The hand of God lets go of Cuba and Cubans
The hands that today will reach out to the pope in Cuba
At the halfway point of the pope’s visit to Cuba, we can confirm that the hand of God has let go of Cubans and Cuba. That hand, that exists, that today clutches and comforts others.
The tongue kiss between Benedict XVI and the Castro brothers – which will continue today with a visit to Fidel – only confirms that the Catholic Church does not endeavor for the establishment of liberties for Cubans. It has other purposes: to consolidate its power under the roof of the Revolutionary Armed Forces and the dynasty that illegally occupies the throne on that island.
For that reason, it is absurd to ask the pope to strive for democracy since the Vatican is nothing more than an absolute monarchy, a non-democratic state. In this day in age, it has more in common with Castroism than with democratic states, which is the model and future we yearn for in this country.
