While guest of Stalinist Castro regime that murdered countless Catholics outspoken Pope courageously condemns: U.S. “Embargo.”

APTOPIX Cuba Pope_admi

"...lack of material resources, a situation which is worsened when restrictive economic measures, imposed from outside the country, unfairly burden its people,"

On the other hand:

«The history of Bolshevism, now half a century old, clearly demonstrates that the Church should make no conciliatory gesture.»
(Cardinal Jozef Mindszenty, in his memoirs pub. 1974)

And regarding the Pope's backdrop during his Havana speech:

“I am not Christ or a philanthropist, vieja. I am all the contrary of a Christ… In fact, if Christ himself stood in my way, I, like Nietzsche, would not hesitate to squish him like a worm.”
(Che Guevara in a letter to his mother)

    But, but, I don't understand??? The Vatican continuously says--when criticized for not meeting with the Ladies in White--that they didn't meet with them, because the Pope was on an evangelical trip. So, then, why did he criticize the embargo? I guess that the embargo falls within the realm of evangelism [dripping with sarcasm]

  • Mr. Mojito

    So the leader of 1 billion Catholics sees nothing wrong with giving a speech in front of a 100 foot tall Che Guevara face!

    No wonder MerCHEdes Benz thought he'd make a good advertising logo?!? Would RATzinger be cool with giving a speech in front of a huge Mao statue? Or what about Hitler? (rhetorical)

    The one good thing about this is that his failure to meet with dissidents is so inexcusable, he has lost the respect of any moral person. So guilt by association, the fact that he speaks against the U.S. embargo means the "embargo" should look pretty good to any moral person.

    Now, remember, this was a strictly pastoral visit, not political. Just keep repeating that. It worked for Goebbels.
