Joe Biden is not a real Catholic. He can call himself a Catholic, but he should have been excommunicated for his pro-abortion record.
In 2008, Cardinal Justin Rigali said of Biden's record and abortion "during the Republican convention... for his archdiocesan newspaper comparing abortion to the [Nazi] Holocaust" according to liberal Betty Clermont. ("The Neo-Catholics," pages 282)
Pew Research Center reported Cardinal Rigali, "chairman of the U.S. Bishops Committee on Pro-Life Activities... 'Slam[ed] Biden over Abortion Comments'":
On the Sept. 7 , Meet the Press, host Tom Brokaw asked Biden what he would say if Obama asked him, 'When does life begin? Help me out here, Joe.' Biden replied, 'I’d say, ‘Look, I know when it begins for me.’ It’s a personal and private issue. For me, as a Roman Catholic, I’m prepared to accept the teachings in my church.” But, Biden added, “for me to impose that judgment on others is inappropriate in a pluralistic society.'”
"That prompted a response from some U.S. Catholic bishops, including a joint statement by Cardinal Justin F. Rigali, chairman of the U.S. Bishops Committee on Pro-Life Activities, and Bishop William E. Lori, chairman of the U.S. Bishops Committee on Doctrine. The Sept. 9 statement said that Biden’s 'claim that the beginning of human life is a ‘personal and private’ matter of religious faith, one which cannot be ‘imposed’ on others, does not reflect the truth of the matter.” Headlines portrayed the reaction in no uncertain terms. USA Today ran a Religion News Service story entitled 'Bishops Slam Biden over Abortion Comments.' On FoxNews.com the headline was 'Bishops Criticize Biden’s Abortion Comments.'” [https://www.pewforum.org/2008/11/20/how-the-news-media-covered-religion-in-the-general-election/]
