Chavez Blasts Catholics

From Herald Wire Serives:

President Hugo Chávez on Sunday accused Venezuelan Roman Catholic leaders of betraying the interests of the country's impoverished majority.

Squeezing his eyes shut and clutching an image of Jesus Christ, Chávez asked God ''to forgive the Catholic hierarchy for having forgotten to favor the poor'' and aligning itself ``with the darkest interests of Venezuela's capitalist oligarchy.''
