In a recent address, Michigan's Bishop Robert Gruss of the Diocese of Saginaw expressed his belief that President Joe Biden lacks a comprehensive understanding of Catholicism, despite the President's claims of devout faith.

The Bishop's comments were made during a lecture at the Cathedral of Mary of the Assumption on April 5, where he discussed the President's policies, which he believes are in stark contrast to the teachings of the Catholic Church.

According to Fox News, Bishop Gruss urged his congregation to examine their own negative feelings and resentments, not only towards individuals they know, but also towards public figures and institutions. "If you're harboring bad, negative, resentful feelings towards our president, you're not free," Gruss stated. "Otherwise, you're letting him control you and your thoughts and your words and your actions."

The Bishop further elaborated on the consequences of harboring such negative feelings, stating, "And I guarantee that if he is a problem for you, then those thoughts, words, and actions are negative — they're gonna come out and then we commit sin. That’s what sin is.”

In a light-hearted moment, Gruss asked his congregation, "How many times have you confessed your anger towards the president?" This question was met with laughter from the crowd, but Gruss insisted on the seriousness of his query, emphasizing the importance of confession in achieving freedom from resentment.

Regarding his personal feelings towards President Biden, Bishop Gruss expressed pity rather than anger. "I don’t have any anger towards the president. I feel sorry for him. I’m not angry at him, he’s just stupid," Gruss said, which was met with laughter from the congregation. He quickly clarified his statement, explaining, "It’s not stupidity in the derogatory way, it’s stupidity in the sense of […] he doesn’t understand the Catholic faith.”
