His Lordship, the English Bishop Richard Willamson has won his appeal in a German Court against his conviction for having a personal opinion based on research of an historical event.
No, not the Battle of Hastings. Not the Bomber Command actions of WW2. Not the Boer War. Nor the Napoleonic Peninsular War. Not the sacking of Gibraltar.Not the gulags nor the Ukrainian forced starvation. Not the Irish potato famine. Nor the Katyn Forest massacre. Not the Spanish Inquisition. Not even the Armenian genocide. certainly not the expulsion of Palestinians.
It seems the only bit of world history we are not allowed to discuss, in quite a few countries, is the alleged "holocaust of six million Jews" (not even the number of Catholic Poles or Russian PoWs who died in German captivity).
What this does show is that given a punchy defence, standing up to the courts, victory is possible.
Congratulations to Bishop Williamson. As we go through Lent towards Easter, might those who still hide away "for fear of the Jews" as did the Apostles following the Crucifixion (the more times change, the more they stay the same) get out and start defending 'Europe and the Faith' from the anti-Christian hordes who seek to drag us and our Christian heritage down.
