Pope Francis did not denounce me to Argentinian junta, says priest

Francisco Jalics, who was imprisoned for five months in the 1970s, says he and the new pope reconciled in 2000"

The Guardian, Wednesday 20 March 2013

..."I myself was once inclined to believe that we were the victims of a denunciation," Jalics said. "[But] at the end of the 90s, after numerous conversations, it became clear to me that this suspicion was unfounded. It is therefore wrong to assert that our capture took place at the initiative of Father Bergoglio."...

...The latest comments follow a less categorical statement that he made last week soon after the pope was chosen. In that earlier comment, he said he and Bergoglio had reconciled and "hugged solemnly" in 2000. But he also noted that he "could not comment on the role played by Father Bergoglio in these events".

...Argentinian critics of the pope have continued to accuse him of wrongdoing, based on documents and old testimonies of Yorio, who died several years ago. Jalics' failure to deny this added to their suspicions.

But in the latest statement, Jalics said "Some commentaries imply the opposite of what I meant."

By contrast, his words on Wednesday were unequivocal: "The fact is: Orlando Yorio and I were not denounced by Father Bergoglio."

That should end it, but all that stuff on the net is still on the net. Well be hearing about this story for the next 50 years ~ at a minimum.

In any case, the Argentinian government didn't need outside help to target folks for the air drops ~ afterwhich political life in that hapless country became less hectic.

The priest in this story didn't get airdropped either.

He stated it loud and clear which will stop any further “reports”. Agree, a lot of damage has already being done but we now have this to refute any future lies. TG, one of them was still alive.

I just noticed this pope is all over youtube as being the anti-Christ and mostly by socalled religious christians spurred by the book - Petrus Romanus.

Sad, but true. Especially as they shake their Bibles (from the Catholic Church) in our faces.

"... Bergoglio has not adequately addressed the close links that the church had with the dictatorship."

Adolfo Perez Esquivel (Human Rights Nobel prize winner) and Amnesty International (you know who they are; and BTW, neither are spokesmen/apologists for the Catholic Church, far from it) --- both state that Fr. Bergoglio had "no ties" with the military junta/dictatoship.

Not that it matters to the Enemedia. If he HAD ties, he'd be a damned rightist; if he opposed them, he'd be a damned leftist; and if he tried to save lives and bring about reconciliation, he'd be wrong for that, too.

Q.E.D.

We can also know that people who repeat this accusation are liars.
