The article was very revealing as to the abilities of this supposed "spiritual leader." The following quote made me think of the Bible reading this past week when Jesus referred to the Pharisees and Sadducees as "blind guides" in Matthew 15: 14. Check this out:
"He confronted his own country's past when he visited the Nazi death camp at Auschwitz.To sincere servants of God, the answer to this question is no mystery. If you would like to learn why there's so much suffering on earth and if God is truly blind to it, please click here. As a side note, I'd like to add that there were thousands of Jehovah's Witnesses who were affected by the same war but with one large difference from the Pope. When Germany said military service was compulsory, they refused and preferred a concentration camp rather than compromise their standards.
Calling himself "a son of Germany", he prayed and asked why God was silent when 1.5 million victims, most of them Jews, died there during World War Two.
Ratzinger served in the Hitler Youth during World War Two when membership was compulsory. He was never a member of the Nazi party and his family opposed Adolf Hitler's regime."
