Seriously, though, you were way to quick to accuse me of revisionist history, even if I was playing on the whole revisionist history thing in order to get a laugh. Trane already made a great post on this issue, but I could add more. When I was an undergraduate, I wrote a paper on the Catholic Church and the Holocaust. This is a touchy subject. I don't think the Church could have possibly saved all the Jews; I'm definitely not saying that, but there are some things the Church should not be proud of, given that the Pope is supposedly a moral leader. To be fair, Allied governments, including the Canadian and American ones, have a lot to be ashamed of as well. But nobody ever gets mad at me when I bring up political leaders, yet they always flip their lid over the Pope and the Church.

One thing I can't do is bother. Here I have a pic of a Facist Leader and now we are talking about the morality of and truth about History and Governments. I had a feeling this would happen and I'm not going to be walking on eggshells doing so. I'm taking off my avatar and just not even answering you anymore. For a guy that goes from Silly to Serious how should I really respond to you anyways.
