Joe Biden's Catholic Bishop Won't Deny Communion Over Pro-Abortion Views:
The Catholic bishop that oversees the diocese where Joe Biden worships says he will not deny the incoming vice president communion over his pro-abortion views. Bishop W. Francis Malooly's decision stands in contrast to one made by Bishop Joseph F. Martino, of Biden's hometown Scranton, Pennsylvania.
Malooly, bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Wilmington, is participating in the meeting the nation's bishops are holding this week in Baltimore.
He told the Associated Press that he won't ask Biden to withdraw from receiving communion even though several of his fellow bishops have done so. He said he would rather change Biden's opinion on abortion.
'I won't politicize the Eucharist,' Malooly said. 'I don't want to alienate people. I want to change their hearts and minds.'
