What Religion Is Che Guevara?
Che Guevara is one of the most well known political activists of the 20th century. He was a revolutionary and a leader in the Cuban Revolution and later in other countries. He is iconic for his stylized visage, found on t-shirts and other memorabilia. Despite his prominence, his religion is a controversial topic. Che’s Catholic upbringing and his later rejection of religion has given way to speculation as to what his beliefs were.
Che’s father was Roman Catholic and Che was baptized as a child in accordance with his family’s faith. Growing up, he was an active Catholic but as a young adult, he began to question the church’s role in politics and social issues. He began to reject organized religion and said he no longer followed any particular faith. However, this does not mean he abandoned religion entirely. He held onto the values and principles that had been instilled in him as a Catholic.
Not all of Che’s beliefs were contradictory to Catholicism. He was a strong advocate for social justice and economic reform, both of which are found in the teachings of Jesus. He often spoke of the need to go beyond “bourgeois morality” and engage in acts of charity and service to others. This can be seen in his own selfless acts of helping the poor and sick, and his continued involvement in revolutionary causes.
In the end, Che Guevara’s beliefs remain a mystery. While he may not have held on to organized religion, he certainly held on to the values and principles that were instilled in him through his Catholic upbringing.
