Default Re: Pope Francis (Bergoglio) Criticised Pope Benedict XVI?

According to the daily mail there is a memo that suggests Cardinal Bergolio's collaboration with the regime, I am not sure what authenticity it holds:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...sts-junta.html

But the AP reports

Quote:
One [human rights case] examined the torture of two of [Bergoglio's] Jesuit priests — Orlando Yorio and Francisco Jalics — who were kidnapped in 1976 from the slums where they advocated liberation theology, which is the belief that Jesus Christ’s teachings justify fights against social injustices.

Yorio accused Bergoglio of effectively handing them over to the death squads by declining to tell the regime that he endorsed their work. Jalics refused to discuss it after moving into seclusion in a German monastery.

Both men were freed after Bergoglio took extraordinary, behind-the-scenes action to save them, including persuading dictator Jorge Videla’s family priest to call in sick so that Bergoglio could say Mass in the junta leader’s home, where he privately appealed for mercy. His intervention likely saved their lives, but Bergoglio never shared the details until [Sergio] Rubin interviewed him for the 2010 biography.

Bergoglio told Rubin that he regularly hid people on church property during the dictatorship, and once gave his identity papers to a man with similar features, enabling him to escape across the border.

Opponent of the war,Adolfo Perez Esquivel, a nobel peace prize winner says

Quote:
What Bergoglio tried to do was help where he could,” said Adolfo Perez Esquivel, who won the Nobel Peace Prize for defending human rights during the dictatorship.

“It’s true that he didn’t do what very few bishops did in terms of defending the human rights cause, but it’s not right to accuse him of being an accomplice,” Perez Esquivel told Reuters. “Bergoglio never turned anyone in, neither was he an accomplice of the dictatorship.”

My thought exactly. The Telegraph is good for nothing but to give Huffington Post a companion in intolerance.

No, they say it is a quote. We do not know that this is a true quote. They give no reference. I searched for the quote and found nothing earlier than 2012, and that was on dubious websites. Being on the internet does not make something true.
