SSPX i Spiegel

Spiegel Online har publisert en engelsk oversettelse av sitt intervju med SSPX-biskop og Holocaust-benekter Richard Williamson. Den viktigste biten er som følger:

SPIEGEL: How can an educated Catholic deny the Holocaust?

Williamson: I addressed the subject in the 1980s. I had read various writings at the time. I cited the Leuchter report (eds. note: a debunked theory produced in the 1980s claiming erroneously that the Nazi gas chambers were technically impractical) in the interview, and it seemed plausible to me. Now I am told that it has been scientifically refuted. I plan now to look into it.

SPIEGEL: You could travel to Auschwitz yourself.

Williamson: No, I will not travel to Auschwitz. I've ordered the book by Jean-Claude Pressac. It's called "Auschwitz: Technique and Operation of the Gas Chambers." A printout is now being sent to me, and I will read it and study it.

SPIEGEL: The Society of Saint Pius X has set an ultimatum for the end of February. Are you not risking a break with the group?

Williamson: In the Old Testament, the Prophet Jonah tells the sailors when their ship is in distress: " Take me up, and cast me forth into the sea; so shall the sea be calm unto you: for I know that for my sake this great tempest is upon you." The Society has a religious mission that is suffering because of me. I will now examine the historic evidence. If I do not find it convincing, I will do everything in my power to avoid inflicting any further harm on the Church and the Society.

Det kan faktisk se ut som Williamson kan komme til å krype til korset allikevel (er det en uheldig metafor?). Skjønt, jeg tror det ikke før jeg ser det.

Didrik sa...

David Irving krøp jo til kosh.., eh, korset, i holocaustsaken (milde ord så smakløse ordspill man kan få av dette). Så hvorfor skulle ikke Williamson gjøre det samme?
