Holocaust denier will review evidence -- WOW -- I can't wait to find out what happened to all those Jews, Gypsies, Trade Unionists, and Homosexuals

-- not to be overly easy on the former bishop who's been hiding out in Argentina* (ahh, land of the gauchos and the Catholic Nazi war criminals like Adolf Eichmann), but he's going to take his time "reviewing" the evidence about the Big Scale Human Sacrifice of "THEM" during the time of the Third Reich (it's always "THEM," whether defined by Aztecs or Mayans or 20th Century Germans), reviewing the evidence to decide for himself if it ever happened** -- it may seem ludicrous, but there's an unconfirmed report that ex-Bishop Williamson was seen actually SKIPPING down the street in Buenos Aires singing:

"Hotsy Totsy -- Our Pope's a Nazi,
you can forget Excommunication
when you're living in a Catholic Nation."


Feb 7th, 2009 | BERLIN -- A bishop who faces a Vatican demand to recant his denial of the Holocaust said he would correct himself if he is satisfied by the evidence, but insisted that examining it "will take time," a German magazine reported Saturday.

Richard Williamson is one of four bishops from the ultraconservative Society of St. Pius X whose excommunication was lifted by the Vatican last month. The decision sparked outrage because Williamson had said in a television interview he did not believe any Jews were gassed during the Holocaust.

On Wednesday, the Vatican demanded that Williamson recant his denial before he can be admitted as a bishop into the Roman Catholic Church.

Williamson made clear he does not plan to comply immediately, and rejected a suggestion that he might visit the Auschwitz death camp, the weekly Der Spiegel reported.

"Since I see that there are many honest and intelligent people who think differently, I must look again at the historical evidence," the British bishop was quoted as saying.

"It is about historical evidence, not about emotions," he added, according to the report. "And if I find this evidence, I will correct myself. But that will take time."

The magazine suggested that he could make a personal visit to Auschwitz, set up by the Nazis in occupied Poland, which stands as the most powerful symbol of the Holocaust. More than 1 million people, mostly Jews, died there.

Williamson replied: "I will not go to Auschwitz," Der Spiegel said.

Der Spiegel said Williamson, who lives in Argentina, insisted on having questions faxed to him and sent his replies by e-mail. It said their authenticity was confirmed in a phone call by Williamson and a lawyer for the Society of St. Pius X.

Williamson has apologized to Pope Benedict XVI for having stirred controversy, but has not repudiated his comments, in which he also said only 200,000 to 300,000 Jews were killed during World War II and none was gassed.

"I was convinced that my comments were right on the basis of my research in the '80s," Der Spiegel quoted Williamson as saying. "I must now examine everything again and look at the evidence."


*90% Roman Catholic -- see earlier posting about PIUS XII and his protection of the Roman Catholics who comprised the inner circle of the Third Reich: "You Can Take the Boy Out of the Hitler Youth, but You Can't Take the Hitler Youth Out of the Boy, Part II. (This is NOT a blanket smear of the Roman Catholic Church. Comparing Benny XVI to actual Roman Catholics -- the ones who take what Jesus said seriously (I even KNOW some of those) -- is like comparing Martin Luther King, Jr to David Duke because both of them are/were southerners, or comparing Dr. King to Father Coughlin because both of them were clergy.


Funny how a devotee of the "You tell me what is the holy truth of the universe and I'll kneel and pray to it" school NOW wants to "find out for himself." He doesn't even get to decide what to wear.
