Cuba’s Catholic Church begins offering ‘business classes’

http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTZgLMyzx738VAvhgqBKyfFuFI6uK8aQVhN9WeRz-32bKbxn2eu

Apparently doing its best to help Cuba's repressive and diabolical Castro dictatorship carry out its farcical economic reforms, Cuba's Catholic Church under the leadership of Cardinal Jaime Ortega has begun to offer Cubans "business classes." These classes will purportedly teach Cubans how to operate a "business" within the confines of the oppressive Castro regime's onerous regulations and confiscatory tax policy as well as how to avoid upsetting the dictatorship by actually expressing any real freedom.

No word yet on when Cuba's Catholic Church will begin offering classes on being a Christian and helping those who are oppressed and enslaved.

Via the AP in ABC News:

Catholic Church Opens Business Classes in Cuba

Cuba's Catholic Church says it has launched classes aimed at training aspiring entrepreneurs to open and run small businesses permitted by the country's new program of economic reforms.

The Havana Archdiocese said in its official magazine that it is running three-month workshops and a two-year degree program taught by clergy members on the basics of private business, including sourcing of materials, accounting and tax regulations.

The Catholic Church has been barred from participation in the Communist-run nation's system of universal free education, despite requests that it be allowed to run schools as it does in other countries.

In 2010, President Raul Castro began opening Cuba's economy to limited forms of private enterprise, including sections of the real-estate and automobile markets.
