"Clearly, the Church of Jesus Christ is not the same Church as the Cardinal's," she said. "Our exile is an example of solidarity and the ability of Cubans to reconcile. Then, which reconciliation is the Cardinal referring to? A reconciliation with the aggressors who continue to repress and commit crimes?"

I LIGER OMNI PRIME agree 100% with this statement!

As the former Pope warned us: Beware of the demons hiding within the Church!

I think we have one of them here.

"I think it is despicable that his severest criticisms are always directed at the exile community and the victims, not against the assailants," said Perez Castellon. "But even worse is that he used Monsignor Roman after his death, and talks of reconciliation with an enemy that has no regrets and continues to repress."

LOP agrees!

Biscet indicated that he had a lamentable opinion of Ortega and his actions since the Church should always be on the side of the suffering.

"I believe the leadership of the Church has not understood that demanding changes from the government is a fundamental right of people," Biscet declared.

Well said, brother!

In Havana,[Oscar Elias] Biscet and Berta Soler, spokesperson for the Ladies in White, criticized the comments made by Ortega.

Soler said, "To call those men delinquents are the words the Cuban government uses. I do not agree and ask myself: Where did Ortega get the information to call them that? Regarding the releases, we spoke on behalf of only a few prisoners, not all of them."

EXACTLY!

Members of the opposition inside and outside of Cuba emphatically rejected the recent statements in the U.S. by Cardinal Jaime Ortega Alamino, Archbishop of Havana, who classified as "delinquents" the 13 opposition members who occupied a church in Havana and were violently removed shortly before the papal visit.

Shame on Ortega!

Speaking at Harvard University earlier this week, Cardinal Jaime Ortega, the Archbishop of Havana, had very kind words for the Castro dictatorship and its so-called reforms. At the same time, Cardinal Ortega, who stressed the importance of "reconciliation" amongst Cubans, curiously chose to viciously attack human rights activists in Cuba, calling them "low class delinquents" who were doing the bidding of exiles in Miami.

The Cardinal's statements serve as further proof that the Catholic Church in Cuba has been completely compromised and has taken on the vile role of advocate for the Castro government. This despicable development is felt most by Cuba's growing opposition movement both in Cuba and throughout the world. These human rights activists have not only lost the Church as an ally in their struggle for liberty and respect for human rights on the island, but in Cardinal Ortega, they have gained another powerful enemy who actively seeks their marginalization, their subjugation, and ultimately, their destruction.

After learning of the Cardinal's remarks, leaders in the Cuba human rights movement have expressed their emphatic rejection of the Archbishop's statements.

ORTEGA: Sera Cardinal pero no deja de ser ŅANGARA!

Una abominacion dentro de la Iglesia, al igual que los condenados curas paedofilos!

In Miami, Radio Mambi journalist and member of the Cuba Liberty Council, Ninoska Perez-Castellon, lamented that Ortega had not directed his concerns towards the Castro brothers.

Que pena! Pudiera haber sido un buen lider Cristiano, pero decidio, como Poncio Pilatos, lavarse las manos y no defender a los Cristianos.

Kagetora vs Takeda grew to respect and understand each other but remained enemies.
It was never their destiny to destroy each other.
