Easter week in Venezuela: the Church says it as it is

There was a legend within chavismo that the Cardinal Urosa, the newest Venezuelan one, was not anti Chavez, that they could talk to him. Well, it seems that the wishful thinking was perhaps not even wishful thinking: a totally unfounded nincompoopery.

Yesterday Cardinal Urosa gave two declarations that leave no doubt at which side the Venezuelan Catholic Church stands: not with Chavez, no matter how much he keeps trying the ridicule argument that Jesus was Socialist of the XXI century. In short, highlights:
Jesus was not a political leader and can never be considered as such by anyone.

It is for the government to address the insecurity and criminality wave which is affecting all of us in Venezuela.

Judicial trials against opposition figures are unnecessarily long and twisted.
Read some of it in English here.

This is an anti Chavez/chavismo blog, Readers have made up their minds long ago. Trying to prove us wrong is considered a troll. Still, you are welcome as a chavista to post if you want to explain us coherently as to why chavismo does this or that. We are still waiting for that to happen.
Insults and put downs are frowned upon and I will be sole judge on whether to publish them.
