Here’s the full transcript of Muppet Bishop Richard Williamson‘s apology.
The Holy Father and my Superior, Bishop Bernard Fellay, have requested [Translation: I have been forced to write this.]
that I reconsider the remarks I made on Swedish television four months ago, because their consequences have been so heavy. [Sorry that the remarks brought heat on the Pope – not really sorry about the remarks being reprehensible]
.Observing these consequences I can truthfully say that I regret having made such remarks [Again, if the Jews and liberals hadn’t thrown a hissy fit, I wouldn’t be apologising]
, and that if I had known beforehand the full harm and hurt to which they would give rise, especially to the Church [Sorry again Papa]
, but also to survivors and relatives [let’s not put a specific number here. A plural could be two or 300,000 or 6 million (ha ha)]
of victims of injustice under the Third Reich, I would not have made them. [I should have known better than say things that the Jews and liberals might get wind of. Fricking internet…]
On Swedish television I gave only the opinion (…”I believe”…”I believe”…) of a non-historian [I’ll leave this open. They can think I’m calling myself a non-historian or else that I got my Holocaust denial stuff from some other quack]
, an opinion formed 20 years ago on the basis of evidence then available, and rarely expressed in public since. [It’s ‘rarely’ expressed, but it could be true though, right?]
However, the events of recent weeks [hissy fits] and the advice [ball busting] of senior members of the Society of St. Pius X have persuaded me of my responsibility for much distress caused [I’ve been told to take the heat off the top dogs]. To all souls that took honest scandal from what I said [Some of you have been milking it a bit, no?], before God I apologize.
As the Holy Father has said [screamed], every act of injust violence against one man hurts all mankind [he was really really fucked off when Angela Merkel phoned].
