Time For Jesus To Take Out The Trash!
[From top to bottom: Pope Benedict XVI, Bishop Richard Williamson]
[Yet again, apologies to my Catholic friends; this ain't about you.]
Vatican II is definitely past its sell-by date, since the Pope formerly known as Cardinal Joseph Ratbastard™ has un-excommunicated Holocaust denying bishop Richard Williamson:
Pope Benedict XVI’s rehabilitatation of a British bishop who denies that millions of Jews died in Nazi gas chambers has alarmed Catholics who fear it risks dealing a fatal blow to the inter-faith dialogue promoted by his predecessor.
Over the weekend the Pope issued a decree welcoming back into the Roman Catholic Church Richard Williamson, 68, and three other breakaway bishops excommunicated by John Paul II in 1988. The bishops had been ordained without Vatican permission by the renegade French archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, who rejected the reforms of the Second Vatican Council.
Hmmmm....doesn't sound like "rehabilitation" to me. The Unholy See's just getting back to business as usual: falsely blaming the Joos for killing that extra-special Joo about two millenia ago. (They won't come right out and say it, but that's what this crap's all about.)
Too bad that even with all of his spooky Son O' God powers, Jesus hasn't ever returned again to smite Benedict or his many vile predecessors, not to mention despicable second-stringers like Williamson.
Walking on water or changing it to wine's quite well and good, but I really wish he'd go all moneychanger on the Papal ass.
And quelle surprise that there's a French collaborator in this mess. Plus, as I've previously stated, you can take the Kraut out of the Fatherland, but you just can't take the Fatherland out of the Kraut.
Benedict’s actions are also reviving his old nickname when he was Cardinal Ratzinger — that of the “Panzerkardinal”, known for his hardline conservatism as head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
Well, I suppose they couldn’t very well have called him the *cough* “ZyklonBkardinal” *cough*, since that, er, never happened.
“This is not so much an act of grace as a surrender,” the veteran Vatican watcher Marco Politi said. Benedict wanted a new era of reconciliation, “but the new era has begun with a lie. The Pope has made a openly declared and unshakeable anti-Semite a legitimate Bishop”.
It's a goddamned miracle...a German surrendering to a Frenchman; what an age we live in!
Bishop Williamson, who has said that the Vatican is controlled by Satan and that the Jews are bent on world domination, reiterated in a broadcast last week on Swedish television that the historical evidence was “hugely against six million having been deliberately gassed in gas chambers as a deliberate policy of Adolf Hitler. I believe there were no gas chambers”.
Well then, Bishop...if the Vatican is controlled by Satan and you've just been un-excommunicated, whose minion does that make you, Mr. Smartypants?
I think that someone needs a little exorcism. Or perhaps it's time for his dirt-nap.
Father Federico Lombardi, the papal spokesman, insisted the lifting of the excommunications had “absolutely nothing to do” with Williamson’s views on the Holocaust. “One is not connected to the other,” he said. Vatican Radio said Williamson’s statements had been condemned by other members of the St Pius X fraternity.
That's rather a large load of Holy Shit.
