“It is simply unacceptable that a Christian or even more a bishop … denies all that the Nazis had done against the Jewish people, their exterminations. How is it possible to be so cold-hearted about this? It is absolutely unacceptable …” (Archbishop Gerhard Ludwig Müller, National Catholic Register, October 4, 2012)
Archbishop Gerhard Müller is the Pope’s new appointee to head the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the office formerly known as the Congregation of the Universal Inquisition. As the heir to past Grand Inquisitors Archbishop Gerhard Müller asserts his authority for the suppression of heresy. Unlike past Inquisitors, Archbishop Gerhard Müller suppresses heresies against the doctrines of an alien creed heralded by Pope John Paul II in 1979 with the proclamation that Auschwitz is “the Golgotha of the modern world.”
A supposed intellectual, Archbishop Gerhard Ludwig Müller appeals to emotion wondering aloud how it’s possible that one could be so “cold-hearted” as to “deny” Holocaust Midrash. This is a reference to Bp. Williamson’s statement that the evidence is against claims that millions of ‘Jews’ were executed in gas chambers, a very reasonable observation given the absence of any substantive evidence supporting such a claim. Neither is there any evidence that such belief lowers heart temperature, but since Archbishop Müller raised the topic, I’d like to follow that thread.
Only 6 months before Bp. Williamson’s ‘Holocaust’ interview was aired, Bishop Fisher of Australia dismissed questions about his diocese’s mishandling of a priest who, much more recently than WWII, repeatedly raped two grade school girls (one of whom later committed suicide) saying those concerned were “dwelling crankily on old wounds.”
If Archbishop Müller criticized Bishop Fisher’s stone-cold-heartedness towards these priest-raped children, then or now, perhaps someone could direct me to the evidence of it. I’m not aware of any. This matter would concern Archbishop Müller because the CDF, which he heads, is the office which (mis)handles clergy sex abuse cases.
Who in their wildest imagination could picture a Novus Ordo bishop identifying ‘Holocaust’ obsession as “dwelling crankily on old wounds”?
This turns out to be another jarring study in contrast similar to our recent study of the Judeomaniac Cardinal Dolan.
The Church’s Grand Inquisitor today is not a figure who protects souls and perennial Catholic doctrine, rather, he suppresses ‘denial’ of Judaic ‘Holocaust’ Midrash and tears his garments in outrage at offenses against tender Judaic feelings. Such are the fruits of dialogue with the Pope’s fathers in the faith.
