George McIsaac’s unwarranted criticism of Pam Frampton in his letter “Thou shalt not kill” (Oct. 27) gave me cause to ask Mr. McIsaac this question.
Mr. McIsaac, if you are such an expert on the terrible atrocities inflicted on millions of innocent men, women and children by the Nazis during the Second World War, please give me your opinion on the role Pope Pius XII (your pope) played throughout the entire period of these mass murders.
It is on record that Pope Pius XII showed indifference and turned a blind eye to Hitler’s plan (the Holocaust).
McIsaac ends his letter to the Telegram with this: “We Christians should all remember the fifth commandment — thou shall not kill.”
A far greater sin
One can assume, then, that McIsaac has to condemn one of his own for a far greater sin than the one he feels Pam Frampton committed in opposing his views — a sin of indifference towards human life by a one-time powerful (worldwide) Christian leader of the Catholic Church (your church, Mr. McIsaac).
I look forward to reading your answer.
