Dr. Óscar Elías Biscet launches online news magazine

"You have learnt how it was said: 'Eye for eye and tooth for tooth.' But I say to you, Offer the wicked man no resistance. If anyone strikes you on the right cheek, turn the other also; if a man takes you to law and would have your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. And if anyone orders you to go one mile, go two miles with him." Matthew 5.38-41

Dr. Óscar Biscet  launches online news magazine Revealing Cuba [Revelando Cuba] on August 8, 2012 with interviewing Baptist pastor and blogger Mario Félix Lleonart who is a resident of Taguayabon, Cuba. Inspired by the Bible he proposes a Christianity that liberates from all that oppresses and overwhelms. He also cites Dietrich Bonhoeffer as one of his influences. Bonhoeffer was a twentieth century exemplar of Christian nonviolence.
