Chavez Calls Catholic Leaders “Morally Unacceptable”

In a you have to see it to believe it moment, Venezuelan Dictator and President Hugo Chavez, criticizes Roman Catholic leaders in his country as “morally unacceptable” after they called him on his attempt to re-write their constitution to strike out the term limits so he can remain in office.

Church leaders on Friday issued a strongly-worded statement accusing Chavez of seeking to concentrate power with an “authoritarian” proposal to overhaul the OPEC nation’s constitution that he helped rewrite in 1999.

“They say the reform is morally unacceptable – they are morally unacceptable,” Chavez said in a government press release sent out on Sunday night. “Those bishops that we have make us ashamed.”
