Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, released a statement today asking Joe Biden and Kamala Harris if they agree with Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer that President Trump should be ousted from office.
“Schumer has urged Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th amendment to remove the president from office, and failing that, the senator from New York says Congress should try impeaching the president – again,” Father Pavone said. “I want to know exactly where Biden and Harris stand on that outrageous and anti-American proposal.
“What I’d like to hear from the America’s worst senator - Schumer,” Father Pavone continued, “is how he justifies his inflammatory rhetoric, which only pours fuel on the flames after yesterday’s events at the U.S. Capitol. How does his ranting calm the anger of tens of millions across the country, or serve the ‘unity’ and ‘healing’ of the country the Democrats pretend to want?”
Father Pavone noted that the announcement from Facebook that it would lock President Trump out of his accounts for two weeks is another incendiary tactic, further alienating and angering people who are already angry.
“While I do not ever condone breaking into buildings, disrupting government proceedings, or breaking windows in the Capitol,” he said, “it’s puzzling that social media would take this action. The only thing this accomplishes is to further alienate those who are already angry, and remove from them a significant peaceful tool for airing their grievances and supporting their President.
“We should be increasing peaceful activity, not stifling it.”
