Welcome back, denialist bishop…

Just the other day, the Pope welcomed back a group of dissident bishops (apparently some breakaway bunch known as SSPX – Damian Thompson seems quite exercised about it over at Holy Smoke) back to the fold of the Catholic Church.  The big fuss is being made because of the ghastly views of one of these bishops, Richard Williamson.  Here’s a recent video from YouTube.

I suppose if you’re capable of denying reality in favour of bearded sky dudes and other superstitious nonsense, you can delude yourself from the reality of 20th century history and the appalling crimes of Hitler and his cronies.

Wikipedia has a page on Richard Williamson.

    Damian Thompson’s been blogging that Williamson has cancer, but has subsequently amended the story to say that that he hasn’t got cancer.

    I’m relatively disinterested, as I don’t know the guy. I mean, I’m unhappy that anyone gets stuff like that, and despite the fact I dislike his religion and his version of history, I wouldn’t wish it on him.
