I think maybe you misunderstood me ... I was saying Someone1776 is a professed believing Catholic and suggesting wih sarcasm that Alaric is a idiot for suggesting such a person is really a Jew just because he doesnt oppose the accepted historical view of the holocaust.
Yes. Can't we all agree that taking sides in debates that are matters of sheer History neither prove nor disprove one's "Catholic-ness" and then discuss the topic of the thread itself? If one takes the negative view, one can take it as "the Vatican" is saying otherwise with regard to my first statement; the "give the benefit of the doubt" view could be that that sort of controversy is being deemed "off-topic" as to the SSPX talks in se, and imprudent to get into for obvious reasons.
At any rate, those who question the "orthodox Holocaust literature" need to use prudence
and to check themselves for any real
anti-Semitism; those who accept the standard view need to stop accusing people of "Holocaust denial" for having questions or for not accepting every jot and tittle of the textbook narratives. (really, what does "Holocaust denial" mean
exactly? If one believes that 5,000,000 Jews died instead of 6 million, is that "denial"? What about 3 million? What about 1 million? Where's the line? I don't think anyone believes that Jews were not persecuted and killed in WWII... And why is this matter of History surrounded with so much vehemence on all sides when people can calmly talk about who wrote the plays attributed to Shakespeare, or who was on the right side in the War Between the States, etc.? It's a little surreal, if you ask me...)
