Fundamentalists Disrupt Jewish-Catholic Kristallnacht Remembrance

By: JTA

Fundamentalist Christians disrupted a joint Jewish-Christian ceremony commemorating Kristallnacht held at the Buenos Aires City´s Metropolitan Cathedral Tuesday night.

The event was organized by the Inter-Religious Dialogue Committee and Bnai Brith Argentina.

When the Archbishop of Buenos Aires, Mario Poli, tried to start the ceremony’s liturgy of commemoration, the fundamentalist group interrupted the ceremony, praying in loud voices and distributing brochures against “the presence of fake gods at our main Cathedral.”

After a standoff that lasted several minutes, police officials arrived at the Cathedral. The demonstrators left at the request of Father Fernando Gianetti, who made the request in the name of Poli, successor to Archbishop Jorge Bergoglio, who now is Pope Francis.

Julio Schlosser, president of DAIA, Argentina’s Jewish political umbrella, told JTA of the incident that “Nazi hordes spread poison on the victims of the Holocaust.”

  1. What would generate such an event? Hard to figure these people out. But the major force in proselylization of Jews has been an ‘evangelical’ Protestant franchise, particularly by Pentecostals, and then Baptists and such like. Both of these groups typically see Catholicism in ‘apocalyptic’ (still!) terms. So much cooperation between Jews and Catholics (who are technically more progressive about Judaism–yes, I said it) could upset more traditional sects. I know synagogues that need armed security during services because of evangelical cult members who try to disrupt services.

  2. Greg Hampton says:

    I am a fundamentalist Baptist Christian, and I do believe that the Catholic Church is in gross error against much of what God tells us through the Bible for too often the Catholic Church relies upon the wisdom of man for its doctrine, rather then th word of God. Jews who do not accept Jesus Christ as the Son of God are also in gross error.

    Having said that, the activities of those Christians who act in openly disruptive ways are also in error. Indeed we are commanded by the Bible to challenge false doctrine, but we are to do so with humility, love, and long suffering….none of which would have been an attribute on display in this disruptive behavior.

  3. Fulton sheen says:

    There are not a hundred people in America who hate the Catholic Church. There are millions of people who hate what they wrongly believe to be the Catholic Church — which is, of course, quite a different thing. — Fulton Sheeen

  4. Danny Tesvich SJ says:

    Just for the sake of clarity, these were not exactly "Fundamentalist Christians." They were schismatic, hyper-traditionalist Catholics who refuse to acknowledge the authority of the Second Vatican Council and the authority of later popes, including the teachings about respect for and dialogue with Jews and Judaism.

    They mostly stay confined in their own schismatic chapels and seminaries complaining about how awful everything is, but for some of them that is not enough. This group felt the need to remind everyone that they are still blithering, hateful idiots. But they don't represent in any way authentic Catholicism or even most traditionalist Catholics.
