Architect of the Capitol via Wikimedia Commons

Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) are both planning to skip President Trump’s departure ceremony tomorrow.

Instead, both GOP leaders will attend a pre-inaugural Catholic Church service with President-elect Joe Biden.

Per The Hill:

The reports come as President Trump himself is set to be the first president in 150 years not to attend his successor’s inauguration. Vice President Pence is scheduled to be present at the ceremony, while the president himself will attend a sendoff ceremony at Joint Base Andrews.

The bipartisan leaders’ attendance also comes as Biden has repeatedly signaled his commitment to national unity ahead of the inauguration.

McCarthy was one of more than 100 House Republicans who objected to Biden’s Electoral College victory following a deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol.

Both chambers of Congress had broken off separately to debate an objection to Arizona’s election results when the mob of Trump supporters breached the Capitol.

Sorry Abortion is not permitted as a Catholic, of course you have Hippocrates like Pelousy and Biden making their own rules.

I call myself a conservative, and do wish that all democrats would abort, or live a gay marriage. After about 25 or 30 years, and no more illegal immigrants allowed, we can finally win elections again. No civil war will be necessary.

The Catholic Church has lost millions of followers, myself included
and the reason is because it has allowed greed and sin to replace church doctrine
Joe Biden was sleeping with Jill, while she was still married to another man, that is called ADULATORY
Joe Biden has supported abortion, that is known as MURDER
How many wealthy Catholics have been able to have their marriages annulled,
even after decades , and many children
Ted Kennedy, John Kerry, Jill Biden etc etc

I parted ways with the Catholic Church as well. I got tired of looking at CINOs (Catholics In Name Only). People that call themselves Catholics yet never accepted church doctrine. The church doctrine only applies to other people. Example: Abortion and the democrat party.

RELIGION IS THE NUMBER ONE REASON WHY THIS WRLD HAS SO MUCH STRIFE AND PROBLEMS- EVERY ONE THINKS THEIR RELIGION IS RIGHT AND ALL THE OTHERS ARE WRONG AND THEN THE WAR START OVER “SMOKE AND MIRRORS” AND THEN PEOPLE START TO DIE ON BOTH SIDES OF THE RELIGIOUS QUIRKY ISSUES . POLITIC AND RELIGION IS LIKE NITRO AND GLYCERIN- IT BECOMES UNSABLE AND AN EXPLOSIVE IS FORMED AND THEN USED AS A KILLER OF THE OTHER RELIGIOUS SIDE. RELIGION HAS CAUSED MORE BEATH AND DESTRUCTION OF THE WORLD THAN ANY PLAGUE OR PANDEMIC IF HAS. BUT WE AS RATIONAL HUMANS KEEP THE SAME OLD STUPIDITY WHICH IS USING RELIGION TO OK KILLING YOUR NEIGHBORS BECAUSE OF THEIR STUPID RELIGIONS – IT IS WAY TO GET RID OF YOUR FOE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE COUNTRY AND THAT MEANS MORE ROOM FOR THE RELIGIOUS AGGRESSOR AND MORE FOOD AND LAND TO TAKE OVER. RELIGION IS REALLY THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL AND WHAY IS WRONG WITH THE WORLD AT WAR ! REALLY STUPID TO KEEP DOING THE SAME THINGS OVER AND OVER AND EXPECTING A DIFFERENT RESULT- THAT THE DEFINITION OF INSANITY!!

So your answer is death to all that are religious??? Your an idiot! Religious persons are the most charitable of all persons. Giving to the poor and needy all over the world. Just investigate charities and see for yourself. Obviously you do about as much investigating as bob mueller and his anti Trump crew! Anyway I got news for you, it’s the first amendment to our great constitution, which I’m sure you are against, Freedom of Religion! I along with Millions of other MAGA”S will fight to the death to protect our constitution so you’ve been warned!!!!

The problems facing the US now are not directly related to religion, although there is discrimination with Christianity and Jews in this country more now than ever before, but mainly because of radical agendas taking away our freedom and liberties that are guaranteed by our Constitution. Radical leftists want to rewrite American history and destroy our ideals and traditions in the name of a “New World Order” which begets communism.

No one gives up their faith when they refuse to support an antipope and heretic teachers. Fifty percent of the Novus Ordo Priests are not celibate. The Novus Ordo is Luther’s mass. Go to the Traditional Latin Mass SSPV or SSPX.

God see’s all. Man is sinful at heart only God is righteous. Sorry I left CC 59 yrs ago upon seeing a priest molest alter boy. What did church do when I reported what I saw. DON’T COME BACK THEY TOLD ME, I was 13.
That was the best advice
I ever got, because I truly found God without being told what to think and believe. So today I follow Jesus in the Bible not some catechism. It really hurts to see children abused by men who are not allowed to live a normal life as a man but try to live as a Catholic priest. That is the church’ fault! Yes it hurts deeply when you have been programed to think a Priest is not human with desires but upheld like God himself! In the end we will all stand before God for judgement let us hope we can all stand for morals instead of immoral church

Unfortunately, the Catholic Religion is done. Now every Catholic has come to the realization, as have I, that our religion is now strictly between us alone and God. WE ARE THE CATHOLIC CHURCH NOT SOME COMMUNIST POPE! This Pope is not our pope and never will be. The Church Cardinals need to make this make resign and elect a REAL Catholic Pope or he will be the LAST CATHOLIC POPE, as was predicted centuries ago! We have been born and baptized Catholics and therefore are ALWAYS GOING TO BE CATHOLICS UNTIL THE DAY WE DIE – no fake Pope is going to change that. Now it is between us and God – period!

Lupe, you do know these facts JESUS AND APOSTLES EXCEPT LUKE WERE ALL JEWS (NOT CATHOLICS) when the Jews rejected and killed him THEN the gentiles that’s ALL OF us including Catholics were given a chance to be SAVED.
AND NO PETER (A JEW) WAS NOT THE FIRST POPE UNTIL CATHOLIC CHURCH SAID HE WAS. PLEASE GENESIS THEN THE BOOK OF JOHN TO EXPLAIN THIS TO YOUR SELF . I tell you this because I want you to think about God, your standing before him and you being saved. The Catholic church cannot save you only Jesus and your belief in him and him ALONE will save you

Agree with the above! Peter was long dead before the catholic church was founded by King Constantine around 300 AD. There were NO catholic’s until then……repeat NONE. IT is a man-made religion and rumor has it Constantine was looking for a way to annul or divorce his wife in order to re-marry another, a BIG sin at the time. So he ‘conveniently’ formed his own religion! Please look at other non-catholic historians for the real truth. And yes I am a former catholic, yet now know the true God of my salvation.
And yes my 7 yo son was sexually assaulted by a catholic priest, and told by this person with authority over that young boy, that it was ‘normal’ for a priest to do this, and that his parents already knew. It took my son 40 yrs. of wrongful living to realize that it was not his fault.

AND THIS GOVERNMENT CONTINUES TO LET THE DOGS IN THE BLACK PJ’S CONTINUE TO DESTROY THESE YOUNG BOYS AND MEN’S LIVES.

WHEN I SEE ONE OF THOSE RELIGIOUS PERVERTS FEEDING HIS NEED ON THE BOYS MEN AND WIVES IT MAKES ME WANT TO PUKE AND TAKE MATTERS INTO MY OWN HANDS TO HELP PURGE THE NATION OF THESE DIRT BAGS PRETENDING TO BE ALL MIGHTY AND SUPERIOR TO THE COMMON PEOPLE.

Did you ever follow Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre? He was suspended for fighting the Modernist popes and Bishop’s. The only Bishop in the world who took a major stand to save the church. The Catholic Church is now underground separate from Rome. Rome is now the seat of the antichrist. Francis just installed pagan worship into the Churches. He’s Ipso Facto Excommunicated.

Agreed, Snuffy, but Trump ran his cabinet like a business, not a government, using, btw, the ‘GE Method” which is held up as the best way to do it by many business professors and professionals. You put someone in the job, see how they do and boot them when and if they screw up. No excuses. No delays. Minimal explanation. It looks sloppy and the media, for sure, used Trump’s revolving door cabinet to paint him as fickle and vindictive and scattered, when, in fact, it’s the way it’s done by people who care about gettin’ the job done. In politics, it’s all mutual protection. You put someone in a position as political pay0ff, whether there’s any reason to believe they can do the job. When, inevitably, they screw up, you don’t fire them. You cover for them. Unless they become a political liability (in which case they will be asked to resign or die in a plane accident – like Ron Brown, Clinton’s Commerce Secretary) you pretend that they aren’t the crooked, incompetent PoS you knew they were when you gave them the job. And the worse they do, the more likely they are to get the Presidential Medal of Freedom, so they can retire looking great instead of like the idiot and crook they are. BTW, didn’t Joe Biden get that medal? Just askin’…
