In an interview with the Italian newspaper, Corriere della Sera, Pope emeritus Benedict XVI commented on both his decision to vacate the vatican back in 2013, saying it had nothing to do with the “gay lobby” conspiracy theories, while also expressing his belief that President Joe Biden is an “observant Catholic” despite overseeing the most rabidly pro-choice party in US history.
The 93 year-old Benedict said of his decision to step down:
“It was a difficult decision. But I made it in full consciousness, and I think I did the right thing. Some of my friends who are a bit ‘fanatical’ are still angry, they didn’t want to accept my choice. I think of the conspiracy theories that followed it: some said it was because of the Vatileaks scandal, some said it was because of a conspiracy of the gay lobby, some said it was because of the case of the conservative Lefebvrian theologian Richard Williamson.”
“They do not want to believe in a choice made consciously. But my conscience is fine.”
Commenting on Biden’s presidency, who is the second Roman Catholic President since JFK to take office, Benedict explains:
“It’s true, he’s Catholic and observant. And personally he is against abortion. But as president, he tends to present himself in continuity with the line of the Democratic Party … And on gender politics we have not yet understood what his position is.”
Despite the blood of dead babies dripping from his rickety old hands, the top Roman Catholic leadership in the country have continued to affirm that Joe Biden remains in good standing with the Catholic Church.
The former Archbishop and now Cardinal of Washington, Wilton D. Gregory, confirmed that he looks forward to working with Biden.
“I want to begin a relationship with him that allows us to have a serious conversation, knowing full well that there are issues that he and I will be diametrically opposed to, but hopefully also being able to capitalize on issues that we can advance together. I don’t want to go to the table with a gun on the table first.” and shares that he and his priests will continue to give communion to him, the same they have for the last 8 years, explaining “I’m not going to veer from that.”
What a bunch of cowards.
