A key Jewish group in Argentina demanded that the Vatican remove a bishop accused of holding “anti-Semitic and racist positions.” The call by the DAIA umbrella group came after the national newspaper Pagina 12 reported last week that Bishop Antonio Baseotto had said in 1986 that Jews go into “big businesses with lots of ability and lack of moral principles,” adding, “It doesn’t matter the way they enrich themselves. If pornography is a good business, they sell pornography. If it’s drugs, they sell drugs.”
