Chavez pushing Venezuela toward totalitarianism, cardinal charges
Catholic World News - December 29, 2010
Cardinal Jorge Urosa-Savino of Caracas is expressing concern that a “totalitarian dictatorship” is developing under the leadership of President Hugo Chavez.
“If someone gets angry because the bishops note that there are political prisoners, if someone feels offended because we ask to respect the right to information, we are very sorry, but this is a postulate of the constitution,” the prelate said. “He who is at the wheel of the government must take into account the great responsibility he has, historically and before God. If they want to impose a totalitarian dictatorship, this would certainly be a terrible thing for Venezuela.”
