Holocaust denier leaves country

February 25, 2009|Times Wire Reports

A British bishop whose denial of the Holocaust embroiled the pope in controversy left Argentina, several days after the government ordered him out.

Pope Benedict XVI sought last month to help heal a rift with ultra-traditionalists by lifting a 20-year-old excommunication decree imposed on Richard Williamson and three other bishops. The pope has since insisted that Williamson recant his statements before he can be recognized as a Roman Catholic bishop.
