Pope Gives Human Rights Prize to 'Shoah' Sophist

Pope Gives Human Rights Prize to Frenchman

Award Named for John Paul II

VATICAN CITY, DEC. 10, 2009 (Zenit.org).- Benedict XVI bestowed the John Paul II Prize of the Auschwitz Institute for Human Rights to the French philosopher and author André Glucksmann.

The brief ceremony took place in the Vatican on Wednesday, immediately following the conclusion of the general audience in Paul VI Hall.

The award is given to those who have distinguished themselves in the promotion and defense of human rights in line with the teachings and witness of John Paul II.

André Glucksmann was born in 1937, in a suburb of Paris. His parents were Austrian Jews. In his book "A Child's Rage" (2006), Glucksmann recounts his experience growing up as a Jew in occupied France, and the effect it had on his philosophy.

He is known as one of the leading "New Philosophers." The term refers to those thinkers in France who criticized Marxism in the 1970s, as well as the philosophy of Jean-Paul Sartre, Friedrich Nietzsche and Martin Heidegger.

How about a Catholic Pole growing up in occupied Poland?

But that doesn't count, right?

And couldn't His Holiness find some worthy Catholic to give this "Human Rights" award to?

I find the Yiddish storytelling of the 'survivors' uninteresting and useless. It's quite easy for these folks to get their story straight after the story had already been canonized. The "reparation" payments, Zionist ideology and traditional rabbinic dispensations for lying account for the motivation.
