Eyes on Venezuela

| No Comments

Latin America has a history of political unrest with violent results. Now tensions are rising between "President" Hugo Chavez and Cardinal Rosario Castillo.

From the good Cardinal:

"A government democratically elected seven years ago has lost its democratic path and shows signs of dictatorship, where all powers are in the hands of one person who exercises them in an arbitrary and despotic way,"

From the mild-mannered Chavez:

Chavez, who often brandishes a crucifix and evokes Christ when vowing to fight poverty, has clashed with Venezuela's Catholic leaders before, calling them a "cancer" and once branding Castillo a "coup-mongering bandit".

Let's pray we don't get more of these in the 21st century.
