How stupid can one be? Pope Benedict who himself was German and alive when the holocaust happens reinstates a Bishop who denies the holocaust? The Holocaust the most well documented atrocity in human history?
A Roman Catholic bishop, ordered by the Vatican to recant his denial of the Holocaust, says he will re-examine the research upon which he made his conclusion that no Jews were gassed by the Nazi regime, a German magazine reported Saturday.
Bishop Richard Williamson of the ultra-conservative Society of St. Pius X told Germany’s Der Spiegel magazine that based on research he did in the 1980s, he became convinced of his views about the Holocaust, which historians say resulted in the deaths of six million Jews.
Williamson is quoted by Der Spiegel as saying he would re-examine “everything again and look at the evidence.” However, he said he won’t be visiting the site of the Auschwitz concentration camp.
“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.
