Cuban Cardinal Jaime Ortega to visit Omaha… yes, Omaha

Castro dictatorship spokesperson and Cuban Archbishop, Cardinal Jaime Ortega y Alamino, will be visiting Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska (yes, Omaha) to receive an honorary law degree and talk to the students and faculty about life in Cuba. No doubt, the Cardinal will tell them how the embargo makes it difficult for him to import some of the great wines produced in California for the wine and cheese parties they throw for Raul Castro.

Catholic Cardinal from Cuba to speak in Omaha and receive honors from Creighton University

OMAHA, Neb. — A Catholic cardinal from Cuba will speak in Omaha about what life is like on the communist island.

Havana Cardinal Jaime Ortega has served as archbishop in Cuba for nearly 30 years. He will speak on Creighton University’s campus at 4:30 p.m. on May 12.

Ortega helped bring the Pope to Cuba in 1998, and he has helped secure the prison release of a number of pro-democracy journalists and dissidents. He is only the second Cuban to become a cardinal.

The speech is free but seating will at Creighton’s Harper Center is limited, so the university is encouraging people to register online beforehand at

Ortega will also receive an honorary law degree at Creighton’s commencement ceremony on May 14.

  1. I remember years ago when this pathetic farce of a cardinal came to New Jersey, a Cuban woman asked him to bless the dissidents and he FLAT OUT SAID NO!

    On the other hand, when castro was sick, Ortega said a mass in his name. Perhaps, he’ll say a mass in the honor of the castro brothers while in Nebraska?

  2. I vaguely remember Ninoska Perez on the radio telling of a similar experience with him when he visited Miami. The guy is disgusting in so many ways.
