After meeting with Pope Francis at the Vatican this month, Cuban dictator Raùl Castro was apparently so impressed that he claimed to be considering joining the Catholic Church. The May 10 audience lasted just under an hour but generated headlines — and criticism — around the world.

But the implications of the meeting are no laughing matter.

A high-ranking communist official who defected to the United States in the 1970s now says the Soviet KGB was behind the tidal wave of “liberation theology."
