I have been following this business of the reinstated bishop with half an ear...you know the one who is a Holocaust denier? You won't find me defending a lunatic like that. In my opinion he is certainly a kook, and most likely a racist. Unless he offers a sincere and thorough apology, he should be removed in my opinion. What I find most infuriating about this whole thing is that in some cases the voices calling for his removal and for the Pope to step down are the very same who vigorously defend and appease Hamas, Hezbollah, and Iran in their genocidal policies toward the modern state of Israel. Which is the greater error- to deny a historical fact or to deny current realities? They are not opposed to antisemitism per se, just when it suits their purposes.
