    As for what the news service reports, I often take what they say with a grain of salt. I will have to gather more evidence before I pass judgement. I suggest you do the same.
    Being so learned on the topic you know that there are other Bishops as well who continue the blame the Jews speech, that helped generate the hatred which was a good background for the Germans to jump on.

    I do know that my great parents home was ransacked by Poles ( almost all of whom are Catholic) after they were sent to concentration camps. So I do not need your textbooks to tell me why the Poles and the Church are innocent.

    That being said, as a matter of fact I am married to a Catholic, and unlike the stereotypes people use like blame the Jews I do not lump all of any creed in one basket.

    Then you know little about the teachings of the Church. The Church HELPED Jews during the Shoah (Holocaust), spoke OUT against the "Blood Libel" and many other instances in history when the Church spoke out on behalf of the discrimination Jews received in many of Europe's kingdoms in the past...

    No offense but I am getting a bit annoyed with this. So let's just agree to disagree.

    Have a great day.

    I am getting annoyed with cop-outs who come on here with their anti-Catholic rants, don't read the articles in question, and have little knowledge of history and no appreciation for the situation we are talking about (to wit: both the current situation with the Church as well as the alleged lack of action and your implication that Catholics were somehow involved in the Holocaust)

    You make disgusting statements, and then you cop out and "agree to disagree." SICKENING!

    Now I am annoyed by you. You can kid yourself about the officials of your religion. You can't fool others.

    I made as mild statements about a powerful group of a multi-billion dollar organization that allowed their workersto terrorize children for decades.

    Not sure why moderators on this site allow for your personal attack. Maybe they believe in this guy in rome like you do.

    Only a morally bankrupt Pope could describe news of his direct involvement in the cover-up of sexual abuse of children within the church, as "petty gossip".
    Don't work out, work in.

    I am not sure where the line blurs between religion and cult. It could be that the defenders of this guy are acting like cult memebrs versus rational thinking humans.

    I have very good reading comprehension. However, it seem you ignored everything else I said in that one post to say the lest. I would say you don't have really good reading comprehension yourself. Hell, half of my family are Irish Catholics(on my mother side), so yes I am kind of pissed off at the pope..

    Pissed off at the Pope for what? Not knowing about the case in Wisconsin that so many people in the US seems to be intent on ripping on him about?
