Yeah, of course, as anyone knows, you can have critical thinking at age 13.
There's nothing in your post. It's just filled with hatred.
i did have critical thinking at the age of 13 (just like many kids during II WW had as well), but maybe it depends in what type of family you're raised in
ofc he was raised in this type of country as he was, and his family would suffer social consequences if they didn't support hitler when he was at the peak of power, but for instance in communist occupied poland there were also child organizations where children were sometimes even forced to belong, and they still refused to do it, and suffered in prisons for that (like my grandfather; two of his older friends were tortured to death for being local leaders to our traditional scout organization and refusing to succumb to the new, sovietized one.... it takes guts to not bend to the deadly system...to keep values ahead of your life)
my post was filled with pointing out the problematic selections. we don't talk about random priests, but popes. in the time when church is under so big critique me, as a catholic believer, i would like a pope to be just crystal clear just for the sake of general image which in these days of massmedia counts more than anything.
