“Auschwitz, along with so many other concentration camps, remains the horribly eloquent symbol of the effects of totalitarianism. It is our duty to make a pilgrimage to these places, in mind and heart, on this 50th anniversary. As I said at the Mass celebrated in 1979 at Brzezinka near Auschwitz: ‘I kneel at this Golgotha of the modern world.‘”(Message of John Paul II on 50th Anniversary of the end of WWII in Europe, May 8, 1995)

In this outrageous statement the Pope was reaffirming the earlier proclamation of Rabbi Ignaz Maybaum who said, “The Golgotha of modern man is Auschwitz.”

“It’s absolutely clear that a Holocaust denier can’t have a room, a space in the Catholic church”

“Being a Catholic is Radically Incompatible With Denying the Holocaust”

“It is clear that one cannot be Catholic if he denies the Shoah.”

“Someone who denies the Holocaust, the Shoah, can not be restored to church office”

Rabbi, "Holocaust Scholar" Kosher Stamps John Paul II Beatification

Rabbi Michael Berenbaum’s “Holocaust” fundamentalist absolutism stands to benefit greatly from a JPII beatification.

“As I observe young people in relativistic societies seeking an absolute for morals and values, they now can view the Holocaust as the transcendental move away from the relativistic, and up into the absolute where the Holocaust confronts absolute Evil [=Nazism] and thus find fundamental values.” (Rabbi Michael Berenbaum, speaking at Stockholm International Forum on the Holocaust, January 26-28, 2000)

Michael Berenbaum, a rabbi and Holocaust scholar, has praised the Vatican announcement of Pope John Paul II’s beatification.

“Jews have no right to register an opinion on whom the Roman Catholic Church beautifies [sic] and whom it considers a saint,” he writes. “Nevertheless, this has not stopped us from asserting our disapproval of the efforts to canonize Pope Pius XII, the man who served as Pope during the Holocaust.”

“Though I have no vote,” he concludes, “were I to have [a] vote, I would be honored to consider Pope John Paul II a saint, not a saint without flaws, or human fallibility but a saint nevertheless.”
