Yes, a new poll shows 74% of mass-attending Catholics believe Catholic public officials who disagree with the church on serious issues such as abortion should "avoid creating confusion and disunity by not presenting themselves for communion."
And here's something important, because maybe we're all not aware of that giant elephant in the room right over there.
The polling data comes just before the U.S. Bishops begin their June 16-18 Spring Assembly meeting, when they are slated to debate and vote on producing a teaching document about how to properly receive the Eucharist.
The Bishops' discussion will inevitably include the matter of prominent Catholic political figures such as President Joe Biden presenting themselves for Communion while maintaining support for evils like abortion.
Yup. This debate is still ongoing. And now there are actual poll numbers to support the anti-abortion side of this argument within the Catholic community. (As if just Catholicism in general wasn't enough.)
And sure, the poll only asked churchgoing Catholics for an answer on this issue, but let's be honest: if you're not a churchgoing Catholic you do not receive the Eucharist, so this question actually DOES NOT APPLY TO YOU.
Plain and simple.
So now we'll sit back and wait for the Bishops to make a decision as to whether openly-fake Catholics like Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi can receive Communion.
And this poll should definitely help that decision.
Oh, I'll leave you with this:
Yes, Mr. Biden, a very publicly private matter.
