    Pope move ignites Holocaust row

    Link
    BBC NEWS | Europe | Pope move ignites Holocaust row

    How can anyone who claims to be able to have a reasonable and sane mind actually condone a Holocaust denier?
    And yet, here we have once again the Holy Roman Catholic Church in it's wisdom doing just that.
    Typical hypocrisy from a typically hypocritical Church headed by an obviously unrepentant Nazi.

    I have lowered my expectations when it comes to the Catholic Church. First it was priestly sexual abuse with children. Then came the hypocritical condemnation of the "pursuit of wealth". I guess it is quite telling that this hardly even phases me.

    The Papacy is a long-standing joke between Christians. It's only recently that the walls of a "laughing-matter" have fallen down. Back in the day, when Europe was rampantly Christian, the Papal States mattered. Now... who do they do again?

    I came so close to making a reference to the walls falling down and that of little altar boy's pants, but I hold myself to higher standards.

    haha

    Re: Pope move ignites Holocaust row

    Talk about an idiotic thread. This has nothing to do with a belief that the holocaust (or Sheol) never existed. This is about lifting an order for excommunication, NOT condoning their personal beliefs.

    From the link in the OP:


    Bishop Richard Williamson recently told Swedish TV: "I believe there were no gas chambers. I think that two to three hundred thousand Jews perished in Nazi concentration camps but none of them by gas chambers."

    The Vatican has distanced itself from those remarks.

    But its spokesman, Rev Federico Lombardi, still stood by the decision to rehabilitate Bishop Williamson and the others.

    "This act regards the lifting of the excommunications, period," he told reporters.

    "It has nothing to do with the personal opinions of a person, which are open to criticism, but are not pertinent to this decree."
    Of course, facts like this will do nothing to assuage those with an irrational hatred for the Roman Catholic Church.

    The papacy - distanced itself from those remarks. But it still rehabilitated him knowing he'd made such remarks and held such positions. Seems pretty ****ed up anyway you look at it.

    All the Papacy did was lift excommunication. Do you know what this means? Does this mean that everyone who receives the Sacrament on Sundays agrees with EVERYTHING the Papacy teaches? I don't agree with the Pope on everything, yet in a few hours, I will be partaking of the Eucharistic Sacrament. THis is much ado about nothing.

    Unless of course you believe that people don't have the right to believe what they want to. This is NOT a religious matter, thus it is not grounds for excommunication.
