Germany Investigating Williamson For Holocaust Denial

leave a comment »

While the Vatican lifted the excommunication of Bishop Williamson last week, they have publically denounced his views denying the Holocaust.

In a front-page article, the Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano reaffirmed that Pope Benedict XVI deplored all forms of anti-Semitism and that all Roman Catholics must do the same.

The article was issued amid an outcry from Jewish groups that Benedict last week lifted the excommunication of a traditionalist bishop, Richard Williamson, who has denied that 6 million Jews were murdered during World War II.

The Vatican has stressed that that removing the excommunication by no means implied the Vatican shared Williamson’s views.

The Vatican stated that Williamson’s views violate Church’s teachings. Then, pray tell me… why allow him to continue to be a bishop with full faculties? Are Williamson’s outspoken and inhumane viewpoints worse than men who see nothing wrong with women becoming priests and women excommunicated for wanting to serve the Lord?

Germany is now investigating Bishop Williamson for violating German law which makes it a criminal offense to deny the Holocaust. Nice. Talk about war crimes.
