Catholic U.S. Lawmakers Call for Direct Repudiation

Saturday, January 31, 2009; Page B06

Fifty Catholic members of Congress have written Pope Benedict XVI, asking him to directly reject the views of British-born Bishop Richard Williamson, who has denied the scale of the Holocaust. Benedict last week reinstated Williamson and three other bishops who have rejected the church's teachings from the second Vatican Council. An excerpt:

"We understand that . . . you do not share in his views. And we welcome your recent statement expressing 'full and indisputable solidarity' with the Jewish people. But this is too sensitive an issue to be handled without a direct repudiation of Bishop Williamson's views. As a spiritual leader and the head of the Catholic Church, we believe it is vital that you publicly state your unequivocal position on this matter so that it is clear where the Church stands on one of the most consequential events of the 20th century. To neglect to do so is to allow others to portray it as they wish and impede the progress made over so many years toward harmony and reconciliation."

Comment from a ZGram reader:

As legislators, Congressmen are generally quite careful and even skilled at how they choose their words and, therefore, this statement is an ominous indication of where these people want to go. Apparently, freedom of speech and "tolerance" should NOT apply to the so-called "holocaust."
