In what has become a viral video, a hard-line Catholic bishop accused President Biden, who claims to be a “practicing Catholic,” of mocking the Catholic faith.

The Catholic bishop of Springfield, Illinois, Thomas John Paprocki, published a video titled, “Biden Mocks Our Catholic Faith,” in which he discussed heresy, apostasy, and schismatic behavior.

Paprocki noted that Biden promised in his State of the Union Address in March that he would do what he could to restore Roe v. Wade as the law of the land.

Paprocki continued by noting a later incident in which he said Biden acted in a sacrilegious manner. Paprocki stated:

Last month on April 23, Biden compounded his support for the sin of abortion by making the sign of the cross during an abortion rally in Tampa, Florida. According to news reports describing the incident, Biden made the sign of the cross while a Biden supporter onstage criticized Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for signing a bill into law reducing the time from which an abortion in the state would be legal from 15 to six weeks of gestation. With Biden standing next to Florida Democratic Party chairwoman Nikki Fried, she said, “And then we come back here to the state of Florida where 15 weeks wasn’t good enough, so we had to go to six weeks,” referring to the new limit until which abortion is allowed under state law. As soon as Fried said, “wasn’t good enough,” Biden began to cross himself with the sign of the cross.

Paprocki quoted Bishop José Ignacio Munilla of the Orihuela-Alicante Diocese in Spain, saying that making the sign of the cross in support of abortion constitutes a “sacrilegious” gesture and “the desecration of the sign of the cross,” that to use the sign of the cross as Biden did was to “invoke the cross in a sacrilegious manner.”


“I fully support Bishop Munilla and agree with what he said,” Paprocki stated. “To misuse this sacred gesture is to make a mockery of our Catholic faith. The Epistle of St. Paul to the Galatians says, ‘Make no mistake. God is not mocked.’”

 In an interview conducted after the release of his video, Paprocki explained:

Heresy is the denial, or the obstinate doubt about some truth that is to be believed with divine or Catholic faith. … If you reject something like the Ten Commandments, that’s revealed by God. That’s divinely revealed; God gave Moses the Ten Commandments to give to the people of Israel and to all of us. … If a person says, “I don’t think adultery’s that big a deal, I reject the teaching,” basically saying, “I reject the Sixth Commandment and therefore I don’t think adultery’s the problem,” now you’re rejecting something that’s divinely revealed. In that case, you’re entering the area of something that would be considered heretical.

Part of the big problem with what President Biden has been saying is, in effect, he’s rejecting at least part of the Fifth Commandment, which says, “Thou shall not kill.” And he seems to be saying he has no problem with killing babies in the womb.
