Pope Embraces Holocaust Denier?


Not my usual territory, but I find it interesting that the pope appears to be moving resolutely to reconciling with the ultra-traditionalist Society of Pius X, apparently lifting the excommunication of its four bishops. This, of course, includes the notorious antisemite and Holocaust denier, Bishop Richard Williamson. What exactly this is supposed to mean, and what outsiders should divine, is not at all clear.

But, it does feel creepy…

Written a bit later: It turns out the deed has actually been done.

Still feels creepy…
