Murillo extends his “religiosity” to all of Nicaragua with altars to the Virgin Mary

The dictatorship of Daniel Ortega and Rosario Murillo was in charge of spreading their supposed “religiosity” and Catholic Christianity throughout the country. Within the framework of the festivities to the Immaculate Conception of María, patron saint of Nicaragua, she ordered the State institutions to install altars and the mayors to carry out a series of activities at the local level.

According to publications by the regime’s propaganda media, altars to the Virgin Mary were “inaugurated” in various municipalities of the country in various municipalities of León, Carazo, Chontales, Rivas, Nueva Segovia, Jinotega, El Rama, Managua and Estelí. In Masaya they have set up their parallel activities to the festivities in honor of San Jerónimo.

The official Canal 8 highlighted on its website that the altars and the “Christmas atmosphere” that the Ortega Murillo regime has imposed in the capital and all the municipalities of the country are for “families to enjoy Christmas in peace, love and harmony”. .

This rush of the dictatorship to fill the country with religious altars of the Catholic tradition occurs in a context of repression, persecution and imprisonment against leaders of the Church. The regime keeps a dozen priests, seminarians and laymen in its jails. One of them is losing his vision and hearing due to the confinement, Father Uriel Vallejos recently denounced.

Monsignor Rolando Álvarez, bishop of the Diocese of Matagalpa, is one of the 12 imprisoned religious men accused of common crimes or “destabilizing the country” by the Daniel Ortega dictatorship. So far, the Public Ministry has not presented a formal accusation against the prelate.

The report “Nicaragua: A Persecuted Church?” collects 396 attacks by the regime against the Catholic Church from April 2018 to November 16 of this year. The document warns that the repression of Ortega and Murillo could increase in the coming months.

The 2018-2021 reports on religious freedom from the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRFfor its acronym in English), accused the dictatorial regime of Daniel Ortega and Rosario Murillo of violating the religious freedom and worship of Nicaraguans, while condemning the attacks by fanatical supporters against the Church.
