BUENOS AIRES – Argentine Archbishop Jorge Mario Bergoglio has only been Pope Franciscus I for just a few hours and already human rights activists and journalists are accusing him of ‘conspiracy’.

Reportedly, Bergoglio was involved with an incident that took place in the poor section of Buenos Aires in 1976 where two Jesuit priests were kidnapped during the first two months of Argentina’s military dictatorship.
The leaders of the Jesuit Orders had asked the two priests to halt their work, which was considered to be socialistic, in the projects of Buenos Aires in an attempt to avoid confrontations with the military. But when the two priests refused to comply they were reportedly kidnapped.
At that time Bergoglio was head of the Jesuit Order in Argentina. He reportedly told the military that the two priests did not work for the Jesuit Order any more, thereby clearing the way for the dictatorship to do with the priests as they saw fit.
Bergoglio has never responded to the accusation until a few years ago when he said that he aided a few ‘people’ with finding a hiding place.
He allegedly also assisted someone with crossing the Argentine border thereby helping that person escape from the military.
Bergoglio reportedly also asked the military about the whereabouts and conditions of the two Jesuits, who eventually were released by the dictatorship.
