Pope Pius XII and Historical Revisionism

April 17, 2010

I have read yet another diatribe against Pope Pius XII, repeating the official line of shadowy plutocrats who soon after WWII wanted to stop the influence of all Christianity in general, both Catholic and Biblical, against their own dictatorial takeover of the world’s culture and political reality.

So says Rabbi David G. Dalin wrote in the Weekly Standard of February 26, said all this criticism of Pius XII “…have less to do with the truth and history than “an intra-Catholic argument about the direction of the Church today, with the Holocaust simply the biggest club
available for liberal Catholics to use against traditionalists….”

He also says “…it has less to do with truth and history than “an intra-Catholic argument
about the direction of the Church today, with the Holocaust simply the biggest club
available for liberal Catholics to use against traditionalists….”

What he left out is that it is also a club used against all followers of Christ, who have traditionally been the ones who stood during these 2,000 years against human brutality against fellow humans, slavery, against the apostasy of the rulers of the Catholic Inquisitions, against the slaughter of innocent babies, on and on goes the list.

The Roman Catholic Church has plenty of historical atrocities to lay at its doorstep without making up total fabrications like this one is, including behind-the-scenes work before, during, and since WWII to bring Protestants back into their hegemony.

Injustices are many, like those perpetrated on Protestants, the Jesuits’ attempt to destroy King James and stop the work on the King James Bible in the Gunpowder Plot, and the historical Inquisition so prominent in textbooks but whose main target was Bible-preaching Christians. Now THAT’S something they didn’t make so prominent in those books.

But the only logical purpose for such disinformation on recent history about the then Pope is to game the current body politic for some purpose, and to do it they have to tell lies.

None other than Albert Einstein actually LIVED in Germany during the ascendancy of the Nazi Party, and left in protest and self-preservation in 1933 when Hitler came to power.

Consider these historical facts laid out by someone who is an actual professional historian, as opposed to some opinionated writer, here:

“…In 1940, Albert Einstein defended the Roman Catholic Church as the only institution in Nazi Germany that “stood squarely across the path of Hitler’s campaign for suppressing truth.” Rome’s chief rabbi, Israel Zolli, converted to Catholicism at the end of the war. Pius received delegations of death camp survivors who came to thank him for saving lives. The founders of Israel, including Chaim Weizmann, praised him repeatedly, and when he died, Israel’s foreign minister, Golda Meir, saluted him for having spoken out when “fearful martyrdom came to our people.” Among those who have described Pius XII as a “righteous Christian” is distinguished historian Sir Martin Gilbert, probably the world’s greatest authority on the Holocaust and the official biographer of Sir Winston Churchill. …”

Einstein cannot be called stupid, nor can he be slandered as gullible, nor as some kind of shill for Catholics. Yet that is the consequence of this revisionist effort reminescent of pages from George Orwell’s 1984. Rather Vladimir Lenin would be proud of the way they have manipulated his “useful idiots”.

Nor the CHIEF RABBI of Israel during those dark days, who CONVERTED TO CATHOLICISM after witnessing what that Pope had done for the Jews. Golda Meir is another, who praised the Pope after hearing from thousands of Holocaust survivors and rabbis who witnessed events inside German-occupied lands, doubtless including some of the 7,000 Jews that were protected inside the VATICAN ITSELF.

The main detractors emphasize the “sins of omission”, meaning that the Pope did not get on a platform and send all his priests into the streets with signs, which certainly would have destroyed everything they could have done for both Jews, Gypsies, and ahem–priests who DID publicly denounce the monsters. This is why Oskar Schindler publicly and loudly proclaimed his loyalty and membership in the Nazi Party.

Oh yeah, wait a minute, he and his supposed anti-semitic aide DID denounce the Nazis, who called him a “Jew-lover”.

Contrast this record with Oskar Schindler’s. Mr. Schindler, properly noted as a “righteous Gentile” in Israel with all the honors, kept his mouth shut tight about his true intentions, much more so than any Catholic. And yet these same historical revisionists do not go after him for his manufacture of munitions for the Nazi war machine, because he used them to work against that machine, just as many Roman Catholic operatives smuggled Jews to safety in defiance of German authorities.

We get a glimpse of the true perspective of this author with his postiive reference to Liberation Theology, which was a trick used to get Catholics on the socialist bandwagon, and to get the poor to smoke Karl Marx’s opiate of the people. Like Ernesto Cardenal in Nicaragua, brought into the Sandinista cabinet but kept powerless by the Communist dictator Daniel Ortega. And don’t forget that biggest of Sandinista heros, Comandante Zero, Eden Pastora, who quit the government in disgust after the true masters had to expose themselves to start his own movement against them.

And the poor in Nicaragua are worse off than ever, and would rather live in Honduras today.
