Because apparently he said it SO clearly that they had to re-spin it afterward once they found out the public wasn't buying the bullshit.

Have they blamed it on a [holy-] ghost-writer yet?

Come on. Ratzinger was conscripted into the Hitler Youth — as membership was required by law. You can take the boy out of the NAZI, but can you take the NAZI out of the boy?

If Ratzi had made his confirmation at that time, and he probably had, he was supposed to be willing to literally give his life for the church. Did he? Nope. He joined the Hitler Youth and covered his a**.

So much for his "faith". He had a choice!

I agree, but we're all human and we all make mistakes. God have mercy on all of us.

You're right, and your attitude is much better (and smarter) than mine. I have no trouble admitting when I've been wrong and I thank you for your very wise and compassionate input.

Happy Thanksgiving!
