I am a amateur historian of World War II. I am well read on how the Nazi's rose to power and the horrific acts they committed. I have read of the Eizengruppen and how they followed the three army groups across the Ukraine.
I also know millions and millions of Slavs and Chinese died to the Axis powers. Most people get hung up on the Jews, but It's figured that 17 million Slavic's died to the SS. No one can come up with the number of Chinese killed, but it's at least 20 million.
Now the Pope has ex-excommunicated a Bishop who says the gas chambers never happened. Are you kidding me? I have personally spoken to soldiers that were THERE. Why is this nut job being re-instated as a priest of God?
The Jews are understandably pissed off. I personally think they, as a race, have been milking it long enough. Should I be getting sympathy for my Celtic ancestors being put to the sword by St. Patrick? Or for my Native American ancestors being the target of systematic genocide, forced relocation, etc? I didn't think so.
So now people are calling for his resignation. Isn't the Pope supposed to be God's main man on earth and is infallible? Was Pius XII infallible when he knew Priests were helping the Nazi's catch Jews, Gypsies, Homosexuals, etc?
Well I guess he isn't infallible. No MAN is infallible. This is the kind of nonsense that happens when we trust men in positions of absolute power. No matter how good the intention, eventually the system collapses because what one persons definition of "good" doesn't jive with everyone else's. I personally hate the organization knows as the Catholic church. Not the practitioners themselves at all, or I would have used a capital C on church. The hierarchical structure has historically been the source for a lot of evil in this world. From St. Patrick razing village after village saying "Kill them all for God shall know his own." To the active participation of priests and bishops in the Night of the Long Knives. I don't feel the Papacy gives a rats ass about 90% of the world, they just continue to crave the power they had in the Dark Ages.
Now we have priests of all denominations taking money from FEMA to help smooth the transition to martial law. I feel the God(s)(ess)(es) would deal rather harshly with those who literally shepherd their flock in support of a totalitarian regime. I know I will here on Earth. Be careful of all your leaders, not just the secular ones. Just because they have a Bible, or the Koran in their hands don't make them any better than anyone else.
