Thats the beauty of news! No matter what is printed you can interpret it in any way you like and it is as likely to be the truth as any other interpretationI don't believe every word I read, whatever the source. The quotes attributed to him do seem rather at odds with this letter...
"They took me away from my family and stuck me in a medieval situation in which I suffered a great deal," said Torres, 24, describing how he was whisked from obscurity in Granada to a monastery in southern India. "It was like living a lie," he told the Spanish newspaper El Mundo.
Perhaps he was mis-quoted or looks bad out of context?
