Victims or Persecutors?

I was amazed at the amount of Catholics who wrote into The Jerusalem Post claiming that the Catholics were also Nazi victims in response to an article about an anti-Semitic Holocaust denying Polish bishop called Tadeusz Pieronek. This is the same lie as that contemptible chain-email about remembering the six million Jews and the 10 million Xtians and 1,900 Catholic priests that I wrote about here.

In fact, most of Hitler's aids including Heinrich Himmler, Josef Goebbels, Reinhard Heydrich, Rudolf Hoess, Julius Streicher, Fritz Thyssen, Klaus Barbie, and Franz Von Papen were all practicing Catholics. Most of the SS who ran the death camps were practicing Catholics.

Just do a Google for "Catholic Nazi" and see all the photos of Catholic priests in Nazi salutes. Catholics were victims like the Jews? Disgusting, obscene! They were the major persecutors!

Catholic priests accompanied the german troops

There were of course many Catholics who risked their lives and were murdered by the Nazis for trying to hide Jews. These were the exception though. They did not do this because of their Catholic faith but despite it.
