Everyone seems to forget that the Catholic Church was one of the driving anti-Communist, anti-Marxist forces in the world during the 20th century.

I remember Pope John Paul II REALLY chewing out those bearded Che Guevara wannabees (including some stinking, vile priests steeped in liberation theology as well) right there on the tarmac at Managua International Airport when he walked straight into the belly of the beast of red Nicaraguan Sandinism. I remember him really chewing that one priest out (Cardinale?) and wagging a finger at him over this socialism and persecution of the Church they were all indulging in. Back then in Managua, you had these two sets of churches there. Legitimate Catholic churches and Cathedrals, and then you had illegimate marxist parishes with hammers and sickles in lieu of Jesus.

Cdl Maradiaga was one of the contenders for Pope when JPII died. He had a pretty good shot at it, too.

He’s been very good in all of this miserable Honduran affair.

Godspeed Cardinal Rodriguez Maradiaga. You are a courageous man.

During the papal election back in 2005, I heard dyed-in-the-wool liberal Catholics I knew just drooling over this guy; they so wanted him to be Pope. I had the gut feeling that he wasn’t quite the lefty model, but still for him to come out so strong against the Bolivarians should tell you how bad the situation has become, down there.

I lift my voice in prayer that this cardinal is protected by our dear Lord’s mighty Hand.
