The Pope is as much of a Marxist as Tim Keller…and that’s saying something.
As if the Jesuit pontiff couldn’t make it any clearer, the Vatican News press outlet posted celebratory comments lauding Fidel Castrol and the 60th anniversary of Cuba’s Communist Revolution.
You remember Fidel Castro, right? According to university studies, the death toll from Castro’s politically-motivated murders of his own people range upward of 141 thousand. Tens and tens of thousands of political dissidents were thrown in prison. More than 2 million Cubans fled as political refugees. The commies used Castro’s island nation to point missiles at the United States. For the sake of “human flourishing,” the Castro regime was hardly a thing worth celebrating.
Leftists and communists around the world were congratulating Cuba on New Years Day for the 60th anniversary of their brutal regime, and the Vatican followed with its own congratulations.
The Vatican news post celebrated the victory of the Castros:
The historic anniversary was celebrated with an official ceremony in which the former head of state and leader of the Cuban Communist Party, Raúl Castro, and the current president of the nation, Miguel Díaz-Canel, participated.
The Cuban Revolution celebrated its 60th anniversary this January 1, 2019. On the island, the historic anniversary was celebrated with a ceremony in Santiago de Cuba, in the cemetery of Santa Ifigenia, where Fidel Castro is buried, who died on November 25, 2016. To the main national forces on January 10, 1959, the dictator Fulgencio Batista fled 26 months of guerrilla war led by brothers Fidel and Raul Castro. From Santiago, Fidel Castro proclaimed the beginning of the revolution the victory of the counterculture.
The Vatican has been sympathetic with the Castro regime in Cuba since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, and with Cuba losing its financial and diplomatic backer, Castro had to turn to the Roman Catholic Church to replace Russia as their chief patron. Along with Francis’ well-documented Marxist beliefs, the celebration of the Communist Revolution in Cuba is just one more indication that the current Vatican is an enemy to both Democracy and Capitalism.
After outrage, the Vatican deleted the article and related posts, but not before people could screenshot them.
