Fr. Ernesto Cardenal

An older Che Guevara?
No. It's Fr. Ernesto Cardenal.

On April 16th, Xavier University in Cincinnati will welcome Father Ernesto Cardenal, a noted Liberation Theologian, Marxist politician and rebel against Papal authority. Father Cardenal will be reading poetry of his own composition, included a poem inspired by Darwin titled “The Origin of Species,” in the campus Bellarmine Chapel.

The presentation is annouced here.

Besides his dissident theological opinions, Father Cardenal also worked closely with the avowedly Marxist and patently anti-Catholic Sandinista revolutionary movement in Nicaragua. His exploits, including the founding of a revolutionary commune, which was later converted into a communist guerilla force,1 garnered the attention of the Sandinista leadership. After the successful revolution, he was appointed to the position of Minister of Culture in the newly-formed Sandinista regime.

The question remains: Why is this man being invited to a Catholic university?  What possible reason could there be?

According certain self-appointed Catholic apologist, if you are in Fr. Cardenal's parish, you must attend.  :pazzo:

This goofball doesn't have a parish, does he?

He's a Jesuit. I read somewhere that his brother (Fernando Cardenal, SJ and former militant Sandinista cabinet member) has also recovered his faculties and rejoined the Jesuits! I hope that's not the case.

I think this is the same guy in that famous picture where John Paul II is supposedly admonishing him on the tarmac of an airport:

Is it typical to genuflect on your right knee to the Pope? I was under the impression that one generally only genuflects on the right knee for Christ in the tabernacle.
