Papa Naci u Hitlerovoj mladeži?! Ma, nikad! Otkud vam to?
Papa Naci svoj je nadimak dobio ponajmanje zbog toga što je navodno bio prisilni član Hitlerove Mladeži (sami odlučite na što se odnosi ovo “navodno” :twisted:). Da je bio njihov član, nebrojeno puta je i sam ustvrdio, naglašavajući da je to članstvo bilo prisilno. E, ali otići u “Svetu zemlju” (to je ona gdje svako malo masovno ubijaju civile) sa stigmom Hitlerjugendića nije baš zgodno, pa je Nacijev glasnogovornik ponudio ponešto izmijenjenu verziju:
Even though the 82-year-old German pontiff has admitted in numerous interviews that he was drafted unwillingly into the Nazi youth movement towards the end of the war, his spokesman came up with another version.
“The Pope was never in the Hitler Youth, never, never, never,” Father Federico Lombardi, chief spokesman for the Pope, told a press conference in Jerusalem.
Father Lombardi said the Pope had served in the anti-aircraft artillery corps but this did not mean that he was a member of the Hitler Youth.
He seemed to be trying to draw a distinction between pro-Nazi Germans who volunteered for the Hitler Youth and young men who were forced to join the anti-aircraft unit but who, he claimed, were not necessarily in the Hitler Youth.
But the pontiff’s spokesman’s comments contradict statements the pope, himself, has made, admitting that he was a member of the Hitler Youth.
In the 1996 book “Salt of the Earth”, the Pope told Peter Seewald, a German journalist: “At first we weren’t, but when the compulsory Hitler Youth was introduced in 1941, my brother was obliged to join. I was still too young, but later, as a seminarian, I was registered in the HY. As soon as I was out of the seminary I never went back.”
Father Lombardi’s comments came in response to a fairly chill response in Israel to the Pope’s choice of language over the Holocaust during the first day of his trip to Israel.
Reuven Rivlin, the Israeli parliamentary speaker, said the Pope should have acknowledged his role as a member of the German armed forces.
“He came and told us as if he were a historian, someone looking in from the sidelines, about things that should not have happened,” Mr Rivlin said. “He was a part of them.”
Moram priznati da ne znam kakvo objašnjenje ponuditi… Toliko su nas ispilali da je to članstvo bilo prisilno (unatoč očito srodnim stavovima pape Nacija i navedenog pokreta), e da bi sada svećenik koji igra ulogu njegovog glasnogovornika otvoreno (s)lagao o toj priči, kontradiktirajući samom svom šefu! Baš me zanima kakve ćemo maštovite interpretacije rečenog čuti ovih dana. Crkva ipak Zna Znanje kad treba opravdavati laganje, ne? 😉
Inače, čini se da Crkvi dobro ide… samo ove godine izazvali su oveće skandale: prvo ukidanje ekskomunikacije bivšem/sadašnjem svećeniku Richardu Williamsonu (link 1, link 2, link 3), a zatim i famozna izjava velikog znanstvenika Nacija o štetnosti kondoma koji povećavaju problem AIDS-a. Sve ovo samo od malog, ali velikog Vatikana. O drugim čudima, kako hrvatskog dijela famiglie, tako i svjetskih ogranaka, ionako možete manje ili više redovito čitati na ovim stranicama.
