Richard Dawkins om påvens uttalande

This statement by the pope, on his arrival in Edinburgh, is a despicable outrage. Even if Hitler had been an atheist, his political philosophy was not based upon atheism and had no connection with atheism. Hitler was arguably (and by his own account) a Roman Catholic. In any case he enjoyed the open support of many of the most senior catholic clergy in Germany and the less demonstrative support of Pope Pius XII. Even if Hitler had been an atheist (he certainly was not), the rank and file Germans who carried out the attempted extermination of the Jews were Christians, almost to a man: either Catholic or Lutheran, primed to their anti-Semitism by centuries of Catholic propaganda about ‘Christ-killers’ and by Martin Luther’s own seething hatred of the Jews. To mention Ratzinger’s membership of the Hitler Youth might be thought to be fighting dirty, but my feeling is that the gloves are off after this disgraceful paragraph by the pope.

I am incandescent with rage at the sycophantic BBC coverage, and the sight of British toadies bowing and scraping to this odious man. I thought he was bad before. This puts the lid on it.

Svagt inlägg av Dawkins. Hitler var formellt katolik, övertygelsemässigt helt ointresserad av såväl ateism som kristendom. Likso många andra i partitoppen, som de som ville ersätta bibeln med Mein Kampf m.m.

Dawkins borde ta en titt på Mit brennender Sorge.

Pius XII var emot, men vågade inte uttala sig för starkt i ämnet. Att Ratzinger var med i HJ är inte så mycket fulspel som helt irrelevant; eftersom det var obligatoriskt så hade han inget val. En proffsdebattör som Dawkins borde inte gå i den fällan.
