Fifty years ago, when Castro took over Cuba and instituted a Communist Dictatorship, he tried to close down the Catholic Faith there, forcing many into fleeing the country. The Pope then (I think it was John XXIII) excommunicated him. A month ago the current Pope, Benedict XVI, went to Cuba and met with Castro. Two weeks later, those very same religious exiles in Miami turn on Ozzie Guillen for saying Castro is remarkable for having lasted so long. Are these people really mad at the pope and taking it out on Ozzie?
Background: Ozzie Guillen, after a distinguished career as a player, is the current manager of the Miami Marlins, a Major League Baseball team. The Pope is the guy who wears anachronous head gear.
Many Cuban exiles in Miami have vowed to boycott the Marlins' games in their brand new statium because of what Ozzie said. Yet, they still go to church on Sunday.
