The church weighed in with four days to go before President Hugo Chavez, who is in Cuba recovering from cancer surgery, is supposed to be sworn in to a new six year term. Venezuela's Catholic church warned the government Monday it would be 'morally unacceptable' to override the constitution amid an intensifying crisis over Chavez's health. His vice president has argued that the swearing in can be delayed indefinitely, calling it a 'formality,' and that Chavez's current administration can continue in office until a new one can be sworn in.
