Let us call a spade a spade here and stop apologizing for Ratzinger. This man has flitted from country to country over the last 20 years preaching
moral relativisim to those whose shoes he cannot shine, while publishing his own self-apologizing epistle for his membership in the Nazi youth
Now I fully understand that adolescence and even an adult under 30 years old needs some leeway for the decisions they make, but this man holds a
position that the RCC claims is at the appointment of God himself. At the age of 12, Ratzinger enrolled in the Traunstein seminary, and no doubt were
he to be asked, he would say that by that age, it was his calling from his Christ. There is therefore no confusing him with his actions at 16, where
he received the call to join the Nazi Youth movement and turned his back on his God, if he believed in his deity.
Ratzinger had a choice like all other German youths, some of whom decided it was better to be martyred for their beliefs than join Hitler's party,
and gain membership instead in the Edeilweiss Pirates resistance movement, a youth oriented organization which literally gave the SS fits for their
anti-Nazi stance. But no! Ratzinger instead, forsook his God, took the easy way out, then decided to defect. This man who just prior to April 19, wore
a red garb for decades signifying that he was willing to die for his God cannot be forgiven for his eschewing 4 years of devotion to that same
calling, and should be strongly condemned for pointing his moralistic finger at others.
