BBC NEWS | Europe | Pope Mass ahead of Auschwitz trip

BBC NEWS Europe Pope Mass ahead of Auschwitz trip: "Some Jewish groups have said a German Pope speaking the language of the Nazis would insult the memory of the million Jews murdered there. "

Just two things . . .

"Some Jewish groups have said a German Pope speaking the language of the Nazis would insult the memory of the million Jews murdered there. "

That just sounds like bullshit. It's why liberalism fails - no one wants to even think that their feelings might get hurt. Kinda like getting thrown out of school for using the word 'gun' in a sentence due to 'Zero Tolerance.'

Second, no one addresses the irony of a former Hitler Youth being the pope, much less his visiting the world infamous death camp.
(The article said that the trip was added to his tour last minute - maybe he left his pocketwatch in a desk somewhere . . . )
