"to implore beloved late leader Hugo Chavez for protection from the evils of capitalism."
Pagans always seem to be childish in their ideology. To actually think that some sinner, some politician or some celebrity can receive prayer and bring about a solution to their worldly problems is ridiculous. But these are socialists and they believe in the power of mortals. We saw it in other communist regimes where the authorities are seen to provide the guidance for the people to think, say and do what they are told. It is sad really but also it is an eye opener to the Christian since it reveals what life and thinking is like without the grace of God. Under the dominion of Satan and sin the mortal is ignorant and blind.
