Benedict at Auschwitz

Bowing before the idol of Holocaustolatry

“… the shock of the Shoah has put the whole question under a new light … Can Christians, after all that has happened, still claim in good conscience to be the legitimate heirs of Israel’s Bible? Have they the right to propose a Christian interpretation of this Bible, or should they not instead, respectfully and humbly, renounce any claim that, in the light of what has happened, must look like a usurpation?” (Joseph Ratzinger, The Jewish People and their Sacred Scripture in the Christian Bible May 24, 2001)

    “Can Christians, after all that has happened, still claim in good conscience to be the legitimate heirs of Israel’s Bible?”
    To be precise, that was never a claim that could be made in good faith.
    “Have they the right to propose a Christian interpretation of this Bible?”
    No, esp. considering that the interpretation that has been proposed is a matter of fanciful, wishful thinking that has nothing to do with the content or the language of the text (based on mis-translations)

    “or should they not instead, respectfully and humbly, renounce any claim that, in the light of what has happened, must look like a usurpation?”
    What an excellent idea, this guy is onto something. I couldn’t have said it better myself.
