Father Fruitcake No Longer Excommunicated
We talked a month or so ago about nutbar extraordinaire Richard Williamson, who combines 9-11 Truth and Holocaust Denial with a leadership position in a schismatic offshoot of Roman Catholicism. Turns out Bishop Batcrap is now back in the good graces of the Holy See, although it remains to be seen if he will be affirmed by the pope as a Bish.
Among the men reinstated Saturday was Richard Williamson, a British-born cleric who in an interview last week said he did not believe that six million Jews died in the Nazi gas chambers. He has also given interviews saying that the United States government staged the Sept. 11 attacks as a pretext to invade Afghanistan.
I'm inclined to cut the pope a little slack for now. All the removal of the excommunication sentence means is that Monsignor Moonbat is not condemned to dance in the flames for eternity. Yet.
But you know, if there really was a Spectre around to dish out ironic punishment, isn't it obvious that Priest Paranoid would be taken back to WTC-1 on the morning of 9-11 and given the good news that the government was not going to do a controlled demolition of the building? Or to Auschwitz in 1944?
What a slimeball.
