For the 12th Day Before Christmas, religion gave to me...
Vatican Defends Status of WWII Pope
So, the catholic church wanted to start the beatification process for Pius XII. Who was that guy? He was the Pope during WWII, the same who was in very good terms with Hitler.
According to the catholic church "the beatification process evaluated the “Christian life” of Pius, who reigned from 1939 to 1958, and not “the historical impact of all his operative decisions."
So, you may see nothing wrong in rounding and killing jews and still be chosen as a model of "Christian Life".
That pretty much sums it up.
Some Jewish leaders protested, but the catholic church declared that this decision “is in no way to be read as a hostile act towards the Jewish people, and it is to be hoped that it will not be considered as an obstacle on the path of dialogue between Judaism and the Catholic Church.”
I beg to differ. I see this as a hostile act towards human intelligence. There are many other dead Popes, why this one? It was a dark spot in the Vatican's history and it would have been wrong to blame the whole church for this pope's action. But to give him beatitude status?
Unbelievable. But that's what faith is about, right? To believe the unbelievable, even when it is also nonsensical, undemocratic and stupid.
So, these were your 12 days before Christmas. I hope you enjoyed them. It will be Christmas in an hour (most of the world already has Christmas). But remember, if you celebrate Christmas, you ought to know the real origins.
