Anti-Vatican Perpectives

leave a comment »

Anti-Vatican rhetoric heated up last week when the Catholic World News mistranslated a story from L’Osservatore Romano. In a correction, Vatican paper raps Sri Lanka on Israeli aid (correction), the fairer truth has come to light. The original article generated a heated Jewish response. Though the ADL hid its response behind its opening page, it has now posted an apology there. I had defended the Vatican on the Jew School Blog, but my opponents were too concerned with Catholic-baiting to see that this was anomolous, even if true. Fortunately, my primary adversary did moderate his position during our discussion, and he deserves credit for toning down his rhetoric. For further reading, the ADL has noted tremendous improvements in Jewish-Catholic relations.
