Rome (Fitzwire)--Rumors are flying about the whereabouts of  Pope Francis, who vanished hours after excommunicating all members of the Mafia during a visit to Calabria, Italy, a center for organized crime. Some suspect he was encouraged to join the Italian witness protection program and relocated with a new identity for his own safety. Yesterday rumors were rife that Pope Francis was rumored to be tango instructor in Budapest. Eyewitnesses in Budapest claim to have seen a man resembling the Pontiff volunteering at a refugee camp, a soup kitchen and an animal shelter.When pressed by reporters the Vatican issued a statement declining to reveal the Pope's whereabouts.
