No. I don't have the ability to follow links on my mobile connection. Would you just tell me, please?
Basically, it tells about the collaboration between the Vatican and the Ustasha regime in Croatia during WWII. The regime was Nazi-backed, and carried out massive a genocide against the Orthodox Serbs and Croats. Pope Pius XII was apparently a supporter of Croation Catholic nationalism and latently permitted the actions being carried out by fundamentalist clergy. He was heavily criticized for refusing to cut ties with the Ustasha, and entertained their Catholic leader, Ante Pavelich, twice. More directly in charge of the situation was Abp. Aloysius Stepinac, archbishop of Zagreb, who ended up being indicted in post-war trials for backing the Ustasha (but nor for war crimes per se) and sentenced to sixteen years in prison. When his sentence was cut short, Pope Pius elevated him to the status of cardinal, and he was beatified by Pope John Paul II.
To make myself clear, I am not concerned with proving that this could never be done by Orthodox bishops (it has). What I do hope to show is that this is a terrible example of why the whole Church should not look up to a single human leader for guidance. Again, I am not trying to point fingers or even take a particular stance in this argument. I am just throwing in my 2 cents.
While the above is true, the section I cited deals with the 1990's when all of us were alive:during the drive for independence Trdujman, a "historian" and the Croatian leader and president, began writing denying the Ustashe atrocities, renaming streets and square to honor them, adopting symbols of the Ustashe as the symbols of the new state (somewhat inevitable, given that parts of the symbols are of old provinence). Here in the US, in Chicago, I saw lots of bumper stickers showing this
with Za dom - spremni! "For home-we are ready!" written over it: its the Croatian version of Sieg Heil!http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Za_dom_-_spremni
Needless the say, the Serbs saw no reason to wait when when the Croats were doing this, banning Cyrillic etc. to wait for what would come next. So the Krajina, heavily Serb for centuries, voted to cecede from Croatia, as Croatia voted to cecede from Yugoslavia (molded in its socialist form by a Croat). The Croats, however, didn't see it that way, and while breaking away from Yugoslavia, came down hard on the Krajina.
IIRC, the Vatican was the first state to recognize Trudjman's independence.
