LEE: This is a ridiculous notion. Pius XI stated to a group of Belgian pilgrims "We are all (Jews and Catholics) spiritual Semites." The Vatican wanted Jews to convert, not made extinct.
S Well, no. They were very particular about not converting Jews in those years, because they did not want insincere converts who were converting only to save their lives. They regularly refused to issue baptismal certificates that would have saved Jewish lives. They were more interested in excluding Jews from the conversion process, because their sincerity could not be regarded as trustworthy, in the circumstances.
Try again, Lee. Perhaps you can do better.
