Castro Admits 'Injustice' for Gays and Lesbians During Revolution

By Shasta Darlington, CNN

Havana, Cuba (CNN) -- Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro said he acknowledges the persecution of gays and lesbians during the Revolution in his country, according to a newspaper interview published Tuesday.

Throughout the 1960s and '70s, Cuba sent openly gay men to labor camps without charge or trial.

"They were moments of great injustice, great injustice!" Castro told journalist Carmen Lira Saade from the Mexican daily La Jornada. "If someone is responsible, it's me."

Oh wow. So beat him with a wet noodle.
The Old Fcuker gonna die pretty soon anyway. Maybe he's looking for absolution?

In case anyone hasn't noticed by now, Communists are NOT friends of gays.
Nor of free elections, free press, freedom of assembly, freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of...well anything at all.

"Forgive me, Padre, it has been 67 years since my last confession. I confess that I have screwed people out of their basic freedoms for a good long while and I wish to make amends."

"Bless you, my son. For your penance you must make a speech and recite three Hail Marys."

"Errr . . . padre, couldn't I just drink 3 Bloody Marys and skip the speech?"
