Liberal “Christian” groups are trying to get Archbishop Joseph Naumann, head of the U.S. Catholic bishops’ pro-life committee, fired for his denunciation of Joe Biden’s radical support for abortion.

Faith in Public Life and Faithful America — two far-left, so-called religious groups backed by atheist mega-donor George Soros — launched an online petition last week to unseat Naumann from his committee post. The petition had nearly 20,000 signatures as of Tuesday, although Faithful America has been known to pad petitions with fake signatures.

Both Soros-backed, pro-abortion and pro-LGBT groups behind the effort to cancel Naumann have worked for years to destroy the careers of faithful Christian leaders, winning condemnation even from mainstream media outlets. The organizations repeatedly have targeted top Catholic prelatesincluding Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco, as well as traditional humanitarian aid providers and evangelical pastors.

“As fellow Catholics, Christians, and other concerned people of faith, we urge conference leaders to remove Archbishop Joseph Naumann as chair of the pro-life committee,” the petition against Naumann reads.

“We encourage you to select a new leader who will refrain from attacking the president’s personal faith,” it adds.

Naumann slammed Biden in an interview in February, correcting the longtime pro-abortion, pro-LGBT Democrat’s claims of being a “devout Catholic.”

“The president should stop defining himself as a devout Catholic, and acknowledge that his view on abortion is contrary to Catholic moral teaching,” the archbishop said. “When he says he is a devout Catholic, we bishops have the responsibility to correct him. Although people have given this president power and authority, he cannot define what it is to be a Catholic and what Catholic moral teaching is.”

Naumann stressed that Biden should not receive the Eucharist.
“I believe the president has the responsibility not to present himself for Holy Communion,” he said, adding that Biden “should not put the priest in the situation where he has to decide whether or not to allow him to receive the Eucharist. He should know that after 78 years as a Catholic….”
