Might wish to make a little wardrobe adjustment. . .your anti-Catholic bigotry is showing.
Catholic hierarchy picked the leaders for Mexico. First was the Tratado de Cordova when the Virey Donaju gave Iturbide the Divine Right to be emperor. It was nice that Benito Juarez inclinced towards a more lay gov’t. Does this make me anti Catholic...okay. Tri Garantia of 1828 Iguala, All Mexicans by law had to be Catholic. Dec. 4th, 1860, by Presidential Degree of Benito Juarez Freedom to chose your religion. Sorry if the facts get in the way of your world view.
