Socialism is Practical Christianity   

http://www.thechristianleft.org/

First thing a minute of searching popped up.  I knew something would be out there.



The big dog , if he/she exists does not give two fucks about 401Ks.  The big dog , if he/she exists also would care if dogs helped other dogs.  I consider both statements true. 

Socialism resonates the love your neighbor as you love yourself message.  To love your neighbor as you love yourself and get change back from your dollar.  That is what it is all about!

My father told me socialism and Christianity were about the same.  He also saw differences but I'll say, true Christians and true socialists do have something in common. 

Both are rare.

   Yep.

The problem is that most people who talk the Christian talk do not walk the Christian talk.


If you believe in Christianity as espoused by most modern Christian sects, it was a miracle.

Miracle or not, it's still giving away Free Food to Poor People.  It's like the SNAP Card program on steroids.

Jesus is like the POTUS.  John & Paul are the Speaker of the House and President Pro Temp of the Senate.  The rest of the disciples are the members of CONgress.  Now, they could have given the fishies to the Military to beef that up, or they could have voted to give themselves a raise.  They could have Privatized the Fishies and sold them off to any of the Sermon attendees who could afford them.  But they didn't do any of that.  They GAVE the fishies to Poor People!

Did Jesus charge through the nose for his medical services when he went around helping the blind to see and the crippled to walk?  No, he performed his services for free.  Did Jesus have a big McMansion and the best new Camel to ride around on?  No, he lived just as poor or poorer than his patients.

You don't get more Socialist than Jesus.

RE
The few times Jesus encountered the oppressive Roman Empire, he rebuked his follower for trying to rise up against them and let them beat and kill him. He also told people to keep paying them taxes. All this considering he could have just as easily called on a legion of angels to destroy the politicians and banksters of the day and start fresh. Yeah, sounds like quite the socialist revolutionary to me...

Another cafeteria Christian announces himself.

     


Well said, RE ✨ and Surly ✨.

Agelbert NOTE: Ashvin is a lawyer. He claims to be a Christian but every post he makes, like the one above, proves that he is a Capitalist 😈 lover of money.

Faith,
if it has not works, is dead, being alone.
