Three Popes Make Same Mistake in Cuba

Sunday, September 20, 2015
Sunday's Mass by Pope Francis in Havana was -- by far -- less attended than that of his predecessors, Popes John Paul II in 1998 and Benedict XVI in 2012.

Perhaps that's because the Cuban people have seen the same script play out twice before, whereby the Pope visits Cuba, coddles the Castros, leaves and all remains the same -- with a bunch of new dissidents arrested.

Ironically, the Obama Administration argues for engagement with the Castros -- yet three Popes have kowtowed to the Castros with no success.

Perhaps they should change tactics and instead cast their lot with the oppressed and downtrodden.

For "the Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble." Psalm 9:9.
