Update on Emil Floris and the sermon in Slovakia

There has not been much in the media about the comments made by Fr Emil Floris in Slovakia several weeks ago.  Other than the JTA most media have been very quiet. 

The most comprehensive reports I have read that comes close to giving me a full English summary has been on the US based conservative Truth Revolt and the British atheist journal The Freethinker sites. Journalist Jeff Dunetz reported that Floris claimed the era of Slovakian-German collaboration was a period of freedom. This does not auger well and is at odds with both Pope Francis, the Catholic bishops of Slovakia and the Prime Minister, Robert Fico, who issued a formal apology for Slovakia's persecution of the Jews.

If any reader has an English translation of the sermon, I am prepared to post it.
