More on Poland

As I’ve mentioned before, a Polish priest, Tadeusz Rydzyk, is under fire for antisemitic comments he has made. He’s been likened to Fr. Charles Coughlin (American radio demagogue in the 1930s) because of his high profile radio broadcasts. The New York Times reports of the concerns expressed by the Simon Wiesenthal Center, which has urged the Vatican to intervene.

The Jesuit run Centrum Kultury i Dialogue (Centre of Culture and Dialogue) in Krakow has also written a letter denouncing Rydzyk (English translation), signed by “more than 600 Catholic intellectuals, journalists, priests and Catholic activists.”
