A pro-life group in Cincinnati is speaking out against a Catholic college that is set to host President Joe Biden for a town hall Wednesday night.
Mount St. Joseph University is scheduled to host the 46th president, much to the chagrin of Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati, a pro-life group that is asking local supporters of their cause to call Archbishop Dennis Schnurr in protest.
“Tell them this is unacceptable for a Catholic university,” the group reportedly said in an email to supporters. “They should be ashamed to host a man responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent unborn lives.”
Evidently, Schnurr is feeling the heat. Through the archdiocese, he released a statement Tuesday afternoon:
Archbishop Dennis M. Schnurr has not been contacted by any involved party about the upcoming visit of President Joseph R. Biden to Cincinnati to participate in a CNN town hall meeting at Mount St. Joseph University. Archbishop Schnurr has therefore not been asked for, nor would he have granted, his approval for any such event to occur on Catholic premises. Mount St. Joseph University operates under the sponsorship of the Sisters of Charity and not under the direct oversight of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.
Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati did not respond to The Ohio Star’s comment request.
Biden is the second Catholic president in United States history, but his support for left-wing abortion groups has put him at odds with the church.
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops recently voted in favor of writing “a formal statement on the meaning of the Eucharist in the life of the Church” in response to Biden taking communion, with which some Catholics disagree.
