.- Auxiliary Bishop Darwin Andino of Tegucigalpa said this week that little attention should be given to the insults spouted by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, who is “a poor man who does not know how to measure his words.”

Speaking to the Honduran daily El Heraldo, Bishop Andino recalled that Chavez “has no power to send anyone to heaven or to hell,” as that power belongs to God. In addition, he said, “the Lord has snatched us out of hell,” which he said “is not a place, it is a state in which a person can be, a nation can be in hell.”

With regards to the insults of Venezuelan president, Andino noted that Cardinal Oscar Andres Rodriguez of Tegucigalpa “ignored these things.”  “And I think that there is no need to give credit to the words because of where they are coming from or to the mouth they have come out of.  Where do they come from? From a poor man who does not know how to measure his words, and we don’t need to pay attention to the words he says,” Bishop Andino underscored.
