This. Is. Rich.

Yeah, Rev. Raniero Cantalamessa, being attacked for covering up sexual abuse by your subordinates, something the Church actually did is totally like attacking all Jews for something none of them did.

You know what's a lot like anti-Semitism? Anti-Semitism.

What Cantalamessa is actually saying is that the "more shameful aspects of anti-Semitism" are only as bad as outrage regarding a now well documented cover-up, which sort of makes him a Holocaust denier.

But to be fair, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion was hatched by folk in Czarist Russia's intelligence services with the support of the Russian Orthodox Church-- and later recirculated by communists and fascists alike-- it only got picked up by the Catholic Church late in the game.

I'd say that if you really want to link the Catholic Church to attacking Jews for something they didn't do, try the old accusations of ritual human sacrifice, poisoning wells, being Satan's personal minions on Earth and not actually being human.
