As is usually the case, Mr Paulsen has given the obligatory interview to Prensa Latina, the Castro regime’s official news agency.
And sure enough, he has been most enthusiastic about his official hosts.
According to the Prensa Latina dispatch, Mr Paulsen said he had been impressed by the level of religious freedom he had encountered in Cuba, not just for his fellow Seventh Day Adventists, you understand, but for all religions.
"I am very happy to have been able to visit Cuba because now I can travel around the world telling them that the perception people have of religious persecution in Cuba is not true,” he said.
Further proof, I think, that being a man of God does not necessarily make you wise.
