2. I don't know if I'd say horrible. It's kind of a mixed bag
Richard Dawkins pointed out that in Brazil and Chile in the 70's and 80's that they were an important anti-government (aka anti-military dictatorship) force.
El Salvador the scar Arnulfo Romero y Galdmez the Archbishop was murdered in his church as were many other priests and nuns
The Contras (you remember those freedom fighters) killed many nuns and priests

It's Argentina, Paraguay, Panama not so good.
I would mention that a lot of the anti-fascist support from the church came from many of the priests and bishops appointed prior to 1984.
I'm assuming that in Ecuador the history is the same as Paraguay

On a slightly different topic. If you get a chance (and haven't yet) check out the President of Uruguay. I was watching a program on him. Interesting guy
