ADL asks pope to denounce priest's anti-Semitism

August 9, 2007 10:12

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has called on Pope Benedict XVI to publicly denounce the continued anti-Semitic statements being espoused by a controversial priest and radio personality in Poland. The ADL, which has long protested about Radio Maryja, the Catholic radio station known for its anti-Semitic broadcasts, wrote to the Pope following the pontiff's private meeting with Father Tadeusz Rydzyk, founder and director of Radio Maryja. In a letter to Benedict XVI, Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, expressed deep concerns that by meeting with Rydzyk and keeping silent about the issue of anti-Semitism "you have unfortunately lent him the priceless credibility of your office and integrity in the eyes of the world."
