Pay up, Bishop Williamson

A German court has ruled that Catholic Bishop Richard Williamson, a member of the an ultra-traditionalist Catholic splinter group Society of Saint Pius X (SSPX), has to pay a 12,000 Euros ($16,822) fine for incitement.

Calling into question Pope Benedict XVI’s decision to lift his excommunication and that of three other Lefebvrite bishops, Williamson denied in a televised interview that the Holocaust occurred. The interview was conducted near Regensburg [See the video] shortly before the excommunications were lifted.

He has two weeks to appeal and apparently will, even as the Vatican carries forward unification talks with SSPX.

For shame, sir.
