Polish Priest Denies Antisemitism

Fr. Tadeusz Rydzyk of Radio Maryja denies he’s antisemitic, and is backed by his superior.

Well, rarely do you meet an antisemite who accepts the term. Catholic antisemites like the SSPX will play word games and restrict the term, in their definition, to racial theories, and then say that since they have theological objections to Judaism, not racial, they can’t be antisemitic. That was the defense of the Irish Spiritan, Fr. Denis Fahey, too.

He’s going to have to issue a full and very careful statement of his views, responding to specific quotes, if he wants to be believed.  See the webpage of the Simon Wiesenthal Center for more.
