Forget Bishop Richard Williamson. Now Pope Benedict XVI and the Catholic Church have Bishop Dadeus Grings to worry about. On Friday, Grings, the archbishop of Porto Alegre, said “more Catholics than Jews have died in the Holocaust, but this is not usually told because Jews own the world’s propaganda.”
According to JTA, this opinion appeared in the Brazilian trade magazine Press & Advertising. Grings added:
“How many millions of Catholics were victims of the Holocaust? Twenty-two million? The Jews say they were the major victims but the major victims were the Gypsies, who were exterminated. And they don’t mention this.”
This was no first-time offense for Grings. I found this article from 2003.
