Argentine bishops apologize for failings during military rule

November 13, 2012

The bishops of Argentina have renewed an apology made in 2000 for the episcopate’s actions during the military dictatorship of Jorge Rafael Videla (1976-83).

“We share everyone’s pain and once again ask the forgiveness of everyone we failed or didn’t support as we should have,” the bishops said in a statement. The bishops, however, denied Videla’s recent claim that the Church was complicit in the human rights violations that took place under his regime.
