    • forgiving is not

    Whatever happened to 'thou shalt not kill, steal, lie' ? Apparently the anti-democratic hierarchy of the vatican has considered them nothing more than the Ten Suggestions, as they have throughout the last millenium. A difference between Catholics and Jews is that with the Jews you cannot merely ask God for foriveness if you have wronged another person, you must ask forgiveness from that person as well. Catholics are not really prone to truth and responsibility (as the comments here show), and believe they can cleanse themselves with 'sorrow', 'remorse' or other vaporish 'feelings'. Nobody should care about 'feelings' nor should anyone be deceived by their expression. The only things that matter are historical truth and responsibility, and in these matters the Vatican has a lot to own up to. If they want 'forgiveness' from the Jews for their crimes against them throughout the 20th century, the mendacity must end and they could start by opening up their archives to all historians
