Cuban Pastor and Wife Sentenced to Jail for Homeschooling Their Children
A crowd of two dozen people protested outside the Embassy of Cuba in Washington in 95-degree heat Wednesday in support of Pastor Ramon Rigal, who on April 25 was sentenced to one year in prison for the "crime" of homeschooling his own kids in the communist island nation. Rigal's wife, Adya, was sentenced to a year of house arrest.

The group attempted to deliver a CitizenGo petition signed by nearly 31,000 people demanding better of the Cuban government. Embassy officials refused to receive them and turned them away.

Mike Donnelly, an attorney and director of global outreach for the Virginia-based Home School Legal Defense Association, decried the Cuban government's actions. ...

Pastor Mario Lleonart, a Cuban pastor who very recently immigrated the United States recounted how Christian children in Cuba are routinely mocked and mistreated for their faith. The government restricts churches from opening education centers of their own.

When Lleonart was five years old he went to a government school. The principal came to his class during the first week asked the class if any of the students were religious and believed in God.

"The way he asked, it was as if he was asking 'who is drug addict, who is a thief?'"

Lleonart, who now blogs at CubanoConfesante, said he would so scared at the time to say he was a Christian but he felt like he had denied the Lord like Peter did before Christ was crucified. The experience was so traumatizing for him that he told himself he would never back down from his faith again.

The Cuban education system brainwashes children, he added, ordering them to chant political slogans where they proclaim themselves to be "pioneers of communism" and "we will be like Che Guevara."

We must not forget that Cuba is, in essence, a Communist Marxist country, and that has not changed despite the diplomatic recognition of it by the USA, and the deal cobbled together by Obama, Pope Francis and Raul Castro.

Such regimes do not take kindly to folks that do not wish their children to be indoctrinated in the State schools. It is a miracle that this Pastor and his wife were allowed to get away with homeschooling for so long.

We must pray for them and their children, who now, contrary to their parents wishes, while their father is in prison, and their mother confined at home, will no doubt be carted off to the State school to receive their Marxist indoctrination!

Cuba might listen to President Trump on freeing this pastor. Cuba should be a little nervous that Trump might want to modify the Obama-Pope Francis-Castro accord.
Freedom House wrote:
Cuba is a one-party communist state that outlaws political pluralism, represses dissent, and severely restricts freedoms of the press, assembly, speech, and association. The government of Raúl Castro, who succeeded his brother Fidel as president in 2008, monopolizes the bulk of economic activity within centralized and inefficient state enterprises. Increased engagement with the United States under the administration of President Barack Obama did not result in the lifting of restrictions.
