Bolivia's president fuels Church-state tension, cardinal says

Catholic World News - October 10, 2011

Cardinal Julio Terrazas Sandoval of Santa Cruz, Bolivia has warned that the country’s President Evo Morales might “cross the line into the ridiculous” in his bid to present himself as the hero of the country’s indigenous people.

Cardinal Terrazas notes that Morales has raised tensions between the government and the Catholic Church with his calls for change on issues such as religious education in public schools and legal observance of Catholic holy days. The tensions were most evident in April 2009 when a bomb exploded at the cardinal’s residence.
