    I wish they wouldn't go thru with this. Pius XII refused to speak out publicly against what is probably the greatest crime in human history. No neutral figure in Europe had anything remotely like his influence, which he used only privately, to a quite limited extent. It's good he saved some lives but it ain't good enough given his influence on the hearts of so much of Europe. What should be beyond dispute is his catastrophic diplomatic error (shared by most everybody) as Vatican Secretary of State in the 1930's in not opposing Hitler, when he could easily have been stopped by the united democracies. As a historical note not related to Pius XII, I'm not sure whether the Vatican supported or just condoned Mussolini's takeover of Italy in 1922, but they certainly could have stopped him if they wanted to, so they must take a major share of the blame for the introduction of fascism to pre-World War II Europe. I don't think the Vatican become a believer in democracy until the 1960's.
