After President Biden met with Pope Francis on October 29th, NBC News featured commentary from Senior Fellow Ashley McGuire. She argues that Biden is “a very confusing figure to American Catholics because he very much campaigned on his faith and Catholicism and at the same time is sort of openly flouting church teaching.”

“Biden is openly embracing policy positions that directly contradict the church’s most fundamental teachings,” McGuire states. “The church doesn’t have the choice, really, of staying silent.”
