Croatian Jewish representatives expressed outrage after the culture minister praised a film claiming the number of people killed by the country’s pro-Nazi WWII regime at the Jasenovac concentration camp was exaggerated. 

Writes:Sven Milekić (Balkaninsigh)

Claims that Jasenovac was not really a concentration camp, raised in a new documentary that was screened in Zagreb on Monday evening, have angered representatives of the country’s Jewish community.

The controversy over the canonization of Pope Pius XII concerns whetherhe spoke out enough against the slaughter of Jews during World War II.But that question is a red herring when trying to grasp the big pictureof the Vatican’s role during the war.

The execrable behavior of the Catholic Church during World War II

I won’t dwell on this for long, but though I’d call to your attention this new article in The Atlantic about the behavior of the Catholic Church during World War II. It concentrates, though, on the story of how two Jewish children whose parents died in Auschwitz were forcibly baptized by the Church, which, under canon law, then refused to return the children to their Jewish relatives.

Two months into the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the Russian Orthodox Church has not missed a single occasion to claim that the Vatican stands by its side in the situation in Ukraine. While Vatican diplomacy and Pope Francis try to choose their words and symbolism to navigate a war that they seem to interpret as outcome of a geopolitical conflict of interests between Russia and the United States, the Moscow Patriarchate has been unwavering in its resolve to present the Vatican as an ally and ignore evidence to the contrary.

Why have you turned a deaf ear to the Lawsuit and kept your mouths shut although the three most recent Popes admitted to almost all the crimes committed by the Roman Catholic Church?!

An open letter with a question to international and domestic institutions whose fight and care for human rights are the grounds for their existence and work: 

“Since when are morals, ethics and justice, on which the fight for inalienable human rights, especially childrenˈs, is based, not important to you?”

New Zealand’s Catholic church admits 14% of clergy have been accused of abuse since 1950

New Zealand’s Catholic church has admitted that 14% of its diocesan clergy have been accused of abusing children and adults since 1950.

The church released the figures at the request of the royal commission on abuse in care, set up in 2018 by prime minister Jacinda Ardern, who said the country needed to confront “a dark chapter” in its history, and later expanded it to include churches and other faith-based institutions.

It’s hard out here for a pope. See, when it comes to religious history, the list of Catholic Church transgressions makes for pretty uncomfortable reading. Despite exalting virtue and kindness in its teaching, church leadership has spearheaded a long history of outright unforgivable Catholic actions.

You might remember some of these improprieties from school – the Inquisition, Joan of Arc, and the trial of Galileo should all ring a bell. But not everything here is medieval. Though Vatican violence goes way back, a number of disturbing episodes are from recent history. Some of this repugnant behavior comes from popes, some was church-endorsed, and some, most unsettlingly, was just straight-up regular church practice.

I want to start off by saying I dont think just because you are catholic or a priest you’re a bad person I’m more talking about the history, principles and actions taken by the catholic church from its conception to now. I will also cede that some good has come out of it although I think the bad heavily outweighs it.

I’ll briefly touch on the pedophilia that is rampant is the catholic church although this is a widely known fact but a less widely known fact is the fact that Pope Francis and some of the highest cardinals were directly implicit in signing and creating documents saying any priests who would admit or talked about that they sexually abused a minor before 10 years after the incident occurred would be excommunicated.
