Efforts by the United States government to disrupt unity between Cuban religions and the Revolution have a long history. Attempts have been made to manipulate ties between religious institutions and the state on several occasions, over the past 60 years.
But the current administration of Donald Trump – along with resuscitating the Monroe Doctrine and expanding subversive projects in Cuba – has been more explicit about its intention of promoting division.
The position of the Cuban government has been entirely ignored, and its express disposition, as stated by the Comandante en Jefe during a trip to Jamaica in 1977, to “work together, so that when the political idea triumphs, the religious is not set aside, or appears to be an enemy of change. No contradiction exists between the objectives of religion and the objectives of socialism.”
