In a seminar at the University of California-Los Angeles in recent days, the featured speaker likened Argentinian doctor and Fidel Castro’s fellow guerrilla fighter to Jesus Christ, a glorification long controversial because of the revolutionary figure’s involvement in the executions and torture of Cubans who were considered traitors.

UCLA Professor Emeritus of Art History David Kunzle, who was invited by the university’s religion department, according to Campus Reform, told the audience at the lecture: “Che Guevara, once the epitome of armed struggle, has evolved to an avatar of justice, peace, and love, as Jesus always was but no longer is exclusively.”

The presentation was called: “Chesucristo: The Fusion in Image and Word of Che Guevara and Jesus Christ.”

Kunzle depicted Guevara as “a quasi-divine cosmic force.”

Kunzle has delivered similar talks before at various universities.
