President Nicolás Maduro described as a “show” the words that a group of bishops made against members of the Bolivarian National Armed Forces (FANB), while calling for respect for the officials who are protecting the people and saving their lives in the midst of the torrential rains that have fallen in the national territory.
“There was a campaign led by bishops of the Catholic Church of the Andes against the Fanb, a truly miserable campaign by WhatsApp groups, by social networks, when our soldiers, our officers are kicking the mud, saving the innocent, helping those in need (…) who neither sleep nor see the family and They have been in the mud for 15 days, lifting mud, lifting stones; I come out in defense of the Fanb and I ask for the respect and support of the people of Mérida a la Fanb, enough of the miserable vile aggressions neither wash nor lend the tray and what they do is show. ”, said the head of state.
He stressed that at a time when the country needs a call to union and joint work to help those who need it most, these representatives of the clergy have come out in a selfish attitude to criticize the military who are working alongside the people.
“You have seen one of these old men wearing a cassock with a shovel, even helping a Merideño, nobody! And they go out rudely to make a show on social networks. If you are not going to help, do not get in the way, compadre and let them want to work to work, ”said the president.
