Church Rejects Apology

Bishop Richard Williamson just can't get back into the Vatican's good graces. The ultra-conservative priest attempted a public apology after being exposed as a Holocaust denier, but the church deemed his words "too ambiguous," saying "the Bishop doesn't appear to respect the conditions" the Vatican set out for him. Williamson, whose excommunication was lifted only in January, has stated that Nazis under the Third Reich did not kill 6 million Jews, and that no one died in gas chambers.
