Mexican bishops decry corruption
February 19, 2015
Stating that “the gravity of the problem demands radical and immediate solutions,” the Mexican Episcopal Conference has issued a statement denouncing corruption.
“The poor are those who pay the price of corrupt politicians, businessmen, and churchmen who neglect pastoral duties,” the bishops said in their February 17 statement. “Hospitals without medicine pay, patients without treatment pay, children without education pay.”
“Making our own the concerns of our people, we urge legislators, government at all levels, political parties to make resolute and committed efforts to eradicate corruption which causes so much suffering and undermines trust,” the bishops added.
