SSPX-biskopen skriver till Vatikanen

"VATICAN CITY – A bishop recently rehabilitated by Pope Benedict XVI expressed regret Friday to the pontiff for the "distress and problems" he caused by denying the Holocaust.

In a letter to the Vatican, Bishop Richard Williamson, who recently denied in a TV interview that 6 million Jews were murdered during the Holocaust, called his remarks "imprudent."

The letter was posted on Williamson's personal blog and addressed to Cardinal Dario Castrillon Hoyos, who has been dealing with the rehabilitation of Williamson and other renegade bishops who had been excommunicated.

The Holocaust denial had outraged Jewish groups and many others. It was not immediately clear if Williamson's letter, which contained no apology for the content of his remarks, would ease that anger.

"Amidst this tremendous media storm stirred up by imprudent remarks of mine on Swedish television, I beg of you to accept, only as is properly respectful, my sincere regrets for having caused to yourself and to the Holy Father so much unnecessary distress and problems," Williamson wrote.

Papal spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi said he had "nothing to say about this letter. Everyone can evaluate it as they see fit."

Lombardi said he didn't know if the pope or the cardinal had seen it."

Här är en länk till biskopens herdabrev som lästes i mässorna idag:

Fick också ännu mer intressanta upplysningar om Williamsons syn på ditt och datt - varför kvinnor inte bör bli advokater t.ex.

Det är nästan så man kunde börja skriva Williamsonhistorier i stil med Norgehistorier... ;-)

Helt absurt...
