The “integrity” of the Catholic Church is at risk after several prominent bishops congratulated Joe Biden on the 2020 presidential election, the head of the political action group CatholicVote wrote.

Brian Burch wrote on the group’s website that “Just last week the U.S. bishops created a ‘task force’ to deal with a possible Biden presidency. The [United States Conference of Catholic Bishops] delivered a message congratulating Joe Biden, only to admit a week later that his prospective presidency ‘presents certain opportunities but also certain challenges.’”

USCCB President Archbishop José Horacio Gómez said in a statement shortly after Election Day: “we recognize that Joseph R. Biden, Jr., has received enough votes to be elected the 46th President of the United States. We congratulate Mr. Biden and acknowledge that he joins the late President John F. Kennedy as the second United States president to profess the Catholic faith.”

He later added that Biden’s stance on abortion and other issues present “additional problems,” for politicians who “profess the Catholic faith.”

Burch adds that Gómez, “cited the threats ahead, including the ‘preeminent priority of eliminating abortion’ but also the ‘unequal treatment of Catholic schools,’ the Equality Act, the restoration of the HHS mandate, and more…”

Burch says that “all of these threats will be aggressively pursued by a ‘President’ Biden.

“We are on the cusp of having a Catholic president … who supports a war on biology and the family, abortion on demand, closing Catholic schools, and more. This will be a catastrophic scandal that anyone with eyes warned was coming!”

He goes on to criticize Catholics who “are already angry at the idea of a ‘task force,’ calling instead for ‘common ground,’” saying that “unity in lies is disgraceful, and wrong.”
