Mexican drug cartel commandos kidnapped to Catholic priests, tied them up and slaughtered both of them. Here is the report:
Two priests kidnapped this morning from a church in Poza Rica, Veracruz, were executed following their abduction.
Alejo Nabor Jiménez and José Alfredo Juárez de la Cruz were snatched by armed commandos from Nuestra Señora de Fátima Catholic church, triggering a search operation by state police and the Mexican Army.
Their bodies were found at one o’clock this afternoon near the Papantla-Poza Rica highway at a place known as Devil’s Curve in the municipality of Papantla.
Their hands and feet had been bound and they had been shot several times with high-caliber rifles.
A third man, a church official, was also kidnapped but was located alive but bruised after he reportedly escaped.
A report earlier this year said 40 Catholic priests were murdered in Mexico in the last 10 years. The Catholic Multimedia Center (CCM) said crimes against priests soared during the Felipe Calderón administration, when 25 lost their lives.
Fifteen had been killed in the first three years of President Enrique Peña Nieto’s term, and two were missing, the report said.
An analysis in February by InSight Crime, a crime research organization, suggested that priests who teach messages of social justice and peace are likely to become direct targets of organized crime gangs.
A priest at CCM said an activist role can put them on the front line. “They defend migrants, they’re against drug trafficking,” said Omar Sotelo. “And they often know who the criminals are, having seen them grow up in the towns.”
Some will therefore see the priests as a threat, he said.
Mexico is, right now, in a state of despotism more severe than that of the Calles regime, against which Catholics fought in the Cristero War. Mexico is the most dangerous nation on the Western Hemisphere to be a Catholic priest. The narcos are all devil worshippers and occultists, they hate the Catholic Faith and want to utterly uproot it, for they cannot fully take over Mexico spiritually and culturally unless they destroy the biggest obstacle, and that is the Church. I did a whole documentary on this subject, and I encourage you to watch it and to tell as many people about it as possible:
