Re-excommunicate Williamson, German bishops demand
Holocaust-denying Bishop Richard Williamson balked at immediately meeting the pope’s requirement that he recant.
“Since I see that there are many honest and intelligent people who think differently, I must look again at the historical evidence,” the British bishop was quoted as saying.
Germany’s Catholic bishops responded by calling for his re-excommunication.
“Mr. Williamson is impossible and irresponsible,” said Archbishop Robert Zollitsch, chairman of the German Bishops’ Conference in an article published Saturday. “I now see no room for him in the Catholic Church.”
The German tabloid press was even less oblique in its statements and characterized Williamson as dishonest in a variety of ways.
Williamson is “holed up in the seminary he runs in Argentina,” and isn’t talking to reporters.
