Monsignor Mario Moronta, the bishop of the San Cristóbal diocese, took issue with President Hugo Chávez, who called Jorge Cardinal Urosa Savino, the Caracas archbishop, "unworthy and troglodyte."

The top representative of the Catholic Church in Andean Táchira state does not think demeaning Cardinal Urosa Savino is a good idea. "The fact that I do not agree with some people does not entitle me to disqualify them."

He voiced solidarity and friendship towards Cardinal Urosa Savino and stressed that no matter their different opinions, the unity has not broken.

Moronta said that he was not looking forward to become a cardinal.

The behind-the-scenes of the events of April 11, 2002

Alarmed because of the emotional breakdown suffered by his ally and his destiny; Fidel Castro requested asylum for deceased Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez in Madrid back on April 11, 2002. "The story had been much darker and more entangled than what some people's imagination has wanted to believe in and disclose," former Spain's President, José María Aznar, upholds in his autograph book published by late 2013.
