Cardinal admonishes bishop who participated in highway blockade in Honduras

.- The Archbishop of Tegucigalpa, Cardinal Oscar Andres Rodriguez, has admonished Bishop Luis Alfonso Santos of Copan for leading a blockade of the country’s highways in protest over a 1998 law which allowed foreigners to own as much as 34% of Honduran mines.

Together with Bishop Santos, several priests, students, agricultural workers, and others took part in the protest that closed three main arteries of the Pan American Highway in Copan for over 12 hours.

Speaking on local radio, Cardinal Rodriguez said, "A nation changes through dialogue and education, not by occupying highways, which belong to everyone." "The course the protestors took was wrong. I think Bishop Santos did not get all of the adequate information because you don’t repeal a law just because somebody is screaming out on the street," he said.

Likewise, he cautioned Bishop Santos "not to repeat that incident, because it appears somebody put a banana peel in his path to make him slip up."
