The Role of the Catholic Church in the Holocaust
and its Unfulfilled Duty of Repair.
By Ronald J. Rychlak
This entire site is an embarrassing collage of Catholic propaganda.
It seems devoted to putting some of the church's more shameful acts "in context." In addition to this one on the Holocaust, there is the one you cited on the Spanish Inquisition actually benefitting Europe because the "secular persecution of heretics," whatever that might mean, was even worse. And I love this headline:
"A Necessary Bondage? When The Church Endorsed Slavery. T. David Curp looks at a dark period in church history and explains the context around it."
The "12 Myths" are rather amusing as well, both in their presence at the forefront of this source and in their content. I particularly like myths 2, 3, 6, 8, and all of them, I guess, when put "in the context" of calling them myths that this site can supposedly debunk.
Crisis Magazine is an embarrassment and is only going to be a disservice if you attempt to use it to persuade others.
