The Fox & Friends trio saw this one differently.
Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt, and Brian Kilmeade on Tuesday morning were discussing a Catholic priest's refusal to administer Holy Communion to former Vice President Joe Biden, a lifelong Catholic, during a Mass in South Carolina over the weekend because of the Democratic presidential's stance on abortion. "Any public figure who advocates for abortion places himself or herself outside of Church teaching," Rev. Robert E. Morey said when explaining his decision.
Kilmeade, who is also Catholic, was not pleased with Morey, arguing that it's not realistic to expect every Catholic to be in line with every single doctrine. "I think that's very judgmental," Kilmeade said.
Earhardt and Doocy were more understanding of the priest's position, and Earhardt — who was not outright dismissive of Kilmeade's point of view, either — suggested Biden could look for another denomination that's more accepting of his personal views.
Fox & Friends debates the Eucharist:
Brian: "I just find that extremely negative, if everybody in line to get communion has to live up to all the principles of Catholicism. As a Catholic, there'd be 2 or 3 people in line"
Ainsley: "The Catholic Church is strict about this." pic.twitter.com/vH1Ylu0CLB
