The article can be found here

Pope Benedict, whom I will proceed to refer to with the affectionate phrase "Ratzi the Nazi", has seen it fit to lift the 1988 excommunication on four bishops appointed without papal consent by the notorious far-right renegade archbishop Lefebvre. Lefebvre revolted against church renewal in the '60s, including the adoption of mass in the vernacular tongue rather than Latin. He was also a notable opponent of oecumenization and religious freedom (subscribing to pragmatic tolerance instead).

During WWII, he supported the collaborationist Vichy regime. He also expressed support for the regimes of Pinochet and Videla, and noted his approval of the Franco and Salazar regimes in Spain and Portugal. In 1985, he endorsed Jean-Marie Le Pen, the anti-Semitic far-right presidential candidate in France for many elections past, in the French periodical Présent. About Muslim immigration he had this to say:
"It is your wives, your daughters, your children who will be kidnapped
and dragged off to a certain kind of places as they exist in Casablanca" (source).

One of the four bishops, Richard Williamson, appeared on Swedish state television this week saying that historical evidence "is hugely against 6 million Jews having been deliberately gassed."

The Vatican responded by saying this will have no influence on the decision to rehabilitate him.

The pope must be out of his mind. A German should know better, what a disgrace. I saw that interview on YouTube and it's revolting.

Okay, the pope changed his mind. Apparently, the interview with the Swedish TV is brandnew and the Vatican did not know about that...

Not only does the Pop have a YouTube channel now, he's also looking into Facebook.

Sorry, I didn't know that. The Nazis committed a lot of crazy crimes no one would ever think of these days.

Yesterday, the Archbishop of Vienna protested the Vatican's actions regarding Williamson. Less than 24 hours later, an ultra-reactionary has been appointed his assistant (you might remember him; he was the one warning you against the Harry Potter-books). Coincidence? I call it censorship.

In terms of censorship that makes me think that at least no Dutch court will file charges against you for hate language and insulting a religion because you call the pope "Ratzi the Nazi" and no Catholic fanatic will stab you to death in the street (hopefully). That must count for something :)

From what I've read on a magazine article, the Vatican *did* know about the interview, and all they did was post a note on their newspaper against what the bishop said.
