A member of Venezuela’s Socialist Party has rolled out a variation of the classic Christian “Lord’s Prayer” to implore beloved late leader Hugo Chavez for protection from the evils of capitalism. “Our Chavez who art in heaven, the earth, the sea and we delegates,” red-shirted delegate Maria Estrella Uribe recited on Monday at the PSUV party Congress. Viva Chavez!” she exclaimed to applause. Though Chavez died of cancer in March 2013, he remains omnipresent in Venezuela.
Blasphemy, cult of personality, and just further social[ist] degeneration.
