Chavez engaged in “circus” with insults against the Church, says archbishop


Archbishop Fernando Saenz Lacalle of San Salvador said this week people are “bored stiff” with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez’s insults against the Church and that they should not be given “much importance.”

Asked about Chavez’s comments that Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga was a “parrot” and an “imperialist clown,” Archbishop Saenz said Chavez was engaged in a “circus” and that although little importance should be given to his comments, it was significant that “a head of State insults a cardinal.”

“In any case, this has become so frequent that now it is boring,” he said.
