I can't believe what I'm reading here and elsewhere. After having seen the headlines of a few british newspapers, I was shocked. Two things:
- It's not like people really had a choice
- Get over it for christ's sake
Trust me, I'm not a racist, neither do I support any Nazi ideology, but I think that more than 60 years after the fall of the Hitler regime, it's time that people finally stop whining about it.
I know many people that have been in the HJ (Hitler-Jugend), and all of them said, that back then, it was the right thing to do. I know it's a bit harsh, but compare it to somebody *cough*Bush*cough*
saying you're either with us or against us. If you're with us, good. If you're against us, you gotta die. The only difference is, that Hitler had no problem sending German resistors to the gas chamber.
Therefore, I don't think it's fair calling the new pope a Nazi. He was 16 at the time, and he's 78 now. For Christ's sake, give the man a break. Thank you.
