Vatican Supreme Court Prefect Attacks Biden and Pelosi

By Barbara Sowell     Oct 3, 2008 in Politics
The former St. Louis Archbishop Raymond Burke, now prefect of the Vatican’s Supreme Court of the Apostolic Signature, told a Catholic newspaper Avvenire that the U.S. Democratic Party is becoming “a party of death.”
Burke is attacking the Democratic Party on bioethical issues – specifically abortion. He attacked Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi for misrepresenting Church teaching on abortion.
He said Biden and Pelosi, “while presenting themselves as good Catholics, have presented Church doctrine on abortion in a false and tendentious way.”
Burke said pro-life Democrats were “rare” and that it saddened him that the party that helped “our immigrant parents and grandparents” prosper in America had changed so much over the years
Pope Benedict XVI, wrote an undistributed letter in 2004 to American bishops restating the Church position that a priest must refuse to distribute communion to a Catholic politician who supported abortion rights. The Pope is encouraging Catholic bishops to speak out more on political issues.
