Britain's Catholic bishops denounce anti-Semitism

Times Online

Senior bishops from the Roman Catholic Church have joined the Pope in condemning anti-Semitism and described the views of a bishop whose excommunication was lifted by the Pope as “unacceptable”.


The Catholic bishops of England and Wales described the views of Bishop Richard Williamson of the Society of St Pius X as “totally unacceptable”.

Bishop Williamson was one of four bishops to have his excommunication lifted by Pope Benedict XVI on Saturday, just days after Swedish television broadcast an interview with him where he said: “There were no gas chambers” and claimed that a mere few hundred thousand rather than six million Jewish people died in the Holocaust.”
