Catholics & Nazis

The Catholic Church is not all bad. While the Catholic Church has been accused of encouraging antisemitism, prominent members of the Jewish community have contradicted these criticisms. Still other Jewish historians found that the Catholic Church gave millions of dollars to assist Jews during World War II.

Historian John Toland noted:

The Church, under the Pope’s guidance... saved the lives of more Jews than all other churches, religious institutions and rescue organizations combined.

A set of magnificent, inspiring, and noble actions: a sparkling reminder of how people ought to behave. A sword and shield set upon the dark dragon of genocide and persecution. While tempting to note that such rare gems are found in a river of filth, corruption, dishonesty, temporal waste, and moral decrepitude, let us refrain.

A good deed is a good deed and truly stands alone.
