Here's an interesting tidbit.

This week,"Familia Cristina" Catholic Newspaper in Italy, condemned Berlosconi's Nothern League's policies towards Roma/Sinti.
The newspaper compared the policies of the present right wing Italian government with those of Mussolini's government towards Jews and Gypsies in the 1930's-40's.

Not surprisingly to students of history, the official voice of the Catholic Church has distanced themselves from the condemnation of the racist policies of the present Italian government by "Famiglia Cristina".

Whoa. Deja Vu all over again.

It is no surprise that the "official" Catholic position is one of appeasement. Exactly the same as during the WWII times.

Several Catholic newspapers in the United States supported the position of Famiglia Cristina. This is good news.

This reminds me of Liberation Theology, under which philosophy, Catholics all across Latin America supported the struggles of common people over those of the ruling class. Once again, the Vatican and "official" Catholics begged to differ.
Amen, eh?
