Mexican bishops rap government policies, demand deeper reform

Catholic World News - May 02, 2014

The Catholic bishops of Mexico have issued a sharp criticism of government policies, the Fides news service reports.

The bishops raised concerns about a series of government reform programs, questioning “how useful will they be, especially for those who have already been definitively marginalized.” In their statement the bishops said that a more profound reform is needed: a reform of “the mind and the heart” and a revival of conscience. Without such change, the Mexican bishops said, the country will not “overcome the intolerable inequalities and social injustices, we will continue to read statistics and hear news about kidnapping, human trafficking, organized crime which go unpunished, violence and decapitated bodies found in clandestine moats.”
