Mexico, as it is for journalists, is the most dangerous place on earth for priests….
Dr. Mireles, Padre Goyo and Padre Pistolas
A priest went against the advice of the church and accused the governor of the central Mexican state of Guanajuato for providing military rifles to CJNG.
Father Alfredo Gallegos made the shocking allegations against Diego Sinhué Rodríguez while he celebrated an outdoors mass in Chucándiro, a town in the western state of Michoacán last Thursday.
‘The bishops tell me, ‘son they are going to kill you, don’t get into problems with the governor of Guanajuato because there are no more than 20 daily deaths and you can see it on the internet,’ Gallegos said. ‘Diego Sinhue stop playing dumb. You give AK-47s and bulletproof vests and leave the road unprotected for the bad guys and the [Jalisco] New Generation [cartel].’
The 69-year-old clergyman, who is also known as ”El Padre Pistola’, because he has always been known to hold service with a weapon by his side, said alleged that governor Sinhué ‘does not give the cops anything.’
Gallegos is a native of the Guanajuato municipality of Tarimoro but officiates masses at La Huananchita church in Chucándiro.
Guanajuato has been turned into the epicenter for cartel violence with no answer for a turf war between the Jalisco New Generation Cartel and its main rival, the Santa Rosa de Lima Cartel, dating back to December 2017.
