Over at Stop Genocide the always insightful Michelle comments on the Catholic Bishop Holocaust Denial scandal.
She asks for your comments – especially from the Catholics among us.
Not being Catholic myself, I can really only give a blanket condemnation of Holocaust denial — it’s a dangerous game which, as Fielder notes, fosters anti-Semitism. (As if we really need more hate in the world.) But I am very interested to hear from the Catholic community: What do y’all think about this? What are the implications, both within the Church and in its external relations, of the Pope’s decision? Please share your thoughts in the comments section.

And! Bishop Williams himself has a blog. Check it out if you want to see some of his letters about the issue, or photos of him consecrating chalices. Also check out his views on “True” and “False” anti-Semitism.
Finally – props to Angela Merkel for urging the Pope to reject this type of Holocaust denial.
