God's Gestapo. Father Von Wernich

Von Wernich appeared behind a reinforced glass shield, separate from courtroom spectators who were largely members of the Mothers of Plaza de Mayo human rights organisation. He was wearing a bulletproof vest** and a white clerical collar.

Velazco said that another prisoner, H├ęctor Baratti, before he disappeared, asked von Wernich what blame could be laid on his baby daughter Ana Libertad, born in captivity to his wife Elena de la Cuadra, when both Ana and her mother disappeared. "The sins of the parents shall be visited upon the children," the priest replied.

According to accounts given by young soldiers doing their military service, which was obligatory at that time, army chaplains used to say that killing a pregnant "subversive" woman was not a sin, as her baby would also be a "subversive." more

Such a charmer.

** Not putting his faith in the lord then?
