Quote[quote]"The pope wants to know: Are biblical texts used to foment attitudes of anti-semitism?"[/quote]The Roman Empire: The Edict of Caracalla in the year 212 CE grants the Jews full citizenship. The Jews had overcome initial hostility to become full members of society. A century later Constantine become a Christian (a hotch potch of previous Pagan/Jewish myths with some new dogmatic embellishments) and persecution of the Jews begins. They are excluded from all civil and military posts, forbidden to employ Christians, or to give to them or receive from them medical aid. Jewish/Christian intermarriage is deemed adultery and a capital offence. In a lawsuit between Christians and Jews, only Christian witnesses are acceptable. Ambrose in the West and Chrysostom in the East justify all this by giving it a theological basis. Based on the absurd idea that one set of living people should be blamed for a supposed crime allegedly committed by some distant ancestors the Jews suffer centuries of discrimination at the hands of the Catholic Church. On 17 July 1555 Pope Paul IV publishes the Bull Cum nimis absurdum which is to prove a landmark in anti-Semitism. The Bull stresses that by nature the Jews are slaves and should be treated as such. For the first time they are to be confined to an area know as a ‘ghetto’. Each ‘ghetto’ has only one entrance. Jews were obliged to sell all their property at knock down prices to Christians. They are restricted in commerce to rag trading. 95% of the Synagogues in Rome are destroyed. They are already without books since Paul IV had burned them all, including the Talmud, when he was a Cardinal. They are obliged to wear a yellow hat in public. These and countless other oppressive restrictions are imposed on Jews for a mythical crime they could not have been responsible for. These oppressive measures are to be a blueprint for those adopted by another Christian army led by baptised Catholic Adolf Hitler in the twentieth century. In 1581 Gregory XIII states that the guilt of the Jews in rejecting and crucifying the ‘christ’ character only grows deeper with successive generations entailing perpetual slavery. A succession of Popes (anti-humans) reinforce these ancient prejudices against Jews. Pius VII followed by Leo XII, Pius VIII, Gregory XVI, Pius IX – all good pupils of Paul IV. Leo XII (1823-9) decided Christians were getting lax. He again locks Jews inside ghettos. He also forbade them vaccination against smallpox during an epidemic because it was ‘against the natural law’. Pius IX (1846-7 imprisons a Jew of good standing for employing an elderly Christian lady to take care of his linen. 1858 the case of Edgardo Mortara takes place. The child snatched from his parents on the basis that their illiterate Christian babysitter had secretly baptised him. In September 1870 Italian troops take Rome amid scenes of jubilation. Eleven days later on 2 October 1870 the Jews, by royal decree are granted the freedom which the Catholic Church has denied them for fifteen hundred years. The last ghetto in Europe is dismantled. The Jews rejoiced, little did they know their darkest hour was yet to come. The Catholic Church tried to eliminate the Jews by forced conversion Hitler will try by forced extermination. On July 20, 1933 the Reichskonkordat was signed by Eugenio Cardinal Pacelli and Franz von Papen on behalf of Pope Pius XI and President Paul von Hindenburg, respectively. In the Concordat, the German government, with the cooperation of Rome, achieved a complete proscription of all clerical interference in the political field (articles 16 and 32). It also ensured the bishops' loyalty to the state by an oath and required all priests to be Germans and subject to German superiors. Restrictions were also placed on all Catholic organisations.

He's so concerned about the Jews, the Orthodox, the Muslims, the Lefebvrists - why doesn't this man care for the Catholics of Rome, as whose Bishop he was elected?
