Head of SSPX Calls on Williamson to Correct Nonsense

from SPIEGEL ONLINE - News - International

Bishop Bernard Fellay, head of the Society of Saint Pius X, told SPIEGEL that Bishop Richard Williamson's comments denying the scale of the Holocaust were "nonsense" and said he had told him to retract them.

Bishop Bernard Fellay, the head of the ultra-conservative Society of Saint Pius X (SSPX), has apologized for the comments made by Bishop Richard Williamson denying the scale of the Holocaust and said he had asked Williamson to retract "this nonsense."

Fellay, superior general of the society since 1994, told SPIEGEL in written answers to questions that he had dismissed Williamson from his position as director of the La Reja Seminary outside Buenos Aires, the Argentinian capital, on Jan. 31, nine days before the dismissal was reported by an Argentinian news agency.

Williamson had made his comments denying the scale of the Holocaust in an interview with Swedish television broadcast in January. "As soon as I saw this interview I told him to correct this nonsense," Fellay said. "The sooner, the better."
