Maracaibo Archbishop José Luis Azuaje Ayala, president of the Venezuela bishops, published an August 20 note in defence of the deputy Vatican Secretary of State, Archbishop Edgar Peña Parra.
Venezuela-born Peña has repeatedly been accused of homosexual misconduct, but the note simply ignores the detailed accusations against Peña.
Instead it presents the worn-out Latin-American mantra that those criticizing Peña are bad and aim “at undermining the [shattered] credibility of Pope Francis.”
Latin-American prelates have a long history of lying in public like in the case of the Legion of Christ’s Father Marcial Macial, Cardinal Rodríguez Maradiaga, or Pope Francis himself.
