A Different Look at Pope Pius XII

Posted by JoeyBreak

If people are really protesting the papal visit to Rome's main synagogue, it wouldn't be such an awful thing to really read some of the more accurate historical information that exists before labeling Pope Benedict XVI or Pope Pius XII as anti-Semitic. Yahoo! News makes note of the controversy.

Anyone inclined to confront Benedict with historical myths and inaccuracies would do well to recall the message of gratitude Isaac Herzog, the chief Rabbi of Jerusalem, sent to Pius for his efforts to confront the Nazi terror in 1944: “The people of Israel will never forget what His Holiness and his illustrious delegates, inspired by the eternal principles of religion which form the very foundations of true civilization, are doing for our unfortunate brothers and sisters in this most tragic hour of history, which is living proof of divine providence in this world.” (February 28, 1944, Actes et Documents, volume X, pp. 291-292).  [Source]


In other news, I'd like to see Brett Favre lead the Vikings to a playoff win! Go Vikings!
