Fantastic article portraying a true hero!

Keep up the great work in getting the truth out to a revisionist-loving world.

(Before anyone objects, of course I don't mean YOU)

Selwyn Duke is to be commended for shining the light of Truth on the atrocious lies of the Western Left.

Michael Savage has also vindicated the legacy of this giant of a man on his radio program on a frequent (no pun intended) basis.

Prior to Dr. Savage, Selwyn Duke and Mr. & Mrs. Krupp, I had no idea that this great man saved so many lives from savage brutality. And I even graduated from a Catholic High School!

The Vatican archives have not been open so we don't know the full story. As for Michael Savage, he doesn't have much connection to Judaism, although born Jewish. He identifies much more with Christianity.

Is the Roman Pontiff the hand of God? The criticism by Jews, and the left is nonscence, and it's psychology should be examined; are Jews, and the left saying that the Papacy is a institution of Judaism? Those that embrace him on the right, do not adhere to an anti-Catholic stance.

Is that why in July, 1933, Pope Pius XII, signed a Concordat with his faithful Roman Catholic Adolf Hitler?

Not only that, but years ago, I seen an old B/W film on TV of Hitler signing that Concordat with Pope Pius XII in Vatican Square, and hundreds, maybe thousands of faithful Roman Catholics (including Nuns & Priests) filled the whole Vatican Square etc, with their right hands in the air heiling Hitler!!!

Also,

5. A Woman Rides the Beast:
The Roman Catholic Church and the Last Days by Dave Hunt (book & DVD) has much to say about Pope Pius XII.

And, I am a True Conservative & a True Christian who believes God's WORD (Jesus in John 1:1-3) when it describes the Roman Catholic Church in Revelation 17:1-19:3.

Reichs Condordat of July 20, 1933

Article 1 "The German Reich guarantees freedom of profession and public practice of the Catholic religion.

It acknowledges the right of the Catholic Church, within the limit of those laws which are applicable to all, to manage and regulate her own affairs independently, and, within the framework of her own competence, to publish laws and ordinances binding on her members."

Article 14 " Catholic clerics who hold an ecclesiastical office in Germany or who exercise pastoral or educational functions must: (a) be German citizens (b) matriculated from a German secondary school (c) studied philosphy and theology for at least three years at a German State University, German ecclesiastical college, or a papal college in Rome."

Article 16 "Before God and on the Holy Gospels I swear and promise as becomes a bishop, loyalty to the German Reich and to the State of . . . I swear and promise to honor the legally constituted Government and to cause the clergy of my diocese to honor it. In the performance of my spiritual office and in my solicitude for the welfare and the interests of the German Reich, I will endeavor to avoid all detrimental acts which might endanger it."

It was not unusual for countries back then, nor now, to place limitations on churches. Respecting the governmental laws of a country and not making any attempts to overthrow the government is not embracing said governments laws as the gospel, but rather respecting established laws.

Not one Biblical Truth, Catholic Docrine or Canon Law was affected by this agreement because.. "Render unto Caesar"...and all that.

Here in the U.S., we have our own similar laws: "June 28, 1940 The Alien Registration Act (the Smith Act) passed by the US Congress requires aliens to register and be fingerprinted. The Act makes it illegal to advocate the overthrow of the US government."

1st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." aka "Separation of church and state" - thanks to Thomas Jefferson

We have the right to this separation, but won't allow Germany to have the same?

The Reichs Concordat was signed 6 years before the beginning of WWII. Attempts to twist this concordat into something it is not for the sake of sustaining one's biases, falls tremendously short of the actual truth. The Germans broke this concordat once the holocaust was in full swing and many Catholic religious died under the onslaught of this evil. When Pius spoke out, Catholics were punished, or worse.

"U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt, on September 5, 1939, proclaimed the U.S.' neutrality to the evil being wrought upon the Jews. Twelve days later, American aviation hero Charles A. Lindbergh makes his first anti-intervention radio speech. The U.S. non-intervention movement was supported not just by Lindbergh, but by former president Herbert Hoover, Theodore Roosevelt Jr., Henry Ford and a number of senators and congressmen as well."

"On September 1, 1939, Nazi tanks crossed the Polish border. This was the beginning of World War II. In his encyclical, Summi Pontificatus (October 27, 1939), Pius XII condemned Hitler's actions."

"Pope Pius XII invited Jews and other refugees to join the Vatican Palatine Guards. In a few months, their number increased from four hundred to four thousand."

Canada declared war on Germany on September 10, 1939, long before the U.S.. The U.S. declared war on Japan on December 8, 1941, one day after what Roosevelt would call "a date that will live in infamy"; the December 7th attack on Pearl Harbor. Roosevelt finally opened his eyes but it was not until three days after declaring war on Japan that he finally declares war on Germany (and Italy) - December 11, 1941, over two years after the holocaust began!

Imagine! Two giant power nations wait two years to declare war and yet people blame the military-less Catholic Church for not doing enough? Saving 860,000 Jews is more than all the other nations, religions, individuals combined, and yet, for biased folks, it is not enough! Perhaps these accusers should take a long look in the mirror and ask themselves why they would rather believe the lies about Pope Pius XII over the historic truth of his heroics.

I think you might find that the bigotry you hold onto is the same bigotry that fueled the hatred Hitler held in his heart for the Jews.

"Rabbi Zolli is the most important non-Catholic witness to the role of Pius XII in wartime Italy during the Nazi occupation and persecution of Jews. A biblical scholar whose courage and integrity cannot be challenged, Zolli, his wife and his twenty-year-old daughter Miriam, were each hidden my different members of the Roman resistance party Giustizia e Libertà."

"On July 23, 1944 Rabbi Zolli addressed the Jewish Community in the Synagogue and publicly thanked the Holy Father for all he did to save the Jewish Community of Rome. His talk was transmitted by radio." Doesn't sound like a rejection from the Jewish community to me.

"When he [Pope Pius XII] died in 1958, the Jewish communities of Europe praised him for his help and expressed sorrow and gratitude for his solicitude during the Holocaust."

I hate writing all this, folks, but your blindness to truth appalls me.

Daryl, You've made many false accusations which reek of outhouse odor.

Pius XI was pope at the time the Reich Concordat was signed, not Cardinal Eugenio Pacelli, who would later become Pope Pius XII.

Neither Hitler nor Pius XI or Pius XII signed the concordat. The German signature on the concordat was of the Vice-Chancellor of the German Reich, Herr Franz von Papen and Cardinal Eugenio Pacelli.

As far as that old b&w movie, if you still believe fictional movies are truth, I have some swamp-land in the desert to unload...

Books, movies, dvd's-Cornwell, Aarons, Loftus, Hunt-All that's missing from this motley crew is your Jack Chick comic book collection.

Revelation is a hard book and should not be interpreted by someone with a closed mind. Many scholars have come to understand that Babylon refers to the pagan city of Rome, which persecuted the early Christians for three hundred years. But I don't expect you to understand this, considering your willingness to be deceived. The hate you harbor is not of God, so ask yourself who it is that the Bible tells us feeds off hatred. (Hitler fed off hatred, too)

If you believe God's word, then you must see yourself in 2Tim.4:3-4 :::tickle-tickle:::
