Leading Bolivian bishop rips government

Catholic World News - 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.”
