+  Register Recap: Cuban Cardinal was a truly remarkable Churchman

  • Description: Cardinal Jaime Ortega, the former cardinal of Havana, passed away on July 26 following a battle with cancer. He served the country in a time when the Church faced intense pressure from Castro's regime and is remembered for doing for that country what John Paul II did in Europe. Some Cuban refugees, however, feel he was not forceful enough against Castro. We talk with Matthew Bunson and also look at a new bill to stop federally-funded embryonic stem cell research.
