After the landmark overturning of Roe v. Wade, heretic president Joe Biden signed an executive order last Friday promoting child sacrifice with the website ReproductiveRights.gov. The Register reported a comment from the Holy Father yesterday:
During an interview with Univisión and Televisa broadcast July 12, Pope Francis spoke about abortion and Biden’s position, after being asked about whether to admit politicians who promote legal abortion to Holy Communion.
The Holy Father affirmed that there is scientific data that shows that ‘a month after conception, the DNA of the fetus is already there, and the organs are aligned. There is human life.’
‘Is it just to eliminate a human life?’ he then asked.
As for the defense of abortion by the U.S. president, Pope Francis stated that he leaves it to Biden’s ‘conscience.’
‘Let [Biden] talk to his pastor about that incoherence,’ the Pope said.
Biden’s pastor, McCarrick protégé Wilton Gregory has already paid lip service to Catholic doctrine and refused to excommunicate the heretic President and defend the unborn.
Recall that two weeks ago, feticide-supporter Nancy Pelosi received Holy Communion conspicuously on the feast of Sts. Peter and Paul in Rome, while the Roman Pontiff did not protest but issued more lip service to Catholic doctrine, vague comments and no action.
Here again we see the same pattern from the Pope.
Remember when Joe Biden told the world that the Pope said he was a good Catholic and should still receive Holy Communion? That was October, 2021:
Although @HolySeePress has been made aware of the gravity of this statement from President Biden proceeding without Vatican clarification or confirmation, they declined to answer or respond at all, saying they don’t comment on private papal conversations https://t.co/Ox5WXPQ1R2

The Holy See press office just couldn’t bring themselves to comment about a matter touching upon the murder of thousands of children and the destruction of families. We recall in this instance the undermining of Catholic dogma in the Pope’s numerous Scalfari interviews, with non-answers from the Press Office.
The Hireling Runs from the Wolves?
At this point, it is all but crystal clear that the Holy Father is punting on the matter of child sacrifice. He knows how to say the right words, but he cannot bring himself to act like a shepherd and defend the sheep from the wolves.
But what can we say except this with tears: this pope is undermining the pro-life movement and abandoning the poorest of the poor, the unborn children. Let him repent, lest he face the consuming fire of God’s judgment.
We hope that if a full transcript of the above interview is released, this analysis can be happily proven wrong. All pious Catholics must lament what we are forced to say about the Holy Father, but what else can we say at this point?
Thank God, more bishops are not acting like “vicars of the Roman Pontiff” (Lumen Gentium, 27), and Archbishop Cordileone has lead the way.
May more bishops follow the example of the Good Shepherd, and lay down their lives for the sheep. May they not be hirelings, who run when the wolves come, because they have no care for the sheep.
Meanwhile we, the sheep, will not rest until child sacrifice is abolished everywhere and Christ reigns in every soul and society. We will fight the wolves ourselves if we have to. DEUS VULT.
