Holocaust-denying bishop ‘apologizes’ for, but refuses to recant, his claims that only 300k died in Holocaust, no gas chambers

What a piece of work. First, he apologizes that his words offended some people – he just had no idea anyone would find it hurtful for him to claim that the Holocaust, for the most part, never happened. Uh huh. But putting that ridiculous claim aside (we’re now adding false witness to his crimes) he didn’t recant his views. Simply said he was surprised anyone found them offensive. How long is our German pope going to tolerate this hateful anti-Semitic nonsense?

(And anyone who doesn’t think it relevant that the first German pope is coddling Nazi sympathizers, well, clearly isn’t up on their history. The German Catholic church, and the German chancellor, clearly find it relevant, and they have rightfully stepped up to the plate and condemned this nut, in addition to castigating the Vatican for its tolerance of intolerance. And considering the historical whispers about the Vatican being far too accommodating of the Nazis, you’d think someone in the Holy See might want to get it right this time.)

I thought the Vatican simply had a soft spot for pedophiles. Apparently, we can now add genocidal Nazis to the list of papal peccadillos.

While Williamson apologized in a statement Thursday to all those who took offense and for the distress he caused, the bishop did not specifically say that his comments were erroneous, or that he no longer believed them.

“If I had known beforehand the full harm and hurt to which they would give rise, especially to the church, but also to survivors and relatives of victims of injustice under the Third Reich, I would not have made them,” Williamson was quoted as saying in the statement carried by the Zenit Catholic news agency.
