The disgrace that is Pope Francis’ close relationship with Cuba’s murderous dictator

There’s no nice way to put it: Pope Francis has made a conscious choice to befriend a murderous communist tyrant and abandon the oppressed Cuban people. It is truly abominable.

Julio Shiling writes in El American:

The Pope’s Relationship with Cuba’s Dictator Is a Disgrace to Christianity

It is morally reprehensible for anyone, especially the titled head of the world’s largest Christian church, to consider a vile tyrant and the system he helped build, a “friend”

JORGE MARIO BERGOGLIO, the Bishop of Rome who adopted the papal name of “Francis”, continues to publicly demonstrate that he is closer to Marx than to Christ. This time, similar to other occasions, it is showcased with Cuba. This past Monday marked the first-year anniversary of the 11th of July Cuban Uprising. On that momentous occasion, hundreds of thousands of Cubans protested for basic natural rights and demanded the end of communist tyranny. The actions of those two days of mass demonstrations throughout the island were met with the customary sadistic exercise of state terrorism by the ruling Marxist-Leninist dictatorship. Pope Francis adamantly stepped forward, again, and served as a premier apologist for the criminal Castro regime, illegitimately in power since 1959.

Univision’s María Antonieta Collins and Valentina Alazraki interviewed the Supreme Pontiff that very day. They requested from the Pope a message to the Cuban people. The obvious relevance of the reporter’s solicitation was the ensuing barbaric crackdown carried out by Castro-Communism in the aftermath of 11J, a tragedy that is still in motion. Moreover, the overarching fact that the same regime has held absolute power for over 63 years was important.

This conveyed, to the figurative leader of the Catholic Church, a golden opportunity to distance himself from previous shameful moral lapses. Pope Francis would be able to potentially expiate his sins for coddling up atheistic and materialist communist regimes. The sovereign of the Vatican state, however, just could not do it. Bergoglio could not break his umbilical cord with Marxism. Not even at his 85 years of age.

“I love the Cuban people very much. I had good human relations with Cuban people”, Pope Francis said. Then barefacedly, bearing no sign of embarrassment or sense of moral prudence and sidelining his role as the temporal high figure of Roman Catholicism, Bergoglio added and confessed that “with Raúl Castro, I have a human relationship.” During the interview, the pope emphasized that Cuba “is a symbol” and “has a great history.” By “Cuba” the chief pontiff really means the communist Cuban Revolution, its regime, and what it has done and does to promote global socialism. This is abominably scandalous. The Bishop of Rome has disgraced himself again. But, more importantly, he betrays the institution he represents, the faith he is supposed to uphold, and above all else, lucidly reveals his impious credentials.

Dictator Raúl Castro was personally responsible for dozens of arbitrary executions of fellow guerrillas during the campaign to overthrow the authoritarian regime of Fulgencio Batista. Once in power, Bergoglio’s Cuban friend directly commandeered the mass killings of hundreds of Cubans without any due process. The communist regime that was installed by the Castro’s has murdered thousands of people in Cuba, imprisoned hundreds of thousands of its citizens at different intervals, destroyed millions of lives, and pillaged billions of dollars worth of property.

  1. This pope is fine with what he is, which is why he’s so open about it. He’s not so much Machiavellian as a true believer, only not in what he’s supposed to believe. As I said in my post about this interview at, he evaded addressing the 11J protests and their aftermath and made a declaration of faith instead–faith in Cuba as a “revolutionary” symbol and its “great history,” meaning since 1959.
