HAVANA, Cuba (Reuters) 1 May 2001 — Cuban prostitutes may be the target of a state campaign to prevent a sex trade on the Caribbean island but they can boast high educational standards, President Fidel Castro said on Monday.
“One day when I was down in Brazil, an Argentinian asked me ‘Is it true that some girls who are university graduates sometimes practice prostitution?”‘Castro said in a rare public reference to a highly sensitive subject for Cuba’s government.
“I replied instantly, without thinking, ‘That proves prostitutes in Cuba have a university level,’ ” he added, laughing at the anecdote given during a lengthy speech to close a Cuban workers’ congress in Havana.
Cuba is rife with prostitution which is a mainstay of sexual tourism. La prostitución infantil (child prostitution), chiefly during the “special period”, is still available to sex tourists that have the money. Cubans call prostitutes jineteras (female) and jineteros (male). These terms derive from the Spanish verb jinetear (to mount a horse). This is what godless socialism has done for Cuba and Cuba is paying it forward to Venezuela.
There are people who prostitute themselves because they love the money. But, in the main, prostitution in any country tracks the poverty level. The greater the poverty, the more prevalent the prostitution.
Is socialism the true evil? No, socialism is but a tool of the master: communism. Communism is idolatry in which communist tyrants posit themselves as providers of all the people need, a role in direct opposition to the true provider, Jehovah Jireh, the Lord our Provider. To reinforce his rigid communistic vision for China, Xi Jinping assumes the mantle of Mao Zedong and seeks to rid the country of Christianity.
What do I see in the near future? I see China moving in to support the corrupt, tyrannical president of Venezuela. I also anticipate China underpinning the communist Cuban government.
We all want a peaceful, prosperous future for ourselves and our progeny, but such will not be the case. As the Lord Jesus prophesied, there will be wars, rumors of wars, damaging earthquakes throughout the world, famines, and plagues.
Venezuelans actually chose socialism, that is to say, the lower class Amerindians voted for Hugo Chavez who was able to keep his campaign promises until the oil company ran out of money. The same people who voted in the socialists got what they wanted, but now don’t want what they got.
We who are members of the Body of Christ will overcome all difficulties and even prosper while others fail. Hay venezolanos prósperos por doquiera. These prosperous Venezuelans generally are Christians. They have either moved their wealth and themselves out of Venezuela or adapted to conditions by means of clever workarounds.
And there was a famine in the land, beside the first famine that was in the days of Abraham…Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the Lord blessed him. Genesis 12:1-12 KJV
The above predictions will be very bad news for those unprepared. How does one prepare for such disasters? The only way to prepare, to overcome all the evil that will befall us, is to come into a personal relationship with the King of Kings, Jesus Christ.
