Pope Francis reinstates Marxist to the priesthood (update DTG)

by Fausta Rodriguez Wertz

Nicaraguan lib­er­a­tion the­ol­ogy advo­cate and mem­ber of Daniel Ortega’s inner cir­cle Miguel D’Escoto has been restored to the priest­hood.

He had been sus­pended by John Paul II (who knew a thing or two about Com­mu­nists) in 1985:

D’Escoto served as the Repub­lic of Nicaragua’s Min­is­ter for For­eign Affairs for more than a decade and cur­rently acts as Senior Adviser on For­eign Affairs to Pres­i­dent Daniel Ortega Saave­dra. He is still a mem­ber of the San­din­ista National Lib­er­a­tion Front (FSLN), a polit­i­cal move­ment rooted in Marx­ist phi­los­o­phy and which once had ties to the Soviet Com­mu­nist party.

D’Escoto received the 1987 “Lenin Peace Prize” from the Com­mu­nist Party of the Soviet Union.

As head of the U.N. Gen­eral Assem­bly, D’Escoto accused Israel of geno­cide in 1999,

The num­ber of vic­tims in Gaza is increas­ing by the day… The sit­u­a­tion is unten­able. It’s geno­cide,” d’Escoto said at the UN in New York.

An unre­pen­tant, active San­din­ista, serv­ing in the admin­is­tra­tion of anti-​American alleged child rapist Ortega, rein­stated?

The Code of Canon Law pro­hibits priests from hold­ing par­ti­san polit­i­cal offices.

D’Escoto con­tin­ues to hold office in both a polit­i­cal party and a régime.

Update: DTG: It’s not often that I find myself in dis­agree­ment with one of my writ­ers, but given that this priest is elderly and asked for rein­state­ment for the right to say the holy sac­ri­fice of the mass again before his death, not to men­tion that Fran­cis’ pon­tif­i­cate is known for push­ing repen­tance it is entirely con­sis­tent with his meth­ods to give a per­son another chance, par­tic­u­larly when they’ve served a sus­pen­sion of nearly 3 decades.

Nicaraguan liberation theology advocate and member of Daniel Ortega’s inner circle Miguel D’Escoto has been restored to the priesthood.

He had been suspended by John Paul II (who knew a thing or two about Communists) in 1985:

D’Escoto served as the Republic of Nicaragua’s Minister for Foreign Affairs for more than a decade and currently acts as Senior Adviser on Foreign Affairs to President Daniel Ortega Saavedra. He is still a member of the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN), a political movement rooted in Marxist philosophy and which once had ties to the Soviet Communist party.

D’Escoto received the 1987 “Lenin Peace Prize” from the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.

As head of the U.N. General Assembly, D’Escoto accused Israel of genocide in 1999,

“The number of victims in Gaza is increasing by the day… The situation is untenable. It’s genocide,” d’Escoto said at the UN in New York.

An unrepentant, active Sandinista, serving in the administration of anti-American alleged child rapist Ortega, reinstated?

The Code of Canon Law prohibits priests from holding partisan political offices.

D’Escoto continues to hold office in both a political party and a regime.

Update:   DTG:  It’s not often that I find myself in disagreement with one of my writers, but given that this priest is elderly and asked for reinstatement for the right to say the holy sacrifice of the mass again before his death, not to mention that Francis’ pontificate is known for pushing repentance it is entirely consistent with  his methods to give a person another chance, particularly when they’ve served a suspension of nearly 3 decades.
