Castro, Inc. boasts of upholding freedom of religion, but this is just another of its innumerable lies, eagerly believed by most earthlings.
The real truth is that Castro, Inc. does not allow anyone to believe in any power higher than the state itself. And this is a fundamental principle of Marxist spirituality. And don’t let anyone fool into believing that Marxism isn’t really a religion.
Loosely translated from Marti Noticias:
Cuban authorities summoned and threatened evangelical pastor Yasser Caraballo on Monday to desist from carrying out a religious act in a rural area of ??Sancti Spíritus.
Caraballo, 40 years old. told Radio Martí that, when attending the police summons at the El Vivac unit, in the provincial capital, an officer who identified himself as Damián threatened to take him to prison if he went to pray on a hill near the city, along with to other religious and parishioners.
“He told me to prepare a brush and paste, that if I went to pray in the mountains they could put me in jail,” Caraballo told Radio Martí.
In relation to what happened, the religious wrote on his social networks: “I thought that on January 1, 1959, when the revolution triumphed, the rural guard helmets had been exterminated; I got confused, officer Damián is worse than them”.
“This is not the first time that they have called us, consecutively, with the purpose of intimidating and attacking us, because they say that one goes to the mountains with the purpose of carrying out a counterrevolution. But, simply, we go to a place, a hill, a mountain, a mount, and there we pray, and that is what they did not want us to do,” explained Caraballo.
The pastor added that, in the end, they decided to go because of his religious conviction. “We went and now… waiting for what might happen,” he stressed.
On different occasions, the Cuban regime has harassed and threatened evangelical religious in Cuba. An example of this is the exiled pastor Alain Toledano, a critic of the prevailing system on the island.
