The Alliance Of Baptists website states regarding Cuba One of the disturbing things about the Alliance Of Baptists is their condemning the USA but not Castro. The Alliance Of Baptists seems to have a close relationship with many Baptist Churches in Cuba (And I am not condemning these churches in that I am sure they endure hardships) but seems silent on the persecution of Non government endorsed house churches. There are some valid reasons to ease or end the embargo but the Alliance Baptist despite their close relationship with Cuban Christians seem silent on Cuban atrocities against Christians and that is very troubling. Their statement on Cuba at makes no call on Cuba to ease up on Christian groups and respect human rights. More from the Alliance of Baptists website Does the Alliance have no problem with Castro's murder of those who speak against him? Cuba is a police state! The Alliance of Baptists complaints from their website are all about how bad the US has been to Cuba but they are silent regarding Castro's persecution of believers and other political prisoners. The main cause of hardship in Cuba is Castro not the USA. If the Southern Baptist Convention had made similar statements about South Africa during it's years of Apartheid they would have been grilled as racists. I wrote Stan Hastey the executive director of the Alliance but got no response on why they are soft on Cuba. Why is the Alliance is mute on Christian persecution in Cuba?
