Editorials blast Cuban dissidents’ criticisms of cardinal

Catholic World News - May 24, 2012

In separate editorials, two Catholic magazines associated with the Archdiocese of Havana ripped Cuban dissidents and exiles who have criticized Cardinal Jaime Ortega y Alamino for not being more vocally opposed to the Castro regime.

“It is not just a matter of personal attacks … but of a war against an entire evangelical line that aspires to changes that are positive and serene, gradual and inclusive, orderly and peaceful,” stated one editorial.

The cardinal “is not accepted by many who, full of hatred and prejudices and in some cases even with very little political intelligence, prefer to topple the current government and achieve a triumph that again excludes the adversaries,” the editorial added.

“This type of victory could lead us to political and economic change, but not toward the national balance we need,” it continued. “Many times its promoters seem bent on excluding all those who … support or have supported the leadership of the revolution.”
