Only the Cardinal's Politics Matter

Thursday, March 15, 2012
In response to the dissidents that have occupied a Havana church asking for Pope Benedict XVI to intercede on behalf of the human rights for the Cuban people, the Archdiocese of Havana said in a statement:

Nobody has the right to turn temples into political trenches.”

Yet, just last week, Cuban Cardinal Jaime Ortega held a Mass in support of Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez.

So perhaps the Archdiocese should consider clarifying its statement:

"Only the Cardinal has a right to use the temple for his politics."
