The anti-religion crowd sure spends a lot of time and energy trying to make spiritual leaders look bad. (Really, Christopher Hitchens, a screed against Mother Theresa?) This is nothing new, of course, and neither is the reason for it: bringing down the saints is supposed to discredit the Church. A particular target of attention over the past few decades has been Pope Pius XII, the pontiff during World War II. He has been savaged for his supposed complicity with Hitler. What is the real story? I did a bit of research recently to find out.
