New post Erich Priebke funeral
Magnificent: http://sspx.org/en/news-events/news/pri ... rview-2703

I had not, as far as I can recall, ever heard of Priebke until yesterday, and he does not appear to be a man of any great interest, but his funeral has been one of those clarifying moments of history, when opposing moral systems are laid bare in all their respective beauty and ugliness.

Priebke’s crime was foul, but the general run of the media, academia, etc. has justified and whitewashed the crime to which Priebke was reacting – viz. the street bombing which killed not only dozens of German soldiers but also Roman civilians (including a teenage boy). So the moral lesson we are supposed to learn is that murdering schoolboys with indiscriminate bombing is OK if you kill occupying soldiers as well, but even a repentant criminal is to be hated and denied a respectable burial if his victims were Communists. Can the morality of the world discredit itself any more thoroughly than this?

What's interesting is that he was never associated with the SSPX.

What's strange is that, as this article says, "the pope's vicar for Rome, Cardinal Agostino Vallini refused him a church funeral. Albano [Priebke's diocese] is about 30 kilometers (20 miles) southeast of Rome and isn't part of Vallini's archdiocese."

How can Agostino Vallini refuse a funeral for someone outside his diocese?…

Priebke wasn't from Albano, I presume. The SSPX was asked, and agreed, out of a sense of both justice and charity.

Edit: I just noticed that you refer to Albano as "Priebke's diocese". Is that correct? Albano happens to be the suburb of Rome in which the SSPX has its house. What makes you identify it as Priebke's diocese?
