Catholics for Clarity started this petition to Archbishop José Gomez, President USCCB and

Your Excellencies,
 
We are distressed by your statement of November 7 recognizing Joseph Biden as the president-elect of the United States and as a man who professes the Catholic faith.


               "…We recognize that Joseph R. Biden, Jr., has received enough votes to be elected the 46th President of the United States. We congratulate Mr. Biden and acknowledge that he joins the late President John F. Kennedy as the second United States president to profess the Catholic faith."
 
Since, as of this writing, the counting of ballots has not finished and the race is still contested in many states, it is simply not accurate to say that Joseph Biden has received enough votes to call the race. What we have witnessed today—regardless of the ultimate outcome and the actual results—is an attempted coup d'état, in which the media have tried to force a decision by announcing a winner before the results are in.
 
Far more shocking and disconcerting, however, is that you should speak of Joseph Biden as a man who professes the Catholic faith. He is an outspoken proponent of abortion and of the LGBTQ agenda. To recognize him as a Catholic president is to create confusion and cause scandal.
 
It is to abandon every baby in danger of abortion and every mother courageously persevering in her decision to bring her child to birth under difficult circumstances where abortion is a temptation.
 
It is to abandon every mother who has made sacrifices by bringing her child to birth.
 
It is to abandon every father trying to save his child from abortion or bereft of a child because of abortion.
 
It is to abandon every person who works and prays, in politics, in medical facilities, in crisis pregnancy centers, in convents, on sidewalks outside of abortion clinics, and many other battle grounds, often at great personal sacrifice and risk, to try to save the lives of unborn babies.
 
It is to scandalize and abandon every person struggling to live chastely in spite of homosexual appetites.
 
It is to abandon all parents fighting to protect their children from assaults on their innocence and chastity.
 
It is to abandon every elected official who is genuinely Catholic, or Christian, or simply acknowledges the natural law and who strives to be guided in his or her actions and decisions by the truth.
 
It is to abandon the weak, the uniformed, and everyone who looks to the bishops of the Catholic Church for true teaching and guidance.
 
Your Excellencies, in this difficult times, we need clarity. We, your flock, beg you to speak the truth as you would before Christ and not to pander to the powerful, who will most assuredly meet each of your concessions with demands for further ones.  There can be no peace in this country predicated on compromise with those who wage war on God, humanity, and the natural law.
 
Respectfully yours in Christ Jesus Our Lord,
