Cuba: Attacks on religious freedom quadruple in 2012

Not only did 2012 bring increased attacks on political freedom in communist Cuba, the Castro dictatorship stepped up its attack on religious freedom as well, recording a four-fold increase in religious repression over 2011.

Mounting attacks on religious freedom in Cuba

Incidents of religious repression in Cuba quadrupled from 30 in 2011 to 120 in 2012, according to Christian Solidarity Worldwide, a British organization that monitors the persecution of Christians.

“While Roman Catholic churches reported the highest number of violations, mostly involving the arrest and arbitrary detention of parishioners attempting to attend church activities, other denominations and religious groups were also affected,” a spokesman for the organization stated.

“The number does not include the men and women who were arrested and imprisoned for the duration of Pope Benedict XVI’s visit in March which local human rights groups estimate to be upwards of 200,” he added.

    So much for the papal visit and that hideous nuncio [I forget his name] that rubs shoulders with raul, so much for the diabolical Jaime Ortega. These statistics just serve to underscore the obscene complicity of the church with the regime.
