The ‘Catholic’ former vice president embraces beliefs antithetical to authentic Catholicism.
WASHINGTON, D.C., January 18, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — On the eve of Joe Biden’s inauguration on Wednesday, Washington Archbishop Wilton Cardinal Gregory will join the former vice president and Kamala Harris to honor those who have died of COVID-19.
Cardinal Gregory is slated to deliver the invocation at the event.
“The memorial will feature the lighting … at the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool, and hundreds of towns, cities, tribes, landmarks, and communities all across the country have committed to joining the tribute in a national moment of unity,” according to a press release from the Presidential Inauguration Committee.
This will be the first time the newly-minted cardinal and the soon-to-be occupant of the White House will be together for a public event.
While this will be a secular service, Cardinal Gregory’s presence cements the perception of the Church’s approval of Biden despite his long history and continued support for abortion, same-sex marriage, and trangender rights — all at the expense of religious freedom and conscience protections.
