The Vatican has demanded that a bishop who denied the Holocaust must recant his position before being fully readmitted into the Roman Catholic Church.
The Vatican also said in a statement Wednesday that Pope Benedict XVI didn’t know about Bishop Richard Williamson’s views when he agreed to lift his excommunication and that of three other ultraconservative bishops last week.
Does anyone buy that with the vast amount of knowledge that the Catholic Church possesses that there was any chance that the Pope didn’t know about the Bishop’s Holocaust denials?
Ze Jews were not very happy about this one.
It’s good to know that political pressure can work. Twice in two days, people have backed off. With Obama and his tax cheats and with the Pope and his head-burying bishop.
