Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

Cuban bishops to Castro government: Cuba called to be a plural society

2013-09-17

Limited economic freedoms are not enough. Cuban bishops expressed their criticisms in a letter to Raul Castro asking for deeper changes in the island nation. The letter is titled, "Hope does not let down.” It states that "there must be a right to diversity, with tolerance for different thinking.” It added that, "hopes for a better future include a new political order,” because Cuba is called to be a "plural society.”       

The letter ends saying, "a collaborative State must definitively replace the paternalist State.”  Cuban parishes read out the letter throughout the island this past Sunday

The text also criticizes the poverty forced on Cubans by the lack of opportunity, and the frailty of salaries which, "are not enough to respectably raise a family.” 

To achieve these changes, the bishops proposed the creation of dialogue between Cubans, and between Cubans and the rest of the world, especially the United States. 

Bishops issued the letter 20 years after they published another titled, "Love can conquer all.” At that time, they asked Fidel Castro for greater reforms and freedom in Cuba.
