CWN Editor's Note: Continuing his campaign against Church leaders, Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro has called for prosecution of two Catholic bishops who have spoken out against corruption in his government, accusing them of “slander” against the regime. The bishops remarked that it is inexcusable, in an oil-rich country, that many people are desperate for food. In Commentary magazine, Sohrab Ahmari writes: “The Catholic Church cannot remain silent, nor can it equivocate, in the face of such abuse.”
