In an interview with "Die Presse" journalist Nowak Cardinal Schönborn has replaced the cross by a seven-branched candle holder of the Jewish B'nai B'rith lodge.
The Catholic Church has a strong sense of the setting of symbols, gestures and actions. In the Holy Mass, they stand pars pro toto , hints describe the whole, the unspoken. In particular, in the liturgy before its denaturing by the evil spirit of Vatican II, the individual acts and gestures have been thought important.
Not coincidentally "simple" clerics (and certainly bishops and cardinals) attend the cross that is just perceptible in the public pictures of them, which is seen as a guide in the best sense of the word.
Schönborn's Seven-branched Candlestick of the Jewish B'nai B'rith lodge
Not so with Cardinal Schönborn: In a conversation with the editor of the Viennese daily "Die Presse" of 25 March 2014 for the ORF “someone” had chosen as an image background something other than the expected cross, but a sparkling seven-branched candle holder.
The number seven, however, does not point out that it is seven spirits before the throne of God (Rev 1,4), rather it is here referring to the seven-branched candlestick, which the Archbishop, himself the son of a Freemason, received as a "special appreciation" from the Jewish Loge B’nai Brith in late October 2013.
“As luck would have it" Cardinal Schönborn wanted to curry favor even when "Press" editor in chief Nowak, who refused military service and had done instead performed civil service at the extreme left-wing "Documentation Archive of the Austrian Resistance”. He's likely me much less brave representatives of the Church.
Schönborn: Christ had "deserved the death penalty ..."
The partisanship for Jewish interests is also evident in his essay "Judaism and Christianity" in "The Jewish Echo", Vol 46, pp. 15 ff here represents Cardinal Schönborn the right positivist view that it was "undeniable" that Christ has "by the applicable laws deserved the death penalty ... [for blasphemy] ."
Eminence, have your interpretation by then - in an analog to legal positivist thinking - maybe the Jews had "earned" the legal consequences of legal validity as subsisting in Nuremberg Race Laws or here is perhaps a logical fallacy on your part?
"Excessively" Evil Christians and the “Terrible" Question of Who is Christ
Cardinal Schönborn mentioned in this article, there was indeed a persecution of Christians by Jews, only they were "rewarded in abundance" by the Christians:
"The more it broke [the question of who Jesus was] from the outside in, booming, full of terror, spreading fear and often death. In the memoirs of the rabbi's son David Tulman I read,” writes Cardinal Schönborn, that for his own - and for how many Jews over how many generations! - Good Friday was a terrible day. To him it came with pogroms, they were the 'murderers of God', who were the 'perfidious' Jews who crucified Jesus, who were persecuted by the riotous Christians."
Hands-on anti-Catholicism: "perfidious" instead of "faithless"?
The Archbishop of Vienna, used here not by chance the name, 'perfide Juden', mixing Latin with German and gives here the pejorative smell of perfidy to the traditional Good Friday prayers for the conversion of the "perfidious Jews" ("Oremus et pro perfidis Judaeis") that just means something completely different than infidelity.
Weird - No Blessing by Christianity?
“It is not infrequently encountered by Christians on the seriously flawed statement that Jesus proclaimed a loving Father God instead of the Old Testament God of wrath - a sign of how deeply the anti-Jewish furrows are dug in Christian soil,” Cardinal Schönborn would have gone further.
The Archbishop of Vienna "dared" "the statement ..., Christianity is reminded by Judaism of its order to be a bearer of blessings for all peoples," and ". Anti-Judaism is therefore infidelity to God."
Only one must ask why the theocracy of Israel locks out parts of the Muslim population on Jewish high holidays by the "blessing" of access restrictions.
