Letter: Intriguing evidence about Pope Francis

The Aspen Times printed my letter about His Holiness Pope Francis on Dec. 29. There is new evidence that the pope’s ancestors were Jewish and left Spain in the 15th century.

A recent article in the Financial Times says, “Jews expelled from Spain … could now claim Spanish citizenship.” Now, I have, from a reliable source, that Spain knows Pope Francis’ ancestors were Jewish and left Spain for Argentina. By offering citizenship to Jews, Spain can claim that Pope Francis is Spanish — not Argentine. Why? Because there has never been a Spanish pope, until now.
