Thank God we don’t live in Germany where people have no freedom of speech to express their views, whether they are right or not.

From the Associated Press:

“A German court convicted ultraconservative British Bishop Richard Williamson on Friday for denying the Holocaust in a television interview.

A court in the Bavarian city of Regensburg found Williamson guilty of incitement for saying in a 2008 interview with Swedish television that he did not believe Jews were killed in gas chambers during World War II.

The court ordered Williamson to pay a fine of euro 10,000 ($13,544).

The Roman Catholic bishop [he was illicitly consecrated… nice try, AP] was barred by his order from attending Friday?s proceedings or making statements to the media.

His lawyer, Matthias Lossmann, told The Associated Press after the court ruling that Williamson has yet to decide if would appeal it.

Denying the Holocaust is a criminal offense in Germany.
