    Romero was a communist who used the Church for his own selfish ends.

    If you knew the whole story behind Romero instead of believing the “official’ line you might not be so fast in judging him. He was killed by his gov’t for doing the works of his faith including trying to protect those targeted for death by the government. Wake up and realize that very often official tales by any gov’t are often just that, lies.
