REMARKS FROM NEW YORK STATE CONSERVATIVE PARTY CHAIRMAN GERARD KASSAR ON BIDEN ADMINISTRATION BANNING CATHOLIC PRIESTS AT WALTER REED
Brooklyn-NY…“We almost couldn’t believe what we were reading: How could the administration of an ostensibly Catholic President ban Catholic priests, through a ‘cease-and-desist’ letter, from providing pastoral care, during Holy Week no less, at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, where they’ve been serving patients for the past 20 years? Does President Biden really not understand the right of Americans to worship as they see fit? Has his administration really become that radicalized?
“The Conservative Party finds this Biden Administration action downright inexplicable. This has nothing to do with an expired contract and everything to do with the right of Walter Reed patients to seek religious comfort as they see fit, in this case through the good works of the Holy Name College Friary.
“We are hopeful that President Biden will feel the burn of embarrassment and immediately reverse course in this matter. This cannot stand.”
