28. Excommunicating Hitler would have sent a message that may have lead to many more deaths..
Edited on Fri Sep-17-10 04:55 PM by pnwmom
Pius made the judgment that the possible benefit wasn't worth the serious risk.

And I still don't see what difference an ex-communication would have made. The U.S. wouldn't have intervened any sooner just because Pius ex-communicated Hitler.
