Da poop

All hail the Poop... err pope.


Well by now there is no secret I have no use for most of not all organized religion. This particular one is the last remaining vestige of the Holy Roman Empire. For those who don't read history there was a time when the pope was the supreme leader of the known world and if you didn't agree with him or the current dicta then you ran the risk of a miserable life assuming you retained it. It never fails to disgust me when I read about WWII and the German war atrocities in particular their acts of genocide against 6 million people yet apparently the Pope at that time was ok with it or chose to not look. No respect for that seat.

The 6 Million that died, the Jews, gypsies, the infirm and handicapped, homosexuals, and anyone likely that annoyed the local gestapo all suffered.
For those that died, were tortured, enslaved and maltreated nothing can make up for not raising a voice against it. Human history and dignity demand that whose that did that and those that have done other despicable acts in recent times be stopped and their acts of grave sickness be spoken out loud.

It's crime, it's time at least recognize it has happened, is happening still that not doing something to stop it or speaking out against it is the worse crime. The first step is to see the act and say stop it.

We have words and they are often the only bullets we have they still have a target.

Lock, load and come out loud.

Oh, Keep your heads down.

Actually, when you add in everyone else who went through the extermination camps, you're probably closer to 10-12 million. Jews were the majority of the dead, but not by much.

EBM,

I can say I've never heard a definitive number save for 6 million is often repeated and even then it is in the form of "at least 6 million". The true magnitude of the horror is that we can never have an accounting. No doubt the collective scream needs to resonate in new ears as never to be allowed again.

Maybe the officer was right, take pictures, record this, no one will believe it.


Eck!
