Anti-Catholic propaganda geniuses - an update

Thanks to an anonymous comment to my earlier post I am able to show the original photo whence the 'young Ratzinger nazi salute' was taken. It's quite clearly an image from the ordination of Joseph Ratzinger and his older brother: the two are about to lay on the floor, it's a part the ordination ritual.


  1. See this...

  2. Interesting.

    When I first saw the cropped photo, I also saw a less cropped version with the future Pope surrunded by about 5 other such dressed males all giving the salute.

    However that fuller photo has dissappeared from the internet and been replaced with a supposed fuller photo with just one other male, with both holding both palms down.
