Venezuela’s Chavez attacks bishops … again

Venezuela is on the fast road to becoming just another Third World dictatorship, with Hugo Chavez a junior Fidel Castro. The Church alone stands between him and the seizing of absolute power. The pattern of their disputes goes something like this: Bishop says Chavez is eroding democracy by his dictatorial moves. Chavez responds that the bishops are in a conspiracy against him and that are tools of the devil.

Thus, today Chavez accused Cardinal Rosario Castillio of conspiring against him.

“This is part of a provocation, part of a conspiracy, there is nothing innocent about this. It is a plot to destabilize the country,” Chavez said on his weekly Sunday broadcast. “I demand the Catholic hierarchy distance themselves from this … the least we can expect is for you to reject this man’s comments,” he said.

So what did Castillo say that was so awful?
