Some Great Company There Pugsley

Hugo Chavez celebrates Good Friday by asking God to save his life:

In a televised speech to the Catholic service in his home state of Barinas, Chavez cried and his voice broke as he eulogised Jesus, revolutionary fighter Ernesto “Che” Guevara and South American independence hero Simon Bolivar.

One a Jewish carpenter who preached love your fellow man, a mass murderer who preached killing your fellow man if he didn’t back the revolution, and a guy who could have been the South American Washington, but decided he needed to be a dictator instead.

“Give me your crown, Jesus. Give me your cross, your thorns so that I may bleed. But give me life, because I have more to do for this country and these people. Do not take me yet,” Chavez added, standing below an image of Jesus with the Crucifix.

You know, if I were God, I think I’d have a little trouble hearing.

  1. When I read this story I figured it was proof that the Christian God really is a merciful God.

    As evil as Satan is, even he doesn’t deserve to put up with Chavez for any longer than absolutely necessary.

  2. I don’t know if Hugo Chavez has ever built any shrines dedicated to Jesus Christ in Venezuela, but I do seem to recall reading that he has built at least two shrines dedicated to Che Guevara. Both of them were destroyed by angry Venezuelans shortly thereafter; one with a hail of gunfire, and the other one with an explosive device. There was a note left behind at one of these scenes that read, “”We do not want a monument to Che, he is not an example for our children.”
