  •  Argentina is one of the most Catholic countries... (8+ / 0-)

    ...in the world and Latin America. And yet, it's statistics on income and wealth inequality are nothing to brag about (even when compared to Uruguay next door, the least religious country in Latin America).

    Argentina, this bastion of Catholicism, was the epicenter of the Dirty War, the worst atrocity in the New World after the Native American massacres and genocides and slavery.  30,000+ people were disappeared, many dumped into the sea from planes still alive.

    So if Catholicism was effective at dealing with poverty or human rights Argentina would be a light in the darkness rather than the darkness itself.

    Daily Kos an oasis of truth. Truth that leads to action.
