Ex-Red agent: "The Deputy" smear of Pope Pius XII was a KGB plot

If you have not seen it already, you need to read ex-Red intelligence agent Ion Mihai Pacepa's article, "Moscow's Assault on the Vatican," in National Review Online, January 25, 2007 (click on this post's title).

Mr. Pacepa reveals the existence of all kinds of vicious plots against the Vicar of Christ and the Chair of Peter by the atheistic Communists of the USSR and its satellites.

One of the biggest revelations is that the play "The Deputy" in 1963, which set off terrible lies about Pope Pius XII that still fester today, was a plot by Communist intelligence to try to discredit the moral authority of the Holy See and the Catholic Church.

So if anybody, including liberal "dissenter" Catholics, ever tells you that Pope Pius XII was pro-Nazi, reply that they are totally wrong and then use this article to help set them straight.

And for more articles in defense of Pope Pius XII, got to this great archive at the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights: http://www.catholicleague.org/pius/framemain.htm

You realize the critiques of Pius XII are not based on any KGB sources, but things like US Army CIC files, British diplomatic papers, and his meeting with Pavelic and letting Pavelic borrow his summer home.

Dear Hoodlum,

A multitude of source material backs up good Pope Pius XII.
