Rome’s JPII Institute defends Biden on abortion

The John Paul II Pontifical Theological Institute for Marriage and Family Sciences generated a flurry of controversy in the Italian Catholic blogosphere this week, after its Facebook page defended Joe Biden’s support of legal abortion. The article emphasized what it calls Joe Biden‘s “Social Gospel” and presented a series of declarations by political scientists and theologians to support the theory that Biden’s election is complementary to Pope Francis’ election because both of them give a sort of new breath to Catholic social teaching.
