An anti-Semitic Vatican just does not get it!

My friend, Bob Poris, pointed me to an article by Cnaan Liphshiz, a correspondent for Haaretz.

It begins thusly: "In lifting the excommunication of Bishop Richard Williamson who has been accused of Holocaust denial last month, the Catholic Church also readmitted a priestly society that openly propagates virulent anti-Semitism, according to a probe by a Belgian Jewish newspaper."

Pope Benny 16 lifted the Church's excommunication of The Society of St. Pius X in January. Since then it has been discovered that the Society has "a slew of anti-Semitic content" in five languages on its website.

For example: You will read the Society thinks Jews are "the enemy of man, whose secret weapon is the leaven of the Pharisees which is hypocrisy" ... and that "heads of Jewry have for centuries conspired methodically and out of an undying hatred against the Catholic name."

Worse, the Society would have us believe that "contemporary Jews are for sure guilty of the murder of God, as long as they don't recognize Christ as God."

It is interesting that some of this anti-Semitic crap was being deleted as soon as the Society got wind it was being investigated.

Michael Freelich, editor of an Antwerp-based Jewish news publication involved in the probe, relates that the Society has somewhere between 600,000 and a million followers. But the real problem, says Freelich is its continuing anti-Semitic ravings. "Williamson's Holocaust denial has attracted much attention, but this anti-Semitic content is in many ways worse because he is a lone fool and not taken seriously by the masses, whereas here we are talking about an entire society spreading hatred around the world."

Some folks want us to believe that Benny 16 is unaware of all this; that Benny 16 sits in isolation in the Vatican and is sheltered from the storms brewing in the Church.

That is bullshit. Benny was a Hitler Youth. Benny knows damn well what's going on. Benny would never have lifted the excommunication if he gave a damn about the Jewish people. Benny is trying to play on both sides. It won't work.

Something has to give. And it's about time that the "give" comes from Benny himself and the rest of the pious, pretend prelates who represent an organization that instigated and perpetrated so much murderous anti-Semitism down through the centuries; an organization that, instead of excommunicating Catholic communicant Adolf Hitler and the swarm of Roman Catholic officials who worked for him, bent over and kissed their anti-Semitic asses!

The facts remain; the Bishop is a vicious anti Semite and should be outside the Catholic Church! He and his followers do great harm and must be condemned.

Incidentally, I recommend reading some foreign newspapers for different views. We do not get all the news in our media and some is slanted especially re Israel and the Middle East.
