Jewish People Not Responsible for Jesus' Death, Says Pope In New Book

Filed under: Etc.

Wow. Finally looks like something's come up that'll stir up more conversation than Charlie Sheen's every move!

In excerpts from his upcoming book Jesus of Nazareth-Part II, Pope Benedict XVI "explains biblically and theologically why there is no basis in Scripture for the argument that the Jewish people as a whole were responsible for Jesus' death."

Here's what American Gathering of Holocaust Survivors and their Descendants' Elan Steinberg had to say about it:

"Holocaust survivors know only too well how the centuries-long charge of 'Christ killer' against the Jews created a poisonous climate of hate that was the foundation of anti-Semitic persecution whose ultimate expression was realized in the Holocaust."

And here's what Anti-Defamation League national director Abraham H. Foxman had to say about it:

"[That Benedict is a theologian makes] this statement from the Holy See that much more significant for now and for future generations."

Thoughts???
