Leading Bolivian bishop rips government

March 31, 2014

The president of Bolivia’s episcopal conference strongly criticized the socialist government of President Evo Morales, who was first elected president in 2006.

“It is a shame that the people no longer have hope in this government,” said Bishop Oscar Omar Aparicio Céspedes, according to a Fides news agency report.

“Because of social decline and corruption,” he added, “society, the press, authorities, justice and the Church cannot remain silent.”
