“Pope” Francis and Fidel Castro
THOMAS DROLESKEY writes at Christ or Chaos:
The nonagenarian mass murdering tyrant, Fidel Castro has died. He was an unrepentant Communist revolutionary. He was an atheist. He sanctioned terror and death by firing squads before his takeover of Cuba on January 1, 1959, and thereafter, noting that he handed over the presidency of Cuba on February 24, 2008, to his partner in crimes against God and man, his brother Raul Castro. Various counts of the executions conducted by the Castro regime number between 85,000 and 100,000. Countless other thousands were tortured and imprisoned. Hundreds of thousands fled from Cuba in the initial aftermath of the Communist takeover, and many others still flee from this “people’s (one-party) democracy every year.
Although Jorge Mario Bergoglio was very friendly to the late murderer, I was heartened to see the following statement from him on Saturday morning, November 26, 2016, the Feast of Saint Sylvester the Abbot and the Commemoration of Saint Peter of Alexandria:
“On the feast of Saint Catharine of Alexandria, there died and descended into Hell the Grand Communist Murder and Tyrant, former President of Cuba, called Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz, who for more than fifty-eight years had been waging war cruelly against the Christian faith, his own people, and the nations of the Americas. All Christendom in general takes great pleasure in this death, for no one can imagine the great terror that barbarous despot had instilled in the hearts of all Christians, because of the lands he had terrorized, and those he would seek to gain each day. All Bishops are to hold held great processions through their cities, and to offer sacrifices, and many other devotions and alms, because it pleased God to deliver Christendom from so mighty an enemy.”
As readers can recognize quite readily, that message of jubilation upon the death of a murderous tyrant was not issued by Jorge Mario Bergoglio.
No, the message above is based upon the following summary of the reaction in the Christian world to the death of Mohammed II on the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, September 14, 1481: Read More »
