Transcript for US Catholic bishops going against Vatican
US Catholic bishops are going against the Vatican and moving forward with a plan that could review president Joseph Biden and other politicians over their stance. On abortion. The American bishops are taking steps that could allow some priests to deny the president communion because of his public stance on abortion rights. Wish clashes with the official teachings of the Catholic Church. The Pope and the Vatican have worn American bishops against this kind of declaration saying that the current Pope is focusing instead much more and issues of poverty. Refugees and equality. President Biden was asked about this yesterday and said its quote a private matter and I don't think that is going to happen.
