August 7, 1960: Castro banned all religious TV and radio broadcasts in Cuba


On this day in 1960, Fidel Castro banned all religious TV and radio broadcasts.   It was a reaction to The Catholic Church condemning the rise of communism in Cuba.
Not much later, the Catholic schools were closed and I remember that.   Our beloved Maristas in was closed and some of the clergy expelled.    I lived through all of that.
Years later, I learned that the school grounds became Villa Maristas, or the place where political prisoners like Armando Valladares were tortured.
