The head of an ultraconservative society is asking for forgiveness from Pope Benedict XVI for the claims by one of his bishops that no Jews were gassed in World War II. Bishop Bernard Fellay, superior general of the traditionalist Society of St. Pius X, said his group doesn't share the views of Bishop Richard Williamson about what Fellay called the "genocide" of Jews by the Nazis.
