    ABC News: Pope Welcomes Holocaust Denier Back to Fold

    Pope Benedict XVI has lifted the excommunications of four traditionalist bishops, including that of a Holocaust denier whose rehabilitation sparked outrage among Jewish groups.
    ...

    But the move came just days after one of the four, British Bishop Richard Williamson, was shown in a Swedish state TV interview saying that historical evidence "is hugely against 6 million Jews having been deliberately gassed."

    You'd be more accurate calling Obama a drug dealer than Pope Benedict XVI a Nazi. But, you'd be the first to go off on anyone stretching the truth about your messiah huh. :rolleyes:

    The Pope was a Nazi. That's been well documented. He was in the Hitler youth brigade and then was a soldier. I guess he felt that God would not protect him if he resisted. He was not one of the brave Germans.

    Is there any evidence that Obama dealt drugs? He's tried some. But, I never read that he was a dealer. What's your fine source for this information?

    And are you defending the Pope for un-excommunicating a Holocaust denier? Do you believe that the Holocaust occurred, or is it not a big deal to you?

    Protestants were always told by these people that they wern't going to heaven because they wern't Catholics.

    Heaven 7:30 AM:
    Gate Keeper "welcome"
    New Arrival "thank you"
    Gate Keeper "you are now in heaven, you may go anywhere you wish except through that green door, never ever enter that green door"
    New Arrival "why"
    Gate Keeper "because thats where the catholics are and they think they're the only ones up here"
    New Arrival "ok"

    My family is loaded with them, when I get drunk I play the piano and sing hymns to them, it drives then nuts, the only hymn they know is Ava Maria.

    F*** the Pope.

    He was a Nazi youth. Says he was forced, is he also forced to hide pedophiles in the Vatican?

    May I ask why?

    Because I said "**** the Pope", worse have been said by others, just because you wear a ridiculous hat doesn't make you immune from criticism. He hides pedophile enablers(Bernard Law) and obviously welcomes Holocaust deniers.

    The joining of the Nazi Youth was required when he was enrolled at the time and he was never a believer in the Nazi ideology and didn't ever attend Youth meetings. Besides the Nazis hated the Church.
    More twisting of the truth by liberals. "Nazi who became Pope". :rolleyes:

    Hitler was no religious guru. He didn't attack the church in public. In schools the Nazis forbid daily prayers. Hitler Youth songs attacked christianity and praised Hitler as their god like figure.

    Also the Nazis were big fans of euphanasia, and abortion which the church stands firmly against.

    There are many many things that proved the Nazis weren't fans of the church. Some pictures don't tell the story.

    I am far from a liberal, probably the polar opposite and I don't buy that. The Catholic church acted disgusting during WWII and the Holocaust.

    Yes, he was forced to join the Hitler youth, and then forced to join the military and got out of service because of some mysterious illness. He certainly didn't show any courage -- not that I blame him, but the fact remains that his faith was not strong enough for him to stand up for what was right even as a young man. Those are the facts. You would think someone with his kind of background would have greater sensitivity than to de-excommunicate a priest who is a Holocaust denier. That fact that he doesn't makes it appear that he's a morally weak man. The fact that many accuse him of helping to coverup the child abuse scandals of the church lend further credence to the belief that he is morally weak.

    Why don't you think Hitler was ever excommunicated? That would have been a powerful symbolic step. While it's true that Nazis did not have good relations with the church, they were for the most part respectful. (After all, Mein Kampf was edited by a priest.)

    So many brave Germans didn't stand up against the Nazis. I wouldn't expect a teenager to stand up and speak out against the Nazis. I'm sure many people would have let the Nazis reign supreme if they were in Germany during that time.

    Thus I am unwilling to call him a "Nazi". If we do call him a nazi, then it would make sense to call a large amount of Germans at the time "Nazis".
