Judgment at Nuremberg

"In a national crisis, ordinary and extraordinary men can delude themselves into the commission of a heinous crime."

I listened to the Nuremberg trials today as I was doing chores. I hadn't watched the movie for years but with The ethnic cleansing of Christians and the diabolical morass in the United States, I was very interested in watching again. I never understood the hatred and moral decadence of German citizens, how the human mind and soul could function in their willful ignorance or worse, participate in the cruelty and mass murders, disposition of bodies.

With a little more experience with life under my belt, I listened carefully to the dialogue of the movie.

Many things jumped out at me.

The statement above was said by Spencer Tracy playing Chief Judge Dan Haywood. He said it in the context of explaining one would expect all men carrying out such heinous crimes to be and appear evil. But, that is not how it operates. When momentum takes over the culture of a country, men and women who consider themselves good people participate in crimes against the body and soul.

So many people claimed they did not know what was happening. Ernst Janning, a defendant on trial admitted it was a lie. He said they were present when their neighbors were dragged out of their homes and if they didn't know, it was because they didn't want to know.

After Ernst Janning incriminated himself, counsel for the defense did damage control by saying that if ordinary men should be convicted of complicit assistance to the 6 million murders, then many others are also guilty. He mentioned the quislings at the Vatican who signed a concordant with the Third Reich.

I always gave the Holy See the benefit of the doubt, but Pope Francis agreements with the communist tyrants in Cuba have relieved me of my delusion. I now have the benefit of my front row seat to the s**t show of the wealthy communists ability to use the Pope like a puppet to help spread the tyranny in Cuba to the United States.

I've read and heard all the excuses used for the concordant with the Nazis. Any way you slice it, Hitler bought public approval and silence from the Vatican so they could save their own backsides from the Crucifixion. They won their freedom from oppression by bartering the lives of 6 million people. It was wrong then and it is wrong now.

Christ didn't draw up a truce with Herod. Peter didn't sign a concordant with Nero.

Please read up on Pope Pius XII. The Communists did a smear job on him and used a play called the Deputy to accuse the Church. You will be glad to know it was not true. God bless you. There was much propaganda in Hollywood saying all the Germans were evil from birth. We made films which said so and even Gen. Patton called it bull****. I don't wish to argue with you, I commend you for your defense of our faith. But we are getting a lot of false messages. Pray for me and I will pray for you, your sister in faith Caroline

In case you want to read my take on Judgement at Nuremburg.

Caroline, I do believe there is plenty of smear jobs going on, even with Pope Francis. But there is just too much evidence that can't be denied.

With respect to the agreement with the Third Reich that gave Hitler credibility and a promise of the Vatican's silence - there is no question that they knew what was happening. Everyone knew. That's why all the allied forces joined together to stop it. The Holy See wouldn't need to make an agreement unless they knew.

They are back to their old tricks of looking the other way. God knows how many times we have seen it and how much damage it has done to the Church and world, especially children. The only thing they're stopping now is whistleblowers and people who are trying to preserve the Church that Christ left for Sanctifying Grace. It is under siege. Prayers and peace, Carol

Our Lady of Good Success "As for the Sacrament of Matrimony, which symbolizes the Union of Christ with His Church, it will be attacked and profaned in the fullest sense of the word. Masonary, which will then be in power, will enact iniquitous laws with the objective of doing away with this Sacrament, making everyone to live in sin, encouraging the procreation of illegitimate children born without the blessing of the Church. The Christian spirit will rapidly decay, extinguishing the light of Faith until it reaches the point that there will be an almost total and general corruption of customs. The effects of secular education will increase, which will be one reason for the lack of priestly and religious." Our Lady of Good Success.

A rabbi wrote an great book on this subject, The Myth of Hitler's Pope. David Dalin I believe.

I can't recall it all now but the New York Times in 1942 thanked Pius XII publicly in an editorial for being the "sole" voice to cry out against the Nazi Regime. He also saved approximately 800,000 Jews by use of the Hole See's territory. Hiding them.

Hitler had a gun to Pius's head for almost all of WW2 and there were plans to kidnap him. The Vatican had no army with which to attack Germany.

I would also suggest a re-viewing of the movie, "The Assisi Underground" which is based on a true story.
