I agree with what you wrote here, and though I'm going off topic here,  I'd like to point out that it's not always the Catholic faith that Bp. Williamson stands up for. And for me, that's a huge problem. It's been a problem for the SSPX, too. That other thing that he stands up for is Revisionism, which is more ecumenical than specifically Catholic. It's an ecumenical movement. He spends time with non-Catholics in this endeavor. And some of these non-Catholics are certifiable nutbars. IMO.

His issues with revisionism touch on a problem which does indeed involve the Church and it's the problem with relativism.  As long as people are going to rule these discussions by raw emotionalism and hollywood versions of reality, the Church and souls are in danger, because that's what the Church is; the Church is real and true.

If we're going to judge the truth according to people's emotional responses to things, I can think of no other course we could be on than to Hell itself.

How so? The response definitely involved a lot of emotion, probably too much, but revisionism has nothing to do with relativism. One is a matter of history and one is a matter of theology.

History is concerned with the Truth, and if the case of those who are opposed to discussing the "Shoa" is so certain, then why are they all so eager to cast anyone who questions it in the worst possible lght, as if they were the devil incarnate?

When you say relativism are you talking about religious indifferentism and moral relativism? If so I don't see what the Holocaust has to do with any of that.
