It seems that in 2004, Francis (neé Jorge Mario Bergoglio) when confronted with an exhibition of provocative, church-negative art from Argentine artist León Ferrari in his archdiocese of Buenos Aires, was provoked, and publicly called for the show’s closure. Protesters invaded the cultural center where Ferrri’s retrospective was on display and smashed some of the work. The show was ordered closed on December 17, 2004 by a judge on the grounds that it  “wounded the sensibilities of Christians.”
