Venezuelan cardinal: ‘stop murderous violence’

March 03, 2015

Following the shooting of a 14-year-old boy by police, Cardinal Jorge Uroso of Caracas has called upon security forces to “stop murderous violence.”

The prelate called upon the government of President Nicolás Maduro to “prohibit the use of lethal force to control demonstrations,” according to a Fides report.

“We must overcome attitudes such as the desire of easy wealth and corruption, political pride, arrogance and lust of power, selfishness, laziness, hatred, and violence,” Cardinal Uroso added. “And we have to save the principles of legality, legitimacy, and morality that support the fabric of social life.”
