Venezuelan bishops rap 'totalitarian' tendencies of Maduro regime
Catholic World News - April 03, 2014
The Catholic bishops of Venezuela have accused the government of “brutal repression” of political protesters, rekindling a long-term conflict between the Catholic hierarchy and the government.
Archbishop Diego Padron Sanchez of Cumana, the president of the Venezuelan bishops’ conference, said that the regime of President Nicolas Maduro is promoting “a totalitarian-style system of government, putting in doubt its democratic credentials.”
The Catholic bishops of Venezuela clashed frequently with the late Hugo Chavez, whose government the prelates accused of the same totalitarian tendencies.
