Joe Morris Doss
July 30 - Let the Bastards Go — Saving Souls from Cuba

Joe Morris Doss had a small church in New Orleans with a few parishioners from Cuba. Cuba had long prevented its citizens from leaving that island, so when Fidel Castro unexpectedly started letting “the bastards” go, Joe’s parishioners asked him to help. What can a priest with a small congregation do in the midst of international events that would echo through US/Cuban relations for decades? Well, buy a retired navy cutter, hire a crew, raise some money, and head to Cuba to try to convince the Cuban government to let even more people go. Come and hear about this remarkable adventure, a moving story of immigration, risk, negotiating with an authoritarian government, and being church in the world. 

About Joe: Joe Morris Doss is a retired Episcopal Bishop and lawyer who at one time was consider the premier expert on death row penalty appeals. He is the founder of Death Penalty Focus, the largest abolition organization in the country. His play about the death penalty is slated for an eight city tour once the pandemic lifts.
