An Arizona priest has vowed to never give President Joe Biden communion until he publicly repents for his sins.
Rev. William Kosco of St. Henry Catholic Church in Buckeye, AZ delivered a sermon on Feb. 7 condemning Biden’s views on abortion and telling parishioners “his ideas are not welcome here.”
“You are welcome here even if you’re pro-abortion but your ideas are not welcome here, and they will be given no quarter,” Rev. Kosco said.
“The same with Joe Biden. He’s a Catholic. He’s a member of the family. If for some reason he would be in Buckeye on a Sunday, Joe Biden is welcome to come to mass here. His ideas are not welcome here.”
Kosco went on to say that he would not give Biden communion until he publicly repents.
“And if you ask me a follow-up question: Would you give him communion? No. Over my dead body. Not until he repents. He’s a public figure. He needs to publicly repent, and we need to pray for his conversion.”
Biden is a the second Catholic president in U.S. history. He often cites Saint Augustine and hymns in his speeches and carries a rosary that belonged to his son Beau.
Many Catholic priests have said that Biden cannot be offered communion due to his support of same-sex marriage and abortion.
“We just recently elected a Catholic President, and he is Catholic, he is baptized, he is a member of the family. We just elected a Catholic President who is diametrically opposed to all of the basic, moral principles that are proclaimed by the Roman Catholic Church. Not only abortion, and the sanctity of human life, but the sanctity of marriage and this gender silliness,” Kosco said.
“How in the world did that happen?” Kosco questioned. “A Catholic! I’ll tell you if he wasn’t Catholic I probably wouldn’t be so upset. He’s a member of my family.”

Texas has raised over $55 million from private donations to secure border, build a wall
As of September 12, the state of Texas has raised a little over $55 million in private donations, to secure the southern border and build a wall. “While securing the border is the federal government’s responsibility, Texas will not sit idly by as this crisis grows. Texas is responding with the most robust and comprehensive border plan the nation has ever seen,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said in a statement.
“The State of Texas is working collaboratively with communities impacted by the border crisis to arrest and detain individuals coming into Texas illegally,” Abbott’s statement reads. “Our efforts will only be effective if we work together to secure the border, make criminal arrests, protect landowners, rid our communities of dangerous drugs, and provide Texans with the support they need and deserve.”
In addition to finding money for a border wall, Abbott has signed legislation which designated Mexican drug cartels as domestic terrorists, and has called on President Joe Biden to do the same.
“Fentanyl is a clandestine killer, and Texans are falling victim to the Mexican cartels that are producing it,” said Governor Abbott in a statement. “Cartels are terrorists, and it’s time we treated them that way. In fact, more Americans died from fentanyl poisoning in the past year than all terrorist attacks across the globe in the past 100 years. In order to save our country, particularly our next generation, we must do more to get fentanyl off our streets.”
“As of now, Biden has not responded to Abbott’s request to designate Mexican cartels as terrorist organizations” reports Just The News.
