Looks Like the Rumors Were True

CNS has the report on the SSPX excoms being lifted. We've come a long way, I suppose. Twenty years of polemic has to go somewhere. From the looks of things, they are still suspended are far from any sort of canonical regularity.

Of course, the mainstream media, ever the Church's friend, has chosen to report the matter this way:

Pope lifts excommunications of 4 bishops, including bishop who denied the Holocaust

So Bishop Williamson winds up being the focus of the whole story. That whole story being mostly fabricated, by the way. I am willing to listen to anyone's correction here, but all I've ever heard Williamson deny is that the number of Jews killed was as high as 6 million and that the executions that did take place were carried out in gas chambers.

If you want to gripe about his seeing Freemasons around every corner or the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, go ahead. Telling lies about the guy really isn't necessary.
