Pope Blames Atheists for the Holocaust

Benedict XVI used the first papal state visit to Britain today to launch a blistering attack on "atheist extremism" and "aggressive secularism", and to rue the damage that "the exclusion of God, religion and virtue from public life" had done in the last century.

The leader of the Roman Catholic church concluded a speech, made before the Queen and assembled dignitaries at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, with the argument that the Nazi desire to eradicate God had led to the Holocaust and a plea for 21st-century Britain to respect its Christian foundations.

Oh, really? Let's go to the other side and see what evidence they have. Or another source.

Or, if you believe that a picture is equivalent to 1K words:

Blaming atheism for the atrocities of Germany before and during the Second World War is a wholesale re-writing of the historical record. It is a rewriting of history worthy of the "we have always been at war with Oceania" revisions contained in 1984. It is the sort of crap that one might expect to be spewed by the likes of Mel Gibson in a drunken rage, not by a man who is the so-called "Vicar of Christ".

The Queen is, no doubt a very courteous hostess. But after that screed by Pope Heinrich Benedict, I think that she could be forgiven for thanking the Pope for the urban renewal preparations done by his countrymen in 1940-41 and 1944-45.

I really think that you should give his theory some thought. After all, if there's one thing that Benny the Kraut has first-hand knowledge of, it's Nazism.

Poopal offal.

First I expect the Pope to damn everything that is not catholic that is the norm.

The catholics were well surrounded by both of the axis powers Germany and Italy and their role even if passive was one of denialism. The picture is
untouched history.

I suspect there are a bunch of embarrassed catholics about now . . .
At least I should hope so.
