The Vatican on Wednesday demanded that a prelate who denied the Holocaust recant his positions before being fully admitted as a bishop into the Roman Catholic Church.
It also said Pope Benedict XVI had not known about Bishop Richard Williamson's views when he agreed to lift his excommunication and that of three other ultraconservative bishops Jan. 21.
"Bring him back immediately", stated the Pope to three Swiss guards. "Here are the keys to the popemobile. It's due for an oil change, so do that after picking up Williamson. Be sure they change the filter too."
"Then place a call to the Spanish Inquisition! He won't be expecting them. No one does!"
"Make a smuck out of me will he?"
