Cardinal Stepinac - war criminal? or a failed Christian?

Post by THECLASH » 02 Aug 2004 17:44

What was Stepinac's worst crime?:
1) He never protested against the slaughter of Yugoslavs by the NDH
2) He never dennounced the crimes of the NDH after the war
3) He considered cursing a worst sin than genocide
4) That he supported the regime of the NDH
5) The protection and help of escaping NDH war criminals at the end of World War II
6) He wouldn't leave Yugoslavia when asked by the government since he represented the genocide of Yugoslavia
==============================================
Did he directly help in the genocide of Yugoslavs?

Which law are each of the above six claims violations of?

We ask everyone who makes claims to provide sources and facts to back them up so please do so.

well I won't be here home for the next week or so but I bet anyone else can look up info on Stepinac. Note:The CAtholic Church in Croatia was the head of the killings at the begining of the NDH (not the camps but the random genocide).

THECLASH -- You posted several questions without providing any sources or citations to authority. When asked for information, you suggested that the readers look it up for themselves:
well I won't be here home for the next week or so but I bet anyone else can look up info on Stepinac.

You then added another inflammatory claim, which was also unsourced:
Note:The CAtholic Church in Croatia was the head of the killings at the begining of the NDH (not the camps but the random genocide).

We're not interested in that kind of rubbish here. See the H&WC section rules on questions, claims and proof at:

viewtopic.php?t=53962

Questions

Because the H&WC section is a research area of the forum, we ask the posters to be reasonably well-prepared, and not ask others for information which they could easily get for themselves. There are several excellent resources which should be consulted before posting a question. At the top of the thread index page of this section of the forum, there are a series of announcements and research "stickies" which may be helpful. The two FAQ announcements contain links to many topics which have frequently been discussed here. In addition, the forum has an excellent search engine of its own at:

search.php

For off-site searches, the engine of choice is the Google advanced search engine, which can be found at:

Claims and Proof

Undocumented claims undercut the research purposes of this section of the forum. Consequently, it is required that proof be posted along with a claim. The main reason is that proof, evidence, facts, etc. improve the quality of discussions and information. A second reason is that inflammatory, groundless threads attack, and do not promote, the scholarly purpose of this section of the forum.

This requirement applies to each specific claim. In the past, some posters have attempted to evade the proof requirement by resort to the following tactics, none of which are acceptable here:

A general reference to a website, or a book without page references; citations or links to racist websites; generalized citations to book reviews; and citations to unsourced articles.

Noncomplying posts are subject to deletion after warning.

You've had your warning. If you can't back up your allegations, don't bother to post them. This thread is locked.
