public figure who advocates for abortion places himself or herself outside of Church teaching.”
Morey added that he “will keep Mr. Biden in my prayers.”
Every church should be doing this when it comes to Democrats claiming to be Catholic while simultaneously advocating for babies to be aborted up until birth.

Biden Held Hostage to Anti-Life Extremists
It’s not that Biden necessarily wants to be viewed as pro-abortion to the extreme, it’s just that radicals in his own party have forced him to move in that direction in order to have a shot at the Democrat nomination.
Earlier this year, Biden caved on his decades-long support of the Hyde Amendment which prevents federal funding of abortion except in cases of rape, incest or when the mother’s life is in danger.
He actually affirmed his support but flip-flopped on the matter just days later.
“I’ve been struggling with the problems that Hyde now presents,” Biden said at a rally this past summer. “I can’t justify leaving millions of women without access to the care they need and the ability to … exercise their constitutionally protected right.”
The notion is an absurd one, since women would still, as the law dictates, be able to exercise that ‘right,’ but wouldn’t get taxpayer money for doing something over half the nation morally disagrees with.
.@JoeBiden just came out saying, after listening to women in the last 24 hrs, he WILL repeal the Hyde Amendment. I repeat, Joe Biden just came out against the Hyde Amendment.
Thanks, Joe. For listening to the American people. And thank you to the women who raised their voices. pic.twitter.com/O304t9cANV

Pressure From the Crazies
Biden is clearly not a man of his convictions, flailing in whatever direction the political winds happen to be blowing.
Unfortunately for the Democrat party, the winds are being dictated by a lot of hot air from the unhinged faction of the resistance.
The former vice president succumbed to people like Caps-Lock guru, Cher, who demanded he adjusts his position on the Hyde Amendment and supports a woman’s supposed right to have an abortion paid for by the federal government.
Joe Made Major Mistake‼️ Women Who Can Afford Abortion’s Should Pay,Those Women Who cant Pay should be offered FREE Birth Control,Plan B,Abortion Pill,& SAFE Abortion.
WOMEN ARE THE FUTURE
DONT FK WITH US

The ironic part here is that Father Morey will now be portrayed as the extremist by the media.
