Rabbis call for the removal of Catholic church at Auschwitz.

As part of the commeration of the liberation of Auschwitz 75 years ago there was a programme on German TV last night called "Ein Tag in Auschwitz" (one day in Auschwitz). It concerned mostly the activities of the SS photographer Stabsscharführer (Sgt) Bernard Walter and his assistant. They photographed everything, absolutley everything and published 15 albums with around 200 pictures. The only surviving example is in a museum in Israel. In addition two survivors were interviewed, one who as a young girl, about 13, was taken to Auschwitz with the rest of her family, she and an older sister survived. The other person interviewed was a Polish Jew who worked with other prisoners disposing of the bodies of murder victims. He escaped and later moved to the States where he is still living.
The SS photos revealed in great detail what was nothing less than industrialised mass murder. Although most of the victims were Jews, there were also large numbers of gypsies, socialists, communists, homosexuals and anyone else the Reich took a disliking to, eg Russian POWs. Rabbi Weis ought to bear that in mind.
I found the programme difficult to watch and had to look away several times.
Paragraph 175 was part of the German criminal code which was only repealed in 1994. It made homosexuality illegal.

A documentary called 'Paragraph 175' detailed amongst other things the story of Pierre Seel who was arrested and taken to Schirmek concentration camp for being gay. He was 18 years old.

He'd not been there long when the inmates were called to witness punishment.

It turned that his boyfriend had been arrested too.

The boyfriend was stripped naked, had a tin bucket put on his head to muffle his screams and was mauled to death by the camp dogs.

Paragraph 175 is worth watching but you'll need a strong stomach.

As an aside, for a long time the poofs were known as Paragraf 175ers. In the third Reich the lucky ones were shot, the others got a one way train ticket.
 
Those were authored much later, and couldn't be attributed to anyone known to the Apostles. Think of them as the equivalent of Star Wars 'fan fiction', which fans can easily differentiate from the official and canonical works..
Fan fiction; I like that. I haven't tried to read any of them. The Gospel of Thomas is thought to be earlier than most of the Nag Hammadi texts and is labelled as a 'gnostic' gospel mostly because it was found with the other Nag Hammadi texts. Some factual bits may have been edited out with the deranged nonsense.

It would be interesting if it's ever discovered who wrote it, and when. Perhaps a wealthy follower of Jesus who wanted a personal record of His teachings?

.............. or it could be a scribe- teacher, to use in the future to illustrate what a load of old cobblers is uttered in the name of religion. Its all ifs, buts and maybes, supposition and wishful thinking to reinforce unsubstantiated waffle.

You militant anti-theists are like a ColdPlay CD, given how repetitive and lacking in substance your snipes are. And most of you must have severe learning difficulties, as you keep restating the same juvenile insults regardless of how many times we've restated facts.

Are you merely copying and pasting the same tired bollocks from a master document or what? It's always the same bullshit endlessly reposted verbatim.

**** knows how you managed your GCSEs.

Insults and swear words. The last refuge of a lost discussion. I honestly thought you were better than that.

They're not insults. They're statements of fact.


The discussion would only be lost because anti-theists make utter bellends of themselves by wading into a discussion about religion and posting their pre-fabricated insults against something they clearly know nothing about.

Why they do this is beyond me.

GCSE's did not exist when I was at school, however I did get enough of an education to get me into collage, and subsequently into a job which me saw rise to the top of my profession, finishing on £50K a year, that was back in 2016, when I retired, all without the help, hindrance or control of organised religion,...... aint life grand!

Oh, and by the way, for your ears only, I do not paste, Or copy, but I do have a regular slot in the local papers up here in the midlands, , one of them in Birmingham, and all your religious fervour, and un-doubted reliance on a un-proven concept has given me the seed idea for my next copy. 500 words should do it. That is it all I am allowed.

The stand first will I think be:- "The sufferings of a religious zealot, the story of a totally transfixed slave to religion".......................Be lucky.*

* That is an old east end phrase, and has a deeper meaning than you could ever possibly imagine.

Beacause we can,............. suck it in buttercup!

I'm not sure who you mean by anti-theists.
I'm not an atheist myself. I just despise the sanctimonious, idolatrous, hypocritical, mythology-addicted, disingenuous, arrogant, corrupt aspects of the so-called religious,
One can only hope that one day human society will be cleansed of their abominations, but as you yourself so succinctly asked here - what would that leave people to grasp onto instead?

His true colours apparently - like his attempted "Jewish rabbis" snipe yesterday, because he thought I give a monkeys about them.
That's the religious to a tee - always gobbing off about ethics and salvation and what not but in the end you find it's 99% hypocrisy and self serving ego shoring..
 
In theory perhaps. Regrettably it is more likely that the religions would just be replaced by equally misleading and harmful forms of idolatry and self-delusion.

My bold. Un-fortunately, the weak of mind, and poorly educated have to have some form of crutch to lean on, and there is no lack of chancers and charlatans out their willing to afford them the opportunity to buy into their version of salvation. Drugs, drink, and gambling seem to be the preferred 21st century choices, for the more restrained, there is always organised religion.

It has been said that the state of California, has more religions in its borders than any state in the union. most of them requiring large amounts of money to fund their ministries.
 
Imagine buying a used car from @scarbrough if he behaves in life like he behaves on this thread.

"Yeah, great motor, the only thing to do your journey in, made by the best, nothing better actually etc etc."

"Has it been regularly serviced?"

No answer

"Has it been regularly serviced?"

"Beautiful day today eh? Aren't those cars driving past beautiful? Good on their creators!"

"Has it been regularly serviced?"

"The AA is always by your side. Thus sayeth the AA my child"

"Let's see the log book."

"Errr many people believed there was a log book as other cars in that region had log books so if we study available log books of cars we can gain a reasonable picture of how this car may have been serviced.... Praise be!"


You can be happy with your chosen belief system @scarbrough but based on your conduct here as a "religious" person - I don't think I'd buy a used car from you.​

I gave you a 'like' because it's an exceptionally creative work of prose, and because I appreciate the effort that must have been put in (I'm not like those anti-theists, whose detritus of unprincipled assumption is laid strewn across the gravel of modernist thought for all to pity).

Concordantly, I couldn't mark it as 'excellent' because your little parable isn't reflective of the situation, vis a vis my selfless provision to all who thirst for Catholic truth.

tbh all I've been asking you for is your Catholic truth
