“I do not wish to belong to the same Church as Williamson . . .”
So says Catholic Damien Thompson, in the Telgraph of London, in response to Pope Benedict reversing the excommunication of Holocaust-denier Richard Williamson.
Read Thompson’s full response to the Pope’s breathtakingly perverse decision here.
And see Bishop Williamson calmly and matter-of-factly expressing his antisemitism and Holocaust-denial here:
The irony, of course, is that, by revoking this man’s excommunication, Pope Benedict has made it clear that one can be a person who is going to heaven, and also be a FASCIST—but no Protestant, Jew, or Muslim can obtain to the same status without conversion to Catholicism!
In other words, fascists can remain fascists, and continue in the good graces of God, and go to heaven, but many others who are not fascists cannot.
Put another way: Whether you’re a fascist or not just really doesn’t matter all that much to Pope Benedict or God.
Think about that.
The Pope cannot be bothered to see the FASCIST for the trees.
