Catholic Priest Lets Biden Know When He Can Go To Confession After Recent Abortion Comments

In the Roman Catholic Church, it is considered a mortal sin to support abortion in any manner. If you are in a state of mortal sin, you need the Sacrament of Confession for your sins to be forgiven before you present yourself to receive communion again. President Joe Biden claims to be a “devout” Catholic, but that has not stopped him from being pro-choice, nor from openly defying Church teaching on the matter.

Recently, he slammed Florida’s new pro-life bill as “dangerous” because it limits abortion to 15-weeks. In response, a Virginia Catholic priest let the commander-in-chief know when he can attend confession at his parish.

On Friday, The Daily Wire reported that “lawmakers in Florida voted to prohibit most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy” on Thursday night.

According to Politico, “It provides no exceptions for victims of rape, incest or human trafficking. Existing Florida law restricts abortions after 24 weeks.”

Biden condemned the bill via Twitter, stating, “the Republican-controlled Florida Legislature passed a dangerous bill that will severely restrict women’s access to reproductive health care.”

“My Administration will not stand for the continued erosion of women’s constitutional rights,” he added.

This marked the second time in one week that Biden defended the right to kill a baby in the womb.

On Ash Wednesday, the president said he did not want to pass “judgement” on other people, and that he didn’t want to get into a “theological debate” over abortion.

That interaction can be seen here:

But, as The Daily Wire noted after that comment, there is not much of “theological debate” to be had on abortion within the Catholic Church.

Obtaining, providing, or supporting an abortion — thereby ending an innocent life — has always been a mortal sin. As a public figure openly supporting abortion, Biden is not just putting his own soul at risk, but is also committing a sin of scandal by leading other Catholics astray on this topic.

Catholics believe each human being from the moment of conception until natural death has inherent dignity and is the made in the image of God, and therefore has the right to life. To go against this is to go against the Church.

Catholic Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone — who serves the Diocese of San Francisco — wrote last summer that “you cannot be a good Catholic and support expanding a government-approved right to kill innocent human beings.”

Cordileone added, “everyone who advocates for abortion, in public or private life, who funds it or who presents it as a legitimate choice, participates in a great moral evil.”

Perhaps understanding Biden was participating in a “great moral evil” and therefore sinning with his comments, Father Dan Beeman of Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Newport News, Virginia, kindly let him know that he holds confessions “at noon on Sunday, 5pm on Wednesday, and 3 on Saturday, Mr. President.”

On Saturday, Getty Images captured photos of Biden walking out of his hometown parish St. Joseph on the Brandywine in Greenville, Delaware, after the five o’clock Mass.

All are welcome in Mass regardless of if they are in a state of mortal sin, but those Catholics are asked to refrain from receiving Communion out of respect and love for the Body and Blood of Christ, as the Church believes is present in the Eucharist.

It is unclear if Biden made it to confession during the 4:00 pm slot that the church allots for the sacrament, but perhaps he can make a trip south to Newport News this week instead and visit Father Beeman.

Montana: Aerial Hunting of Wolves Runs Afoul of Federal Law

National Rifle Association

Despite a recent interpretation of Montana state law that aerial hunting of wolves is not prohibited, doing so runs afoul of federal law.

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks argued in state District Court recently that state law does not prohibit aerial hunting of wolves. FWP’s arguments came as legal justification for the agency removing language from the state’s wolf regulations that had stated hunting wolves from aircraft was barred. The agency says that inclusion of that language in the regulations for a decade was an error.

In response to media reporting on the case, a number of readers pointed to federal law addressing aerial hunting. The Airborne Hunting Act of 1972 “prohibits shooting or attempting to shoot or harassing any bird, fish or other animal from aircraft except for certain specified reasons, including protection of wildlife, livestock and human life as authorized by a federal or state-issued license or permit.”

“It is accurate to say that, under the federal Airborne Hunting Act, hunting wolves or other animals from the air is prohibited in most circumstances,” Jessica Sutt, a spokesperson for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, said in an email. “The law allows for permitted federal or state agents to shoot from aircraft for defined management purposes. The average person with a hunting license can’t shoot from an aircraft under AHA.”

In response to a question about the federal law, FWP spokesperson Greg Lemon wrote in an email, “The federal law that prohibits aerial hunting has an exception for state-permitted activities. We believe FWP (is) exempted from that law.”

In an effort to clarify the state’s position, the Montana State News Bureau asked the agency whether “permitted activities” meant licensed hunters could use aircraft. FWP spent more than a week in part doing legal analysis on the question, Lemon said, and replied on Wednesday: “Aerial recreational hunting of wolves is currently prohibited by federal law.”

Outside of state or federal agents shooting from the air, the federal law does come with exceptions that have led states to allow the public to shoot from the air under certain circumstances. Language in Montana and other state programs describes the activities as management for livestock or wildlife depredation.

The Montana Department of Livestock offers aerial hunting permits specifically for coyotes and foxes. Licensed pilots may purchase a permit via an application that includes a request from a livestock producer. The application specifies the permit does not allow shooting coyotes or foxes for recreational purposes.

Alaska developed “intensive management” programs for certain areas where it has determined moose or caribou populations are below desired levels. The public may apply for permits that allow a pilot and gunner to shoot wolves, or bears in some cases, from the air in an effort to bolster ungulate numbers. In several places, however, Alaska states that aerial hunting is prohibited outside of the intensive management areas and without the permit.

“These permits allow for aerial shooting by a backseat gunner,” one management plan states, as well as spotting wolves from the air, landing and immediately hunting.

Idaho uses language stating that recent efforts to expand methods of take for wolves do not include aerial hunting, citing the federal law.

“These expanded methods do not currently include aerial shooting of wolves, which is subject to the Federal Airborne Hunting Act and not allowed in Idaho,” according to Idaho Fish and Game. “If Idaho should allow aerial hunting of wolves, it would be specific to designated control actions and by permit from the Idaho Department of Agriculture, which is authorized through the Federal Airborne Hunting Act.”

The issue with Montana’s wolf hunting laws and regulations arose as FWP and the Montana Fish and Wildlife Commission are facing a lawsuit from two wildlife advocacy groups. The groups say they were denied the right to participate when FWP removed language that had previously appeared in wolf hunting and trapping regulations stating that aerial hunting was prohibited by a rule made by the commission. The groups argue in part that regulation changes should have gone through the open commission process rather than be done unilaterally by FWP.

According to testimony from a former FWP attorney, an agency review found the commission had not passed such a rule and likely lacked the authority to do so. The review concluded that the state Legislature, rather than the commission, would need to make a change in order to prohibit aerial hunting of wolves under state law, according to testimony.

The Montana Legislature has enacted state bans on aerial hunting for “big game” animals, such as elk and mountain lions, as well as “furbearers” like as bobcats and beavers. But wolves are legally defined by the state as a “species in need of management,” and the Legislature has not enacted a similar prohibition for wolves, state wildlife officials said in testimony and court documents.

The current wolf regulations do not mention the federal prohibition on aerial hunting. FWP does not have authority to enforce federal law but in some cases has passed rules and regulations through the commission shaped by federal law, such as regulations for hunting migratory birds, or a game warden having authority to write a ticket for driving off road on federal land.

Joe Biden revealed this Republican traitor will help him pass amnesty for illegal aliens – Patriot Pulse

Joe Biden used his State of the Union Address to call for citizenship and voting rights for illegal aliens.

Biden has a plan to make it a reality.

And that’s because Joe Biden revealed this Republican traitor will help him pass amnesty for illegal aliens.

Biden dedicated a portion of his speech to demanding amnesty for tens of millions of illegal aliens.

At a time when millions of Americans are still out of work, Biden called for an endless supply of cheap foreign labor for major corporations.

“Provide a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers, those on temporary status, farmworkers, and essential workers,” Biden said. “Revise our laws so businesses have the workers they need and families don’t wait decades to reunite.”

Biden then falsely claimed that driving down the wages of American citizens by importing tens of millions of unskilled, cheap, illegal alien laborers. was “the right thing to do.”

“It’s not only the right thing to do — it’s the economically smart thing to do,” Biden stated.

Biden then stated that the Chamber of Commerce – the big-business lobby – and pro-open borders evangelicals like Russell Moore support amnesty for illegal aliens.

“That’s why immigration reform is supported by everyone from labor unions to religious leaders to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Let’s get it done once and for all,” Biden added.

For years, big business and Democrats struck a bargain on immigration.

Democrats would support amnesty to provide corporations the cheap foreign labor they required to drive down wages and boost profits.

In return, the Chamber of Commerce and other big businesses would support amnesty for illegal aliens so Democrats could create a massive pool of potential new voters.

That agreement between the business wing of the GOP and Democrats officially blew up in 2016 when Donald Trump won the Presidency.

Joe Biden spent decades in Washington where that status quo existed.

Biden was in the Senate for the 1986 amnesty bill, as well as the failed efforts in 2005, 2007, and 2013 to grant amnesty and voting rights to tens of millions of illegal aliens.

Had any of those efforts succeeded, the Republican Party may never have won another election again.

And Biden used his State of the Union Address to try and resurrect that zombie bipartisan consensus for open borders and massive levels of illegal immigration.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just sent one message to Joe Biden that terrifies Democrats

patriotpulse.net

Joe Biden’s State of the Union Address was a disaster.

Even his own Party is letting him know that.

And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just sent one message to Joe Biden that terrifies Democrats.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez panned Biden’s big speech on MSNBC following its conclusion.

Ocasio-Cortez fumed that Biden did not devote enough time to browbeating Congress into passing her Marxist Green New Deal.

“It was a lost opportunity because there is … bipartisan support for a long-term shift away from fossil fuels,” Ocasio-Cortez stated. “We need to hear more about our transition to clean energy beyond weatherizing our windows.”

Opposition from Democrat Senators Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema killed Joe Biden’s almost $5 trillion socialist spending bill.

That legislation initially contained the Green New Deal provisions that Ocasio-Cortez championed.

Biden simply bowed to the political reality of the moment in cutting them from his speech.

But Ocasio-Cortez was not the only socialist in Congress who was livid over the contents of Biden’s speech.

Missouri Congresswoman Cori Bush – who was a Black Lives Matter activist before winning election to Congress in 2020 – raged at Biden for calling on Congress to fund the police.

“With all due respect,” Bush wrote, adding that “you didn’t mention saving Black lives once in this speech. All our country has done is given more funding to police. The result? 2021 set a record for fatal police shootings. Defund the police. Invest in our communities.”

Bush is one of the loudest voices in Congress defining Democrats as the Party of defunding the police.

Since that policy is politically toxic with voters, Biden tried to shift perception of Democrats in the minds of voters with his speech.

“We should all agree, the answer is not to defund the police. The answer is to fund the police with the resources and training they need to protect our communities,” Biden stated. “I ask Democrats and Republicans alike, pass my budget and keep our neighborhoods safe.”

The point of a State of the Union Address is for the President to lay out an agenda that unites his Party and wins over Independent voters.

Joe Biden failed on every count.

The voices who speak for the Party base fumed on TV and on social media that Biden ignored their priorities or did not go hard-Left enough in his speech.

Over 3,000 US Veterans have Volunteered to Fight in Ukraine so far; Ukraine has over 16,000 Foreign Volunteers (International Legion)

Ukraine may get a lot of younger qualified US military who quit to avoid vaccination, if it’s not required by them. Many members of the US military retire at a young age and in peak form anyway. The British have been encouraging volunteerism, since it allows support without NATO becoming involved.

WASHINGTON — 
When Matthew Parker, an American veteran with 22 years of service in the U.S. Army, heard that Russian forces had invaded Ukraine, he thought about a Ukrainian American soldier who had served alongside him with U.S. forces in Iraq and decided he wanted to help the Ukrainians defend their homeland.

“I had a soldier in Iraq with me who was from Ukraine,” he told VOA of his decision to join what he sees…
