CWN Editor's Note: This article, strongly critical of the regime of Daniel Ortega and its persecution of the Church, offers words of praise for liberation theology, which was the subject of two instructions by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (1984, 1986).

The article also questions Pope Francis’s quiet approach to Nicaragua: its author, Santiago Ramos, asks, “When does an irenic neutrality tip over into complicity with an evil regime?”
