Mexican cardinal: no superheroes on ballot in ‘06

.- The Archbishop of Mexico City, Cardinal Norberto Rivera Carrera, called on the people of Mexico to be realistic regarding the solutions to the country’s problems and to not expect miracles or superheroes in the coming 2006 presidential elections. “I don’t think there is a superhero in Mexico who will magically come to change things.  And to think that somebody will come to fix all of our problems is not a very realistic idea,” the cardinal told reporters.

On the other hand, referring to the wave a violence that has swept across the country, Cardinal Rivera noted that it was not the result of chance but of inequalities that society itself is nurturing.  “What I meant was that there is a violent reality in our families, in our places of work, of confrontation, that an educational system exists that is not teaching people who to live together,” he added.

Lastly, he called on Mexicans to strive to accept each others differences and to practice tolerance in order to foster an atmosphere of cooperation and tranquility.
