At Rome synagogue, Pope defends Nazi-era Vatican
"Pope Benedict XVI used his first visit to Rome's synagouge on Sunday to defend the oft-criticized actions of the Vatican during the Holocaust, saying the Church had "acted in a discreet and hidden way."
When Catholic priests spewed their venom and drummed up Jew-killing, there was nothing discreet and hidden. The representatives of the Church were outspoken and vociferous in their hatred towards Jews. For over a thousand years before the Holocaust the Church openly and stridently helped destroy Jews.
But to help a Jew they had to be hidden and discreet.
Centuries ago, it was a pope that forced Jews into a Ghetto in Italy.
And rather than open the archives of the Holocaust Pope and prove that he was at all a decent human, they choose to keep their information as hidden and discreet as was their help.
I spit on the Pope and the Church and the whole lot of hypocritical offspring of genocidal mania.
