Plan to dig up Padre Pio attacked

Plan to dig up Padre Pio attacked (BBC News, Monday, 7 January 2008)

The second last paragraph reads 'The hands of the saint, who lived to the age of 81, often bled copiously. His followers said he bore the wounds of the crucified Christ.' There is no mention of the well-known and well-founded accusations he was a fraud. See e.g. Padre Pio 'faked his stigmata with acid'.

As usual, the BBC is more interested in not offending anyone than in the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
