Longtime readers of this blog will recall that soon after I started this blog in 2002 a matter arose to which I gave much attention. Catholic apologist Robert Sungenis had begun to write disturbing things about Jews; I saw that he quoted an “Adolf Schmalix” on FDR’s ancestry. This had an unpleasant odor about it, so I did some investigation. I was quite surprised to discover that Sungenis, in his haste to prepare an angry denunciation of a recent document from a US Catholic bishops’ committee, had cut and pasted whatever he could find on the internet against Jews. He didn’t attribute his sources–one of which I discovered to be a Nazi propaganda tract. You can read all the details here.
Sungenis lost a lot of credibility as a result of his anti-Jewish writings and his advocacy of geocentrism, among both his readers and his staff. At one point he said he would no longer write about Jewish issues. He said he would submit to his local bishop.
But things have been unraveling. Not only has he continued to write about Jewish issues, but he has now taken to denouncing his bishop.
Michael Forrest, one of his former staff members, has continued to follow this, and now publishes a letter he got from the bishop of Harrisburg about Sungenis.
