The holocaust of the Armenians are deliberately ignored and denied while the holocaust of our Jewish brothers are publicized and exaggerated.

On top of it they don’t even give us the full story, they only give us the deep twisted side. they don’t bother to put some reasoning behind hitlers decisions besides his mental illnesses. There has been a handfull of genocides in this worlds history, what makes this one so important? We didn’t pay attention to the armenian genocide! WTF? there is so much wrong in this world,just the other day i was driving down the street and i seen this little kid getting beat up by like 10 other kids, and the two adults in s=charge just sat there and held a conversation… not helping.. this world is fucked, you are all fucked… and worthless.

Several readers have made that comment on this and other posts about Williamson. This makes it seem like interviewees are marionettes and interviewers simply pull the strings. I can’t count how many times I have asked a question and the interviewee did not answer it. We’ve all seen this many times on TV when a politician is asked a tough question. Williamson is an educated man and he chose to say what he did.

I also agree that he is not a holocaust denier for the reasons you have mentioned. However, I beg to disagree with Bishop’s Williamson’s position on the Vatican II Council. I understand that this would be a lengthy debate and it will took time for the SSPX to be convinced of the Vatican II teachings. But remember this, both of us believes on the Papal Infallibility ex cathedra and the Pope will never err when it comes to faith and morals. That is why, no less than Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre signed the document. There may be lapses on the implementation of the Vatican II that cause his dismay but the teachings therein are not contrary to scriptures. It never reversed the Council of Trent and other councils. I hope the SSPX and the Vatican will start the dialogue immediately to heal the wounds of the past.

Bishop Williamson’s so called “denial” of the holacost… I have been with the Society of SPX for nearly twenty years and would like to say why maybe Bishop Williamson may consider the main stream opinion on the matter to be incorrect. To my knowledge he learned that beside the possible number of six million jews being killed there were also a number of catholocs killed as well. Many, many priests and religous. A number which swelled to somewhere in the neighborhood of 11 or so million. I am sure that as he started to uncover so many proofs of this[which by the way you will not find in history books]he probably started to lean more against the common tide of thinking as far as how and how many jews were killed. May I bring to a respectful reminder of one catholic priest in particular,St. Maximillan Kolbe. Maybe Bishop Williamson’s views are different but he is the only one whom I have ever heard stand up for all the catholic lives lost during that time. Lives we never hear about. Why? Because the jews have made the horror of those years a jewish matter. It’s not a jewish matter. It was a matter of hell on earth for many. Not just jews! May they rest in peace. I have never heard him deny the holacost. As for the character of H. E. Bishop Williamson, I say bravo and first class!!! He has my prayers and support and I agree 100% on his stance against Vatican ll.

This is probably the problem. That question has been asked in the interview of Bishop Williamson whether or not he is an Anti-Semite. According to him, this is not a matter of Anti-Semitism but a matter of truth. That was his intention. I would like to reiterate that we must not impute to him an intent which he never intended. He may not be 100% accurate but neither he is 100% inaccurate. If our definition of anti semitism is that Jews and other people doesn’t like his statements on questioning the historical truth of gas chamber and 6 million Jews which is equivalent to the population of one city, then I’m sorry to say that I will not buy to that definition.

On the other hand, it was not his fault if he made those statements. It was the fault of the interviewer for having asked that question to which he gave an answer the basis of which is based on what he has read from sources whom he consider as competent authority. And he further said on that interview that he is willing to change his contention if there is a contradictory evidence to the same. Media should have noted that! And that’s what he is doing now, making some research whether it is proper for him to reverse his statements. That is his clear intention

It’s also worth noting that the book he says he studied to find out the truth about the Holocaust is the Leuchter Report, the main reference book for Holocaust deniers that concluded there were no gas chambers. Sure, it’s theoretically possible that Williamson was just a history buff, but there is a documented record of anti-Semitism in the SSPX that cannot be overlooked.

Williamson has just told Der Spiegel that he has ordered a book by Jean-Claude Pressac on the gas chambers and will study that before deciding whether to recant publicly, as demanded by the Vatican. He doesn’t mention it, but that 1989 book is a detailed refutation of the Leuchter Report by a former Holocaust denier who later worked with French Nazi hunters Serge and Beate Klarsfeld to combat Leuchter and his followers. Pressac’s book is known among people who’re interested in these issues and Leuchter even wrote a book refuting Pressac. If Williamson was really searching so much for the truth about the Holocaust, why is he only now getting around to reading the main book refuting the Leuchter Report?

Admittedly, these elements do not prove Williamson denied the Holocaust because he is an anti-Semite. But the circumstantial evidence pointing in that direction is a bit too strong for an outside observer to argue that he was simply searching for the truth and everybody should accept that statement at face value.

Typical words of supporters and perpetrators of any kind of violence(not only fisical violence)along history and actual world situation.
Well hope Bishop Williamson do what Pope suggest to do as soon as possible. More true actions than empty words.
