Pope’s Grand Inquisitor: "Cold-Hearted" "Denial" of ‘Holocaust’ "Absolutely Unacceptable"

October 4, 2012

“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.

Note that in the interview, which took place April 5, 2009, Bishop Fellay says he believes that first contact with Rome regarding doctrinal discussions could take place as early as June 2009. Coincidentally, Bishop Fellay was reported to have visited the CDF last week (en Español, in English).

On April 18, 2009, it was revealed on Bishop Williamson’s Dinoscopus blog that Bishop Tissier de Mallerais had stated that it had been decided that the form of the discussions would be in writing and that they would not be made public.

Rorate Caeli reported:

Roadmap for Holy See – SSPX doctrinal talks established

According to French Rome-based religious news agency I.Media, as reported by Italian news agency ASCA (translation by Father Zuhlsdorf):

This morning the Vatican Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith discussed how to begin the doctrinal dialogue with the Lefebvrite Preiestly Fraternity of St. Pius X, for whom four bishops – among whom is the negationist [Bp.] Richard Williamson – Pope Benedict XVI in February revoked an excommunication.

According to the French agency I.Media, the cardinals of the ex-Holy Office – to whom Pope Ratzinger entrusted the dialogue wiht the Lefebvrites in view of their eventual reinstatement, in the future, in the structure of the Church – discussed a text “drawn up to clarify the parameter of the doctrinal dialogue with the Fraternity”. This dialogue should start with the necessity “of accepting the Second Vatican Council and the Magisterium of the Pope” subsequent to the Council.

According to I.Media, the Superior of the Lefebvrites, [Bp.] Bernard Fellay, was received at the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith on 5 June last and, even if there hasn’t been identified the “team” which on the two sides will effectively conduct the dialogue, it is probable that there will take part the Swiss Domincan Fr. Charles Morerod, the new Secretary for the International Theological Commission and, on the part of the Lefebvrites, Fr. [l’abbate] Gregoire Celier, co-author of a recent book on Benedict XVI.

Meanwhile, as the “doctrinal” dialogue with the Vatican moves along its first steps, the Lefebvrites have decided to challenge again the authority of the of the Pope, announcin the ordination of at least 21 new priests in three parts of the world.
