all it takes, to be a saint, is to save 12 Jews

Filed under: Holocaust — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 8:43 am

The following quote is from a news article, which you can read in full at

http://www.haaretz.com/jewish/news/1.723261

Begin quote:

A Swedish nun who saved Jewish families during World War II was canonized by Pope Francis in a ceremony at St Peter’s Square on Sunday, the NNC reported.

Mary Elizabeth Hesselblad, a Lutheran who converted to Catholicism, is Sweden’s first saint in more than 600 years.

Hesselblad, a former nurse, is credited with saving at least 12 Jews during the war by concealing them inside the Rome convent where she was the mother superior. The Jews remained hidden for about six months until the end of the war.

End quote

Excuse me! I don’t believe that, saving only 12 Jews, warrants sainthood.  There were 6 million Jews killed in the Holocaust. Why couldn’t she have saved a few more Jews?

According to the news article, this is Sweden’s first saint in 600 years. Maybe if there had been more Jews in Sweden, there would have been more saints.  Saving a gentile gets you nothing, as far as I know.

My favorite saint is St. Jude, the patron saint of lost causes.

St. Jude - the patron saint of lost causes

St. Jude – the patron saint of lost causes

When you think that everything in your life is hopeless, pray to St. Jude; he will get you through it.

  2. FG…. we are thankful that we can debate the HoloHoax topic on this blog but you have to understand that you don’t see anybody from any of those 19 countries
    the Holocaust Revisionist discussion is banned using their real names posting here because if they did they would be arrested and put in jail or fined heavily.

      It is true that you don’t see any comments from people living in the 19 countries that don’t allow Holocaust denial.

      However, I get to see where visitors to my blog live. I get visitors from every country in the world. On one or two days a week, I get visitors from Germany to my blog. It is never just 1 or 2 people in Germany, who read my blog on a given day, it is always 16 or 20 or even 25 people who have logged onto my blog. I suspect that these are people who are meeting in secret and looking at forbidden information, which they are not allowed to read without penalty of arrest. I can’t tell if these people are Jews or Germans, but I am guessing that they are Germans.

      • You do realize those are not the only two possibilities?

          I read the news religiously, and I watch the news on TV, but I didn’t know this. Now, it seems that laws that deny freedom of speech are so common place that it is not even news.

          • ‘Holocaust denial’ is no freedom of speech, FG. It is rabid anti-Semitism, fervent racism, deep hatred, and incitement to violence against Jews, at least if the words told by the European Court of Human Rights (response to Garaudy’s 2003 request about the Gayssot Act) are anything but BS. The ECHR clearly told Mr. Garaudy that ‘Holocaust denial’ is not protected as a human right to freedom of speech and that he can’t use the article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights about freedom of speech in order to attack democracy and Human Rights themselves (what ‘Holocaust denial’ does, the ECHR said), nothing less! I’m afraid the first amemdment of the US Constitution won’t protect the right to doubt or deny the Holocaust for a very long time. Obscenity in movies and novels has been banned despite the 1st amemdment. I’m sure that US Jewry will successfully have hate speech (or alleged hate speech) banned quite soon and that US Jews will make sure that ‘Holocaust denial’ is regarded as a form of hate speech. Ironically; many Jews opposed the passing and the enforcement of the US obscenity law for obvious reasons (the main one being that Jews have always been major propagators of obscenity), but their offspring will certainly push very hard for the passing of the coming US Hate Speech – Holocaust denial law.

            P. S. There is a new thread on codoh about the Italian law criminalizing ‘Holocaust denial.’ Just in case you want more info about that.

              I am in favor of a Holocaust denial law in the USA. I am too old for prison, so the US government will have to pay for nursing home care for me after I am convicted of Holocaust denial.

              • You could save a lot of money with that. Good idea. And younger revisionists could save the cost of rent that way.

        • So, Anonymous is Hasbara now?
          What about me? Made up your mind yet?

          Comment by Jeff K. — June 10, 2016 @ 12:36 pm

          • That (i.e. Anonymous being Hasbara) was the intent and meaning of my recent ‘joke’ about Israel sending us a new warrior to save you from running short on duck pics.

            About you, I have not yet made up my mind. But your insistence on wanting to know my opinion about that makes you suspect, for sure…

                I can see the e-mail address of every person who writes a comment; I don’t know if everyone can see the e-mail address. At this time, there is only one person commenting, who is using the name Anonymous. There made have been other people who used the name Anonymous in the past, but right now, you are the only one.

                • I meant during the last several days/weeks, not necessarily at that very moment.

  3. Not to offend anyone here but now we have two cults benefiting each other.
