Solalinde said the bishop had asked him to leave the shelter by November:
"This how he put it, that I was a protagonist. He is a conservative for sure and that's no problem, the problem is that with his power he does to me what no criminal group had been capable of... I don't know if there is a hidden motive... I can fight against cartels but not against the Church," he said in an interview with El Universal.It seems the bishop of Tehuantepec got cold feet: In today's El Universal he said that he had never told Solalinde such a thing, and that it was a strange misunderstanding.
Let's hope it is.
Whoever is right here, I'll let Solalinde have the final word:
I do not think this is very evangelical. I was told to devote myself to the poor in my free time only, but the poor should get more than 'leftovers.' So I will not take a parish.
