But ignored warnings about Williamson's antisemitism:
The Vatican has rejected Bishop Richard Williamson's carefully worded apology for his remarks about the Holocaust. Good. Williamson has no serious intention of recanting; that much is clear. Rome wanted him to change his views and, since he hasn't, it isn't satisfied with his apology.
I'm getting really fed up with Catholic traditionalists who temper their criticism of this despicable man. Thank God, many priests who say the older form of Mass are appalled by him: I spoke to one distinguished traditionalist priest this week who had vainly tried to warn the Vatican of Williamson's anti-Semitism before the decree of excommunication was lifted. "I even sent them the video of him saying those awful things," he said helplessly.
