"Manipulation" of Church and State

The US Government shows preference to Roman Catholic Church and it's leaders. Supports them through "free trade" and then sits idly as "evangelicals" are targeted in Latin America by the "Chavez Model" of picking fights with the Churches to discredit them. This is an analysis of the cables recently released and found on #cablegate, specifically; #09VATICAN122, #06VATICAN60, and #09GUAYAQUIL125.
