Subject: Catholic Hypocrisy
S> Let's see some opinions. Waldheim knighted for "safeguarding human rights." Agree or disagree?<
Jab> Totally sick, but why are you surprised? The [Roman] Catholic Church does weird, hypocritical things all the time. I would think a knighthood from them would be a curse. But that's just me. <grin><
Not only just you. According to CODESH:
In France Cardinal Jean-Marie Lustiger, [Roman] Catholic archbishop of Paris, signed a decree opening a formal Vatican inquiry into the possible beatification of Jacques Fesch.
Fesch was a convicted cop killer who was executed in 1959 during a botched holdup. Fesch was from a wealthy family and, when daddy didn't give him the money he wanted to buy a yacht, Fesch stole a pistol on Febuary 25, 1954, pistol-whipped a teller and took the money at a place near the Paris Stock Exchange.
During his attempted escape he shot a cop through the heart and was arrested and controlled "moments later in a subway station."
Like most criminals who recognize that Christians have special rights, he claimed to "find a Christian god" -
- it didn't work; he was executed five years later.
The act of granting false states of grace and sainthood to this clown comes as no surprised when placed into the context of history.
