"...difficile est saturam non scribere. Nam quis iniquae tam patiens urbis, tam ferreus, ut teneat se..." " is hard not to write Satire. For who is so tolerant of the unjust City, so steeled, that he can restrain himself... Juvenal, The Satires (1.30-32)

I THINK this comes under the heading of muscular Christianity in action. I love the last line of the article: Guerrero is one of the poorest and most violent states in Mexico. When you live in a place where the parish priest gets crocked to the point where he pulls a pistol and shoots the mayor and his son during a religious festival, then I'd say that line qualifies as a masterpiece of understatement.
