Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez wiped tears from his face as he pleaded for life in his fight against an undisclosed cancer at a Catholic mass in his home state of Barinas.
... "If this was necessary, may it be welcome," Chavez said, who wore a white T-shirt under a blue and white track suit. "But I ask God to give me life, however painful. I can carry 100 crosses, your crown of thorns, but don't take me yet. I still have things to do."

My thoughts exactly!!
"Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy."
Heartfelt prayers for his soul.
Only two types of people ever idolize Che. First is the ignorant (they can be excused for their stupidity) and the other is a person of pure evil.
Hugo, what one are you?
Chestnuts roasting on a open fire.Oops,wrong holiday season!
Odds are he won't
Partial transcript of 1985 video interview of KGB defector Yuri Alexander Bezmenov....
"...now occupying the positions of power in the Government, civil service, business, mass media, educational system. You are stuck with them. You cannot get rid of them. They are contaminated, They are programmed to think and react to certain stimuli in a certain pattern. You cannot change their mind even if you expose them to authentic information, even if you prove that white is white and black is black you still cannot change the basic perception and illogical behavior. In other words, these people, the process of demoralization is complete and irreversible..."
The Church ignoring the behavior of it's sheep is one of the biggest problems in church today. The church in Corinth took pride in a member that was living in sin openly, but Paul told them to confront him with his sin and if he didn't repent, to abandon him. The Church being indifferent to its members is not doing them or the church any good. It is counter productive for a dictator to murder his people while praying to God. The church should call them on their sin. That isn't politics, that's Christian. By ignoring someone's sin, you allow them to twist the message of Christ. If you live in sin, you shouldn't be able to claim Christ. You haven't repented if you justify your sin as the will of God. The Catholic Church is chock full of people that vote for sodomites, baby killers, thieves, and murderers. If you don't like the teachings of the church, then be something else.
If the Church came out strong against these dictators, maybe they would become more Christ like.
If I am blessed enough to arrive there, I hope to see Christopher Hitchens. He had many TRUE friends (those who wished for his salvation) praying for him. God is merciful, and hears the prayers of true believers.
On the other hand, histrionics and crocodile tears aren't worth much at the judgment.
well, the two are not incompatible. Render his soul to God and render it to Him quickly :)
