Surprise warning against church manipulation from Chuayffet

Emilio Chuayffet Chemor has been a quite unpredictable an erratic president of Mexico's Chamber of Deputies. Now he launched a warning that also came somewhat out of the blue: the "manipulation of consciousness" carried out by the Mexican catholic church.

According to Chuayffet, the Church has been a master in the exercise of power,
so therefore, we catholics want it far away, we do not want it to intervene in political life, because we know how far it can get and how it easily it can manipulate consciences and guide them in in its own favor, for its own interest."
Can't say I disagree to much with the analysis, though surprised to hear it from Chuayffet. Not all former governor of Mexico State (and former interior secretary) are as kowtowing to the Mexican church as, say, an Enrique Peña Nieto or a José Francisco Blake Mora.
