    Vicente Hernandez says: "I would like to bring back to the readers` memory the solemn apology made by Pope John Paul II in 2000 for the mistakes the Church may have committed against the beloved Jewish people. Many times during the pontificates after the II World War, the succesive Popes have manifested their apologies and the great respect of the Catholic Church for the Jewish people" Really? Why then was it as late as 1961 that the Catholic Church removed the phrase "perfidious Jew" from its official meanderings? Why did the last "Papa" beatify Stepinac, a patron saint of genocide, if anything. This was pretty recent, late 1990s, early 2000s. Why was Hitler's Mein Kampf never placed, and still isn't, on the Roman Catholic Church's Banned List? Because Hitler was, in fact, a devout Catholic, perhaps? On the other hand, Galileo's treatise about a Sun centred Solar System was only removed from that list in the early 1990s. Weird priorities, wouldn't you say?
