New Nails Pt 5769

The more things change dept. This doesn't surprise or shock, it's just more piles of shit. I don't regard the Pope as a "friend". Remember:

Almost every year, Israel's two chief rabbis travel to the Vatican in order to convince the pope to return all the Jewish original writings and the Temple Menorah. Until today, the Vatican possess the greatest Jewish library in the world and especially during the Middle Ages, the church stole (or took) many Jewish original writings. The Rambam (Maimonides) may be the most famous case. When the Romans plundered the Second Temple after its destruction, they obviously took the Menorah to Rome. The question is "Where is the Menorah today?" And many people say: "In the Vatican".

But occasionally I manage to work up a spark of outrage anyhow, over the fuckupness of these shits:

"Among the men reinstated Saturday was Richard Williamson, a British-born cleric who in an interview last week said he did not believe that six million Jews died in the Nazi gas chambers. He has also given interviews saying that the United States government staged the Sept. 11 attacks as a pretext to invade Afghanistan."

NYT full article.

I know, it would be preferable to resort to snark here, like, "Williamson also believes that Paul is Dead and has accused Brian Wilson of hiding the real tapes for Smile" but the evil compounded stuns me into sobriety.

"There was once a special book
It got changed by facist crooks "
