Followup: 'Holocaust Bishop' is Fired

Some good news. I wrote about the 'Holocaust Bishop', a Roman Catholic priest who denies the holocaust yet was having his excommunication lifted by the Pope. Happily, things are being put right. Bishop Williamson was fired from his post as the head of a Roman Catholic seminary in Argentina.

Sadly, although the Vatican ordered him to repudiate his claims about the holocaust, he is refusing. The BBC quotes the Bishop: "I believe that the historical evidence is strongly against, is hugely against six million Jews having been deliberately gassed in gas chambers as a deliberate policy of Adolf Hitler." Let's hope the Pope takes very strong action indeed to distance the Roman Catholic Church from this man.

  1. I believe a fair number of Catholics were also targeted by the holocaust. Is the bishop denying that also?
