    PARIS (JTA)—A French human rights group says it will press charges against a Holocaust-denying British bishop.

    The International League Against Racism and Anti-Semitism said Wednesday in a statement that it would charge Richard Williamson with “contesting crimes against humanity” and denying the Holocaust in an article published in the German der Spiegel magazine and in a television interview.

    In an interview published Monday in der Spiegel, Williamson said he needed “proof” that the Nazis used gas chambers to murder Jews during the Holocaust, despite a recent request by Pope Benedict XVI that the rehabilitated bishop distance himself from such views.

    It is entirely reasonable and appropriate that a human person should be able to ask for proof, when he is being subjected to tyrannical demands to recant his personal beliefs. It is shocking in the extreme that anyone could imagine that this asking for proof is in any way “criminal”.

    The Bishop is a very brave man to stand up for the truth and freedom of speech and thought

    I don't know about France, but in Germany, it's illegal to claim the Holocaust never happened.

    What these Holocaust denial laws do is punish people for "thought crimes"

    It's legal to think them. Illegal to say them. It's a difference between Europe and America. Distributing Mein Kampf in Germany and other European countries is a $50000
    fine.
