Jerry Pokorsky, a Roman Catholic priest in Virginia said President Joe Biden is the "most aggressively anti-Catholic President in history," in an essay published on Friday.

"President Biden's supporters repeatedly claim that he is a devout Catholic," Pokorsky said. "In 2005, Biden himself protested those who questioned his Catholicism: 'The next Republican that tells me I'm not religious I'm going to shove my rosary beads down their throat.'"

"But the words of Jesus are foreboding: 'Not every one who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.' [Mt. 7:21]"

"Biden's habitual and unapologetic sinful acts are on full display."

"For most of his political life — from his consistent pro-abortion record to his officiating at a gay wedding in 2016 — despite his Catholic affiliation and public pious practices, Joe Biden has magnified and institutionalized countless major violations of the Ten Commandments," Pokorsky said.

"The hypocrisy rivals that of the chief priests and Pharisees and is worthy of the same condemnation. Indeed, Biden is the most aggressively anti-Catholic President in history."

Pokorsky noted other areas of apparent hypocrisy on Biden's part, including his commitment to "codifying" Roe v. Wade and his support of the pro-LGBTQ "Equality Act."

The priest criticized those church leaders who "declared Biden worthy of Catholic-in-good-standing status" but who refuse to "initiate a single disciplinary measure to protect the Catholic faith from scandal."

"As perhaps the most powerful man in the world, Biden's insistent claim that he is a devout Catholic forces an unavoidable choice," Pokorsky said.

"We either: stand with the Church and her sacraments and reject Biden's iconic culture-of-death policies, or we join those who celebrate Biden's flouting of Church teaching. In so doing, we will reveal whether we intend to magnify the Lord or magnify Biden's immorality."
