Honduran bishops call for transparent elections
October 14, 2013
A peaceful and fair November presidential election will help correct Honduras’s image as a “violent and ungovernable country,” the nation’s bishops said in an October 9 message.
“We have watched with profound sorrow and compassion the serious deterioration in health, education, employment, and security,” the bishops stated, as they called for respect for the dignity of the human person and the common good.
The bishops called upon Catholics to participate actively in the election process and in organizations such as “parents’ associations, trade unions, [and] professional and business associations.”
