.- The National Conference of Bishops of Brazil, which is holding its general assembly, announced that it will release a document on the political crisis affecting the country. During their first session, the bishops analyzed a traditional report on politics prepared by a group of laymen, with this year’s report focusing on the corruption that is plaguing the Worker’s Party.
The report notes that the scandal of corruption which is affecting the main leaders of the WP “has cause general commotion.” “What could never happen has happened. At first many refused to admit the intolerable reality and they alleged it was all about calumnies that are unfounded, but such an attitude flies in the face of common sense,” the report states.
The bishops are holding their annual meeting in the city of Indaiatuba, 99 kilometers northeast of Sao Paulo.
