Cardinals or Soldiers? / Agustín Valentín López Canino

Cardinals or Soldiers? / Agustín Valentín López Canino
Agustín Valentín López Canino

What ranks in the military hierarchy would correspond to the equivalent
of Cardinal? Commander of the Revolution? General? Colonel of State
Security? Minister of Defense? Deputy Chief of Army? Could he have won
the last ascent for the sacrilegious statements about the 13 unhappy
people, with their lives ruined because of the great Revolution; those
who entered the Church in supplication for their rights, and who were
locked behind bars, by the miserable and abominable behavior of the State.

Mercy, Lord, mercy, Lord … ?!

The Cardinal shameless already exceeds the Inquisition. There have been
hundreds of years of evolution. The spit of a Cardinal on the poor and
humble, in these times because of the human condition, is to commit the
same outrage as judges of the Inquisition.

And many who conceived the Catholic God today prefer to be burned at the
stake like the Indian Hatuey: "If you Spanish are going to heaven, I
want to go to hell." Today the sensitive Indian rebel would say: "If you
Cardinals go to heaven, hell would be a paradise."

May God forgive them and forgive me because I can not forgive them. My
holiness is not so great, while my eye is on my Cubans within and at the
bottom, forced by cardinals with military ranks and Communist ideologies
to lose salvation.

"But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it
were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and
that he were drowned in the depth of the sea."
