Quote of the Day

"The Catholic Church has taken a hardline position against right-wing dictatorships. But in Cuba, the Church has been silent – or worse – ever since 1960, when Fidel Castro expelled hundreds of Catholic priests because they alerted their parishioners of the communist danger surfacing in government circles."

Former political prisoner Armando Valladares, writing in The Wall Street Journal about the current visit to the US by Pope Benedict XVI.
