German trial of Holocaust-denying bishop set for July
Mar 23, 2011, 11:25 GMT


Regensburg, Germany - The German trial of British Bishop Richard Williamson over his denial of the extent of the Holocaust is to restart in July, after an eight-month postponement, the court in the southern city of Regensburg announced Wednesday.

Williamson, of the ultra-orthodox Catholic Society of St Pius X (SSPX), denied in a television interview last year that the Nazis had systematically murdered millions of Jews.

The interview, for a Swedish television channel, took place in Germany, where Holocaust denial is a criminal offence.

Williamson was fined 10,000 euros (14,200 dollars) over his remarks but the bishop and prosecutors both appealed the fine.

The trial was originally scheduled for last November, but was postponed after Williamson appointed a new lawyer to represent him in court, who needed time to familiarize himself with the documents.

It will now start again on July 4.

At the time, the bishop chose a radical right-wing lawyer to represent him, but changed his mind after the SSPX order threatened to excommunicate him

You can construct several academic fields designed to discredit and destroy belief in the central, most sacred dogma of the Christian religion, the divinity of Christ, but if you want to question a historical event and the details surrounding it, even when those details were far from clear [witness the way encyclopedias jacked the numbers of supposed dead to six million as the years progressed], and you get to go to jail in National Socialist Germany today.

I was speaking generally Mr. Misquote.  People do routinely go to prison, get beaten to death or face other trials unreported because of this bullcrap.

Way to sidetrack the point.

What makes you so sure, Mr. Holocaust-Revisionism-Persecution Denier? Didn't Germar Rudolf and Ernst Zundel go to jail for precisely that?

Meanwhile, radical Muslims attend daily prayers happily in German mosques.

God bless Bishop Williamson!

And it's true.  The German government, while it has its moments, has been known to be vindictive and unjust over the years and it's always possible that they'll arbitrarily decide to throw him in da coolahhhhh just because they want to.

Hey, we thought you were guilty the first time, so we'll pursue you across the world and make your dying years hell whether you committed the crime or not.  Not even the Israeli government was stupid enough to try to throw the book at this man.
