(CNS News) -- Pastor Ed Meeks, who leads Christ The King Catholic Church in Towson, Md., told his congregation that there are three "non-negotiables" for Catholics when it comes to voting: sanctity of life, sanctity of marriage, and religious liberty.

As for Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden, Fr. Meeks said the "Democrat Party is the Party of Death" and Biden is its leader. 

Fr. Meeks' message was so succinct that Protestant Rev. Franklin Graham promoted it on Facebook, stating, "it really is this clear. I’m not a Catholic, but Father Ed Meeks states the facts that in this election we are facing biblical and moral issues that should be vitally important to all people of faith. Take a minute to listen to this."

In his Oct. 11 sermon, Fr. Meeks said, "In all of the fog and the confusion and spin that surrounds every political season, we must, as faithful Catholics, conscientiously vote in such a way that best upholds and protects these non-negotiable values: the sanctity of life, the sanctity of marriage, and religious liberty."

"Joe Biden is unabashedly pro-abortion," said Fr. Meeks. "This fact is clear from his long voting record, and from his party's platform, not only in this election year, but in their platform going back decades."

"He and they support abortion for any reason or for no reason, right up to and even beyond the moment of birth," Meeks added.

"He and they opposed the effort in Congress to pass legislation requiring doctors who perform abortions to provide medical care to babies who survive the abortion, opting rather to let such babies die," said Fr. Meeks. 

"The Democratic Party has become the Party of Death and Catholic Joe Biden is their standard-bearer," he said.

"Joe Biden opposes the church's teaching on the sanctity of marriage," said the pastor.  "While he was vice president he publicly endorsed same-sex 'marriage' in 2012, three years before the Supreme Court ruling. And in 2016 while still the vice president he officiated over the 'wedding' ceremony of two men."

Fr. Meeks also discussed how Biden wants to repeal the Hyde Amendment, an action that would result in U.S. taxpayers paying for abortions.
