The Catholic Church again expressed “concern” about the increase in crime and insecurity during the opening of the 156th Episcopate Permanent Committee Summit presided by Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio. Read full article
An attempt at weakening a democratically elected progressive regime. What is the Church thinking, does it believe people still think it is a fair institution? Does it think people take this sort of criticism as a sincere manifestation of worry about the country's situation? The Church has a history of support for right-wing regimes, even dictatorial ones. And, covertly or not, they oppose progressive regimes. They do so because such regimes don't align with the Church's social values, something that - in the Church view at least - weakens its clout in civil society.
I don't understand your comment are you saying they are lying or that they need to keep quiet?
Unlike the USA, which we have a clear separation between Church and State, in Argentina the Catholic Church is a very powerful force. Signing a law for sma sex marriages...for the Church and majority of Catholics it is an abomination.
The Kirchners are not a progressive government, like many would think. Looking back at the seventies they...and a few other characters like the defense minister and company were the ones de-estabilising the country with terrorist attacks and so on ...and so on.
I hope there is enough political power in the Church and political groups to defeat the Kirchner's in the next election. Their economic and international policies make no sense. That's for the benefits of Argentina and many other countries .....yes, inclusing the Falklnads and the UK.
Direct from the Argentina constitution: Section 2.- The Federal Government supports the Roman Catholic Apostolic
It looks like criminals are getting much more brazen. Taking a whole building and holding people hostage in a downtown condo building while robbing them is incredible. Funny how they escaped while the building was surrounded it sounds like another Police set up to me. I wonder what was really in that building?
INSECURITY IS A FACT no matter who stress it. Progressive regime? I don't think so. Actually it seems that in this so called progressive regime insecurity is a kind of domestic policy.
Maybe the powers that be think that by maintaining insecurity, people´s minds might forget the other major problems in Argentina today.
insecure about being insecure?
This is what I'm saying: whatever the fact of the matter is, the Church's intention is political only. It's not the first time it's been saying those things.
Don't you think yours is a biased comment? I'm sorry but I do. The Church (or whoever) stress the fact of insecurity, emphasizes what is indubitable true. No political intention, only the aseptic reality. If that reality is no good for the government, please don't kill the messenger
So a 300% increase in violent crime in BA in the last quarter is nothing to talk about? I would think that ir is something the Church should be talking about since it concerns their community.
