Quote of the day

From Enrique Del Risco, referring to an email from the recently deposed editors of Cuba's "Espacio Laical" (Lay Space):

Al principio me recordó aquella frase de Borges: "Quienes dicen que el arte no debe propagar doctrinas suelen referirse a doctrinas contrarias a las suyas". Pero de atender con cuidado a ese fragmento la Iglesia cubana se divide entre quienes están con el gobierno y quienes no quieren nada con la oposición.

At first it reminded me of that favorite saying from Borges: "Those who say that art should not propagate doctrines are usually referring to doctrines contrary to their own." But upon careful reading of that fragment, the Cuban Church is divided among those who are with the government and those who do not want anything to do with the opposition.
